Good cruise. Had near 20 cars at the start of the day! Too many cars for Wentworth Falls and Katoomba car parks to handle! The weather was awesome (nice cold mountain air) - thank god it didn't rain like the Anzac Day cruise.

Myself and my brother (JET-88C) had a little bit of fun on the way home

I took a couple of photos which can be seen here:

Thanks to the huge turnout, everyone played a part in making this day great and enjoyable.
This is by far the biggest cruise we've had so far car-wise... twenty I counted from Homebush to Katoomba.
If it wasn't for some bad luck and other commitments there probably would have been an extra two nice VLs as well, but thats life aye.

Big thanks to the boys from distant North and South for travelling that extra mile to join the cruise.

ISL33P and OMY3OL, a bit less sideways next time please! :P

Johnny (OMY3OL), thanks for the shauffeur service

Can't wait for the next cruise...
Next November cruise will be to Palm Beach, thru the Kuringai Chase Natio Park, and a lot of cars will be much mightier then, let me tell you.
In the meantime, do not rule out any other little events like drag meets or car shows etc.
I will all let you know with my famous banner when it'll be on.

Just had a look at the pics, some nice cars there. Never seen such a long line of VLs on the road!

Good to see some people took their G/Fs along ( VLKING photo).

Did you stop and have a BBQ or similar? Would make it a more social day for the girls too.

I have posted some of my pics. Not as many as I would have wanted, but hey, someone has to drive!

http://www.pbase.com/johngorman/vl_cruise_3

I saw heaps of other cameras on the day - hopefully everyone can post them up. Who was the person hanging out of the car taking the pics? I'd love to see those driving shots.

VLKING you need ignition leads, spark plugs and a wastegate actuater hose, you'll probably want a boost controller as well. Get the mechanic to check all the connections and sensors as well, any performance workshop could do this, just tell them your on a budget.

If you want to run big boost I would be putting the car on a dyno as well!

i am extremely suprised at the manner in which everyone behaved themselves, i thought there was going to be a bit of action, but to no evail. i suppose if there wasnt so much traffic.

VLKING, apart form new leads, plugs etc, you badly need to flush your whole coolant system, do a pressure test and maybe even need a new radiator. In the mean time, empty the water and fill it up with coolant. try to do as much yourself as possible, and dont bodge it up. workshops cost a fortune no matter what budget you are on. let me know by pm how much they want to charge and i might be able to help you out.

the guy hanging out of the car taking pics was boostedcal, there is a link to most of the pics in the photos thread, i have more but i ran out of webspace Boostedcal had a video camera too , he will probably upload some clips or maybe send out vids i dunno, he got about an hours footage.

if anyone wants all the pics i can burn a cd and send it to you.

cheers
Scott
