As i have mentioned elsewhere.... whomever once thought "I know, let's hold a Nationals event for a convertible model car smack bang in the middle of Winter- heck let's make the open season weekend for the snow" has a lot to answer for................

That being said, I too the prince so i was warmer than most. Awesome turnout - 50 roadsters attended the concourse today on the foreshore. i saw W.A., Tas, and QLD plates so to those who drove literally thousands of kms, kudos to you.

There's a drive tomorrow and awards dinner tomorrow night, so hope it all goes well for them.

Here's some quick pics.... once I have defrosted my fingers may work a little faster.......

Enjoy

Only a few went roofless. These guys do all our rallies, drives etc without a roof. They also sail, so come dressed in full wet weather sailing gear complete with a different themed hat each time. :wink: ohh.. driver is about 6 foot tall, passenger is 6 ft 7"...
The silver car was bought a week ago- he also has one that has been a work in progress for years
Image
Apparently never too early for a beer......
Image
Image
I at least was in a sedan and the heater in the Prince is sensational...she would have been frozen taking pics
Image
Weather wasn't kind to some pics.....
Image
Who needs a soft focus filter when you have rain.... :wink:

Dave's ride

Image
Seriously deep wheels....
Image

Image
Image
A couple Zeds came along......

We get bugged all the time here with either "is than an MG?" or " poor mans MG" or "MG's walk all over these"......
The red and white striped one above used to have rego NOTAMG, and here's another (ohh.... and it does 8) )
Image
The Duggan's are synonamous with tarmac rallies. He has won his class in Targa Tasmania, not mention a heap of others.... awesome he could make it.
Image
Image
They had an aerial photographer arranged, so everyone stood by their cars while he nabbed a few pics- can't wait to see the results.
Image

Image
flared guards......
Image
The only 370z roadster..... it started raingin 3 times, and whilst the rest were unfolding rooves, clipping them in, Chris would flick a switch- here he's using the door handle to close the roof

Cheers,

Wow, good turn out and great shots. Was SRL-003 there at all? Its a yellow race car from the states. As for the weather, its like our Solvang meet here. We never know what the weather is going to do at the end of April. Its been good every year I have gone, however the day before has been iffy a few times.

Great pictures. Thanks for posting.

Will

Hi Will,

Nope it wasn't there- we had two fly yellow ones, one with an SR20DET in it, but not the car you are referring to.
The afternoon saw it clear up- by then i left...

Thanks to Dave- at least someone took a shot of my car...!!!
