Hi Gavin
I don't know if this qualifies as a "feature car" but I thought you may find these photo's interesting.
The first shows No 54 in GT guise in the Australian GT Championship series. The car following is a works Porche Turbo driven by Colin Bond. The race was won by Alan Jones in an 800 horse power Porche 956 twin turbo.

The second is a shot of the same car running under Improved production Sports Car rules ( no splitter or rear wing). This car held a number of class records.

The black and white shot shows me about to lap Ferdi's similar car fitted with G nose in the Australian Sports Car Championship round At Winton some time in the 80s.

Best wishes

Gordon Dobie

Cheers,
Aaron

Gordon I think I and the rest of Auszcar would be very interested in hearing more of these stories. Perhaps we can continue this discussion via email (gavindoolan at gmail.com) and find a way to best present it on our site?

We could certainly do a write up on your racing history and include some great photos.

Hi everyone,
I think it's about time the homepage got an update, just been really busy with work so I haven't had a chance to follow any of this up. Just emailed a couple of you about feature cars but if anyone else is interested please let me know.

Emailed a few people directly but as of yet no replies. It's good to have a new featured ride on the site as it attracts potential new members to the site and brings in traffic from all over the "internets".

So does anyone want to put the spotlight on their Z. It doesn't have to be finished, heck as long as you can tell a good story or have a good story to share our members will love it.

Or would you guys rather I picked 1 of you? Are you all too modest? :)

I think I am happy enough with my car.  I know I said a while back I would do it, but I didn't get around to it.  I'll put something together, just let me know what you need.

How did I miss this? For sure we can do a write up. I think an interview format works best based on the popularity of the other articles I've done previously it seems to be best if the owner talks about various aspects of the car and build. So if you are still up for it I can send you some questions and we can get something together?

Cool just sent you a Google doc with some questions in it to help create the article. Let me know if you have any problems?

Sure I think I got your email with details so I'll get onto it shortly. Just put Scott's up and have another feature ride in the works so we can do yours after that.

Feature cars don't have to be perfect, the idea is that they inspire others to get on with their projects :).

Not a problem pete would be good to get a +2 up there also. This will be good several cars in a row I've let it slide a bit this year but want to make time for it this year again. It helps grow the community and attracts new eye balls to the site. Will be in contact soon.

Gav,

perhaps you could ask 'Wayne' about featuring his car.  It is easily the best and neatest 240Z I've seen.  I saw it at the Vic Christmas party.  the attention to detail was amazing.  He just wouldn't leave the keys in it  8)

Oh and I couldn't get my 'Man-sized' ar$e in the seat.

Not sure if you have seen this mustard spread. It came up on my news feed this morning.
