Alvin, i think that must have been you at Dougs factory tonight. i was the guy mucking around with the big block cobra up the back. It only occured to me after you left that you were probably the Alvin from on here. Next time i see you i will be sure to introduce myself!

Andy.

Default Slow down on the posts guys!!!!!!!!

Wow ...A guy logs off for a couple of hours and every man and his dog chucks a post in.

OK Where do I start..

Alvin, I received your Application last week. I am now going to decline you membership to the club for being inpatient.
Just kidding. The club had over 40 new members join last fortnight and the membership database has just been updated. Two days ago I posted out a photocopy of last months (June) national magazine for you, that should keep you busy for a while.

Ahmed, love to see you at the next meeting, it's very friendly and casual. Have a drink and a feed and talk $hit (that what we Cobra owners do best). The meeting starts around 08:00 but guys start rolling up just after 07:00.

AC514 - I'm guessing Gino...Is that correct? If so...
I don't have Robnell issues...I care not for that lesser than my own. If it's not Gino, I may have just offended someone I don't know. But hey if you can afford a Robnell you can afford some therapy.

While on the subject of therapy...Mr. Rebel. We do clock the performance of our Cobra via the calendar. (How many trips to the QLD border and back we can do in a day). Take a look at last years Nationals results big boy. Eight of the top ten are Victorian.
And as for milking felines for grog..thats a hell of a lot less disgusting than what you northerners do to small fury animals

Jason, while you were busy playing with photos of *****, did you manage to get some membership forms in the mail for me. Postal address is:

Andy Chirnside
P.O. Box 400
Lilydale, 3140.

Thanks mate,

P.S , when is the next DECA day on.

Andy.

Default I'm sorry Jason

For all the shots I've been having at our Melbouirne cousins.

But, I think you gotta accept some of the blame too. After all, look at those pics of your lil pets you all been putting up here.

Have a good look at that one AC514 put up. Now that looks like a lady I avoided at ya casino last I visited. She was explaining how she only ever had 3 "conflicts" in her whole life. Mental images of her wiping out our Army, Navy and Air Force in one day put the fear of god into me.

Gawwddd....talk about weapons of mass destruction. I think our American cousins should forget searching the Iran and get their backsides into Victoria.

Then we have your pet Puss..ermm cat. Now, that thing looks down right Rabid. Now you know why you cant come any further North than the Queensland Border during one of those lil jaunts you described.

Understand that those tick gates are there for a reason. They protect this pristine state from all the lil critters that infest a lot of the southern Puss...ermm cats.

The last thing we want is for our local pussies to be infested by association with your wildlife.

Anyways, I do hope this explanation explains our position and please accept my apology for past outbursts.


you all take care

Cheers Bryan,

Making my life easier.

I guess Andy could check out the club calendar on the website as well.
We have the next DECA event on the 10th of August.
I'm guessing the big black beast won’t quite be ready to burn up the skidpan.
But that didn't stop him laying a bit of rubber last time out.

Just noticed SVO429 logged on.
What a coincidence I know a Robnell owner in Melbourne with that very same number plate on his Cobra.

I wonder whether this will entice him to make his first post?

How could we forget a guy named Craig! What's the story about your supercharger development? What brand of blower are you starting with? Got any photos? It's not that I'm poaching your LS1 ideas, I just like blowers!!!

Sounds good! I suppose you've seen the photos of the Roush modified Mustangs with the "in manifold" water/air intercoolers. Looks like it all fits in nicely, but it'll be a heck of a job for you to do a custom install. Good luck, it'll be worth the effort!
