Hi all
As promised FYI:
There is big cruise sat 25th from Newcastle to harry's cafe de wheels Liverpool.
It's on the last Saturday of every month from 5:30 till late. Last month they had 1000 cars turn up including all types of sic rides and heaps of hsv's.
So come along for a run and a pie bring the family and some chairs/blankets as last month they screened a movie and many families came out.

I will be meeting at the F3 twin service stations (South bound) just past the toukley exit at 3pm and leaving at approx 3:30pm to get down there by 5:30pm to get a gd spot!!
We are meeting other clubs at the servo so just look for the hsv's.
If anyone is keen just leave a comment. Ill be in the black HSV WM grange.
Cheers Charlie

I am keen.
Next one is on Sat 28th Feb. Learnt my lesson again this last time, need to arrive between 6-7 at the latest otherwise you spend an hour trying to get in and have to park in the back unlit car park. Did follow a GenF GTS in though and exchanged compliments with a E1 Senator (SEN07R) as we crossed paths.

This is true. Noticed on the weekend even the ford GT club (old school GT's) were In The back car park. They normally have the best spot in the house.

Last time i went i got there at about 4 30/ 5. Decent spots still avaliable, plus can pull up a chair, watch all the cars come in and soak up the atmosphere

Ok well lets get some numbers who wants to go Sat 28th Feb meet there at 4pm.
(Must be on time, must not pull out so we reserve enough spots)

We'll show em the quality of HSV's we have on here....might also get a few new members to the forum.

So far we have 5 in total, who else is interested?

I've decided I'll get down their earlier in the day secure a decent spot for us all and then everyone else can turn up around 3:30-4pm, no later than 4pm though otherwise it will be very hard to keep spots reserved for people.

Car is washed, clayed, waxed, polished and locked in the garage. Hopefully it stays that way until Saturday.

Mine got snow washed yesterday, tyres sprayed and had the ROS out touching up some marks on the sill under the drivers door but it's done 250km since and with the expected rain this week, I'm out in it multiple times daily, so it's getting a full hand wash next Saturday. I only clayed and sealed mine a month ago.

Are you just after a wash or do you want the full blown detail?

I always take buckets and microfibre wash cloths, pH neutral wash and drying sheets in the car to do it my way when I arrive at my destination

I've never paid anyone to do mine. I've always done it myself. Hopefully someone close by car recommend someone. Girls I work with get their cars hand washed about 5 minute drive away from Harry's (Hoxton Park Road) but I've never looked at their results.

Ok so going to try and get 1 of these sections in the red area for us.....if you get there any earlier park in here and hold some spots. Good idea to bring some out door chairs works well for reserving spots.

It was a really good weekend and very much enjoyed meeting everyone. The photos look good so I hope you guys like them.

The corvette Z06 is an animal of a car the VF GTS and it are so evenly matched in roll racing.
We raced twice on the way up from 100km/h-200km/h I got the jump on him each time but he stuck right next to my door the entire way just slipping back the slightest on gear changes.

On the way back home we did a 60km/h to 250 race again the GTS gets the jump and stays out in front but he is right there and not gaining of falling back.

So power to weight ratio for both cars must be very evenly matched.

The day at Harry's was really good we got there around 2pm it really started getting busy by 3pm, loads of nice cars and plenty of food choices.

All in all it was a really good day and I am glad we got the opportunity to meet up we should certainly meet up more often....maybe even head out for some cruising.

Well that was my first bad experience at Harry's!!!
Got there just before 4:30pm and parked between 2 maloo's that were illegally parked across about 6 spots. Then some guy comes up to the window and has a go at me for parking there to which I explain its a public car park and I can park wherever I want. He then tells me between abuse that I shouldn't leave my car buy itself as he and his mates might do something to it. So I locked the car, walked over to Harry's and pointed the dipshit out to the first police officer I came across. Best part was he then got more agitated and let slip in front of the cop what he had previously said to me about damaging my car. The nice police officer then pointed out to him that he probably shouldn't threaten people especially in front of him and then took his details and made it clear if anything happened to my car he and his mates would be up for the damage bill. Needless to say 1 1/2hrs passed came back and car was fine. At 6pm when it was well and truly busy, they were still holding 6 spots and only had 3 cars there. And this was right up the front just about where GEN-F, voodoo and I had parked back a few months ago. Apparently they now own the car park at the end of every month and no one else can park there. People like that ruin good things.
