Is anyone going to Wheels 2012.
I met a couple of the Canberra team at Marques in the Park last year.
I have a restored 240Z I would like to take.
Please ring me at home on Oh Two SixTwoEightSixOneThreeSevenNine after about 6.00 PM

I was wondering when this would be on!!!

My R30 Skyline isnt exactly ready for display, its a real mess actually. (plus the no rego issue haha)
Will still be popping over to say hi, its only 3 km walk!

I might contact canberra connect to see about a day rego thingy, for transport to the mechanic (surely there will be a mechanic there?)
