  1. I will be there with my camera, is there any point on the road where the car is airborne? Or at least lifting the inside wheel?
  2. Right so I've been thinking I should probably give up the area rep title, I'm working 56hr weeks in shit reception/data areas and really don't have the time to sort out these meets etc I'll still try to make it to meets and cruises and other oldschool activities. So I guess this post is asking anyone if they're interested? @yoeddynz You have always been the best at organizing all this!! Keen?
  3. Oh hi guys!! Wow I've been so busy that oldschool has unfortunately fallen by the wayside. I do apologize for this and appreciate you guys coming together to sort something out. Definitely keen on the lawn bowls and swap meet!! Much excite
  4. This is most excellent news! I'm always keen on a catch up with you Sam, you also picked a week that I'm working in Brightwater and not Blenheim so that's good. I usually knock off at 3pm so there is a couple of hours that I'll be available for a beverage or 2. I shall pm you my number old chap. As for the meets I must apologize for my slackness, new job has been taking a lot of my focus. I'm really only available for weekend's now as I don't know where I'm working for each week. How about we organize a end of year type thing? Bbq at Rabbit island maybe? Any thoughts or ideas ar
  5. The next meet lands on Thursday the 28th of September, I promise to make this one too!! I am very tempted to enter in the 400m sprint on the Sunday but i'm not 100% sure yet. Anyway i'll see you guys at the pub
  6. Shit! This is tonight! I'm sorry people but I can't make it, double booked myself. I'll head along to the rover car Club meet on Sunday though. @moparmuppet I assume it's at the Pigeon Valley steam museum? I'm always keen to hang out in your sheds and talk shit.
  7. I have a Bee-R Rev limiter that I can sell you? Does everything you are asking and has adjustable gain so you can adjust how hard or soft it limits. Surely it could be modded to work? I can confirm it creates savage backfires/flames/lolz
  8. That right there is a perfect place to practice your technique! Mazda v6 vs BMW inline 6? I think they would probably be a good match in a straight line
  9. There was a couple of times that I i thought I had gone too far but good old e30 held on. Also I was born sideways, seriously. 2 months premature and I was cut out because I was stuck at full lock. The beagle would love the 400m sprint, surely the 4 wheel drive would help you launch?
  10. That's good to know about the cotton overalls! Does the helmet need to be full face? @ThePog I may be able to get my 12 second's back on the sprint haha
  11. Usually no overalls/helmet needed with the grass events, even then it's no biggy to sort those items out
  12. Alright so our next meet will be Thursday the 31st of August. 6pm at the good old moutere inn. I must say the location seems to be working out quite well, it really is a great little pub. I will try to get some photos now that there's a little more sunlight in the day. Oldschool Nelson has also been asked if we would like to do a meet with the Nelson Car Club at a motorkahna or grasskahna event. A few of us have been to a couple of these events and its great fun! So whats the general consensus on this? Are you guys and girls interested in hooning your oldschool car? or any car/work t
  13. The whiskey for tonight is Talisker Dark Storm, The colour is golden amber and the nose has an instant interesting mix of rich, earthy smokiness (this is reminiscent of coal tar soap or freshly laid tarmac), bittersweet malty cereals and barley sugar. The smoke catches the nostrils and has a peppery chili-like edge to it. As these aromas fade a little, others come through - think of vanilla, honeycomb, caramel, fresh green apple, sultanas and a hint of candied orange and brine. On the palate, this is initially quite acrid and slightly bitter with a woody, almost charcoal-like edge. the r
  14. Our next meet is at the Moutere Inn on Thursday the 27th July at 6pm. It's whiskey and cigar night again so dust off your whiskey jackets and come along. I'll definitely participate in the whiskey but not so much the cigars this time, I didn't really enjoy the after taste. See you all there!
  15. Will pretty much nailed it. My tenancy agreement came up the day, which made me realize that I haven't touched the LTD in 6 months (other than running my hand down her body lines as I walk down the shed). If you were to trim down on your projects, what would you sell? I get the impression that your wife's Caddy is your least favorite car? I would be happy to take the toyota hemi off your hands Hahaha. @Willdat? maybe you could change your bike wheels to modgies to get Alex's approval?
  16. Hahaha sounds about right. Oh shit that's right, the battery was inside the truck wasn't it? I met him through a friend, but we do have marine engineering in common. Definitely a great guy with plenty of knowledge. @moparmuppet would you be interested in doing a meet in your shed one day? It will only be members that are here, not posted on fb.
  17. Oh I've seen inside Vaughn's sheds, it's filled with cool shit. Even blasted around the paddock in a pajero that has more rust than it has Mitsibishi. Good times!
