    FRENCH CAR OWNERS MONTHLY TYRE KICKING DAY
    (French cars are also welcome )


    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”.

    Sydney/NSW Froggy car owners NOW 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” is held the 3rd Sunday of each month , commencing nominally around 10:30am & usually people drift off from about 1:30pm.

    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! Bring your club plated car or bring your dog?

    NOTE: Anything formal is strictly banned.

    I would so love to come! Unfortunately 16th is out for me, but if any of the usual crowd want to take the blue 605 they are welcome. It was washed two weeks ago.

    cam85,

    sorry your above action is "banned":-"Anything formal ....... shall be frowned upon."

    I am sure that there are more French car owners out there that are prepared to do a bit of "tyre kicking" (socializing) than we think, and they are all welcome to visit on Sunday (with or without thier French car).

    See you there Cam.

    Tyre Kicker.

    I'd still like some sense that there will be a few tyres to kick before giving up my normal morning ride and heading across town - or is that too formal?

    Where are the Citroen owners? eg: Renault12 or MichaelR - would love to see your cars! Any Renaults?

    Ha! Single me out eh? ZERO Pugs turned up for my last French Car Coffee Morning so I am still feeling a bit miffed
    French Car Coffee Meeting, Narrabeen, 20 October

    Actually I would like to attend but I might have to work, but put me down as a possible.

    Just a little off-topic, here is another possible venue for social meets, a cafe in Brookvale with a motoring theme. They will be licensed soon for a bar upstairs with coffee and "American Diner" food below.

    Many of the non-critical components of my Volvo are French, such as the lamp covers and other plastic covers and such. All the critical parts are Bosch. Fortunately. Won't show up to this one as I'm way over committed. Perhaps next one. Addo, might take you up on the 605 offer.

    Well considering that is about 5 minutes from home, I think (no other activities planned by the other half but not yet disclosed permitting) that I should make an appearance!

    I'm hopefully picking up the headlight trim tomorrow morning, and if fitted on Saturday the S16's front end will be back to pre-accident condition!

    I haven't checked in for weeks, as I've been so busy, very good timing to do so!

    Thought I'd post an aerial view. Is the plan to park in the business carpark or on slough Ave? I would think that the business carpark should be empty on a Sunday, and cars would be closer together The carpark can be accessed either from holker st, or from Slough ave, so I am assuming this is where you meant bigrr

    For those coming from Parramatta rd down Silverwater road, it may be easier to turn right into Fariola St (one before Holker) and then left into Slough Ave.
