This afternoon I was on my way to an appointment with my eye surgeon and we were stopped at the intersection of Victoria Pde and Hoddle street when I spyed a white troopy in front of us...[a small car was between us and them] I said to Al that it looked well kitted out..then the small car darted into the right lane..and we could see that the troopy had 2 spares, hilift, canvas bag hanging over one of the spares, roof rack, with 2 blue lpg bottles up top....and....and EO sticker on the rear bar....which caused great excitment in the Pewter LC100TD behind it......the Troopy had WA plates.....so we're wondering if anyone knows of any WA visitors who may have been travelling through Melbourne today....and...if you were driving the white Troopy..it was Al and I gesticulating like mad people behind you...which caused some concern to the woman in the Echo beside us....ahhahahahahaha...

Hey sounds like fun.. as long as no tramcars were held up, delayed or obstructed. I believe that under the tramways act of victoria, 1921, as amended that it is still punishable by incarceration for offences that cause even the slightest transgression of these rules. I recall in 1971 that someone got 8 years for diverting a 69 tram by tampering with the points near carlisle st in St Kilda.... serious stuf that... Oh by the way how do you tell if its Xmas in Melbourne... (No racist slurr intended) ... the tram drivers have tinsel thru their Turbans....

it was I Richard & Robyn Kovac of Cloverdale in WA
Being born and bred in BROADFORD and have lived in WA for 16 yrs (you never become a west Ozie) I do remember that the fastest way to Melboune is to shoot up Hoddle street (sorry) we were just trying to get of the e tag roads.
We had to make the trip to Melb. because the brand new HF Barrett radio lost it's antenna at Innamincka i'm still seaking warranty!
A lot has changed since i did my time in western subs in 1978.
I made sore that the free sticker was put on as i had read in a lot of post that not may have ben seen.
I'm sorry we did not notice you behide us but if you ever get to WA please send a message

Hi Richard, if you are coming over again, you should post too, theres heaps of people who can make your day/s a joy on here, even just dropping by for a cuppa and a chat is great. Good to see the story unavel here, and I am not sure if I would have tooted either, but I am thinking of placing an EO sticker inside that car for a tooting/showing sticker experience.
