    Also from the ACT here.
    Poked my head around the HSV open day at Slaven's a month or so ago. It's usually the same crowd there, so nothing too new to see.
    A good time to catch up with a fellow hillclimb-er.

    Also had a look at the Torana Nationals, as I know a few owners. A good variety of restored, as factory and custom build examples.

    I generally try to get to the cars and coffee things, but something usually pops up. Haven't made it to one yet.
    My Clubsport is currently on stands as I'm putting a trutrac, rip shift and new cat back on.
    Should be well and truly done by then, so I'll keep you posted.

    Nothing new to buy so makes things hard

    The Cars N Coffee run by Shannons are usually pretty good with a wide range of cars on display. Summer at the Old Bus Depot in Kingston and out at EPIC otherwise.

    Anyone make it today?
    I was ready to go, went down to the garage to grab some stuff at 7am and found out 3 pieces of shit had broken into my garage. Luckily dash cam caught all their faces and they are known to the police. Unfortunately spent all day at home helping the police and reinforcing my garage door.

    Did you make it to Summernats? I enjoyed the amazing cars and trade stands. The rest, I think it has completely lost its mojo=boring.

    Summernats organisers decided to squeeze the local car clubs for cash this year. In previous years, Sunday was Club Day and local members, along with their guests, got invited to Summernats for free to help bolster the numbers for the traditionally-quiet last day of the festival. This year, organisers asked members to pay $80 per person/car (admittedly with a few extra privileges such as cruising) or, after some backlash, offered a reduced "free" offering that only included the driver.

    Blatant cash grab in my opinion considering what the local club scene has done for that festival over its 30+ year run.

    Participation by the best cars is everything. The cars are everything I love, but the Summernats, to me is oversanitised and dull now. Some reflection on the best of the past and how to move forward is needed. The "taken for granted factor" such as the treatment of locals/local clubs is very bad. Having been to USA car shows Summernats has heaps and heaps to learn.
