  1. Popped up the road for a brew with the wife yesterday and this Ford Falcon GT parked up across the road. Absolute cracker and zero snobbery about it ‘only’ being a 4 door in Australia.

  3. I did an oil change on the Captiva just to get my hands mucky. Felt good. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  4. I know. Sometimes a part of me thinks 2 years is plenty and head back home but another thinks we won't get this chance again so stay on. Only thing I miss is the house and playing with my cars. Can't even just pop home for a bit as I might not get back in now. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  5. Lol I'm just a poor unemployed engineer. Wife's job is going really and looks like getting a promotion so we'll more than likely be here for another 2 years. Time will tell... Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  6. May end up flogging the Escort when we go back and giving the Mini a bit more love. Not that she deserves it the little bitch! Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  7. If we chop em up small enough I'm sure we can squeeze them in somewhere. Celica got sold before we left. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  8. I think we ended up there as that's where the wife lived 20 odd years ago when she was nursing out here. Probably help if we weren't forking out $2000 a month for the house back in the UK. I could always start working I suppose but I don't like talking about that [emoji23] [emoji23] [emoji23] Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  9. Anyway, as penance for rambling here's some old Ford I saw when I took the car for its rego. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  10. No there's nothing shabby about it lol but it's bloody expensive for what you get. Much more value for money further out. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  11. The wife's not too chuffed but she has to be in the office on Monday. Think we're going to give up the Neutral Bay apartment and move up to the Northern Beaches. Bit more of a relaxed lifestyle. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  12. We're coming from clean Queensland to dirty NSW. It's only closed the other way. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  13. Well I'm back down to Sydney tomorrow after a month in the sunshine. Not because we want to but because the bank manager insists! Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  14. @Rally Pack 2000 I've come up to Queensland and they definitely speak different to around Sydney. Much more the Crocodile Dundee stereotypical Aussie accent I think. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk

    Someone was talking to old mutton chops at a Mini show as he took along the one they did. He admitted they did the design work but had a team to do most of the hands on stuff. The buyers were all fictional too as he kept the Mini for himself. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  16. Not even going to get Christmas Day at the beach looking at the weather. Hope it comes down hard to dampen everything down. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  17. Yes we're staying put here. There's been some bad smoke days down here but it's nothing compared to what some people are going through. As you say, devastating for the wildlife too. Mad to think that a lot of these have been started deliberately. What goes through people's minds? Stay safe. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  18. Hope you're staying safe @Rally Pack 2000. Truly terrible times for rural NSW. Have a great Christmas everyone. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  19. I was always a 6R4 fan having had a couple of MG Metros as my first cars. That n/a v6 growl was the best group B noise. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  20. Yes I can see why people's backs would get up. Funnily enough some of the worst are ex-pats. We've been here 6 months now and I think she's finally starting to win people over now they can see results from things being implemented. We've been up to Gosford this morning where she had a meeting and they were all talking about the fires. The problem we have around our way at home right now is flooding so if you need any water I know where there's some going spare. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  21. Business practices. I'll not say which company it is but when she was asked to come out here she knew there'd be a few challenges but don't think she realised how many and how much resistance there'd be. They don't seem to see she's out here to help the business get on a sure footing, protect it and grow from there. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  22. Can't believe the prices of old British stuff. Seen a lovely Rover P6 V8 for $6k in a fetching poo brown. There's an option of another 2 years but think the wife will be burnt out and had enough by then even though she's always loved Australia and lived here before in her 20's. She's finding Aussies aren't the easiest to re-educate. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  23. 2 year visa so here for a while. Wife's job has brought us out here so I'm doing the house husband thing. We're in an apartment so as much as I'd love to get an old motor it doesn't make sense to. We only need the 1 car if I'm not working. The bad thing is the longer I'm away from my Escort the more I think about selling it when I get back. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  24. So you should you peasant. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
  25. Yes we have a great view of the bridge but the other week was bad with the smoke. Took a few days before it cleared up. Didn't really smell smokey though. Sent from my CLT-L09 using Tapatalk
