    Up at 4.30am (to beat rush hour) wrong.Still bumper to bumper . Heading across on the ferry to the Nz pre 49 event in Christchurch ,only a 7 hr drive but the ferry adds 4 1/2 hrs to that. A rainy dark fall drive. Awesome road trip so far . A few hours ahead of us yet. Sure bets staying at home for Easter.

    Paul you may be wrong
    Lord Lamington was Qld Governor 1896-1901,they often had afternoon teas
    His wife Lady Lamington arranged for their French Pastry chef to make an quick and easy cake
    for her guests, sponge cake/chocolate coated/coconut all over
    the lamington is Aussie

    Not correct, Aussie invented the Rocky Road dessert even though New Zealand invented the Pavlova [admit it!]

  22. I remember when Keith Urban was a kid playing in pubs around town. Of course that was after he moved here as a two year old.:rolleyes:

Huh it came in bucketfuls. Of course a vintage Mallory two part cap and cloth leads and felt under the 36 air cleaners soaked it all up. Thanks to motel hair dryers we were mobile in half an hour. A few very interesting cars here . Entry was restricted due to size of the venue but quality is definitely up . Weather today was a bit gloomy and turned to strong wind and rain, fun rides home trying to stay on the road . Today we took in a phenomenal eclectic private collection of cars bikes and planes . Fantastic was the only word to describe it. Extremely well set up .

    The pristine eclectic collection. Scan around and see what you can find. This only part of the collection.
