I am coming to live with you all in 5 months, im going to be studying at the University of Tasmania - Launceston campus, bringing my VL wagon down for some action, i went down there last week to check out the uni and the town (im from VIC) and let me just say that the joint aint to bad, and you tassie people are just like us, dunno why they call you two headed or inbred...i reckon you are cool, and you will make good car buddies, i seen a car down there with a "hobart cruise club" sticker on it, i wanna join something like that when im down there, any sick VL's live in Launceston? or will i be the only one?

You don't wanna join the "hobart cruise club" :) full of bogans and stuff, plus they are mainly based in hobart. There is the Tassie Cruise Club which was started out of Launceston but have cruises statewide. Give PSI086 on here a PM, he is the founder of the cruise club and he is in launceston. He and his bro have VLT's like duz said.

Cheers,

Chris

red with black walky wheels and a walky front bar, not sure on other body mods...
i don't know how it goes, but by the sounds of the free flowing zorst and what looks like a supra cooler up front (guessing) my guess it would go well, perhaps 13's, was in an old street commodores wasn't it???
you live somewhere in the trevallyn region too i think, when i was working on a mates vlt, i'd see you drive up there occasionally...
i hope you don't know mine, i should sit it away and get it painted, but after all the hard work on the motor, i'm just keen to drive it. don't care what it looks like.

PSI086
30-08-04, 22:47
You better look out Chris, I think we have a spy on our hands. Its a AVO cooler like mine too Ed, just one of the older ones when they were black.

VLT-666
01-09-04, 19:25

VLT_RB30
27-09-04, 08:36
Darwin is nice. But Tassie is awesome.

I didn’t mind Queenstown, it was unique. But they’re greening it now.

But the problem they have ATM is the waters in Tassie are being poisoned by Arial spraying by the forestry department.

Hrm - if his wagon has a wishlist up the side... then yes VLstock is here and has been SPOTTOED in Prospect yesterday... :D

VLstock
19-03-05, 12:31
hahahaha, yeh im in Launceston now, and that wishlist has a story too it. My mate who is a actual ricer (asain and has a really nice corolla) wanted them for his car, but they came in pairs off ebay and he only wnated it for his drivers side and i was the only one he knew with a ebay account and a credit card. So i agreed to get it for him, and that i would have the others..so i just put them on my car...i dont mind the look of them, its always good for a laugh and it would have been a waste of 15 bucks otherwise.

so yeh thats my story...and it aint that bad..ive seen some way worse things down here in launy. seen a few stocky like fords and holdens with those big ****en aluminium like skyline wings on the back of them. there aint anything more wrong than that

TassieNATS this weekend...pity i got no money..ohh well

VLT-666
25-03-05, 20:42
I have also seen the white wagon with the wish list now...
I tried to get your attention but failed...
I was in the phat rockin dominos car...
if you see it fangin about and the driver isnt wearing a domino's uniform chances are its me...

VLstock
25-03-05, 22:57
i remember sitting next to a domino's car a while ago at a set of lights, dont remember anyone waving at me or anything to get my attention...but i try keep my eys on the lights to see when they are gonna change..and usually people are staring at me cause of my loud music and ****....thats one thing tassie aint ot muh of..loud stereo's..whats with that? stereo's expensive down here or something? the only loud car i seen was some excel with apline stickers and **** all over it..and it wasn't even that loud..i owned the hoe driving it..think the bitch was male though...so dunno why the hell he drives a excel

VLT-666
25-03-05, 23:20
yeah there is a ****e load of riced up excels getting about... there is a fair few cars with decent stereos getting about you just dont see them much anymore...

Hahahaha..... that's because we're not all fully sick dude!

There's plenty of loud/decent stereos down here, it's just that people don't play them loudly driving around town as much as they do in say, Melbourne or Sydney - I've noticed it too. People don't seem to show them off as much unless we're all sitting in a car park or something.... Not really sure why that is.

As for the guy in the Excel, if it's a dark blue one (which I bet it is) don't be too hard on him, he's mates with a few people I know and isn't a bad bloke by all accounts. We don't hold the car against him, yes I know it's an Excel but he doesn't pretend it's better than it is.... :)

27-03-05, 19:56
Seriously VLstock.
Your making fun of people, even though you drive a VL wagon with a wish list down the side and you have your stereo up loud for everyone to hear!!!
You'll work it out.

VLstock
28-03-05, 20:32
i usually dont get offended that easily..but LUVNIT, u seem to be having a decent go at me? i have a go at one of ur mates or something? if my music is too loud for u, u can come up to my window and tell me to turn it down, as far as i care, as long as i dont break any sound laws anyone else can go *** themselves..i usually turn it down at lights and **** because i sitting next to other cars so i take that into consideration, but when im cruising ill play it as loud as i want. So what if others hear it, thats what having a loud stereo is all about.

Dont judge me until you meet me, i could either be a bigger loser then u think, or a good bloke, but there is no point us becoming enemies b4 we even meet.

LUVNIT
30-03-05, 09:44

tassie's got stuff all in the way of car clubs with decent cars. the hobart cruise club guys are mostly bogans, but there may be one or two decent cars in there somewhere. the reason no-one drives modded cars down here is becuse theres no-one here to sell the bits to them. howell autos (hobart) do the work for APS (aimed at wrx, silvia, xr6t etc) but no-one does anything for blokes (and girls) with older, cheaper cars. when (if?) the petrol price comes down you could start up a shop and make a packet.
