Just thought I would let the Brisbane based guys know that my dad has just taken ownership of Total Ford wreckers at Loganholme.
PLENTY of cheap EA Parts....
Not trying to sell anything, just letting you know that if you want anything....go there and ask for Paul, tell him Anthony sent you and he will look after you if you know what I mean...
Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Do you think it would be at all possible to make up some sort of Identification for us EA-ED guys to use at times like this? I think it would be a really good idea, because as the club grows, im sure with a bit of assistance and regular custom from us blokes businesses like Ford Wreckers, performance parts dudes and the like would only be too happy to help us out with discounts and the like, in return for things like advertising on the site, small stickers or whatever on the cars.....u name it
I've been thinking of this too... It would be good to negotiate with businesses, trade advertisements with discounts and special offers, etc. And then we will put up an associate directory page on the website for all EA-ED members. And the EF-EL members too if they wish to participate.
I also had ideas of a directory page with mechanics, performance workshops and the like to be listed, but only ones suggested by satisfied members who have been there and have had experience with them. And also to do similar negotiations with these people too.
What do you all think? This of course would have to be a bit further down the track, maybe once we have registered ourselves.
So what would be the first step in organising something like this. Identification to the club itself would be as easy as printing a batch of business cards with club logo and the like, perhaps we can think of that when we all have to donate when we register?
I was also thinking, instead of having to worry about the hassles with mail order for stickers, number plate surrounds etc, i'd much prefer that when the time comes for me to pay for membership to the club, these items get put on top of that price and I get it as 'merchandise' for joining the club. Up here, in queensland, various holden clubs have this idea in place and it seems to work rather well.......just a thought
I'll leave the decision up to the Treasurer. However, what I envisaged was a new page within the web site that would enable the online purchase of merchandise, in addition to State Reps able to make bulk orders on behalf of their members - this would in turn minimise postage costs.
