Ok fellow Canberra muppets, its been 7.5 years since our last meet & drive.. I think a catch-up & drive is in order..Suggest a saturday late May ??
I went for a drive with the family to Wee Jasper which is around 70klms from Canberra over the long weekend, great drive, nice windey roads, tiny pub & grill.....just a thought.
Who's up for it  :P

I doubt I will either, exhaust manifold is off being welded and just discovered i need new braided lines for the rear.  I'm in the middle of changing job, so its making things a bit difficult to organize till I get a new roster too.  So rather than say I might make it and then not, ill just say no, so maybe later.  If it still goes ahead, i'd be happy to hitch a ride with someone for the trip if i'm not working.

roah!!!
Im in, pending nothing else breaks on the R30...
This month alone, 2 leaking injectors, arcing spark leads, leaking auto, flatspotted tyres, rear wheel bearings, rear R180 diff mount, big exhaust leak under the auto (fumes in cabin)... It will nearly be cheaper to buy a whole other car!

Good opportunity to re-fit the factory exhaust extraction fan on the manifold... har har

Should be good to go then, it'll make a nice shakedown cruise for Z and it's been a million billion years since we last caught up.  :)

Agreed, its been ages since the last blast in the Zed....count me in!

Chris's 240 is now purring like a kitten after I helped him with a tune up, so there is no excuses from him.  Pick a day and I'll pencil it in.  B)
