Just FYI regarding Sat 6th... The Black Saturday Remembrance cruise is on. Lilydale to Healesville. It was awesome last year, we're thinking of going again.

We could hook onto that?

Personally I prefer to go to the Longwarry event, seems to have more going on. Gotta love a swap meet and I like the sound of having the 3 course meal and live music later in the evening. I also prefer to get on a long freeway and just cruise. No power in my car obviously :)

I can do the 6th but it'll have to be daytime for me too. Mick is gonna come too if it's daytime. I'm not bringing a Torrie - the red LH is parked in tight by another few cars so I'll just hitch a ride or bring another car

Yeah I'm coming. Got my cousin's birthday that evening that I have to go to in Berwick so will probably have to leave to go to that around 7. Keen as if it's afternoon.



Is Luke's Torana in any condition to bring Heath?

It isn't really accessible at the moment unfortunately. But everyone on this forum loves my bizarre other vehicles don't they? hahaha

Wow, this has grown legs - good stuff! :)

 

I think we should do our own thing....meet up at say 12ish, cruise about somewhere, grab a burger or whatever and then hook onto the Black Saturday cruise (starts in Lilydale). There are some pretty damn impressive cars that get along to this and given we aren't all Torana's, I reckon we'd look pretty good with Heaths wagoooooon and Waynos stang.

 

From Lilydale, can either do the cruise to Healesville or blow that and head back in the Melbourne direction...


To be honest, I don't care either way. I'm happy to drive wherever :)

 

Thoughts or a better suggestion?

I like it, just like I really like burgers.
12:00 mid day, at Manhattan Hotel car park for a meet and greet, then off for my burger!
Any good burger places up around Olinda, Monbulk, Emerald way?

All just suggestions and to encourage input

Water pump is done and i'll be taking the car out for a test drive this afternoon.

 

Happy to go on a cruise but don't want to be travelling from Lilydale to Healesville, as Healesville's a fair trip back for me. This will be the longest trip this cars been on since I've had it.

 

I did want to take my Mustang to a mechanic on Saturday morning in Dandenong who specializes in tuning these old engines. I'll try and book it in about 10ish.

 

Unfortunately there just aint much on in the way of car events this weekend. Hopefully someone can find something we can do preferably back towards town.

Sounds good.

 

Lock in 12.00 noon on Saturday at Manhatten Hotel carpark.

 

Let's have a think about a good place to grab a burger once we get moving....and the rest of it is up for negotiation also.

Don't stress Wayne, if we go to Lillydale, and some want to continue to Healsville I will travel back with you. To be honest the distance between the two is not that far, and we can come back through Christmas Hills and Diamond Creek. Not a bad round trip at all

See you all Saturday.

I suggest we all let Daz know you is coming so that we know who and how many to wait for.

Cheers

Sounds good. I'll try and be there at 12 noon and get the car in at the mechanics at 10am. If I'm running late i'll let Grant or Daz know but it isn't far from the Manhatten.

 

BTW the test drive went well with no leaks so its a goer.

Righto.

 

So, plan is to meet at the Manhattan hotel carpark at 12 noon (cnr of Canterbury Rd and Heatherdale Rd Ringwood).

Depart at 12.15ish and cruise to Sally's Big Ass Burgers in Upper Beaconsfield for lunch.  (http://www.sallysbigassburgers.com.au/)

 

Get out of there at say 2ish and either head in the Lilydale direction for the start of the Black Saturday cruise or head in an alternate direction if everyone wants.  We can talk it over whilst gawking at Sally's big ass  :lol:

 

I'm hungry already. Damn.

I have a seat cover with me, so please add a plus one for me

Looking forward to the cruise! I think my engine is still breaking down under power, but will be fine for cruising, and keeping up with a Ford ;)

Sorry guys, we've committed to the Black Saturday cruise. With 3 kids in tow, the idea of trying to do both makes me shudder!!! Enjoy the burgers! Wayne - keep us posted how the tune goes - I'm looking around myself at the moment for gun old school carby tuners.
