116 forum comradery - another interstate meeting
« on: 02 December 2009, 04:28 PM »
Hi all,
just gotta say again how cool it is that the enjoyment of our 116s brings people together from all over the joint! last night, TJ and  i met Flutes who was visiting WA from Sydney.
we had a good chat about his 450 and his enthusiasm was quite evident.  i must ad though (without any insult meant), that he could be the true Patrick Batement!! anyone intending to meet up with Flutes may do better to tidy up prior than TJ and I did.  we appeared like we were lining up for the soup kicthen in comparison to our guest who looked like he was preparing to enter the boardroom!
ha ha
best regards
nathan

Ha!

Nathan - I've gone through various nicknames throughout  the years, and yes, American Psycho has been one that crops up occasionally.  In some circles, I'm known as "Neat Matt".

It was great to meet you guys and see Goldie and the other 6.9s.  Your dedication to storing partially complete cars sets an example for us all.

Cheers,
Matt.

i can imagine TJ as usual wore his best outfit, the stained black T shirt, ripped track suit pants and worn out steel capped boots.  8)

This outfit is suitable for weddings, shoveling manure in the back yard and working on mercedes - its 100% ready for any situation  8)

you forgot my safety footware, a pair of double pluggers.

Perfect for grinding up car bodies with a disk grinder, or welding up w126's parked in the front garden ;)
