Save MWB Datsun

Michael's dad drove this car into the desert many years ago to work on land he was purchasing through a land devolpment. While clearing trees, he had a very unfortunate accident and passed away in the desert. With The support of a large facebook group and the support of those who donated to the gofundme, we were able to get the car back to Wisconsin. Michael has been working on the car and has been able to get it to run and drive. Now we ask to help get the car completed and back on the road. He has located another donor car for most of pieces that were lost to time and the desert. please share and help. “The late Mark Wiley Blackburn (1955 - 1997) regularly drove his white 1980 Datsun B310 wagon from where he lived & worked in Las Vegas out to a property 2½+hrs away that he was renting-to-own in a planned-but-never-built residential area called “Meadorama”, 17mi south of Temple Bar Marina, AZ. While his body was being recovered by the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office & taken to the county seat in Kingman AZ for cremation, the decision was made by the authorities to leave the vehicle on site... ...where it has sat undisturbed ever since... It is the wish & intent of Michael Wiley Blackburn, his wife Kerilyn Blackburn, his sister Lalani Bill (Blackburn), and her husband TJ Bill to relocate & recover the vehicle from the desert & return it to Michael’s home in Hartford WI for repair & eventual full restoration.”
