Hey guys,

I was lucky enough to tag along on a VicZCar.com cruise, along the Great Ocean Road, down here on the southern coast of Australia. It was a dreary old day, making it difficult to really get the most out of the beautiful twisty segments of this much revered stretch of road, but it was a great event nonetheless. I'll be posting more photos later in the week, and perhaps some video if we can get it together in time - but in the meantime, here's a couple of my favourite shots.

I do have larger versions of these images - wallpaper sized in fact  8) - but you'll have to wait till my article goes up on grandJDM.com ;)

Looks like a great day. I'm assuming that there will be tons of coverage and some vids and stuff.

Van : Wallpaper sized on flickr as well! Excellent.

Hi Eddii unfortunately it's very slow due to our current server. I have just purchased a new hosting account with a new company that should rectify the problems and have us running in good steed. I will be working toward getting us up and running on the new server over the next week or two (provided things go well).
