Hey guys

I am doing a cruise run to the central mangrove dam. This cruise was really sucessful earlier this year with the vn ss club and the weather is heating up again so I am going to do another run.

The date is Sunday 11th of November
9-10am meet for a 10:30 leave time

directions as following : http://goo.gl/maps/SoZtO

Meet at thornleigh mcdonalds 9am - 10am for a 10:30am leave
Drive along the old pacific highway to cowan for a quick stop at pie in the sky "around 11:15am"
Drive towards the central coast along the old pacific highway turn right towards the australian reptile park, turn back onto petes ridge rd and george downs drive and then follow all the way to the dam. The directions are exactly the same as last year.
Arrive at the dam "around 12-1" for BBQ and a beer

This cruise is a great run with most of the roads heading up being nice and windy with some good straights and some amazing scenery on the way up and also when we get to the dam.

I would like people to leave their input as to which day you guys would rather do this run, I am hoping to get some really good numbers for this cruise. I had broadie "STRICK" do this run with the VN SS club last time and we all had a great day out

People attending so far

Me "GTS-213"
5 X people from the vn ss club

Cheers Matt

I like that white VN SS on the end, favourite one of the VN. I had a red one back in the day, hated that colour

Yeah the atlus white ss's are rare and that particular one is the cleanest example I have come across and it is a 5 speed manual with the power pack option. It actually won car of the day at all holden day from pacmaker headers. The atlus grey one with NOT-304 plates was my old car before I sold it to one of the guys in the club "still kick myself to this day for selling that car, I miss that thing soo much"

Sounds like a good run never been out to the dam. I drive a SS factory less the wheels and door badges both of which are in the garage. Big fan of the VN SS see then around here and there, far and few between just the ways it should be.

For anybody who is keen from the central coast/newcastle there will be a second meeting point at pie in the sky which is just off the old pacific highway at cowan, I am just hoping the weather holds out but if it is smashing down with rain I will put a post up posponing it till next sunday, But at the moment it is all set for sunday unless otherwise instructed.

If you need anymore info feel free to PM me a message and I will send you my mobile number to organise it further
