  1. Hi guys I havent been here for a couple of years I had a heart transplant in han 2014 and whilst the new heart is great there were major problems so Ive spent 22 months of the last 36 months in hospital - Im out now and hoping to get on with one of my passions of collecting 1/32 slots particularly Formula 1 and Can Am and Le Mans cars (finished not kits) either mint or slightly used in original boxes Im only looking at the decade of 1960s. I currently have collected sone 170 odd cars ( some very rare gems involved) - Im not interested in selling just to build the collection and at some stage pass onto one of my three sons - im 63 and its a great passtime for me given my interest in all things m otor sport. I need to know what online sites I could look at chasing these models - any help would be greatly appreciated. I can be contacted on my email address stevec503@gmail.com many thanks in advance Steve.
  2. Aarons a good mate of mine and took me for 15 laps at speed around Eastern Creek - brilliant stuff 250kph through turn one - enormous power and enormous downforce - it was really get through the turn and squirt and you were into the next corner - heres some shots of that day.

  7. Stargate I would print all that off and take it to the police thats pure intimidation on this tossers behalf if he really is a lawyer then he wouldnt be doing that and I suppose could be disbarred - I had some a/hole log into my website and threaten to kill me 6 weeks ago - took it straight to the police who treat these things seriously they traced the IP address to a computer in the NSW education dept and Im going to have the person charged - Id suggest you do the same

  10. Saw this in Australian Music Business today - Id actually put money on this band doing a last minute no show as theyve done numerous times before V8 Supercar Championship To Bring Out The Big Guns After reuniting legendary Australian rockers, Cold Chisel to perform a one-off show at last year's Telstra 500 V8 Supercar Championship, global rock legends Guns N' Roses have been announced to headline the event in 2010. According to organisers the Cold Chisel concert attracted just under 50,000 fans, with more than 184,000 people attending the Supercar Championship over three days. It was the biggest single event to be held in New South Wales during 2009. Last year's entertainment acts also included Grinspoon, The Living End, The Presets and Potbelleez. The V8 Supercar Championship Series will be held December 3 - 5 at Sydney Olympic Park. Tickets are available through Ticketek.

    I havent laughed so much in years :yellowbounce: :purplebounce: :lbluebounce: I went to Bunnings recently while not being altogether sure that course of action was a wise one. You see, the previous evening I had prepared and consumed a massive quantity of my patented 'you're definitely going to s**t yourself' road-kill chilli. Tasty stuff, albeit hot to the point of being painful, which comes with a written guarantee from me that if you eat it, the next day both of your butt cheeks WILL fall off. Here's the thing. I had awakened that morning, and even after two cups of coffee (and all of you know what I mean) nothing happened. No 'Watson's Movement 2'. Despite habanera P*pp*rs swimming their way through my intestinal tract, I was unable to create the usual morning symphony referred to by my dear wife as 'thunder and lightning'. Knowing that a time of reckoning HAD to come, yet not sure of just when, I bravely set off for Bunnings, my quest being paint and supplies to refinish the den. Upon entering the store at first all seemed normal. I selected a cart and began pushing it about dropping items in for purchase. It wasn't until I was at the opposite end of the store from the restrooms that the pain hit me. Oh, don't look at me like you don't know what I'm talking about. I'm referring to that 'Uh, Oh, s#!t, gotta go' pain that always seems to hit us at the wrong time.. The thing is, this pain was different. The habaneras in the chilli from the night before were staging a revolt. In a mad rush for freedom they bullied their way through the small intestines, forcing their way into the large intestines, and before I could take one step in the direction of the restrooms which would bring sweet relief, it happened. The P*pp*rs fired a warning shot. There I stood, alone in the paint and stain section, suddenly enveloped in a noxious cloud the likes of which has never before been recorded. I was afraid to move for fear that more of this vile odor might escape me. Slowly, oh so slowly, the pressure seemed to leave the lower part of my body, and I began to move up the aisle and out of it, just as a red aproned clerk turned the corner and asked if I needed any help. I don't know what made me do it, but I stopped to see what his reaction would be to the malodorous effluvium that refused to dissipate.. Have you ever been torn in two different directions emotionally? Here's what I mean, and I'm sure some of you at least will be able to relate. I could've warned that poor clerk, but didn't. I simply watched as he walked into an invisible, and apparently indestructible, wall of odor so terrible that all he could do before gathering his senses and running, was to stand there blinking and waving his arms about his head as though trying to ward off angry bees. This, of course, made me feel terrible, but then made me laugh. .......BIG mistake!!!!! Here's the thing. When you laugh, it's hard to keep things 'clamped down', if you know what I mean. With each new guffaw an explosive issue burst forth from my nether region. Some were so loud and echoing that I was later told a few folks in other aisles had ducked, fearing that someone was robbing the store and firing off a shotgun. Suddenly things were no longer funny. 'It' was coming, and I raced off through the store towards the restrooms, laying down a cloud the whole way, praying that I'd make it before the grand mal assplosion took place. Luck was on my side. Just in the nick of time I got to the john, began the inevitable 'Oh my God', floating above the toilet seat because my ass is burning SO BAD, purging. One poor fellow walked in while I was in the middle of what is the true meaning of 'Shock and Awe'. He made a gagging sound, and disgustedly said, 'Son-of-a-bitch!, did it smell that bad when you ate it?', then quickly left. Once finished and I left the restroom, reacquired my partially filled cart intending to carry on with my shopping when a store employee approached me and said, 'Sir, you might want to step outside for a few minutes. It appears some prankster set off a stink bomb in the store. The manager is going to run the vent fans on high for a minute or two which ought to take care of the problem.' My smirking of course set me off again, causing residual gases to escape me. The employee took one sniff, jumped back pulling his shirt up to cover his nose and, pointing at me in an accusing manner shouted, 'IT'S YOU!', then ran off returning moments later with the manager. I was unceremoniously escorted from the premises and asked none too kindly not to return Home again without my supplies, I realized that there was nothing to eat but leftover chilli, so I consumed two more bowls. The next day I went to shop atWoolies . I can't say anymore about that because we are in court over the whole matter. Bastards claim they're going to have to repaint the store.
  13. That will be brilliant - a true hero of mine along with Jim Hall - I remember sitting at the kitchen table in front of the fuel stove in 66 in a small NSW rural town Manilla reading about each of his wins that season in I think those days the Mirror Sun?? at the tender age of 12 then heading off on an hour trip on the bus to school - the man is inspirational - he's done it tough for a few years now with the kidney dialysis which I believe is a few times a week but hopefully he's around for a few more years to come - a great man :rofl: Thanks Ozzyneil
  14. It will be interesting to see how Cochrane and VESA handle the imbalance in the series now with 20 GMH runners and only 9 Fords for 2010 - its nearly a one make series - Im a Blue Oval supporter of many years but am a fan also of the GRM team whom Im sure will lose out from the Triple 8 deal with GMH as will the Kelly's and Team BOC - I doubt we will see any other manufacturers in the series anytime soon also so it makes you wonder what the master plan is moving on.
