here's the "minor bumper damage"
I was braking into the roundabout at the start of Main Road, the other dude changed lanes in front of me. I was braking and ran out of space. I'm not laying blame at all. I dunno who's fault. We'll sort it out.
I was looking forward to this cruise too. what a **** of a day.

WANTED
little angled strip for on top of the front bumper, group A bumper, left hand head lights and any other bits that are broken. And some metallic green paint too.
And the angled bit above the rear bumper of the other dude's car.


[edit]All fixed. It looks better than before. No stone chips. $1000 insurance excess later. [/edit]





here's me and the poor bugger i bumped (in the red commondore).

spewin i didn't make it, sounds like it was a good turnout. Typical the day i can't make it we have a big turnout, hopefully the next one we have will be a little later so that we can have a few more who work turn up! Spewing about the prang there. Be good if a few of you guys who came out come on the cruise with me and my mates, at the moment we are looking at atleast 20 cars, should be good!

BerlinaJim, I took about 50 pics but I don't have that much webspace or bandwidth to upload them all.

yeh, the one with the busted old stock commo rims and a busted left hand mirror, haha. The whole time i was saying to my mate, i've seen that car before, i've seen that car before.

Did you go on the cruise with about 10-15 other commos? I saw them going up Glen Osmand at about 10-1030ish, one day my car will be presentable enough to go on those cruises, being 16 1/2 (nearly 17) with a part time job and a v8 it's a bit hard to save cash, lol.
