Ahhh the good ol days...

I remember Goran's old car as posted earlier

Was offered to buy it in swap of my N/A Calais plus some cash.... was tempted... even went for a test drive in it!!! lol... that thing did a MAD skid. I Remember the owner at the time (Tim ???) said it ran on premium, but if you want to up the boost to 26psi, then add 50% tolulene!! hahaha... 2 spd powerglide and all. Had an awsesome instrument cluster with some turbo's bushed on it...

I remember the good ol days of the "exchaser" cruises... I think the last one I attended I still had the N/A Calais and had to split early from Mount Mee....

Plenty of people still hanging round the boards, but I think they become more "readers" than "posters".

I've always wondered what happened to DVS88... had a particularly bad smash in his VL and was in a coma for ages. Anyone got updates what happened with that all??

Mt Mee would have been the best cruise to date Mark... there were cars goin nuts up there, one bloke who came in a vn ss grp a.. goin ***in mental.. and then osky in his old white calais was rippin into it too haha.. i've still got the videos.. some mad ****..

hahahaha and osky also stalled it on the 1st attempt at a skid hahahaha

I'm still around and check back once a week or two, i've had a vl off the road for about 2 years, was sick of driving the ****ter n/a's around so was just driving the vz above non stop, then after losing my licence for 9 months i've just decided to take a break
licence back in 2 weeks and hopefully a vlt to cruise in!

I think the first cruise i went on was from indro maccas in the daytime to mt mee maybe??, oh no ones mentioned the yellow vl think it had an aero kit and owned by ian from sunny coast may have had the plates 57RUT that was on that cruise with a white 33 51NNR, jay woulda had the white vl and ollie musta been passanger!

As for Pete in DVS86 i was the one who actually came across the accident and went to the hospital, i do remember a few updates on his state, last i recall was (both legs broken) that while they had started to heal they weren't growing back right and had to break them both in physio and reset them again, i tried to find out more but never really did, this was in 2003 too i think. And yes he was american and about 6'4, tall bloke with an accent and an absolute top bloke!

Also no ones mentioned the yellow walky kitted vl that got around roma street a few years back!

I have strange memories coming back of the timmy doll, and drunk simon, and did you stay in a hotel i was in ollie and smash a glass table???????????
Also remember 06CAL's mate showin up in the fastback mustang!

Basically i've been a member here since maybe 2000??? after a while it's inevitable people lose interest, i think for a large majority of people your refering to steve we were on here non stop in our younger years but now with careers and lives the computer just seems much less important.
Thanks again for takin my misses to her formal too steve

yeah i remember ian and his yellow vl , good bloke. as for the other yellow one , that was greame's (turbowerx) funny times with the motorbike gang at roma street hahaha


thanks chrisso - im not over the moon with the article , but its still nice to get recognition for many years and dollars spent on the ****box.

my blue car ran 11.8 on 15psi with a 5 speed and 11.8 also with and auto before selling it to buy a house.

Then I got a lot of stuff back when the buyer stripped it further. I beleive the cooler is on ONC16 some bits are on my current car. Some bits on andys car and various other bits elsewhere. It was a fun street car but my future was in drag only stuff which what Im doing now.

the shell is in SA somewhere.

yeh there was the pizza shop incident where the bloke was glassed in the shop and another bloke from my town in another incident was stabbed by a bunch of asian guys cause he wouldnt hand over his bottle of alcohol, he didnt even realise at first, they mobbed him and when they ran off he noticed he was bleeding, made the news etc, i seen quite a few fights too.
