Perth 116 meeting April 2016
« on: 10 February 2016, 06:11 AM »
now honest to goodness, i started organising this before Carls post came up! But us West Australians rule the 116 get together here in Australia.
So Sunday April 10, 2016 is the next date. 8 cars already pencilled in without even including the additional cars amongst those in this group.  a few more guys are pending, whilst a few have cars off the road.
If you are in WA and have a 116, please help us get to 20 cars and put together the biggest southern hemisphere gathering of 116s in some time.  Come to think of it, if you are in south africa, you arent that far away so you should also join us!
The typical plan is a morning meet, bit of a drive in the metro area, then lunch somewhere.  aim for a half day event.
please PM me for more details.
best regards

2012 wow that was a long time ago

Everyone is invited!  8) these meets are cool and great fun, been hanging out for the leap year W116 event for ages, recently its been TJ450 and Goldacre having to carry the can to attend shows with our cars in WA (i give W126 some slack as they borrow a heap of parts off the W116 so a clone in good disguise)  ;D

10 April in the calendar, AC regassed, radio antenna replaced (so no more half erect 'soft ons')  ::) wheel alignment sorted (toe in was 10mm out! ouch, cost me a new set of front tires) hydro hose from self leveling tank replaced, i have it covered! ok, here we go  ;D

Luke 'What a heap of junk'!
G 'Yeah, a really need to polish the chrome'.
Leia 'You really are brave' (sardonically)
Luke 'Are you sure you can outrun these BMWs'?
G 'This car did the Busselton run in 13.5 liters per 100klm with the AC on at 110kph, she will get you there, on one tank'. (Miles Per Gallon (US) 17.423302)
Luke 'Cool.... hey Ben, whats wrong'!?
Ben 'I have just felt another great disturbance in the ozone layer'.
G 'Hey old man, its HyChill 30 now so relax, and i don't need a catalytic converter by my side, just a straight system for me'.

 ;D

12/1979 450 SEL 136K on clock (museum piece)
12/1986 Lotus Esprit Turbo 87K on clock 'Darling, look what Q has brought for us, isn't it nice' :)
