  1. I've been down to Phillip Island for this event for the last 10 years, and going again in 2020. We stay in Cowes, and as a large group of between 20-30 most years, we book a year in advance. We make it a 6 day trip from Sydney.
  2. I just recently bought an Astra RS-V auto for my wife, $25k drive away demo. Its loaded with every thing and is a quick little thing with its 1.6 litre turbo engine, worth having a look and drive. Dominic.
  3. Stuck in traffic at Wooloomooloo on the way home from work, the F6 got pounded by hail, could only sit there and listen to it. Insurance claim lodged yesterday, I think I'll be waiting a while for any repairs. Dominic.
  4. Big group of us coming from Sydney with the XU-1 club, being the president of the club I'll be in the 911, odd one out there. Have to share the love between the cars. Dominic.
  5. If you missed out on these top dollar Aussie muscle cars at these auctions you have a second chance. They will be on sale at Gosford Bunnings. Dominic.
  6. I had my wife convinced that a WRX would be the perfect car for her (for me really). When she saw it she said I'm not having a boy racer car, so we ended up driving away in a Liberty B4, in black of course. Dominic.
  7. I'll be there with the XU-1 this year. Dominic.
  8. Build two, one of each colour with the Fuch wheels. Problem solved. Dominic.
  9. Congrat's Steve, welcome back to Porsche ownership. Look forward to catching up again. Dominic.
  10. Around Australia, no not quite. It's the annual trip to the Classic at Phillip Island. Took the Porsche this year, was surprised at the fuel economy, used less than half as to what the XU-1 would have used. Yes the XU-1 is an old Torana, 1972 in white. Dominic.
  11. Drove down to Phillip Island for the historic racing. Along the way called into the Holden Museum at Trafalgar. On the way home went to HSV and Walkinshaw Racing, also got to see the car collection at GMH and some of the prototype/ experimental equipment from over the years. Made a pit stop at Southern Rod and Custom in Shepparton, was blown away at the quality (read cost) of the cars being restored. Last stop was the Shepparton Motor Museum. Over 2500k's in 6 days. Dominic.
  12. Great write up Stew. Dominic.
  13. I had an issue with my wipers not returning to the park position when switched off. So seeing as I'm off to Phillip Island in a few weeks time I thought I better fix them. Pulled the steering wheel off, removed the wiper switch, cleaned the contacts and copper tracks, checked switch continuity with the multi meter, so far so good. Test with power on before putting the steering wheel back on, now the washer doesn't work, fiddle around a bit more, now nothing works. Check the fuse, all ok, had 12 volts at the switch on all the correct terminals, still nothing. I'm starting to think the wiper motor has now failed, looked in the front trunk for the wiper motor, where the hell is it? Looked under the dash...ah ha, connector plug not fully seated in it's base. Push it in, all working again now. I now have a clean wiper switch, I was surprised at how much dirt was on the contacts. It probably wont rain on my trip into Victoria now that it's all working as it should...here's hoping! If you are heading to the Phillip Island Classic in a few weeks come and say hello, I will be parked with the XU1's again. Cheers, Dominic.
  14. Have a listen to the band Hellions new album, Opera Oblivia, a good Aussie band. Dominic.
