 I would also like to thank Kez for putting three of us in the "Black Room" today, along with his RS.

For those who don't know, it was Kerry, who kicked off the PFA way back in 2009 or thereabouts.

The first three members who helped get the PFA off the ground were Doug and Chris and myself.

To see how big the forum has grown over those years, has just been unbelievable.

It was a big surprise today, to be told I was in the "Black Room" I had no idea what that was, or why I was directed in there by Hugh.

Then finding out it was for recognition of us being the original members and moderators of the PFA was very gratifying.

Remembering the first SMT we did on a wet and wild winters day, starting at the base of Arthurs Seat with introductions and hand shakes...... compared with the SMT's now, with anything up to 40 plus cars at times..

Who would have thought it would have grown into what it is today.  

So thanks again Kez and thanks to all the members who make up our great forum

For those who didn't get to the "Black Room"  L to R....Dougy's Long Bonnet, Kez's RS, my Cayman S, and Chris's GT4.

 @Harvs11 Cheers mate 👍

 I'm still 200km from home but stopped for a coffee, so this will be brief....or not

   My main aim to drive over was to meet the people I have 'known' for a few years since I joined the forum, and the cars were just a bonus, albeit a pretty f....ng big one! MAN have you lot got some cool cars over there! I can't even begin to say how gobsmacked I was seeing some stupidly clean and rare cars. Kid in a lolly shop is an understatement. 

 I will say I have been secretly busting to see your RS up close @Kerryand your blue one @hugh, and I wasnt disappointed. Two perfect cars in my eyes. I'll probably post up here again later when I get home, as there are 4 rather large dudes casing me and my car at the moment, so I will grab my bat just incase and get back on the road. 

 Mega job to all concerned, I left with a big smile on my face.  Chat later 👍

Mega day. 

Kerry, Hugh, John and Rohan, congrats for pulling off such a great event. The combination of venue and curated cars in addition to lines of awesome cars outside made for a captivating event. Add to that all the familiar faces - and new ones - and it couldn’t have been better. 

Quick thanks also to the peeps who chatted with Ryder (aka Little Andy), making him feel welcome.

Probably worth acknowledging Rohan Little and his team at Skunkwerks who were no doubt an integral part of the event being that it’s their place.

Yes my mistake on not thanking the team from Skunkworks for hosting the event. Sorry about that guys. Well done to you all....

Thanks to all involved! Your efforts were truly valued. Cracking time was had. Super atmosphere. Super meeting new people who are so passionate about the hobby and catching up with the ones I already knew. Will be hard to beat next year! 3 cheers for hb2!

Great day, great drive down this morning!

I have over 140 pics to sort through but here's one you might like....  getting there. Pitstop at Coles Express Laverton. No-one buying petrol, just parking and having a yak.

Kinda filled the joint!!

Great to see my old 356 down there.

And also the green car  - 72 S soon to return home to Che Skids 

Looks like a great turnout and well done to all who made long journeys.

Thanks to all those involved for organising and running the day.  Also big thanks to the Skunkwerks team for their picturesque venue.

I probably should have been a little more social, but it was good to meet a few people and put faces to names.

@Philbee That shot of the 356 inside is a cracker mate! Ok to use it on Instagram? Great to meet you too 👍

 Ok, this may offend many people who displayed their cars, and it was a VERY hard decision to arrive at with so many incredible cars, but this is my belle of the ball owned by @hugh  (Ha! Just noticed my car in the background which was completely unintentional)

 And a very very close second, Nick's ex Skunkwerks beast. I fell in lust with both very quickly
