Hi all.

In Melbourne ahead of going to Tassie.

Had to visit my cars selling dealership site which is somewhat modernised (or Vandalised) now.

19 Flemington Road, North Melbourne.

Such a shame Southern Motors has been replaced by
this monstrosity, but thats life (or crime) i suppose.

Anyway was worth hangin out under a shady tree up the road until i could snavel a park out front.

Only one old school building is left on this section of the block between #19 and just beside the 7 Eleven Servo where we parked up on the footpath.
Looks to be for sale too, in time i guess will be lost forever.

Jaso.🙂

Make sure you visit the Auto Museum in Launceston. Easy drive from the ferry. Some good cars to look at including the green HQ coupe from the Hobart bridge collapse.

Ha they call it progress, sad in some ways.
You’ll have a great time in Tassie in your bus
(If you haven’t been already)
loads of fun - drivers roads everywhere you go
I can see why the motorbike guys flock there in big groups
I am jealous, I had to drive a hire car with the tetchy Mrs on board
when the roads were egging me on go go quicker
If I could keep up with the logging trucks on those roads that I didn’t know,
I thought I was doing alright. (And keep the cornering smooth so she didn’t notice heehee)
Those buggers get along pretty rapido

Your car looks schmick-o, by the way very nice
Have a nice time away

Luv your work.
Can't say you didn't try to take her home.
p.s. I understand there is another Museum in Tas, where there is an...well....interesting installation at the moment. Might be worth a look?

If it’s the one I went to, all I can say is the actual building is far more interesting than the exhibits. Brilliant architecture, cr@p exhibits.

Are you talking about that poo machine at the Mona museum of old and new art in Hobart?

If that’s art I’ll be fur coated
You may appreciate it, though

I'm talking about a slightly different Mona exhib. Easy to google it.

Thanks all,

Not the first trip across the ditch. Is for Torrie though.
Will be a nice 14 day drive around the Map of Tassie.
