    Peugeot is paying for my motorshow entry and drinks. The invite arrived a couple of days ago...

    I would be up for something though, as none of my mates like the motorshow.

    Maybe... Technically, (and to piss me off) my dad gave my sister the invite cos he can't go, but i don't think she wants it.

    So, if that is the case i will have a spare free entry + drinks for someone...

    Seeing as we are on a social note, I don't suppose anyone wants to go for a Reefton run on the 18th or 19th of Feb? Usual start time and BBQ stuff...

    Perhaps we could drop in on Rob Roy which has a Motorkhana on that day...

    The Melbourne Internantional Motor Show will run from the 9th - 19th of February at Jeff's Shed.

    The suggested drive will be a nice drive through the foothills of the Dividing Range in Victoria on either Saturday the 18th or Sunday the 19th of February, 2006...

    The Motorshow finishes at 10pm on Saturday the 18th so I suppose we could go for a drive and have it end in the city for a late lunch / motorshow...

    We could do it on Sunday as well, but the Motor Show finishes at 6pm...I suppose we'd have enough time either way...

    I dunno why I typed that sorry Warwick.

    Its not really fair on you. I've just always hated the BMW stand. They rarely let you in the cars unless you have come from work and are wearing a suit. And the staff are usually arrogant to the point of being rude. There are sometimes really nice people there, but they seem to be the exception in my experience. I dunno, maybe its a reflection on the idiots they possibly have to deal with day in and day out whilst the motorshow is on (like me I guess!). I dunno. But BMW always seem to make it feel like they don't want to be there. Just as well their cars are awesome.

    If you have been there every year for 14 years, your probably stoked your not going to be there!

    Default at least the thread opened discussion!

    ... normally rock up with my mates but i dont think i can take another year of rotary brain damage, and japtastic everything.

    i cant do the sunday 19th motorshow perve and cruise thereafter as i'll be on the annual grape crazing/piss on in the valley, this month.

    but if you guys pick another mutual day, i'd be happy to meet up with any of you. weekend/weekday evening, whatever.

    dont peugeot annually host a pccv arvo? i remember bumping heads with louie and graham wallis one year. might be an option.

    perhaps we can coincide with al's freebee date. and call it a err date.

    Motorshow starts tomorrow ladies...

    The 407 coupe is being launched tomorrow night, and although the first day will be busy, it should be fun.

    Already been, and thank goodness I got a free ticket as well, because it was really boring and really nothing new to look at apart from the Focus.

    Just the same boring whitegoods everywhere. No real innovation as far as im concerned.
