Saturday 4th June - drive for a pie - photos

Post by GreaseMonkey » Sat 04 Jun, 2011 3:20 pm

Hi guys, a fun morning for all, and of course always good to put faces to names, meet and chat.
After all that, I didn't even get a pie, was too tempted by the bacon and egg roll!
Started out a bit chilly, but once those SLCs got going we could feel the global warming kick in.
If anyone likes to get out for a drive for the sake of it, and a feed and chat, I would suggest this format could work anywhere.
Obviously not everyone can get everywhere, but if there are a few in your area why not do the same, and set up regular regional drives, it worked for us.
I would suggest rather than trying to debate it too long trying to get interest, if there are two of you who can agree a route reasonably local to you, set a time and place and post it on here with a couple of weeks. or better, a months notice, and see who wants in.
For those that didn't make it, here's some photos.
Cheers guys!
Chris M.

It was a great run and nice to put faces to names of those I didn't already know. We must make this a regular event! Maybe heading in a different direction out of the city each time. Maybe "Pie in the Sky" on the old highway at Cowan would good for one in the future and something around Kurrajong and in the Southern Highlands would be good for others.

Thanks for posting the pix. Looks like a good turn out.

As it happens, I also had an MB day and was busy with the camera as well. I travelled to Stuttgart in a new ML at speeds around 200km/h at different times and spent the day in the Mercedes Benz Museum. :)
Cheers,
Michael

John forgot to mention the 350 only runs on 2 stroke when it hits 7500rpm. it did see the high side a couple of times - I was trying to get Martin to go faster than 35km/h :happy3:

Yes, new valve stem seals are req'd, but after 309000km without a rebuild, it's not bad going really.

Looks like you all had a good time. Well done to the organisers.

That is one beautiful cabriolet!

Hopefully, I will be there next time.

Good day - I was in the mood to go further. Slow speed was to allow John to take his photos and to reduce film of oil on the windscreen from the car in front of me !

Yeah, great to finally meet everyone and it was a fun day out!

I'm keen to make this a regular thing and I like your suggestion of a Cowan and Southern Higlands run Greg :dance:

Ev who came with me has a stack of nice shots, so I will post the better ones up over the next couple of days.

Thanks for a most enjoyable outing.

The cars were sensational and the people even better.

A group of Car People catching up with just where they were all at with their various car projects over a cup of coffee or two.

Lots of fun, bullshit, and stories. More please!
