Thanks Mamod, didn't realise Easter... scratch that date then.

How about the following weekend, Sat 7 April?

New car is in to replace the Renault RS265 that was unfortunately bent on the M1 to Newcastle.

Mechanic is really pushing the engine builder. Hopefully,...................................... hopefully the bare engine is together this week with ancillaries going on next week.

So May is now looking strong for a drive even if I need to use the new car rather than the 6'er. Let me know what dates we should pencil in..................... very lightly. The M140i is a rocket, an absolute rocket.

HI Josh,

Early May better for me as I have a work trip to Munich in the second half (All three important car museums too!).

The question was "does the car have A/C". Now it is getting to "does the car have heating"? :wink:

Shall we pencil May 12 into the Calendar now? I need to check with Rosie but otherwise. Sounds like a decent enough date.

Pardon the observation, but this thread that was started in November of last year for a January 2018 get-together has now moved all the way to mid-May? I'm wondering if it will happen before NEXT January rolls around. :lol: I hope you guys get it done soon. Turning on to winter down there, isn't it?

Hi Toby - I can't do Sun 13 May unfortunately. How late in May can you stretch before you head off?

Ken - your observation is sound. We've been trying to lock in a date with Josh's new motor since July 2014. Plenty more winters to come & go before we give up hope. These threads are just keepin the dream alive.

Yep, getting that engine right has been a saga for shore. Once we start back up hopefully we can get 2 to 4 drives in a year.

Auto brunch from 8am to 11am this Sunday if anyone is interested. Always a good turn out of interesting cars...

Would be good to get a couple of Sixers there...

My 633's new engine is close. The bare engine is back together and ancillaries are going on as we speak. It will not be ready for a May drive but as soon as it is, i'll be driving no matter what so will invite all along.

I'm still good for a late May drive in my M140i. It's a weapon and rockets along. I need to meet Pip Barker to pick up my E3 2 door race engine May 19 so May 26 is the only free Saturday for me.

I'm putting on the Hello Koalas Cars & Coffee in Port Macquarie on June 10 (for my client Hello Koalas Sculpture Trail. It's part of the Hello Koalas Festival hellokoalas.com/festival). I would love to have a school of sharks there to kick off event. Let me know what you think! Especially the mid-north coast/newcastle crew...) . check out hellokoalas.com/festival - would have put an image up but it says boards quota has been reached?

I'm getting close with the S38B38.

It's back together now and being wired with the Megasquirt PRO III on Monday.

Ready for a drive in my M140i late May or June.
