    I love driving this car, it is, so choice ! If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

    At the moment I have been able to get the economy down to a tiny 20.5 Lt/100, oh, and I don't even have to pay for the fuel ! As a hint, 2nd gear is good for about 40 km/h to around 110 km/h where it hits the rev limiter ..........

  2. Er, where do you work dude? A lygon street restaurant?

    I posted in:
    Off Topic Stuff
    A place to discuss topics that are unrelated to bikes or riding.

    is that not the right place for it ??????
  11. As a Moderator, may I suggest that you familiarize yourself with the terms and conditions of this site.

    ALL of the T's & C's, not just those pertaining to the forum that you are assigned.

  12. Hey Doonks, could be something to do with having double the amount of allowed pics per post ;)
  13. yes, sorry - i was in a bit of a rush. I've already removed all but one actual pics and replaced with links.

  16. Look, it's real simple. Whatever mileage we put on, we'll take off.
    We'll drive home backwards.

  17. This joke comes to mind :-k

    10 Characteristics of The Company Car...

    *- Accelerates at a phenomenal rate.

    * - Has a much shorter braking distance than the private

    * - Can take speed humps at twice the speed of private

    * - The battery, radiator water, oil and tires never have
    to be checked.

    * - It can be driven up to 60 miles with the oil warning
    light flashing.

    * - It needs cleaning less often than private cars.

    * - The suspension is reinforced to allow for the weekend
    loads of bricks, concrete slabs and other building

    * - Unusual and alarming engine noises are easily
    eliminated by turning up the radio.

    * - It needs no security system and may be left anywhere,
    unlocked and with the keys in the ignition.

    * - It is especially sand and waterproof for barbeques and
    fishing expeditions on remote beaches.
  18. :eek: Ooooo Aaaaaa I like it \:D/
    Lucky you. I'm jealous. Enjoy !
  19. This was my ride during the Sandown 500 this year.


    One of the benefits of being the Deputy Emergency Controller for the event I s'pose.

    Got to take it home each night as well :grin:

    Now I'm a Holden boy but that thing was interesting to drive on & off the track :shock:

    And I only managed to put 700km on it in 4 days :roll:

    My involvement in motorsport has certainly given me the chance to drive some interesting vehicles on many race tracks around Australia over the years.
