Driving down along the Yarra , minding my own business and Bam , there is a EO sticker , a closer look and hey, that my old cruiser. A smile comes across my face , then a look of confusion and I don't recognise the driver. Then all hell breaks loose as I see it pull into Lexus stadium. Could my worst thoughts be a reality, is it possible that a COOLLLLLINGWOOOOD Player had bought my old cruiser . Man that's to hard to handle , if this is true , please contact me asap so I can buy the car back lol . Quick before my kids find out

Eric, always a car of interest in the foyer at the RACV Club, usually a vintage or veteran. This week there are two Euro supercars. Apparently the one they had there last week sold while it was there, once again a Euro supercar. Bonz, you shoulda become a member.

Knew a fellow back in the 60s that had an Aston Martin Vantage - yunno, with the triple side draft Webers. Had to get a clutch replaced as they hadn't put a cover and filtering over it as they thought it was for racing. Instead had a bit of dirt from country roads that did it in ;-))))

Eric, get a bit dirt in your new glovebox mate. LOL

Trucky, I am sure you can get those on eBay.
