I just got off the phone with the Moutere inn, this Thursday is whisky and cigar night but is generally pretty quiet for them, the last Thursday of every month works well for them also. 

I'm quite looking forward to this!

I shall see all you guys and girls there!

**Edit**

Tonights whisky is Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Scottish Barley Heavily Peated.

Sounds mighty fine to me.

Was a good meet last night. Good venue, good beer, good fire, good staff, good punters, good yarns, good drive there and back.

Who owned all the OS cars that turned up and left later on ? I spotted an Avenger,  aw11, Starlet, escort etc. They turned up but never came in? 

 

If you're one of them owners and reading this then please do pop in next month and join the table. Don't be shy and sit out in the cold. All we do is talk shit and we are pretty damn chilled :-)

What Alex said.

Thanks all that came along, I'm glad the location worked out! 

That group was probably from the FB event, I shall say something on the next event about coming in and joining us. I didn't expect them to set a table aside for us but that was definitely a bonus.

See you all at the next meet, I'll update the details soon

Hi Nelson Old School, next weekend July 8the Nelson Car Club is running a Rally and we need Block Marshalls. This will be the ONLY way to see the rally cars in action as the is NO spectator watching-(- safety plan gets very complicated and costs go up). If you are keen please contact Phil Collins on 022 049 0884  there will be a training nite on Thursday.

Cheers Tony

Hey crew I was one of the noobs I was with vaughn..(mopar muppet) was good to hang out with you guys. 

You need to see what Mopar muppet is up to. He doesn't post photos yet but he is a hell man hot rodder think v10's plymouth and chrysler from ass hole to breakfast time. His shed is nearly x2 of my house. 

anyway i'll get my hand off it. 

I think all the lads the AW11 and starlet and cef etc were friends with Robert.

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!

Yea untill........ the battery exploded in it and sent acid plastic all directions. How do you know him?? Fishing?

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.

I've got a shed full of shite. Nothing gets worked on. Every project is stalled! I guess being away a lot, and kids first when I am home means the shed is last cab off the rank. Still. After talking to Alex and Hannah at the pub, I am thinking, would less projects give me more focus? Dunno. Maybe change my username to Gunna. 

I'm not a flatpeaker sort of bloke and don't do facestalk. Obviously, being away a bit makes things hard to plan ahead too, but we can probably sort something for sept-oct when stuff settles down with work. I may even introduce myself on the board if Scott shows me how.

To be honest, most of this quote means you'll just fit in with the rest of us and our various inadequacies better. @sidewaysicknessis as good as you'll get to an 'OS first' guy locally, the rest of us just make it when we can, which is pretty much a Nelson lifestyle slogan! Would be great to meet up when it suits.

Will try and drag @scootersdown to Hanmer at the end of August for the real eye opener. We can take MTB bikes too which @yoeddynz won't like because our wheels are too big and have too few gears.

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?
