    Na, nothing ever happens up there, cos all the influential members drive Citroens which are always broken down so they can't make it to any social events

    We've all still got a hangover from last time we went to the pub.

    If you look in the motorsport forum, a fair few of us are going to the track together on Easter Monday.

    Hahaha, you sound like you've spent too much time at Melbourne events

    We're really mean to the poor old Citroens. Everyone always joked about having to chip in for a tow truck to follow us around if we ever had one turn up to a drive. We get our FIRST ever Citroen on a drive event, guess what...

    True to character, err, it had to 'take a break' by the side of the road

    This is why you always take the Volovlov on any drives is it Justin?

    BTW, the biggest problem we have up here isn't the Cit drivers, it's the Pugs. They don't seem game to take 'em further than about 10klms from home.
    I'm happy to go somewhere decent but a trip to the bloody Gold Coast is about as enjoyable as having a leg off by local anaesthetic as it means I have to travel about 4 - 5 hours on the round trip in solid traffic & as I have to mix it with Sunshine Coast, Brisbane & Gold Coast traffic, and is a trip to be avoided at all costs.
    Something north of Brisbane or even west is a possibility but I think the area we're spread over is the biggest problem.
    I've had a couple of goes at organising even overnighters which included some social activities but they all went & hid until I went away.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    There was supposed to be a Peugeot Parade through Lismore tomorrow but it was cancelled for some reason. I was going to take a look as I'll be in Lismore anyway. Oh well.

    When is the Concours on this year?
    It's usually around July 14. I'll be in "Grease Monkey" territory the first week of July so I don't want to miss the concours
