Hmm, this ones a big one... And because of financial reasons I won't be able to go. It's a little too soon as well, my boot display is under construction as well and I have promised I wouldn't go to any meets/cruises until it was finished. But have a great time guys, you'll all love it.

Oh and as for the great ocean road, its BLOODY LONG, and takes a little while before you actually see anything good, the first 50kms or so, probably less I can't remember is still inland, so you have to drive a fair way before you get to the coast. The inland part is boring, nothing to see. I can put up some photos of it if you like...

Sounds good Acid maybe push the date back further to the next week , getting my car lowered and new tyres. So want better handling for the twisty bits. I agree on one thing with the goodz that the scenary is boring but screw the scenery just drag each other(to the speed limit) and have fun with driving there. Its a nice long drive but the only bad bit is the geelong road, for the last 10 years i have been going down that road it is always under F__KING construction, and there are speed cameras everywhere. Why dont the just ever finish it plus the road is really dangerous. But any wayz good plan.

Not picking holes just my two cents worth.

Looks like going to miss my first cruise for a few reasons, 1. work 2. car , but would have been a great drive. I think within the next few weeks if some ppl want to meet up for a fri night cruise that would be all good, nothing offiical. Acid can u look into that one as well?

Goddamn it!!!

I'm lowering my car this saturday. It sounds like it should be a really good cruise, though...

The general consensus seems to be to push the date back, so is this an option???

I'd love to make it to this one!!!!

Like madEAs, i'm going to miss my first cruise. Why? I will be in Tasmania. However if I wasn't in Tassie I would be working so I can't win. Oh well, have fun guys.
