No worries Ian, I saw the road signs last night coming back from the 'Bullets For My Valentine' concert and panicked a bit myself. I checked when I got home, so that's how I knew it was the 6th.

 

John, do we leave Loftus at 8:00am or is that the meeting time for a later exit? I have to do a few things beforehand but can be there at 7:30-ish if that's what's intended.

Peter, we'll try and leave as close to 8am as possible, I'm planning on arriving earlier than 8am.

ScottyD, If the report stay the same we'll probably go ahead as the cruise is not long.

Hi All

If the weather is anything like today we won't have an issue, forecast has eased up to showers at times during late afternoon and evening which gives everyone plenty of time to head home in case the weather turns.

Fingers crossed and see you all tomorrow.

Thanks to all who attended, was great to meet everyone and have a casual chat.

Look forward to seeing some more photos and hopefully we can do it again in the new year.

It was great to catch up albeit briefly and sans zed at the Scarborough pub today. 

As was mentioned during that catch up, I just bought a new screen for the zed (due to the crappy roll over and crush on the a pillar) and bought from these guys http://www.autoglass...971-1978-frontĀ 

Ex stock, ordered online Thursday, picked up Friday at their ops at Riverwood. The guy I dealt with in Brisbane (he called me within 30 minutes of placing the order) and advised pick up etc. Very easy purchase, pick up and they also do some other items, side/door glass as noted here 

http://www.autoglass...8-240z-260z-s3/

All seemed pretty easy.

Thanks John for organising this, car felt really good on the drive today. Great to catch up with everyone and welcome to some new faces and Zeds. ;D

 

Shaun, did I see you with a go pro? if you could, please upload some video footage.

Nice pic Peter.

In regards to windscreens http://www.motorspor...dscreens.com.au
do heated front screens. There was a thread on Ozdat raising interest for a run of 1600 heated front screens for $685
http://ozdat.com/for...t=Heated screen
I understand they needed a minimum number of orders before they did the run but not sure what that magic number was or if Z screens are in stock???
For a z without A/C it's a good option for defogging the screen.

Nice to see some old and meet some new Z'rs today, shame I was late and missed others.
Was a nice day for a drive though.

Cheers
Mick

Thanks John for organising the long awaited drive day, it was great to see some zeds out!!

 

Mike, I will get the footage together and upload a small video when I get a chance this week (apologies in advance for the amateur footage - it was the first time I have used the go pro).

 

Here are a few more photos from the initial meet at Loftus.

Thanks for organising John, and everyone who came along. Getting out in the Zed is a rare experience but great when it happens. Looking forward to the next one.

 

Cheers

Ben

Really enjoyable drive even if it meant leaving home at the crack of dawn and breakfast at 5.30! Very nice group of cars and drivers, one benefit of being in the lead was watching the 240/260 tail flowing through the bends of the Royal National Park even at the speed limit and under. The venue of the Scarborough Hotel was excellent with a passing parade of other classics on a Sunday drive and a plethora of open exhaust bikes (maybe I'm showing my age there!) excellent lunch with Mike and Ian, thoroughly enjoyed everyone's company. I'll definitely be doing more of these and might even be able to bring a 260 for a run, shoulder permitting. I will keep everyone informed of future Z car club Sydney runs. Thanks John for organising and the great photography contributed by all. Regards Craig
