Me and Unknownspeedster were thinking of having a meet/cruise next Saturday on the 12th. We're going to meet at about 12PM (Noon) at the car park near the end of War Memorial Drive, and from there on going into the hills up to Corkscrew Road, which is part of the Classic Adelaide.

So who else is up for it?

Going:

Dsemaj - 1985 Nissan Bluebird
Unknownspeedster - 2007 Mini Cooper S

Maybe:

Olie - 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 8 MR
?Tone - Holden TS Astra

Not sure if I can make that date - Car's also going in for a cambelt change/service soon too so I'm going to be significantly lighter in the pocket!

If it's any help I have the road books for classic adelaide and could offer route suggestions.

I'll have a quick look at the road books tonight and see what I can come up with. Saturday's don't really suit me sadly - but I'm happy to offer route suggestions for you guys :)

Ah. Could be tricky. Don't think I can make it, sorry.

It's probably for the best. You don't want some shitty TS Astra tagging along now, do you? :p

well, we are considering moving the cruise to another date, the only restraint is it has to be a Saturday, so yets work something out to involve the most possible members.
