Howdy menace,

I too was most satisfied with the turn-out, not to mention the weather. Even Acid seemed quite impressed and will be continuing as our Victorian organiser. Whether we got quite up to 20 members was debatable (if so, not all at the same time).

Some pics will be up within a day or so.

hehe no worries...

About the mirrors, I just checked and they were supposed to go to Thanatos. And unfortunately Sundeep couldn't make it to buy my old sunvisors (and I'm sure he would have loved to meet Bass Crazy, except he couldn't be there either...). :)

What a great day! Good to meet some new members and catch up with the regulars. The weather couldn't have been better.

Looking at the cars in a line I couldn't help but notice I was the only guy that still has 14' wheels with hubcaps :) Not for long though, I came home to discover that my bro's car is going to be wrecked, so I will take his S-pak wheels and also a few other things that I need to fix on my car.

The new h/u will definately be installed by the next meet too which will be great. Next after that, the suspension will cop some serious attention, and then it will be on to the smaller mods for my baby.

Had every intention to make it today but last night i split my radiator hose, so the EB was leaking vital fluids while i'm watching the temp gauge almost going into the red zone - thank god i was like 2 mins from my house when it happened.

Hope you guys took lotsa pics!

Yeah it was good to see a few new cars rock up to this cruise, and this time we cannot be dissapointed about the turn out, even though some regulars couldn't make it (jbolger, bass, blackeb, thegrk, I'm looking at all of u!!!). hehe relax i'm sure you all had resonable excuses.

One thing now though is that it has raised the expected turn out of any future gatherings, and what we considered to be a good turn out before will probably be considerd quite lame now.

One more thing, now we know when the best time and place for cruises are. Sunday afternoon on the EAST side!!! hehe

Very good meet guys :) I must admit, I was quite impressed, and won't hold ILS to closing down the site! On my count, the max was 18 EA's, an ED, an EB, and the EF/EL thing. They were all very nice cars, each has their own particular piece(s) thats special about them! Well done guys, and thanks for a great arvo :)
