can you PM me your phone no. in case I turn up and can't see where all the zeds went to?

Take plenty of pictures though, and I'm super keen to see Dorifticon's red 260Z, as well as Scott's new paint job! We should maybe meet for a small cruise on a month or so?

Shame you are going to miss out, but it will be on next year etc, so no big rush and i'm all for going for another cruise. I "detailed" the car today, I am a spastic and dont understand paint though, so i have decided to leave the sanding and cutting/polishing etc to someone that gets it and has patients.

That reminds me, better give the old girl a wash/wax/vaccuum!

Just want to confirm who is going, so far it's:
Chris240 (50% chance)
Chris do you know if you can make it? Does anyone else want to come? It's a really fantastic day with many many great cars. It'd be an awesome day to fly the Z flag high.

We managed to get 4 zeds eventually..Miika, Scott and Andrew (great to have you onboard !)
I managed to turn up with mine around Midday.
One thing that still amazes me, is that with soooo many cars, the zeds draw all types of people like bees to honey....makes me feel good,especially when my 4 year old proudly blabs to interested onlookers, "this is my daddys car" ...kids are icebreakers..
anyway because of my vocal 4 yearold, I met a nice dude Ian from canberra who has a burnt orange 240 as a daily driver....hes been loitering around this website, but never posted...well Ian , heres your chance. Turns out his dad & brother-in-law also have 240's in canberra, unbelievable.
As my memory car on my camera was full, Im hoping Miika & Scott took some pics to post-up.

Also, interesting that we only seem to have 2 seater s30's in canberra, given they are apparently the rarer of the body types.
I was looking forward to seeing the r35, but only managed to catch a glimpse as it drove past (with the silver r34 in tow) on my way back after lunch!
Overall, however, it was a really good show, far exceeded all my expectations.

What a show! Massive turn out, so much bigger than I had expected.
Good turn out guys, thanks for coming along for a short time Chris. I didn't take any pics this year and to be honest it didn't even cross my mind which is kinda odd.
There is talk next year of this being held at Epic, so I dunno if this will cause entry fees and therefore a small crowd and display, I certainly hope not.
As for the R35, i'll post up next Bob will have it at an event (Through SAU) so ya can check it out. That was his R34 too. Only a couple from his impressive garage collection.
