XA - you are dead right - car people in Melbourne do SFA with their cars, although I've got to say the e-series are often out there, and so is anyoneand everyone who drives a Holden.

The older Ford crowd just don't seem to have any 'get up and go'. Complacency?

Club Ford X Plus usually have something going. And usually post advice of cruises on here too. Check out the link Pearly has provided.

Hey XA

A friend of mine was killed last Saturday in a car accident on the eastern freeway and because he was a car enthusiast himself we are planning a cruise in his memory this coming Sunday at 1:30 pm meeting at the Burvale hotel (corner of Springvale rd and burwood hwy). He was part of melbccr and also a starion group. There will be a number of turbo cars there but it would be great to see some real cars there also We are not really sure where we are going yet, it will depend on the weather. If it is a nice day we might cruise down to Sorrento. Again it is pretty short notice and will not be a very organized day or anything but it would be great to see everyone there. All are welcome.

Dave

We (Falcon G.T. Club of Geelong Inc.) had our Club Breakup today at Eastern Gardens in Geelong. It was a great day, good weather, good company and good times.

okay people gather round


this nice weather is just too much - us mexicans just cant afford to waste it! Soooooooo i propose that we all get together for a cruise this Sunday.

A bbq seems to be a pretty popular way to do things and gives us some incentive to get where we are going

as for where we go to...any suggestions??? queenscliff or healesville have been suggested, as well as arthurs seat, phillip island and sorrento. Any ideas/opinions are more than welcome!

We want a good turn out to this one so lets make it worth going!!!! I like the idea of water in the background...makes for good photos!!!

okay lets get this ball rolling...who's interested???
