It's on again.

Would be great to see a good turnout of Forum folks.

Footy on the big screen after the cruise - what more could you want?

That car is an incredible bit of engineering. The radiator is behind the diff and the coolant lines run from the core plugs. Everyone said it would not work but Phil has had it on the road for a few years now and drives it regularly with no heating problems. The only problem is his fuel cell is now in the hatch so probably a little hard to use a Hatch Hutch!

But a great example of excellent engineering. The rest of the car is pretty tidy too!

A stupid man would say why not put the fuel tank in front of the engine where that gap is?

Different but why would you. There is heaps of room for the radiator. Just adds more weight overall, cheers Aaron.
