    Travel Advice - Southern Spain

    Hi FG, It's been a while since I last posted...but, I'll be travelling through southern Spain come late September/early October. Seeing as there are quite a few European FGers, I thought I'd reach out. My current plan is a driving route from Valencia to Seville, with quite a few stops along...

    Jerusalem travel tips

    Hi FG, I've unexpectedly had all of my meetings cancelled tomorrow, so I have a day free in Israel. So in 9 hours from time of posting, I'm going to visit Jerusalem. Apart from the plethora of one day travel guides, do any FG denizens have some top tips to see and do?

    Posting Image Attachment

    When using the inbuilt image uploader and hosting locally on the forums, the uploaded images appear as a box of attachments at the end of the post; what am I doing for this to appear? Can I make it stop doing this and simply attach the images as embeds in the post without them being repeated at...

    Vietnam Suggestions

    Hi FG, I'm set to take a short (2 week) vacation to Vietnam very soon. I'm looking to accomplish Ho Chi Minh to Hanoi in that time, but it won't be on a bike. I'll be taking trains up the coast. I'm hoping that the FG hive mind would have some great suggestions for things to see/avoid. My only...

    Ferrari Sergio

    Another special edition from Ferrari. I'm really not sure if I like - it's very jarring on first viewing, but there are features and throwbacks that may grow on me. Motor Authority Telegraph

    Recommend me a new satchel bag

    It seems I'm starting to bring work home now instead of staying stupid hours at the office. I'll need a satchel-type bag to cart stuff around in. The ones I used for university are just too big (Crumpler Dreadful Embarrassment & Barney Rustle Blanket). I'd also prefer to have something that...

    No 56k: 2014 Autobella (Melbourne Italian Auto Festival) Image dump with comments

    I went to Autobella, a Fiat Club organised Italian Automobile Festival in Como Park today. It had a really great turn out and filled the small park really quickly with some rather cool vintage models as well as some newer, shinier metal. The morning was really brilliant, especially as some of...

    Toyota to shut down Australian manufacturing

    This looks to be the final death knell for automotive manufacturing in Australia. I guess there is a silver lining to not getting an offer from these guys after all.

    Ownership Verified: My 2003 Alfa Romeo 147 GTA

    May I present my second Alfa Romeo. It's a 2003 147 GTA. It's red with black leather interior, a six speed transmission and 17" wheels. It's in fairly good condition with just over 81,000k on the odometer and a minor ding in the passenger door. Coming from my last Alfa Romeo, it was suggested...

    Overheard in the office

    Been hearing some pretty amusing (well, I think so) quote around the office. I'm sure we've all got a pretty quippy lines we've overheard to share. "He used to be in a plutonium/uranium mining play, but he was Fukushimaed...utterly Fukushimaed."

    Saab Turbo Aero?

    I spotted this Saab 900 Turbo? Aero? thing. I love it. Can anyone identify exactly what it is so I may, in future, possibly, acquire one?

    Melbourne Meetup Mk. V

    It's been a very long time between drinks since the last Melbourne Meetup, or any Australian meetup, for that matter. I think it's time for one to happen and it should be on the weekend of the 21st of December, a Saturday. Let's use this thread to organise the event and keep an RSVP register...

    Epic drive preparation advice

    Epic is such an over used cliche these days, but I hope that this edges into the lower stratum of the definition. I'll be driving from Sydney to Melbourne, with a few detours, in one day. ~900+ kilometres with an estimated time of 9.5 hours. I think that's reaching the upper limits of a...
