I do my best, as does the rest of the team at the FDC. For the guys who are going to the October trip i am sure you all will have a ball. Discovery (felicity) has worked very hard at this and i'm sure everyone will enjoy it. Roll on October.......:D :D :D :D :D
Thanks for the kind words chucky.

I'd just like to add my praise for the Ford Discovery Centre. While being a little 'geographically challenged' and not having had the opportunity to visit personally, Felicity was able to put me in touch with the Ford Historian Adrian (dead set legend) and I have been fortunate to receive some absolutely PRICELESS Ford Probe memorabilia.

The additional information that Ford have provided has been of huge interest to not only myself - but the complete Probe 'community' that I keep in touch with. We are all extremely grateful for the efforts that FDC go to in promoting and encouraging not only the Ford brand - but the history of the company, its products AND MOST IMPORTANTLY it's enthusiasts.

I had been searching high and low for all and anything "Probe" and generally found dead ends.

Thank you again to everyone there. Especially Felicity and Adrian. Can this be passed on to either or both if they do not see it personally???

Oh - if anything ELSE turns up, don't forget me?? :D

Regards,

Dead set legendary place to go. If you go through Geelong don't miss it - our Holden boys would be jealous if they saw what Ford has done for this place!

Glad you liked it XLR8. We do too!! 2 1/2 years there so far and I still get a kick out of taking people around and seeing new displays. :D

Pity I wasn't there to meet you. If any of you do drop in, make sure you identify yourselves so we can catch up.

Felicity.

:cool:

Hey Space Boy. The Melways reference in the current edition is 401 G2! And we are open every day over the mid year school holidays.

Well well, perhaps you should have uncrossed your arms long enough to find all this out! :D :D :D

Now back to work! :eek:

:cool:

Thanks again Flick and all involved.. most appreciated! :cool:

Space Lord or Discovery

I am trying to compile a history of racing the GTHO. I have several unanswered questions that maybe he can answer for me. Can you help?
