Group A Gathering. Still on, 17th march! 10 am. Mon, 21 February 2005 22:36 Go to next message
10am, Regatta Point in the carpark behind the globe, closest to the bridge.



Original Post


The time is coming to have a Group A Gathering somewhere in Canberra. Interstate visitors of course will be welcome!

I suggest we meet somewhere take some photos then just cruise around for a bit.

Any good ideas for location date time etc?

Of course all cars and drivers are welcome to come...

edit: Set date in title.

Count me in.

I'd suggest meeting at Parliament House, nice central location for everyone. There are plenty of cool places around the lake to take photos.

Weekends are good for me, I'm ok for whenever as long as we plan ahead.

Guys,
If you could please note down the Group A#, Condition, Colour and few other details about the group A cars, that would be superb. Just to add to the Group A registry. Some pictures also would be great if possible, can email them to me at chewy7@gmail.com if someone does take some.

Thanks a lot.

Absoloutely - I propose Sunday the 3rd of April.

Gives us enough time to organise and also for me to break in the new engine... (or someone else to do for me Smile )

I've seen it sitting there with no engine. I asked Mark what happened to it, said something about you cooking the engine??

Are you have any extra mods done to it now that the engine is out?

That's 3 white group A's in Canberra Smile

Yeah engine nicely cooked Sad

I don't know how tho, the first time the temp gauge went up I pulled over within 30 seconds, before the warning light even turned on (which it did just as i was turning it off). I think that maybe the temp gauge wasn't working or something so it is pretty badly cooked (bearings are siezed???).

No extra mods Sad wallet aint that deep right now.

Which three is that? yours mine and justens?

There is also a chick who works at the museum or gallery or something with a white one...

Just spoke to Mark from NBA.

He is happy to push the event to all the owners that come through his shop.

He said depending on interest and schedules, himself Neal and/or Coral would probably be interested in attending.

He also suggested that a good cruise destination would be the workshop where we could all get a tour and close look at what goes on there. I personally think this is a sensational idea.

I also have a professional photographer who will be in attendence (my house mate). So we can get some good shots and hopefully get something published somewhere.

That'll do for now! Expect more updates as we go.

I cant get to this due to just getting back from NZ and most lileky having to pick the further improved " group a mongrel " up that weekend - but if i can make a suggestion - for all group a ( and other parties ) involved to look at the toyota fest for toymods on oct 2 i believe - as a second oppertunity for all to meet up

This would be a fantastic oppertunity for our planned Gt4 meet , and it always has great representation from toymods + their supporters..

Maybe if neal and Coral would be interested in bringing the Group N Corolla / targa lexus is200 to this event as well for a bit more interest - Im sure if they had the time - it would be very appreciated!

Can someone pass that idea on my behalf on please ?

Here is a copy of the flyer posted at NBA.



Attention GT4 Owners

A group of GT4 enthusiasts have organised a cruise. The emphasis is on the GRP A models, but all are welcome to come along.

Where: Meeting at the Questacon Carpark.
When: Sunday 17th of April 10:00am (for a 10:30 departure)

We will then head to a location (to be decided) for a photo shoot.

There will be a professional photographer in attendance to take some group shots, you may also be able to negotiate individual shots with him as well.


From there we will cruise to Hume where, if there is enough interest, we can have a first hand look at the facilities at Neal Bates Automotive.


Please contact Chris Rigter to register your interest.

zasa - get the best alarm you can possibly afford on that car - after the feature it had in hot 4's people will know it ..

( so you bought justens white one - keep good care of it buddy! )

GPS is prolly a good option so it can be tracked if ever it does go astray - im pondering the same for mine down the track over what i have had done already

My ecu allows for total lockdown - ie no way to start the car without a pin number - no way to access the pin number without the hand controller .. the hand controller goes with me if i leave it for any longer amount of time ..

The only way they can steal it - is by putting it on a truck + towing it away

Only four ppl were definate, so i'm assuming that was yourself, moi, and jono included. If you and I are both out only leaves 2, kinda pointless?

Like i said, i wont know until the weekend, so for now i'm tentative.

Hi GT4 Fellas!
There is another GT4 in the CCG, with Ben's I think off the top of my head thats 5 in the CCG!.
We have a Paintball event on the 17th in the morning with BBQ lunch after so if you think that a few more weeks are needed to get the legends firing at their best, come along to the CCG Paintball day for the 17th and rescedule your GT4 meet????
Will post the CCG paintball details soon if your interested. Cheers.
