LOL! I was the same way, I still ain't the know it all but from experience I'm learning.
Your 82 is a L28 some say it's 180 horse but it only has 130 at the wheels, 2+2 is your back seats, their are two seaters and ours (2+2) four seaters.

You can smoke most (98%) 6 cylinders and some 8 cylinders. Gas isn't too great but who cares the cars bit##en.

Easy to work on, get your hands dirty.
Anything else?

The best thing you can do is get yourself a Datsun factory shop manual for your car. It will have all the information you need to work on your car. You can find original paper copies on ebay. Reprints are available as are CD versions. Search the archives for the sources of these.
