That reminds me of when I was at Tullamarine Airport in the mid 70,s I worked for an international carrier and was often in the international arrivals hall just before the customs area.  Well there was an older chap who worked for Qantas who would greet the new arrivals just off the BA flight from London with these words  "" you, Far Que please, far Que!" as he directed the passengers to different customs counters.
He was a serious chap and I'm quite certain he wasn't having a go, just chose the wrongs words. but he did it all the time.
Those were the days,
"Catch me if you can"

Ahhhhh yes.... Far Kew for you Phil!

Not so far from where I grew up though mate,  Just head back up Burwood road, through Camberwell junction (Which didnt have traffic lights when I was a kid) and when you get to Hartwell hang a right up Summerhill road.

As for your bloke Rob?

I reckon he was just very good at keeping a straight face mate...................

OK, club rooms should be habitable by the end of the month.  Some pics of the progress.  I've been flat out working away and it's coming together.  I need to balance this non income producing clean up with a need to do some work but it's getting there.  In the meantime, we could have a meet up in Richmond one Saturday morning like the last time, I'm out of there in two weeks though!







And this is the area set aside to actually do some work, I'll install a hoist in the coming weeks.

Well, I'm stil working on it!  Lots of work in progress, still.  How about a Melbourne GTG Sunday morning, 16th. December?  Plan would be to have a morning coffee around 9:30am in Coburg at a local cafe, if you like, you can come back to the unoffical club rooms a minutes drive away where we can tell stories and look at W116s?  Anyone interested?
