im planning on joining this on saturday: https://adelaideautoexpo.com.au/expo-ev ... el-cruise/

i rode in a mates car last year, and had a ball. not sure where the cruise is to this year, last year it was up and down anzac highway between glenelg and the city. we ended up parking at kmart to grab a feed and just watch everyone go past. the daughter, 11 at the time, had a bit of an education at the end of the night when we did the hindley st cruise on our way home :lol:

will be my last drive for a little while probably as the nova goes in monday to have the blowout damage fixed. not sure how long that will take, but ill assume it will be a couple of weeks at least.


Apologies, been away and then had to actually work.

Yeah, barring a late disaster I'm locked into attending. Made sure everything was vacuumed yesterday & will get the chamois out this week.

Noted, I'll keep an eye out.

I'll be the one in the family truckster still trying to figure out what entrant entry level applies to the Zippel cruise!

yeah, the website doesnt exactly make that clear does it?

im planning on just showing up and waving my card at whoever is on the gate. just swipe it for whatever they charge and be done with it.

i did see that this year the cruisers are coming in from leader st, and parking on the oval. last year they all came in past the ferris wheel and parked right out the front of the jubilee pavilion. must be expecting more cars this year.

well, auto expo was ok. wasnt as big as previous years, but id guess that was because there were basically no interstate cars (borders closed etc). still glad i went along.

was pretty good checking out the barracuda in the elite hall, considering the guys that built it (auto transformers out at para hills west) are fixing my nova from today (i was going to ask if the barracuda was a loan car, but they looked busy so left the dad jokes alone)

bumped into the milky bar kid, was good to see you mate. and i really do like your wagon. ive got a soft spot for wagons since i learnt to drive in a kingswood wagon many, many years ago, and there is just something about those wood paneled ones like yours that just looks right.

Saw a bit of the cruise Saturday night, a pimped blue Mercury I think it is, what a machine.

Yes was a good night although I spent more time looking at the RC drift cars than the real cars with my 4yo! Ended up being one of the last cars off the grass when leaving.

The maroon and blue hotrods at the main hall entrance were a standout but yeah when going into the elite area its really is a whole nother level… dream cars for sure, some big $ spent in there.
