Re: A Pair Of 6ers In Canberra

I like that brown car. The owner is a top bloke. The owner of the other car though, he has some expletive tattooed on his forehead.

I echo Paul's comments. Shame about the lout in the Superlite who blocked us in. Nice colour though. I followed Stu back to Mona Vale and pulled up along side him at the lights. These guys on motorbikes had been ogling his car and I heard one ask the other "do you think it's real or a replica?" Stu ...

Great, see everyone there! The reservation is for 6 but they should be flexible if more turn up.

Table manners? I assume you mean I'm supposed to use cutlery? I've only recently graduated from eating out of the trough

Breakfastfest at Church Point, 10:30 4th July 2015

Paul, StuM5 and I are meeting for breakfast at The Waterfront Cafe at Church Point, 10:30am on July 4th and I'd like to open an invitation for anyone else who's keen to catch of for a feed and a chat to come along too. Details of the cafe are here: http://www.waterfrontstore.com.au . It's also known...

This is looking fantastic Josh!

I have to ask though - what's the picnic blanket for? Do you plan on some cheese and wine should you have an off mid-race?

There are some brilliant roads around Sydney and they're generally not overly policed but there's almost always traffic, so it was great to get out on the ACT roads today with bugger all traffic and see bits of the ACT I haven't seen in years. And with everything so close too.

My dim dash lights

So, some background... For years, I've had a bit of a gremlin with my car not charging properly. My mechanic would had the alternator to his auto electrician, who'd rebuild it, it would get re-fitted, and I'd find it wouldn't put out the right voltage. I don't drive the car so much now as I have a c...

Oops, I forgot about this one. I was hesitant to commit because I've had work functions the last two Friday nights and couldn't be sure what state I'd be in come Saturday morning.

Me too. My home computers and iPhone (over wifi) can't access the site (server not found error), but works ok over Telstra 3G. Seems to indicate an issue with my ISP - iiNet.

Looks like the iPhone is too clever for itself and has picked up the fact the photo was originally rotated (from the EXIF data) and has "corrected it"

Dave I just had a look at your proposed route. I'm not sure if you saw Paul's earlier post but we're actually planning on doing a loop through Broke etc prior to lunch. I'm not sure there'll be much interest in doing it again.

Above where you have your destinations there's a button that looks like a chain (you'll see 'get directions', 'my places', and a printer); click on it and you'll see options for the URL of the route.

Who's coming in your group of cars? It'll be good to see some extra 6ers if that's the plan.

So they did make a mirror block off plate for the left side? Any chance you have a photo showing it? Or even better, a spare one I could buy? I've been searching all over and it's very very NLA from the dealer! Would a blank plate for the LHS be any use to you in the US? and no I couldn't find a ph...

That's very much like Serco's car right down to the seatbelts and bonnet hinges, so I don't think it's a special model as such, more likely just a very early one.

I also meant to ask: did you look at the service records to confirm it was Australian delivered? That's the first 87 car I've seen here and I wasn't aware that BMW imported 6ers that year. From memory they brought them in around 77/78, 81, 86 and 88.

It is indeed a good idea! I'd do it clockwise because every other time I've been through Paynes Crossing has been from north to south.
