    Well the Adelaide boys weren't the only ones who went for a little drive on Sunday, although we did it in the arvo instead.

    I think 9-10 cars attended in total, with quite a few FChatters among those (Millard, AndrewWA, Looney, Pete, grantj and myself).....a nice day capped off with dinner overlooking the city skyline.

    I think Looney fell in love all over again (with the 355)....all it needed was a Challenge grille. :)

    Thanks to Andrew for allowing me to occupy his passenger seat during the run, and to John for giving me a lift home after dinner.

    A few photos.....not all red either.

    I have to say i think most peoples cars were actually nicely detailed on the day anyway, especially that 355 it looked real slick in person.

    I popped into Barbagallo's to check out the 355 they have for sale there, and it is a real let down after seeing such a nice clean example.

    unfortunately not. :( There are only a couple of Lambo owners who ever go on the runs (Diablo, Countach and 40th Ann Murci) but its rare. I don't think the Porkers are welcome actually.....

    haha sometimes we're racist and have a theme day...

    only 2 lambos come to play so far, though we've had interest from at least 2 others and goober's should be out to play in a month or two hopefully...

    Great pix, Dingo.

    It's not fair - you've got a better array of cars, much better photography (including shots on the move), and fancy borders on the pics. The light looks better too (its hard shooting at dawn, damn it). :D

    Great work Dingo, as good, if not better than any of the professional photographers at track days.

    taking nothing away from the event but we do it a bit harder, this is a cruise which is still good, and we have the official porsche werks driver in his GT3 that sets the pace..................................................and its too fast

    I used to love going on cruze's and just flogging the balls off my car, but as im getting older, i enjoy a more lesurely pace (still brisk however), purely because I value my license too much to loose it.

    I think i need a radar detector.

    do they still work? surely with laser having such a fine beam when your detector goes if all it does it tell you you've just been hit!

    Thanks for the compliments guys. :)

    I have thought the same thing (since laser is line-of-sight), the only thing I can think of is that when the laser beam bounces off cars ahead of you then your detector will pick it up.... :confused:

    that is exactly right, it does you no good if theres no one else around, however as long as theres someone ahead of you, your OK.
