SA Sat 9th Nov Cruise Comments

Hey all,

Yet again another rather good cruise, with a fairly decent turn out, now I gotta start to think about where the next cruise will take us, I was thinking of a more northern cruise this time around as per Mr Brock's suggestion.
Here are the cars that turned up other than myself of course
-Red EF Fairmont (RedEF's)
-Red EB XR8 (HotEF's)
-Red ED GLi (RedED's)
-Silver Brock EA (MrBrock's)
-Silver EA Fairmont Ghia (EAGhiabloke)
-Metallic Blue EB XR8 (blueoval's)
-EB XR8 (XR8XTC)
-Of course the silver BA Fairmont Ghia

Four of the Suzuki GTi club members also joined us which was a bit of fun too
Hope you all enjoyed it!
Chris

Must say was a most enjoyable cruise :) did anyone do anything further after bunnings finish, or did every1 head home.

Just one person u forgot Chris, was Trev (XR8XTC) in his Black EBXR8. That was a pretty decent way to leave the bay :D

Anyways, up north would be fine for next time, but i still think you should have a central meeting point, cos i dont wanna drive all the way out north for the meetup, to start heading back south. Central meeting points work best, and then head off wherever.

my 2c

Lee

Any 1 have any footage/pics?
no number plates please :)

It was a little slow through the hills i thought..
I dont wanna be racing along as i dont think every1 would be up for that - but we were crawling..
cruise the streets but pick up the pace for the hills..

Hopefully every1 got past the cops on anzac highway alrite?
i went a longer way home.

Yeah but one poor matey got busted when he jumped up on to eagle on the hill.
your car looks sick btw xr8xtc I love it!
The way to go is like the bikers you cruise up and down the caining road (eagle) to scope it out then you go hard.
However if on the next cruise I see people trying to drift I'm stopping. I drive fast but not beyond my cars ability (pretty average at the moment) or my own.

I think some discussion has to be made about burnouts being done at meeting places tho.... I know i am not one to talk but I dont think we are gonna keep getting away with some1 bagging it up, then every1 sitting around for a bit before leaving. That is mainly why i left on saturday because i thought the coppers may come after Mr Brock was (trying) to light the tires up :)
Perhaps we say when every1 is leaving the meeting point you could let them rip instead of when we first arrive.
Sounds a little soft i know, does any1 agree or disagree with what i am saying? I dont want a defect basically.

Didnt some1 have a video camera going? was it Lee? can we get any footage off of that perhaps? I am definately gonna borrow a camera for the next meet so we can get some pics up.

Burnouts on public streets or carparks is a great way to f%^k up the whole car movement.
The whole country knows a stock Ford 6 on, will light up the rear if provoked enough, so theres no point doing it and risking someone driving past and running off your numbers to the police.
Apart from that why risk your driveline or bodywork? Dont you like your car?
Keep it for where its been okayed and we can maybe all run our beefed up cars on cruises and in groups and not draw the attention of the B.I.B. Sounds like a cry but it wears thin being tarred with the same brush as a pretender who thinks everyones air should smell like his arse end getting ripped up.

Ive never understood why the dickhead on the corner cant seem to turn off at the end of my street in his VN/P 5.0 Statelyman without bagging it up but I can turn into or out of my street in the pissin rain in my ute and not embarrass myself.

Sorry for the highjacking... I dont even have an E series!!!

I agree burnouts are cool and I like to watch them but in the real world they cause more trouble than good.
The last thing I want is to be on a cruise and have 1 guy do a burnout and then have the cops jump on all of us.
The reason most 4cyl ricers have dramas with the cops is because they like to have meets and cruises and someone with a powerfull car has to show it off.
I'll try and get my hands on my mates digital vid camera for some internet car porn.

i think the point here you don't do burnouts in places where either you're going to be staying for a while or where it's gonna piss heaps of people off......

i've heard of massive burnout meets that the cops never find, and they didn't cause any trouble........

theres my 2 cents anyways

SOG

btw im with xr8xtc i don't wanna be defected
