How did the fake steel bar come up Brett? Got a pic?? :)

Only 3 days until the show, can't wait! Weather should hopefully hold up for us (showers are expected late arvo / early evening).

And don't forgot - The Manhattan Hotel have an awesome bistro area, TAB's, and a lager bar with beer garden.... just in case anyone gets bored looking at cool cars!


Lol, imagine how bad that would actually look... :lol:

Good luck with the day guys, I can't make it along but it should be an awesome turnout as a lot of guys I know are coming along. :D

Shame you can't make it Brett, but I'll be sure to post plenty of pics.

On that note: I'd just like to give a quick plug to one of our sponsors - Loaded Dice Photography. He's a professional photographer who will also be attending the day shooting the event... his work is fantastic... check it out here:

One of the prizes on the day is a free pro-shoot with him. Someone will be very happy winning that one!

Besides Sime (Impala), Dave (Escort), Deb (EH) & myself with the Torry (who will all be there early with our cars), there's a few more I know of Mick, but they're all coming at different times... Tony (Monaro), DC (Monaro), Jason (EH), and Keith (Chev). Can't remember who else.

I think it's just a case of rock up and park wherever you like.

Can't wait for tomorrow.... hope to see a few more people down there :)

Massive day today, I'm stuffed!

We couldn't have asked for more - perfect weather, great cars, and great people. Thanks to everyone who came along.

For our first event, it far exceeded our expectations, with entrant numbers through the gates going well past 300, plus a big crowd throughout the day too. As expected, it turned into a constantly rotating car show, with people coming and going from 7:30am right up beyond 3pm... it seemed to peak around lunchtime, with numbers falling off pretty quickly after that. I had a bloody ball :)

We achieved our primary objective of gathering a large variety of cars, and the feedback we're receiving on this alone is fantastic! Can't wait to do it all again next year - bigger and better. We also learnt a few things today which we'll work on improving for next time. If anyone has any other feedback (positive or negative), we're all ears...

I don't have a final figure just yet (stay tuned), but some big funds were raised for the CFA which is excellent. Every cent raised today went straight to those guys, and they did a great job manning the food and drinks all day.

I'm absolutely buggered... pics will follow at some stage soon.

LXCHEV.
