Went and had a look at *yawn*
Summernats last night, or should I say the Ricenats or the Commodoreswithwingsnats. Inside EPIC it was very quiet only about a dozen cars circulating, not much action happening except for a bunch of yobbos trying very hard (and loudly) to encourage a well endowed girl to lift her top that she was barely wearing anyway. A few cars were cutting loose doing a few burnouts where obviously the security was a bit lax but they soon stopped that when the security guards closed the internal gates and stopped anybody from cruising within the complex at about 10pm.
I decided that Braddon was the go so I cruised down there and it was much more lively but mostly with full sick moight rice and Crumbledores. I probably saw half a dozen half decent Fords all night and a zillion ricers, rotaries and Commies.
There were no burnouts happening as there was quite a large police presence. To their credit (the cops) they weren't going ballistic booking or defecting everybody they were just mingling with the crowd and making themselves be seen so that people wouldn't do burnouts and stuff.
Interesting fords that I saw include Garry Meyer's Mustang, a blown V8 TC or TD Cortina and a Mad Max replica XC coupe in matt black primer, no grille complete with two large fuel tank looking things in the back just like the original. I tried to take a picture but it didn't turn out (black cars don't photograph well at night for some reason!). A couple of 32-34 Ford hotrods that had been at previous Nats were there as well. There was also a tubbed V8 Bronco which looked kinda cool. There was an EB or ED Falcon that I thought was Kelli's at first, had similar mags, similar colour but looking at the back of it it was only a GLi with an XR front. The giveaway of course was the lack of neon ;ight emmitting from it! :s6:
All in all pretty disapointing so far. As I said the ricers and Crumbledores seem to outnumber anything else by at least 10:1.
I'll try and get some photos in the daylight and post them here when I get a chance.
