    Default Greetings to the blue 505 STI in Newcastle

    Hi, saw you going up the Pacific Highway some time ago, I think you waved, but I was too busy thinking, ‘gee, that’s a lot of lights that 505 has there…!’ and thus rudely ignored you…
    So I just thought I’d say hi...it’s good to see some people in Newcastle drive decent cars!

    That'll be Bowie, in the blue STi.

    The car's other use is to light up Energy Australia stadium during night games.............



    Give us a wave if you see a cream STi (when its running), but usually at the moment I'm in the little LOUD red Swift GTi. Poor pug's feeling neglected at the moment.

    lol no hard feelings mate. I was actually coming back home from being up north and i must have waved at about 1000 frenchies..

    Yeah those lights do make it rather easy to see at night

    My old man had it a while back as his work car and well.. we all thought he was going a bit blind, but when he came back with that WRC inspired lighting apparatus, we couldn't help but feel a tinny bit sorry for the old guy

    lol Viva La France'

    Yeah it really is slumming it compared to 505 god how I love those seats and soft marshmellow ride.......

    But gee's it nice on petrol, even though it gets revved. Almost got a full set of Koni adjustables (which apparently they don't make anymore) for it but the harsh ride got Veto'ed by SWMBO.... Damn

    mmm dark blue... me thinks that will be the colour of my next 05..

    ill e sure to give ya frogy salute when ever i doth pass .. actually not realy sure what a froggy salute is... maybe we can create one... one that involves beer..

    Ah now this gives me a fantasic idea... instead of just waving at fellow french nutters... hold a carten out the window If that doesnt get French men waving to each other, i just dont know what will

    Yeah it really is slumming it compared to 505 god how I love those seats and soft marshmellow ride.......
    Marshmellow.. now that is an apt descripton

    Well if thats not a GREAT idea I don't know what is.

    What say people to a Cruise New'y (and Hunter) style......... Leave the pugs at home and go get a beer or three and a $5 steak at the Crown and Anchor???

    Except whoever owns that turbo 505, they have to chaffuer us there and back joking

    Anyway, maybe in the future a gathering can be arranged....

    Spoilt for good roads up there.
    How does your 505s go on Buckets Way (a bit lumpy) and Thunderbolts.
    Love the bends , Gloster to Nowendoc and straights to Walcha. (Think Toccata and Fugue in D minor)
