I have holidays at the end of this week (for three weeks).  It's time....  Post or PM your unsuitable dates and we'll catch up while Nathan's on the right side of the country!   ;) ;D

Gosh, chaps, it's almost the second (or is it the third?) anniversary of the famous meeting @ Carl's rendezvous in Richmond.  I have long finished the resto on von Braun, which car (my 350SE) appears in a TV ad (I think it was for the NAB).  You see its beautiful arse end (look for the 350SE badge) in the open garage door of a Mac mansion where they filmed the ad.

And it's on the market as we have a new(er) C classe that doesn't need a resto.

Let's meet up, and I will reveal all!  Being now a man of leisure, any time any day will suit me, but Sunday morning worked well last time.

PG.

Oh wow, I just posted that ad here the other day! That was your car?! That's amazing! I wondered if the car had been cast in the role and I wondered even if maybe the owner might have visited these forums. ;D

What are we doing this Sunday (9th June)??  I'm free in the morning and I just found out this show is on if anyone's interested: http://www.onlymelbourne.com.au/melbourne_details.php?id=56494  Or we could just have coffees etc in Niddrie or Essendon Fields, followed by a visit to Carl's man shed if he's available.

Sounds like Friday might be better at Carl's shed from lunchtime onwards.  I'm still free on Sunday morning & will probably end up at the expo at the showgrounds

Sorry, guys, I missed it yesterday - got caught up in family stuff.

I think we need to set a date and a venue around three to five weeks out, and then see who can come.  Carl's shed was great, but it may be someone else's turn. Espresso on a chill winter's morn can be good.  Last time 6.9s dominated, but Carl's 280SE was the jaw dropper - what an amazing find!

Yes,it was von Braun that featured in the NAB ad on telly, which I haven't seen myself because my little boss of just 4 summers hogs the TV with ABC2.  Sometimes she lets me see Classic Restos on Channel 31 because she likes old cars for their shiny chrome and wild colours.  And she likes footy (Swans, of course) and golf also.

Altho' I posted a pic in gallery, no-one has actually see the yellow 280SE 'in the flesh' - miight bring it as it could ber a runner up to Carl's car in terms of its originality and condition.

Any futher thoughts?  If so, send me an email as well if you can.

PG.

Saturday 22 June looks OK 4 me at this stage - that's a week away.  Carl, I have 2 say that you're still looking like a leader (could do with someone like U in Canberra).  Do U want von Braun (resto finished), or the Taxi (no-one's seen it yet)? - can you believe that someone tried to hail me for a taxi on one occasion? LOL!

You have my mobile # from last meeting.
