    Airhead reacted to Dalai in Cheetah AF2   
    A few years ago I discovered the Cheetah marque by chance when a colleague mentioned one that may be for sale in the same warehouse where he stores one of his cars... That one needed a lot to get it back racing therefore kept it in mind but didn't make an offer. It did though pique my interest in these particular historic open wheelers as they were made here in Melbourne through the 70's and 80's and kept my eyes and ears open.

    Just last week on the Cheetah FB page, a fully restored MK6 Australian Formula 2 car (62-13) was listed for sale locally. As the restoration was back in the 90's-00's, it will need a full going over and replace anything that may have perished but is otherwise immaculate! So I spoke to the owner and spent a few hours last weekend looking at it and all the relevant documents making an offer the next day. End result is I am the new owner!

    Geez. 10 years. Made me go back and see when I joined and it was 8 years ago. Bought 4 Porsche's in that time, hung some shit here and tried to make people smile/laugh occasionally.
    Lets see if I can do the same for the next 8 - 10.
    Congrats all.

    After only a few laps on the Nordschleife, the weather turned nasty with a forecast of rain for the next couple of days so I decided to head south to the Swiss Alps and spent the next couple of days bombing the holy trinity of mountain passes - Furka, Grimsel and Susten - in perfect weather.
    Vmax for the trip was 282 kph.  Hmmm..Now why am I returning to Australia again?

    I remember that car resided in Bendigo Vic at one point. Owned by the guy who ran the Shamrock Hotel - can't remember his name. I do remember that it sounded really good. - i.e. loud.

    Went to visit the sister. Wasn't very comfortable. And didn't clear the driveway. So impractical these sports cars.

    Quite different on first impressions. Amazing the difference really when they only 4 months apart in build date.
    Think I might have to do a back to back comparison and write something up.
    Yeah. Tell me about it. Bloody raining again today.

    And I went the other way I sold my 964 to Dutton’s last year and replaced it with a 996 I’ve got to say the 964 is a bloody fantastic car but then again the 996 drives even better,happy driving the 964.
