Nah, I can't think why in their right mind would put themselves in such discomfort by building a rough riding, deafening, undriveable mongrel car.

Now, if it was a deafening SUPERCHARGER..... then I might know who you're talking about

I must come and visit the double decaf, soy latte, skinnychino set in Melbourne soon. Must one book an appointment with their Personal Image Technician (hairdresser) before being sighted in Lygon Street?

You know what they say craig, if you cant handle the heat, get out of the kitchen! Us Victorians are pretty thick skinned. By the way, too many ricers in Lygon St!

An untanned Victorian midget standing on the start line at Queensland raceway masterbating into a empty stubby.

Did I get it right?

Jason, you must have me mistaken for someone with an interest in performance.

Consider - your car......

has better flowing cylinder heads than mine,
more radical differential gearing than mine,
more throttle bodies than mine,
more stripes than mine,
has spun out of control on a racetrack more than mine,
more transmission gears than mine,
and more compression than mine.

See, I need the supercharger to keep up!

Andy - if a few fibreglass spoilers and things impress the ricers, imagine what they'd think of a full fibreglass Cobra body...... In my best Lebanese voice "Fully SIIIIIIIK, maaaate"

Couldn't be a Victoria.

If in QLD he wouldn't be untanned he'd be burnt to a crisp.
No midgets here, we're all 6 foot and full of muscle.
Why go to QLD raceway when we have Philip Island, Calder, Sandown, and Winton.
And he wouldn't have an empty stubby cause your beer tastes like cat piss.

Hey,

Good to see you are all back and in good form.

Just arrived back in sunny Mt. Gambier after attending a working meeting in Melbourne and then spending four days on the car.

Decided to run the car in Gel coat for a while. Will put some photos on shortly.

Better get Jason to do that. They get on that way.

Thanks Jason for doing that - is the tally now 3 Big Macs and 2 fries.

Hey I can now say ..'would you like a Salad with your order?'

The serious look on my face was just after being asked can I see over the air cleaner.

I just noticed your rating on that bright aluminium Kirkham body Jason. Hell its bright.

Cheers guys. MUst go I have an early start tomorrow Sunday.

Bernie

A stubby is a little bottle of beer the Queenslanders drink, they can then tell their mates they had six bottles last night.

XXXX or FourX is the brand of their beer. Its named XXXX as they cannot spell up there.

In Victoria we drink the big bottles

You know the Civil War you guys had

Well we are on the edge of starting one over here

I am out of here before it starts

You can see who works whilst at work Just look at the number of posts besides some names and the time they have been on clubcobra.

Hell I would love a job like theirs.

I am really out of here now - see you Southernfriedcj

The Queenslanders are heading this way with some very heavy artillery

Cheers all

Not everything is bigger in the USA.

Enough beer to give even Homer Simpson a headache.

Great to work there

I must go and have a little look around

I spotted you looking at that bright aluminium body when I was looking at the thread there.

Must go

Cheers
