Cheers, a few nice cars there!







Now this thing below, isn’t that an old Toyota hemi engine??

that's Rod Hadfield's (former Castlemaine Rod Shop owner) if I'm not mistaken
i remember the build up in either budget build ups or some other magazine about 15-  20yrs ago probably

i didnt bother taking the camera out at all this time  oh well. 
thanks again guys who made the effort to enter and come along, big effort by Chris and Jeremy for coming up from Tasmania. One day i want to return the favour and bring the wagon or escort down. 
Also big effort from Jaymie for coming from SA for the event. Puts the vic boys who didnt enter to shame *cough* [mention=27]SPArKy_Dave[/mention] *cough*  
I say it every year, but lets hope next year we can make it bigger and better. im looking forward to having 2 cars there next year  
Bring the wagon so you can do 110km/h on the highways - ours are all single lane each way so if you sit at 90/95km/h in the Escort, you'll get a lot of mad people behind you

But more than happy to travel up, looking forward to next year. As always I enjoyed the day. Back on the boat now heading back to the less stressful traffic in Tassie.

haha give me a 3.9 diff and ill be happy to do the 100km/h 110km/h might still be a little bit of a squeeze for cruising :P

What happened to the old 2.77 from the wagon? May have to have it shortened a touch

I enjoyed my first AFD; nice to put some faces to names, great to meet you all, fantastic experience!

....

Only problem was, I got sunburned to all fuck. Goddamn ginger genes. :angry:

Unfortunately, @SPArKy_Dave, was working at his Factory all day (and all night) Sunday with his father, another Dave, and @2redrovers,
who was working his magic onsite - hand fabricating lower quarter panels. :)
Almost as good as AFD!

edit -
(possibly even better than) :P
