  4. Good Weekend!
    Made it home at 11 pm . I think my ponti is cursed!!!!!!
    The carnage from the voyage included:
    Overheating an hour from home
    Broken bonnet catch- roped and wired for the tour de vic
    Burnt a wire out on a brand new starter
    hubcap getting stuck on top of tyres under the fender skirt
    broken ignition switch
    Tube let go at the big koala
    Tore out the rear fuel tank mount 3 hours from home.

    Anyone want to buy a slightly used 51 ponti?

  9. Man i wish I could have made it this year, thanks for the pics
     
  10. That beats my damage list, my roadster spent most of the weekend parked due to an odd noise coming from the gearbox when I turned off the freeway at Elphinstone. Gradually got worse, then wouldn't stay in top to well going home. So from Newstead to about Woodend was spent holding it in gear till I hit an almighty pothole. Pulled over to chase the hubcap of the caravan the wife was towing and relatch the bonnet on the roadster, got moving again and the gearbox has come good...... WTF?! Will be pulling the top of it tonight to see exactly what has happened. Somethings not right in there.
     
  11. yeah the joy of travelling, I hear ryan needs some minor diff work done too.
