    no convictions ... see fun can be had w/o trouble at least not written about...

    was it odd to sit on the driver side and not drive?

    does your watch run backwards there?

    was that sandwich a "vegimite"?

    Looks like a fun trip. Any more pics of the cars in the field. Looked like a cool and relaxing place for a gathering. Any videos of the locals telling about their cars.

    Looks to me like the Aussies have a better handle on "Traditional" than we have here. I've not been to a show or cruise in recent memory where there was such an impressive collection of REAL HOT RODS. That was like a step back in time to about 1950 and the Pasadena Relibilty Run.

    Awesome tales, wish I was there.
     
  11. I'm living in the wrong town. :(

    Looks like a top weekend, sure wish I could've been there. I'll just stick to my sandy beaches and non-trad hot rods...

    Seriously epic day...

    Thanks so much to everyone involved, especially the guys like Human Fly who didn't even get to drive the route, just set up and packed up, etc. I'm guessing you were taking a bit of a gamble with this event, you completely nailed it!

    And thanks to Ryno and Blakey Boy for coming all this way and being so down to meet and thank anybody and everybody.

    Cheers!

    Dave.

    Oh and a HUGE thankyou to Corey (Flatoz) for letting me ride shotgun in his roadster. I promise to pay more attention to the map next time
     
  28. Not wrong. This is a severe case of hit with the ugly stick. Shit and you got a shot of the only grey hair in my shitty beard. I may have to pay ya back with a very un-attorney like shot from Fridee night ;):D

    Great to see the day was a success, trust this inspires others to hook in and get ready for the next one (myself included)

    Cheers,

  30. What a great thread, cool hot rods and HAMB stars! :D The quality of the Australian cars are first rate, as we've come to expect and I think we all knew the hospitality would be second to none. Thanks to all of you over there for keeping the boss in line and making him and Blake so welcome.
