Thats too bad Tim  :(

I hope you can Mike, you still haven't seen my car in the flesh :)

I spoke to Greg at the club meeting tonight and he's keen as long as its on the Sunday (12th) because of some other club event on the saturday.

The idea of the day is that it will be an informal cruise, and very little organization will go into it. Just a chance for some Z owners to meet up, go for a drive to the coast, have some lunch and either chat, swim or throw a footy around for the afternoon before we head home at an unspecified time. No deadlines or itinerary and all that hassle. I'll get Greg to send out an email to the Qld Z car club and because we are keeping it informal we can do the run with as little as 3 to as many as 15 cars.

Orange-Z, was that you I was sitting next to at the meeting tonight by any chance?

Steve

Steve;

I was at the meeting on Thurs night so you may have been sitting beside me.

Put me down as a tentative for the drive on Sun 12 Oct.  I want to get my petrol leak fixed first before I waste more on the ground.

Hey guys,

Info is up in the October events section, but i'll post it here as well:

Oct 12 Weekend Club Run to Mudjimba

One of our members is coordinating an informal club run up to Mudjimba beach on the Sunshine Coast. The run is a club run so anybody with club registration can go along. The details are still being finalised but members will meet at the Carseldine Caltex early Sunday morning before heading up to Mudjimba for a swim and maybe a casual lunch. Once the details are finalised another Email will be sent advising of the meeting time, route to be taken, exact destination etc.

So far Greg and I are the only confirmed, please post here, PM or email me on stevo_gj***hotmail.com (insert the @ instead of the ***)

Should be a good bit of fun, who's gonna bring a footy?  ;D

Tentative yes from me.  Where the hell is the Carseldine Caltex? 
What sort of drive is it going to be, just a cruise up the highway, or twisties up through montville/maleny and back down?

Just a cruise up the highway at this stage, we can deviate that course for the way back depending upon how we feel but at this stage we are keeping it simple.

Carseldine Caltex is on Gympie road at Carseldine, (north brisbane) so if you can find Gympie road its easy to get to.

Greg, Steve, Sushi, Sushi's mate, Alan, possibly Mike and possibly Lynton. so far

Greg and I have decided on an 8:30 start at the Carseldine Caltex, so we can make sure everyone is there, gassed up and have a few minutes to discuss our route beforehand.

Also, Greg pointed out that a highway drive might be a little plain, so if anyone knows of any good windy roads in this area please let us know. Has anyone taken the landsborough exit to drive through Edlo up to Woombye and across to Maroochy? Greg said it has potential but he's never done the drive himself.

Anyway, thats the purpose of getting to the servo at 8:30, to make final decisions on the route.

Comments / ideas are welcome

Steve

friend from the coast says coolum yandina road would be sweet

"drive to nambour, get on the bruce and take the yandina exit and your on it. its sweet, winding rural road"

for the way home from mudjimba go along david low way and onto bli bli road. its the easiest way to get back to the highway and its a pretty nice drive, only 80kph but not a bad road. its not like its a 30min windy road or anything but its the way i always head back from there anyways

Can't go driving this weekend, Bathurst is on!  It's tradition, I'd probably still be watching if it descended to a Hyundai / Daewoo buzzbox battle.  Enjoy the cruise.

Wow great pics!  I love the BRE colour scheme.  I thought surly_z had taken a roadtrip up to brisbane for a second there, but the wheels are different.  ;D    The wheels on the ex-flamingo car look like they've been nicked from an old lambo!  8)  All the cars look fantastic and it looks like you guys had a great time!

Thanks,

Wanna buy em?  ;D

I'm going to be buying a newer set of wheels soon, so I've got to get rid of these puppies. They are Cheviots but that's about all I know  ???

Cheers for the comments everyone,

Steve
