Well what a day, decided to go and checkout the SCR cruise and meetup in Olympic Park and there were heaps of cars. Even better that there were heaps of Fords and familiar faces from Fordforums and the FPV-Tickford Club.
Here are the Fordies that turned up and gee did we make a presence. kenoath, tickin, mr plow, stretch, xrfalcon and missxr.
Firstly i'd like to thank the organisers of SCR for hosting and organising a great cruise, i found that everyone was very friendly and sets a good example to others that car enthusiasts can still get along despite owning different brands of cars.
Anyways, heres some of the highlights. Left Olympic Park at 10am and drove via King Georges Rd to the Sutherland area. We all took it pretty easy as there was heaps of traffic and raining.
But by the time we were at teh Royal National Park oooh the fun started happening. Last time i cruised through there was in the EF wagon and "bi-croicky"(tm) the difference is dead set chalk n cheese. The XR6 handles sooooo well, i was amazed that some of the smaller cars couldn't keep up around the corners. After the twisties had finished i felt like turning around and doing the drive all over again because it was that much fun. No more just straight line strider it's twisties strider now as well i'm hooked.
Oh yeah it was quite fun to give the hurry up to a VP Commo around the twisties. I could see him going to the limit while the XR had an abundance of grip and braking power.
After the Royal National Park drive, we cruised into Wollongong and stopped to gather the group. Then after that the Fordies decided to drive to Maccas for some lunch. We then headed back to the rest of the group and then were on our way to Maquarie Pass. Stopped at a pie shop there then headed home via the hume. Overall a very top and satisfying cruise.
