    no worries Stu .. for anyone who's up for 154km of twists and turns you'll find us (at the very least a blue Golf R and a yellow Skoda Octavia) at the Manningham Rd Doncaster maccas at 8:30am tomorrow.

    proposed route:

    I'll come along for a bit, but may have to leave you guys to it after Healesville. You'll probably be sick of me holding you guys up by then anyway! Haha.

    I'll catch you guys tomorrow.

    awesome, see you then Stu. Nah don't think a 306 will hold us up any, we won't be speeding (too) much .. and I know just how well pugs can corner : )

    we have 4 confirmed now btw.

    ps. you might want to edit your phone number out of that last post.

    Sounds good!

    Re the phone number - I thought only AF members could see the social events forum? I don't think anybody on here would really want my number tbh... Better to be safe than sorry though!

    Catch.

    Cheers for organising this one Todd, it was a good morning. The drive through Toolangi was great fun! Just wish I didn't have to head off after Healesville... Keep me posted if you guys planning another drive anytime soon.

    Cheers,
    Stu

    I wouldn't mind coming along if you don't mind a 504 being part of the group! My car isn't quite sorted yet though.

    The route looks good.

    I will come along. A regular drive would be great. We are coming up to the nicer weather and even earlier will be better.

    Would love too, but there is no rearbeam in my 205 at the moment and I'm in the middle of changing it from drums to discs.

    So no. Sorry man.

    Haha, I reckon that's a fairly legit excuse Chris! How much else have you gotta do? Any other takers for a cruise? I was the only Frenchy last time out...

    We have 8 confirmed so far

    ps. Daylight savings starts on the same day.

    not a problem Stu, thanks for coming out .. was a great day.

    we'll run with your suggestion re the direction for next month's cruise, and for a change of pace we're gonna drive the Warburton to Marysville road .. hopefully that will tempt some more Pugs and Renaults out onto the tight twisties that they are made for

    I drove this road with around 20+ other pugs many years back and it was bloody awesome.

    - ROUTE UPDATE - The Big Mama

    ok, just for something different for all the hill-whores out there to try, I've updated the route for Sunday 6 November. All roads are sealed.

    Starting point is now Knox shopping centre, and we'll meet up slightly earlier at say 8am, departing at 8:15am. If you miss the meet, just head to Gembrook and you'll find us all in a carpark on the west side of the train station.



    starting here:



    and some pics of the brilliant section of road between Warburton and Marysville : )

    My 504 could keep up with that crowd... yeah right!

    Are you changing from Saturday to Sunday instead? I'm keen to join one of these cruises (soon, when my car is sorted) but Saturdays work, Sundays don't.
