    Time for a QLD cruise again

    Ok, I am suffering withdrawal symptoms. I need to get out. I need the wind in my hair and bugs in my teeth. Let's drive.

    Who...All French cars, Pugs, Cits, Reno's, we would love to see em' all.

    When... Mutually agreeable time for most ppl, prol not for at least a month to get the most ppl possible this time.

    Where... I am going to leave someone else to sort that detail out. I would love to try the Brisbane Valley area. Chipper, you have been on a cruise out there haven't you?

    How...Get in your ride with a friend if you want, cruise to the spot that we choose to meet, drive for a few hours fast/slow/backwards, enjoy the scenery.

    Thats all there is to it.

    Dude

    All kinds of driving, if you want to hang back, so beit (pfft, yeah right) or you can go bananas, the consequences be on your own head my friend, but we usually take it reasonably easy with a spirited burst here and there.

    Be a great run for the S16, long sweepers, tight hairpins, Pug territory.

    All welcome

    Cheers and see you there

    I got an E-mail from Chipper today because he can't access the net from work anymroe. Apparently they found he was operating a Pr0n site from his work box (jokes)

    Anyways, away from potty talk, he has asked me to post the info about the cruise for all to digest.

    JR, he's specifically wants you to go. He muttered something about 110kw and 800kg or something or other being a sure hit with the Rice Boys

    So here we are...details below, enough to get your tyres warm and heart pumping.

    It would be good to have a strong contingent of French cars there, if not for just effect, but also as a chanve to all catch up or meet for the first time.

    I think it might also be pretty cool if we all meet some where before hand, and rock up together as a group.

    We all came marching one by one, hurahh...hurahh....

    Derek,
    I have been following this post with great interest... I think these guy's need an old fart like me along to keep them on the staight and narrow great opportuninty to loosen the reins on the XM although I know it would be one of the heard rather than showing the way On this occasion I won't be able to make it family commitments, but I look forward to pics and vids, I think Chipper could manage a couple of 360's (all cameras will be watching chipper ) Looks like a great drive so if you can make it up you'll have a ball. The rest of you frogs get out there and have fun, I'm in for the next one

    Cheers

    Hey Lads

    I’ve gotta bit going on at the moment probably not the only one though.

    I might come on the cruise.

    Just lately I have been getting a bit sick of the 17, I’m seriously looking at getting a New Car.

    You guys will probably be disappointed but I’m actually having a look at Nissan Pulsar GTi-R. I want something that will shut my mates up and run good ETs. Only thing holding me back is the Insurance at this stage.
