    Bump!

    Does anyone have a French car task that would suit a convivial group atmosphere? What about restoration or repair tricks to share? Maybe a strong urge to get on the soapbox about French Car stuff that really ticks them off?

    This is a "club plates" event for the Peugeot Car Club NSW, but that is where the semblance to club events tapers off rapidly.

    Pop in, show your car whether as everyday vehicle or rarefied monument. It's all good. A group procession to the motorkhana may be an option, too.

    I can't come. The RMS will not allow me to renew my rego online. Cant believe in this day and age that there is no phone line open for people like me who cannot get to the centres during their stupid business hours.

    Hope those who attend have a great day

    Some service NSW offices are open on Saturdays. Is your cad on normal reg or historic? AFAIK, historic must be renewed in person.

    I renewed a car online within the last two days with no issues - full rego though.
    As UFO implies, CRS cars have to be in person partly because they can't use e-slips and also that the plates are not on the "main" system.

    Just a reminder, why not call in?

    FRENCH CAR OWNERS MONTHLY TYRE KICKING DAY

    SUNDAY 17th MAY 2015
    I have been hanging around car clubs for about 30 years. I am a member of 2 car clubs (3 counting Aussiefrogs). I for years attended monthly meetings.
    During my club membership days I found that the formal part of the car club general meetings BORING! (Probably necessary, though).
    The really enjoyable parts of the meetings are the pre and post formal meeting “TYRE KICKING”.
    I propose that Sydney/NSW Froggy car owners hold a once a month very informal “TYRE KICKING” gathering.
    Regional, interstate “froggers” along with all age groups and sexes are welcome.
    No committees and no memberships are required.
    The “TYRE KICKING” will be held every 3rd Sunday of the month at a central location, commencing nominally around 10:30am.
    The “TYRE KICKING” should continue through till all, tyre kicking, parts exchanging, information gathering/sharing, boot sales, spruiking, skiting and general “B___S____ing” is complete.
    Attendees may arrive and leave at any time at their leisure, attendees may continue on to a walk, a bike ride, a river ferry trip, a meal, a drive, a drink, an engine overhaul or whatever!

    Anything formal along with any “hooning” shall be frowned upon.



    “FRENCH CAR OWNERS MONTHLY TYRE KICKING DAY”

    *Starting at around 10:30am.

    LOCATION*: Newington Reserve business car park at the north western corner of Holker Street and Slough Avenue, Silverwater 2128.
    (Sydney Olympic Park area)
    (only 300m south of where the French Car Day is held).
    (Enter from southern lane of Holker St or from Slough Avenue)


    *33degrees 49minutes 53seconds SOUTH - 151degrees 03minutes 08seconds EAST.
    *I know the gathering place may not please all, though it is central for most (gives us westies a go), is a sizable well maintained and lawned area that should not be parked out, has amounts of shade, toilets (rough) and under cover awnings for rain, nearby Newington shopping center (within 500m), a nearby river, walks, playgrounds and pushbike tracks for mum and the kids (1km). You may also wish to arrive by ferry (3km) (very pleasant transport).
    Note: Any excuse not to attend will be accepted!

    If you call in someone will hopefully see you there!

    Sorry I missed it - there was a CitroŽn club Tech day just down the road at Schenk's & Co which I attended. Or a motorkhana. Or a National Motoring Heritage Day at multiple sights

    It was quiet but a quality time. Two CitroŽns (that included a factory DS23 five speed) while rest of the French were Peugeot. An interloper turned up with their gorgeous baby daughter in a new Skoda wagon. Shiny, shiny.

    TWO 206 GTi180s - how good is that for a casual event? I was getting hounded to repower the Berlingo with a 180 donk...

    On the way home I saw a tidy greenish-gold R25 surfing the wake of a divvy van.

    G'day,
    after a tour of the neighbouring streets, the local Olympic area and looking at about 47,000 dogs, I did find the area. A very pleasant couple of hours discussing CitroŽns, Berlingos,[I know] postie bikes, engine transplants and Pugs.
    Does anyone know, the BBQ just off the car park, is it free to use? I didn't have the chance to go and look.

    Oh, and where is the discussed restaurant? I would like to leave a review stating that my baby didn't die.
    regards,
    Les W.

    There is a barbecue near the closed cafť which requires bolt cutters to initially operate - thereafter being free.

    Sorry I could not attend, will be at the next "Tyre Kicking" day though (15th June, 3rd Sunday of the month!).

    I attended the Reno State Motorkhana, 40 odd starters, saw a couple of Aussiefroggers there.
    I drove quite well and also had a smashing time, smashed right into Alan McCulloch's nice Gti6"! Bugger!!! A few hundred dollars will be required to fix Alan's car, we hope it will push out, no paint damage.

    Good to see both events go reasonably well today.

    Any more pics?

    I think I'm getting the hang of this with enough confidence to say - "there are no rules. It doesn't matter what else is on, this will still be on"

    Yes, there's always something on. People can decide what matters to them.

    Because "there are no rules" at Tyre Kicking days:- No drip trays are required!! (sorry could not resist)


    (Hope to see you at Tyre Kicking one day KB. Was that dirty great big truck I saw you driving in French?)

    I personally would like to attend the Waddle of Portaloo on 15th, happy to take along a tyre for people to kick there.

    geeze I washed the car this evening (in the almost dark) because I thought it was on tomorrow Was going to pop in briefly before heading off to my nephew's 6th bithday party.

    I even put the new eyebrow trim in (finally) and stuck some washers behind the bottom headlight mounts to get the beams up where they should be. Ah well looks like next month... didn't check the calendar, I see there was a sunday early in the month!

    Barely more than a fortnight to the next meeting.

    The question on everyone's lips is whether STALLED will be coming. Rumour is, he has swapped the Mazdarati for some French metal.
