I just heard that John (Johnboy) has water coming from his breather at the rocker cover and can't start the car. If any Tassie members are around and available to help a stranded Zed Brother they may be in touch but i think biggest problem would be sourcing the vrs kit.

Mighty Mick drove up to Stanley with a trailer and took the car back to his work shop that night, put a new head gasket in it the next day and we picked it up that night. Thanks heaps Mick. We drove it back to Cradle Mt that night. And to day we are in Strahan. Sth west. had a great drive today, hooked up with 5 motorbike guys from Melb and tore up the road from Cradle Mt to Strahan. Awesome roads. And sat down and had a coffee with them after. Cheers Gordon.

Hi guys, we arrived at Port Aurther  yesterday and went on the Ghost tour, good fun. This morning we al went on a boat tour around the south and saw hundreds of Dolphins riding the bow of the boat, lots of seals and cliff fasces .After lunch we headed up to White Sands via Bicheno. The place has been up dated with a huge pool and restruant and bar. And the bad news is Craig has blown his Diff in the car park and dumped oil everywhere . So he is not going anywhere . The RACV are helping us out with a truck to take it to Devonport tomorrow morning and Mighty  Mick is offering his help again. We Love you Mick!!!! He is trying to grab another diff and hopefully it all comes together tomorrow . How good is this Guy Mick. Thanks Mate. Lots of love Craig.

You cheeky bastard Chris. I'm here all stressed.  ;) all organized and looking forward to mighty Mick working his magic for the good of a fellow V8 Zed man. Cheers Craig.
PS Any spare 3.9 LSD R200 diffs around give me a yell.

You could always paint your zed yellow and install some rotating lights on the roof and charge an arm and a leg on callouts....

Spotted, on the hoist, Mick with spanners in hand. Look's like you will have to start wearing your undies on the outside now Mick 'ol Bean! Johnny's going like a freight train now? Gorden are you going to start a GTR Taxi service? I'm really hoping I didn't mix Dale's  name up too often, LOL.

Well we all made it home safe and sound after another great week in Tassie. There were many highlights including seeing 100's of dolphins on our boat trip. Amazing. Some incredible driving stints which will be remembered for years to come. Thanks again to "Mighty Mick" for ensuring we all got home safely. If you are ever in Tassie look him up and say hello. His awesome V8 Zed is something to be seen and heard.
Thanks to all who came. I know you all had a ball. Till next time stay safe.
Cheers Craig (Tour Director)  ;)

Hi Guys, had a great time in Tassie as always, There is one way to describe the driving. It would be like doing  30 or 40 laps at Phillip Id each day, you can figger that out right? So I have posted all my Photos on Photo Bucket and you will have to fogive me for lots of GTR shots, it just got in the way. Everytime I got out of the car it was there. Click on the link. Cheers. PS Sorry these photos are loaded from back to front , so if you start from the end and work back it shoud be OK.
