Any Brisbanites want to meet up?
Posted 15 August 2008 - 08:08 AM
The club meetings are on the last thursday of every month, but they tend to have a big agenda and there is hardly any time to have a chat. I'm wondering if any of you want to meet up on a mon, tues or weds night in the next few of weeks? It would be good to put some names to faces and have a chance to inspect some of the other Zs in Brisbane.
I was thinking something informal and somewhere we can park, eat and sit around for a while. Maybe have a beer (open license as of last week ) Any ideas?

If there is a get together, I would love to come but could not be sure to get there.
Keep them posted and I would see if I could get there

Neuby next time you come to Brissie you should definetly let me know and we can meet and show of our cars
Also, there is a headlight conversion day coming up soon, where one of the auto electricians in the club will do a step by step instructions and oversee us installing Xenon headlights into our cars. This means we do the work ourselves, get the guidance of a qualified electrician and only pay for the parts costs. Thought I would plug it here because who wouldn't want brighter headlights really!

Alot of the events that greg has been emailing through look great aswell but jsut trying to fit them in is trouble for me. i will have to block out my calendar for the headlight workshop though. My yellow beast already has the headlight conversion but my daily driver and my project both need it done.
i think the other problem for me is that most of the members in the club are into the motorsport side of things which I don't really fit into. I don't know alot about the 'preformance' side of things and probably find it harder to make conversation. I wouldn't mind trying a few of the events but i can barely afford to keep my cars on the road without the cost of track days etc.
but anyways if anyone wants to go for random drive on weekends pm me and i will see if im available. maybe we could have a list of people we can pm when we have last minute decisions of 'hey im bored, lets go for a drive...' even if it is just to the sunny coast or something

Sushi if Greg and I do something, say a sunday drive, would you be keen to tag along? Maybe Neuby and oldmates260z might be interested in coming too? A couple months ago Greg and I cruised up north to Mt Mee and had a great time. I'm sure we could repeat something like that.
From December i'm off to the mines, 12 hours north of Brisbane near a town called Tieri. I would love to have another day cruise in the Z before then but struggle to find a day to do it in. I still haven't tested out my new 5spd gearbox against Greg's 240z
Anyway, if Greg and I plan anything I'll let you guys know.

Greg and I went on Sunday, there was a guy in a sr311 roadster as well. Check out www.hsccq.asn.au for more details. There is another on 21/9 and again on 19/10. Do a search on youtube for motorkhana and/or hsccq and you'll dig up a bunch of vids.

Hey Mike, good to see you on the forums
I take it you got those helicoils you were looking for?

If you get a day run organised I'll try and make it, just depends on family commitments.
Posted 11 September 2008 - 11:28 PM
I'll keep you updated about a possible day run.

I reckon hitting the beaches would be a great idea. Got any day in mind?
How is either day of the 11th/12th weekend of October for you guys?

Edit: Also club meeting is on tonight, so if you can get to Shannons near Albion around 7pm then we can meet up then.
"The meeting will start at the Shannons office at 7pm. 3-11, Ross Street, Newstead"
Orange-Z even if you can't bring your Z along, you should try and make it tonight because the guys are very friendly and have a vast wealth of knowledge.
Might see some of you there!

For anyone who is interested in a bit of easy low impact competition there is a "come and try" motorkhana planned for the 19th October at Wilowbank. Search youtube for "HSCCQ motorkhana" to see what it's about. Check out www.hsccq.asn.au for details or PM me.
