You got it tough, decisions like that. I have to say the double blues are my team but I’d love to see the 215.

A quick update on the entry number for the Nat's.
NSW - 7
Qld - 5
Tas - 1
WA - 4
Vic - 4
SA - 14

Total of 35 with partners a grand total of 66

With Covid restriction now are minimal in SA, we should be almost normal by June.
I did give the crystal balls a rub this morning in the hope I would see the petrol price for June but not luck.

Cheers,
Roger

Not sure Errol, still watching the situation and saving for the fuel bill ( not entered yet) Sbc’s aren’t very economical. 😂

CEVA normally have it there inside 2 weeks - sometimes a week :thumbsup: I have used them many times and when they see what sort of car it is they put it in the shed out of the weather. I booked mine on freight yesterday.

- Tip : If booking online , go through all the motions until it asks for payment , then close the webpage - the next day you should get an email offering a 10% discount if you book within the next 24 hours :ebiggrin:

Laurie Shine on the Torana forum just bought an EK from Melbourne. He said the transport people over east were flat out due to the floods. Was quicker and cheaper to bring it to free by sea……

Entry to this years Nationals is closed and there is 90 entrants and with partners 181.
This is a lot bigger number than we anticipated but great to see the support.

All state are represented except the NT and yes, Robin T is coming.

Sunday's Show and Shine will be challenge get all of these cars into the area but we are up for it.
We may pre-stage the cars by their categories, down the at the football carpark to ensure a smooth setup.

We have some amazing raffle prizes and I'm sure the FB v EK raffle prizes we blow you away.

See you in Nuri.
