There is a lot of good stuff in my back yard I didn’t know about Neil. Thanks for sharing. That LHD HR got to all Holden day the other year. I didn’t know about the Goolwa museum.

Thanks guys we did have a great day and both of the museums really are worth a look.

Here you go Brett, the weather held off for long enough for me to get a bit of lipstick on Frank and then his bra back on (he thought he was getting a bit saggy 🀣🀣) I hope Barney enjoys the photo.

I'm a little bit suprised but Barney gave a little wriggle when he saw that. Frank looks very shiny.πŸ˜€

Well I arrived home on Saturday after the long road trip home, I didn't post any photos of the nationals show and shine because most of them have already been posted by others.
The cars at the show and shine were absolutely great, it was great to see so many like minded enthusiasts with great cars of all styles and mods.
Especially great to meet Clay after all the chats on the Forum, Roger for donating the fuel tanks surround and Stephen for pulling up in Adelaide to help us when we were lost, cheers guys.
I had a great time, the road trip was great coming over I really only had an issues with wipers twice, going home as Blacky has said I had a tyre go on me and my temp gauge was playing games otherwise I am really happy that Frank was able to handle the 5000 odd Ks that we completed with minimum issues.

Was great to meet you and Robyn and check out Frank Neil. Could have done with more time and now we are back at work. Next year.

Car has well and truly proven itself and you should be confident taking it anywhere now.
