There's a whole bunch of guys from LS1.com heading there for the weekend, and I was wondering if anyone here was planning to go?

If so, it'd be great to put loyalties aside for one night, and meet up to drink a whole lot of beers :) I can't remember the name of the pub we went to last year, but all the drivers + teams ended up there on the sunday night (it's on the corner, near heaps of restaraunts - someone might know the place - Irish pub maybe??).

Scary! I thought ya woulda tried converting him! :D

BTW - one of the freakiest cars I've seen in a long time was Ford powered - a little 1972 Toyota Corrola with a GT Falcon 302 Windsor under the front! Still running on the original 13" wheels and completely street legal! Conversions can be scary :D

I tried but beating my head against a brick wall would have been more fun and had more effect, so I sent him your way and gave up all hope on the poor guy. It's a genuine GTR he's rebuilding. He's got the Holden bug beyond recovery! ;)

In answer to your question, if I don't go to the GMC i'll be dead. It's in my home town so it's a safe bet i'll be there. :D

Unless its been moved to Bendigo I somehow don't think I can make it, but to all who go enjoy and I hope to see you celebrating in front of the podium.

Is it the round after Hidden Valley?

Donut King I wish that S/C XR8 was my car but unless my XF has magically turned into a new model i'll have to wait.
There is a S/C Herrod XR8 here in Bendigo (Laminge knows him). There was a picture posted on BON a fair while ago with Laminges car, it was a wedding car in the photo.
Man does that car sound awesome. :mad3:

Haha Yep is that the same guy who sometimes goes to the Melbccr.com events?

I didnt realise it but on one of the cruises he lined up against me at a set of traffic lights - on the other side of me was some VL, I gunned it at the lights and I was quite surprised when the toyota had passed me like a rocket!! :eek: :eek: :WH: :WH:

But It was all in good fun - I honked the horn and gave him the thumbs up :thumbup:

Damn sleepers! :D

There are two Corolla's that go along to the MCCR cruises.

One has the Windsor and has done a 12.95 down the 1/4

The other has a 13B in it.

I lined up the rotary one on Fri night in the SS and he had heaps of wheelspin luckily so I beat him :D

Have you been to many of the cruises? Which is your machine?

Yeah I tend to go to the Open cruises rather than Hipo ones cos I have a relatively stockish EB Fairmont, no way i can keep up withe turbo & V8 guys unless its a very bendy cruise where I *may* have chance. ;)
