Sounds like picking which tie to wear. Hope to see you there. I don't think I'll get there before 12:30.

We had a small turn out at the Twin Rivers Car show today.
Aaron and I flew the flag, great to see that mint wee 1200 out there representing Aaron, it is a credit to you. Sorry I missed you on the cruise, I'm not sure where you disappeared to. I was ushered off with Mark, the Toy Collector in his Mint '71 240Z, was quite cool to cruise with another Zed :P
Met another Guy Lee with a very original and immaculate 280zx, Hopefully we will see him around events in the future. I think Datsuns probably had a slight edge on the other Japanese manufacturers, but only just, it would be great to get a bigger turn out next year.

What a great array of cars, from Modern Mustangs, Chevs and Porsches to Galant GTOs, Celicas, Accords and RXs to GTHOs and Chargers, you name it, it was there, and plenty of oil leakers (English) as well if that is your thing. Best in show went to an early 1900s International, scary looking thing, Best Jap went to an immaculate Colt GTO, Aaron probably missed out because he had fitted something other than factory cookie cutter wheels, and had altered his paint work, not snobby enough, Close runner up is the 2000 I posted in the Datsuns in the wild thread, may post here off my phone, Non Factory wheels again, but what a beautiful car :P
Best Aussie, A lovely GTHO, Best Yank was a Dodge Charger, Best English was a Mk2 Jag, on Wires, and best Euro was a 131 Abarth.
Weather probably kept a few in the shed, but still heaps of cars there and well worth the look, and the rain never came, so all good.
Catch you all there next year.
