  1. Looks like there is a quite a bit on down south in a few weeks. I am considering, any or all these options below. Who's going? Might find somewhere to stay if anyone in central is keen to go catch up with southland's finest?


    Otautau Car Show saturday 23rd

    Invercargill Street Sweep. Some sort of evening cruising. Night of 23rd. Not sure if this is a full on southern bogan fest or something worth checking out?

    Drive for Life at Teretonga on the 24th. Cheap track day with no safety gear required.

    Keen on some cruises to shows over the next few months. Seems like there is a lot on so it would be good to get to a couple of them and catch up with some of you

  3. Last year was pretty good. It’s almost worth entering the car for the $10 as it includes all passengers. It’s $5 entry fee... so just weigh up your options. Last year we parked up together in the show with a gazebo and refreshments. Was not a bad day and there was at least 500 cars or more entered in from all walks of life. If the weathers good it will be a good cruisy day For sure.

  4. Was up there over labour weekend on the saturday. Good last little shred around! Now, that winter is over and Spring is here can we get together sometime. Only thing I've planned is to head over to Timaru for the four and rotary champs later in November. Gonna make a weekend out of it... the gf is somewhat not impressed about, firstly going to Timaru for the weekend and that we are going there to look at and watch cars... hahahahahahah.

    Did anyone make the car show down south earlier in the month?

    Won’t be able to make it as I will be at the Hoptober Fest. 

    I might go to Coffee and Cars this Sunday @ Warbirds over Wanaka. Depending on snow conditions.

    Still snow to be had. Was up Cardrona Sunday for sbinz boardercross event. Still got one day pass to use up there next few weeks. So will get over there one more time. 

    Keen to lock in coffee over cars for first Sunday of November though

    hmmm forecast didnt look too bad for satdee last time i checked.. rain or shine ill give it a nudge. best spring conditions for a loooong time 

    edit: except of course if road is chains/4wd only...

    Yeah, shouldn't be too much snow coming through until sunday from the forecast but that could all not happen as thats days away. Saying wind and snow down to 700metres for sunday. So could be pretty fresh!

    im looking pretty flaky for sunday now, unsure if ill make the blossom festival. but ill deffs be on board with the mish up coronet satdee. might even wire in an 2nd engine fan for the trip up, shits gonna get hot. 

    i hope @kiwi808 is coming up in the 808, wont be the same without it. 

    Yup. The spring weather is looking more than a bit average for the weekend at the moment. Might still do a slide up the hill Saturday, probably would have anyway. If the cruise up doesn't happen lets def schedule it in for another time. Apparently its suppose to snow to 700m on Sunday and be windy as so who know what the Blossom Festival will be like???!

     Cardrona was closed today but is open tomorrow for what should be an epic pow day. Cardies was at 35+ cms this morning and it’s still snowing!

    Got myself up Coronet Super early yesterday. Was pretty epic, most of town was there though so i got a handful of laps in and then boosted off. Cant complain about a big spring snowfall!!! Means its gonna be awesome for the next couple of weeks!
