To all who may be interested we are looking to meet up at the Foreshore in Newcastle on Sunday. Say 12 pm and we will take it from there. Clean up the beasts and get them out.

Lets show the ford flag...

Looks like a trip to Newcastle on Sunday. Foreshore as in, inside the harbour? or along the beach beneath the fort?

Sydney guys should use the Putty Road to test the cars out properly on the way up. Damn fine driver's road IMO. Many runs in the HSVs over the years (he, he, he) - one in particular where we had three HSVs doorhandle to doorhandle around a sweeper hairpin :nuts: :eek:

All takers are welcome...as long as its a Ford.

Come one come all!!!!

I might be sporting a black eye... The wife just found out I have put new Alloys and Tyres on the car.... LOL...

Bugger it took at least a week until she noticed I had put a body kit on.......

Wulos, I am looking forward to meeting up with you.

Yeah, great bit of road ain't it Pete? :D

I've always taken the inland route to Brissy, and Putty Rd is always the first stretch, even if it adds a little time to the trip overall.

I've suggested a Putty Rd, BBQ @ Singleton, then home via Newy then Old Pacific Hwy trip for the XR club.

Ahh, ok - I checked the diary/history on the website and didn't see any mention of Putty Rd, though Terrigal got a few mentions so I wasn't sure the club had done such a run.

Putty Road. What a fine piece of road. Picture this:
'HSV club, early sundy morning. Le Mans style start with first to Singleton wins. My VP Clubbie with brakes so hot and tyres working so hard that at Singleton we pull over and wait for the masses to see my white car is black down the sides and the tyre tread blocks have melted and balled up on the edges. Pete wins after that pass on the outside of two other cars on the hairpin :crazy: ! Those were the days :eek: :nuts:
