Well,
I thought i might update the news as it's been a while!

What can i say.. 2011.. what a year.
Plenty of ups and downs, Definitely for me personally - I'll be happy to see the back of '11!
I know many people have gone through some tough times with this crazy weather and other problems that face us, But you know...
These cars bring us together and Toranafest 2011 was one i will never forget.
I had an absolute blast with a great group of friends (And i do mean FRIENDS), I got so see some amazing cars and generally had a top weekend away. I really couldnt ask for anything more!
I Know many others also thoroughly enjoyed the Toranafest atmosphere, and this is an event NOT to miss in any year!!

The GMH-T Sydney Drag day was organised and Held by Rob (rob350Hatch) and he did an amazing job getting such a top quality turn out of cars. I was really sorry to see so many breakages as the day was extremely hot (Summer arrived early and then buggered off!), the track was super sticky and all in all i think we all had fun! (Expensive fun for some including myself who killed the gearbox! OUCH!!)

I know there have been countless cruises including the wonderful maroondah dam run in VIC that we read about, and of course heaps of other events that really allow us to enjoy our cars.

Summernats 25th Anniversary is this January, to all those who are going to attend, Stay safe and have a blast!

And to wrap up my ramblings, I hope everyone has had a great Christmas, and are looking forward to New Years,
Stay safe, Enjoy yourselves, and see you in 2012!

Had some bad stuff happen so far, lost family members on both sides, personal things etc. But its funny how they only stay in your head until you actually think how great the rest of the year has been apart from those moments e.g. got engaged, renovating the house, buying pets, new car etc etc..

Its halfway through and its been and up and down year, but coming up I see drag racing, toranafest and 6 and a bit weeks in the US! WOOO!

I've had a ripper 2012!!!! Wish it would keep going!

Got engaged, Won my Baseball Grand Final, had an awesome overseas Holiday, got a big promotion at work, watched my swannies win the GF at the MCG, My little sister finally got her Liver Transplant (After 19 years of waiting!) and is healthier than she has ever been, Got a new car and life is just really kicking ass at the moment! 2012 has been bloody good to me! Lets hope 2013 can be even better!

Hawk, it's tough being young, but keep looking for opportunities, and don't let the bastards get you down. Hope you have a dramatically improved 2013.

It's part luck, and part being in the right place at the right time. You can't influence luck, so get out there in as many places as you can.
