  1. Rudge Fixie can go on the footpath near the door. 80's Mitsubishi can park with the main OS group.
  2. Do it. Make sure they're completely exposed for max effect.
  3. Keep the free Burgers thing under your hat - there will be a limited number of burgers but we're all welcome to have a meal on the house . I'm looking for 3-5 standout cars to be displayed in front of the new store. Does anyone have any suggestions or would they like to put their hands up? The Facebook event is here - invite your friends: https://www.facebook.com/events/445410595792034/
  4. I've been emailing the local owner of Burgerfuel and the national marketing manager this week and they're really Keen for a good display of cars. We'll get preferential parking next to the restaurant and can park a couple of cars on the footpath by the entrance too. They've offered to put us to the front of the line for burgers and everyone will get a free full meal (burger, fries and drink from the fridge). So we get fed before the expected 150+ local punters. I'm Keen to get a good turnout for this one, so get the word out!
  5. There's a new Burgerfuel opening in Hamilton and we've been invited to head along and get free burgers! They will be having a cook off at the new store where all the staff practice cooking burgers and test the equipment before the actual opening date on the Monday following. The owner has extended a personal invite to oldschool.co.nz to come along and display our cars and enjoy free burgers. They'll also be bringing along their 1971 Ford Ranchero ute to display with our cars. The details are: Burgerfuel Rototuna Saturday 22 April from 11am until 1pm. FREE BURGERS There's also a possibility of moving our meets out to Rototuna, so we should head down there and scope it out. Who's keen?
  6. Oh wow, you went to Elan Motorsport. That's sweet!
  7. Who's coming? Also, see you at the meet tomorrow.
  8. I hear it's been flooding over there so there's plenty to soak up!
  9. Post updated and Facebook event created. See y'all in a couple of weeks!
  10. Thread updated. Get to Burgerfuel on Jan 19th for our first meet of the year!
  11. Pete missed out on the last one. Would it be possible for someone to check this one out? You'll be compensated for any costs that you rack up because Pete's a GC. http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1220931649
  12. I'm sure DCC members will be keen to do two events in two weeks? Shame about the rally, but there'll be another one.
  13. The Manawatu Car Club is now running a 4.5km sealed Autocross on December 17th (in place of the circuit tarmac rally that was cancelled). It's not often you get a chance to skid the full track at Manfeild and they'll be running in both directions. It's a real head f*$% to drive the track backwards. I highly recommend it! Entry and info is here: http://manawatucarclub.org.nz/event/manfeild-4-5km-sealed-autocross/
  14. Fixed the link now. All the auction says is Christchurch. I've messaged the seller to get a more specific answer.
  15. Hi guys, I've got a good friend coming over from Australia in January and he's planning to buy a van to camp in and tour around NZ. He's a mechanic and a mega GC and would like for someone to look over the van before he buys one. The current contender is this lovely Estima: http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1205670936 I would hugely appreciate if an oldschooler could help out on this one. Pete is a great dude and would definitely trade man hugs / beer / sharns / mechanical help in return for your services. He'll also be looking for a place to store the van if they do buy it. If anyone's got yard space or knows of an affordable option, let me know. Cheers guys!
  16. Might be wise to call them again for this week? Weather should be sweet
