hey realy kool Daz

We arnt racing at the drags its just a display at interval time up and down the drag strip, more a madmax chase, just for the fun of it.

Keep in touch as it gets closer, will be a great event and dont forget all proceeds are for charity.

The event is for free and free camping too, so all you need is fuel and food, its not how big it is its just fans getting together.

We are also doing a display in the main street on the sat morning before the show which i am getting a permit for, as i wish to close a road off
between the medium strip, which atuobarn is one side and the model shop the other, they are sponsoring the display even though we will only
be there just under an hour.
Also... The model shop has offered their front window for a display of memrobelia for a week or two before hand.

well this event is still going ahead, so far a few cars are turning up.

Brad (gasoline), Troy (maxvan) which is now running a V8 and will have new paintjob also, Daz and his big bopper from sydney, and maybe Pat (cob115) from adelaide. and my car will be on the road by then. And maybe Maddan from Qld will be turning up also, but its a fair way for him to come.

Dale Bench & Kim Noyce are coming also.

Troy is making some signs for the auction and display on the day, and im putting together a statue post apopolyptic style complete with shoulder pads,
which i got from Karol when i was at the road warrior event.

while at the road warrior event i got a copy of the loaded warrior which we will be playing on the sat night, its a great dvd and goes for 15 mins and is a remake
of the road warrior but based on bikes & beer, very funny and well done. It had been the guys life dream to make this and when i asked about it on the sat night
he couldnt get over someone from australia asking about it and he gave me a few copys.

Also we are hoping a few bikes will be also coming from the z1000 club too. And Aussie Muscle may be bringing his model collection for display.

There will also be pics from the california event and a video, and Kaz and i will be wearing our costumes we wore there too.

The main day is the saturday but fri all are welcome to arrive as weil be showing madmax1 the fri night at the racecourse. And dont forget this is a charity event...

Cheers Al

Boys,
Gearing up for the bairnsdale motor expo.
Im having the whole exhaust dumped and a new twin set made with hotdogs and a set of berkley deep throat mufflers.
Once the coupe is ready to go, I will be driving it there full noise.
Hopefully I make it there with no "canary" stuck to the windscreen.

I wont have the siren hooked up by then unfortunately.
Im still undecided if I will go down to melbourne the night before and depart from there, or
take the trip up and over the mountain to Bairnsdale.

It will all depend on the temperature forecast for that weekend. As we all know, Fords don't like heat. :oops:

Everybody else on track for that weekend?
Kick her in the guts Barry !

Yep.
Plan is to head down on the Friday to be time for the movie (I think it's a 10 hr drive) then head back on the Sunday sometime around mid-day.

Are there any posters for the event? I can try to get it advertised with the clubs if there are.

Heck!
Thats some wild looking buggy!

Just a brief update: I (and my Big Bopper) may not make the expo due to very unexpected medical issues.
Should I be able to make it, I'll post on here closer to the actual event.
