Melbourne and Vic meet...
« on: 29 July 2011, 07:12 AM »
Does any one in Melbourne or Victoria (or further afield) feel like a winter meet?

Nothing special, just meet up in park somewhere for some none-http based interaction.

Think we tried this once before, of the three men and the dog who said they turn up only the dog made it.

When I had a finnie I found out that the small circle of afficianados diminished until there were almost none. Fast forward.  Looking for a replacement, I skipped the NG and went straight to a W116. Why? - No rear swing arms to get out of alignment, a/c, ps etc on almost all examples, same space as a finnie, good performance, handling, ride, steering, brakes, and lots of protection if things get out of hand. So here I am, re-living the finnie experience, pretending to ignore the sideway glances, smiling when I drive my W116, and like most W116 owners, still looking for a better one.

I live in Melbourne, and although I don't like dogs (I try to run over them, and cats, too), I am curious to meet someone who thinks Joyce Barnaby is hot. I'd be interested to learn more about 6.9s, too.  There is a nice park called Hayes' Paddock with lots of parking space off Kilby Road. When I get over this lurgie that gives me time to write stuff like this.

Your place or the suggested park is fine by me, or anywhere else for that matter.

What day and time suits?

I'll kick off with Sunday 14 August 11 AM.

powerglide, koan, carl888 and johnj makes 4.

carl's garage sounds good because it has a roof.

The numbers are building, could be a record.

Sun 14 Aug @ 11:00am is good for me, but I need to know where to come. Richmond is 10 mins for me. I can bring incomplete 350SE or complete 280SE leaking fluids all over the place. U can call me on 0418 510 964.
