    Sup guys,

    ...haven't been on here in ages, but still love it when I see a VR4 fly past. I may not be rocking a fast or cool car anymore, but was curious if you guys do wash meets anymore? I'd love to catch up with the crew, and see some fresh faces. Anyone keen?

    (Gav, smity, tris, whoever!)

    Not many old farts left these days. We have a bunch of new farts though.

    157,000km and still here!

    Quite a few impromptu meets under a different flag (Eastside JDM, Cars-and-Coffee, etc) or just random messages involving Halal Snack Packs and our rides.

    And definitely keen for a meet up!

    Hey man! I did disappear! 3 years in and out of hospital, split with my ex, back at Uni now... been all over the place, but getting my shit back together.

    Well then, a wash meet seems like it could be a goer?

    Hey Steve. I just bought another Legnum so I am back again. I was just reminising over some of the pics from the show at the showgrounds just recently and was thinking about the wash meets.

    Hey Steve

    I'm still around, Just.
    My green Leggy arrived here and was registered in June 2006, so maybe I am close to the oldest around.
    Had 57500 or so KM when I bought it, Has 212,000 on it now.

    Would be good to catch up with some of the originals some time.

    Bout time you popped in again Steve !!

    Hard to believe had the leggie for 9 years this year. Jesus your right, we are getting old.:p:p

    Nat, the Kids & I are in Melbourne for a wedding in April, would be great to have a re-union with the Vic crew again, it will be 7 years in October since our last VIC car wash meet...

    Still around, just. Just picked up my new car, so mine will be for sale soon. Was a hard decision to make as it's exactly how I want it. But I needed cruise control, a tow bar and something that drinks less. Couldn't justify the costs to change my car to something it's not.

    How it currently stands.
