Hi guys

Hopefully it's not to late for someone else to take my spot

 

Sorry

Many thanks to Lurch and his folks for their hospitality and for allowing us to use their property again.

 

Thanks must also go to Pete, for giving up his time to pass on a portion of his extensive knowledge. I know I learnt a lot today. These type of events are few and far between and are an incredible source of knowledge and inspiration for new guys like myself.

 

Cheers to the rat crew for making the trip, once again, quite interesting.  :)

Now I know why peter rebuilt a motor for me what wealth of knowledge is there. ;D ;D I must add a big thank to Peter for helping when I had a minor problem on the way home and the big guy for the wheel nuts. Ten second from out right fun at 110 Kmh no front wheel  is no fun. >:(

Wow Peter, from listening to your knowledge I expected you to be about 80 yrs old. In the pics you only look about 65, just joking. Well done lads, looked like an awesome day. Did anyone tape it?

Thank you very much Peter.

Very informative and daunting all at the same time.

Was a great day and worth the trip for all.

First day back in my Perth office after 2.5 weeks of holiday and work in the Adelaide and Melbourne offices, should have never left my desk.

 

Firstly, a very big thank you to you Peter, for a professional to give up his free time to offer some knowledge that has been obtained over many years to  a group of enthusiasts, is a very rare thing. I was very impressed by your level of detail not only in your workmanship, but also in how well and simply you were able to get your instruction across to us. The planing has begun for a lease of new life in the old girl.. :)

 

And then there is this administrator guy and his girlfriend, who open up their home and feed a complete stranger from the other side of the country, whom they have never met, now that's hospitality. Locky and Jane thankyou. Also a thank you to your mum and dad for looking after us on the day.

 

Finally, just a great bunch of guys, really friendly people to spend a day talking about sports cars, doesn't get much better than that.

 

Hope to catch up with you all again in the not too distant future.

 

Cheers, Billy.

Nice work guys - sounds like it was a good day.

We like to bag the Vics over here, but when it comes to the old Zeds, you've got it sorted!

:D
