Thumbs up Heathcote drags, 24/11

A few EA-ED cars attended the drags today. We had everything from an EA S to an EB 5 litre wagon, EB II V8 Fairmont, ED Fairmont (WhiteRyder making a welcome return after being unable to attend events for some months) and an ED XR6 from the Club arrived later in the day.

Here are some pictures:


Karl's EA and WhiteRyder's now lowered ED lining up, with Roity (the new owner of the Commodore Cruise Club) in his VT II SS in the background.


GhiaEB's EB Ghia, now with Club number plate surrounds.


PhoenixEB's EB Fairmont V8

Hey. A very enjoyable day was had by all. Great to see some older guys and their families come along too. Some misfortunes wth my belts meant I was reluctant to do too many runs.

Here are the time slips from my two runs.

Thumbs up was a good day

The day was a blast. It was pretty hot though, lucky there was no sunlight as it would have been sweltering. Good to meet / see some of you guys there.

I'm looking forward to a cooler day for some more.
:D
