  1. That's good Phil. I was in Ipswich from 77 - 84. There was one good one but even he had his moments but the rest, well I think I will leave it there.
  2. All good Jason. Yes was a very interesting time. Fondly for us plebs is not a word I would useπŸ˜€ If you were on a motorcycle or driving a Porsche (of which I had both) you were singled out, sometimes in a dangerous manner by the Gestapo err sorry I mean policeman even though I was doing nothing wrong. Tried to take the cops to court one day to get off a ticket that was absolute bullshit and was told in no uncertain terms by the Police (not a Lawyer) don't bother, you won't get off and implied "we know where you live" That is just one of many stories I could tell you and believe me that is tame. When was he in Ipswich Phil?
  3. Good thing he didn't get a shot of the driver. Would have spoiled a good photoπŸ˜›
  4. Hey Jason you weren't a cop in Ipswich back in the late 70's early 80's were you? If so, It wasn't me, I wasn't there and I didn't ask this question πŸ˜€πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ Boy could I tell you some stories about QLD cops back in those days. We never called them the Police Force, we called them Joh's Gestapo and for good reasons🀬
  5. Why Oh why didn't I keep my old 911E. One of the few vehicles I've regretted selling (and not because of the value now). Sold it back in 1990 (I think) for $20K. AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH. Sorry had to vent. Nice car by the way. GLWS.
  6. Hey wilson59 do you or did you live around the Semaphore area? I used to know a bloke who was into Ducati's big time with a surname of Wilson in the Semaphore area (I won't give out exact suburb). I used to be a DOCSA member but way back in 1979.
  7. Yes I watched that and thought yeh fine..................................if I had access to all the tools he had access to.
  8. I actually looked into this a few years ago but decided not to as I heard but not seen, that depending on the movie/commercial you don't drive the car and you don't really have a say on how it's used. I remember a telemovie starring Gary Sweet that used a black 911 and apparently it was thrashed during the movie on dirt roads and got dusty and muddy and no care was taken to clean it. Now I have to admit that this was hearsay and I did not witness this but just heard rumours through the Porsche grapevine. If you are considering this you may want to see the fine print of any contract and if in doubt walk away.
  9. Didn't disagree with anything he said. When there is a level playing field I will watch every F1 race again because at the moment it's certainly NOT the best driver winning the championship. Put manual shift gearboxes box back in and that will liven the racing up (yes I know that's not going to happen). Put the same dollar limit on all teams and technical development and get rid of non safety drivers aids and we might get back to some interesting racing. Let the driver win the race and not just the car (and dollars) and also make it mandatory that drivers don't get a free ride because daddy has some money. Let him earn it like everyone else. I could go on but I think I've said enough to show my disappointment of the F1 I once loved and watched every race no matter what time it was on for years.
  10. I bet you nearly shat yourself Lee watching that. Bet that brought back memories of Adelaide hills and guard rails (or was it a cliff or maybe both) πŸ˜€πŸ˜‚πŸ€£
  11. What? You trusted Adam.πŸ˜€ Well there's a first.πŸ˜€ I'm Kidding. Adam is Mr 928. He knows more about the inside of a 928 (especially the engine ) than any of of usπŸ˜€ I really am just joking. He helped me with my 928 (amongst other things) as well. Hey WitchFinder whereabouts in Adelaide are you?
  12. Too late BMW have already done that πŸ˜€
  13. Wow, wow and wow. Very nice and unusual but lovely colour
