  • Visited our neighbours and had a couple of candle lit glasses with them. Came home, plugged the genni in and all was good with the world. Dunno what the problem was

    • can someone refresh my memory. was the V8 push into China successful? I only ask because I see TC is involved in a move to play an AFL game in China next year.

      • Superbly successful, 3 people actually paid to see the event and another couple took advantage of freebie tickets.

        • This new Lethal Weapon TV show is hilarious. For all the wrong reasons.

          • Not really a laugh but more of a giggle and a shake of the head. The buyers on Ebay that "bought" some $19.99 1/18 "specials" from a seller in China. Not only was the offer too good to be true and obviously a scam, (price, listing descriptions stolen from legit auctions, China???), but when their "bargains" didn't turn up, and they realised they weren't going to get them, they got all nasty and left the negative feedback (should have just held their heads in shame instead). These scammers prey on greedy people like this. I can understand that someone might say "Hey it's only $20 and if it doesn't turn up, then it's only $20. (probably gamble on the horses and pokies too) But that 20 bucks along with all the other 20 bucks, makes many thousands that this scammer has ended up with. Now as for the greedy buggers that scooped up multiples, all I have to say is "A fool and his money are soon parted".

            • But if they paid by paypal aren't they protected. Scams are everywhere at the moment.

              • i bought a book on Ford Australia recently. they mention how when the Factory in Fremantle stopped making cars (Ford made cars in Fremantle??), they used the factory to repair cars shipped over from Sydney & Melbourne. a frequent repair was bullet holes. apparently the cars were shipped on open rail cars and people would use them for target practice.

                  so six classic cars were denied entry to Australia because they may contain asbestos. yet hundreds of Chinese built cars are allowed to be sold in the country even though we know for sure that they contain asbestos.

                  • Border force have become a pack of absolute Wally's, they are the ones who should be denied entry.

                      • Yep ! we get that in N.Z as well.

                        By the time you open the door they have jumped back into their van and started to reverse out the driveway.

                        • Listening to Crompton and Skaifes commentary from Bathurst, it was so frantic and laughable how Whincup then Van Gisbergen were going to blow past the Mustang.

                          • Bathurst might be worth watching again if they get rid of the purpose built racecars and went back to a production based formula. The whole thing has become a corporate money making machine with little regard for the grass roots fans of old, the series is not even on free to air tv. May as well just make the current format a 3 lap sprint we even have teams exploiting the rules or lack of them to ensure a win now. How good would it be to see production cars such as the kia stinger turbo commodore ford focus right down to suzuki swifts etc running in 3 or 4 classes? It is also good for the advancement of the cars we are seeing in the showrooms. Get rid of this money making machine that is ruining motorsport and let the manufacturers run their own teams or at least sponsor teams using their product. The current format is to boring.

                              They have the exact race your after in Easter for the Bathurst 6hr, and unfortunately I doesn’t get the same interest. TCR might compete but won’t beat V8 Supercars.
                              Sorry, but you can’t called yesterday’s race or the current formula boring. Up to lap 100 without a safety car after the first lap incident, and having 4 cars within a couple of seconds after that distance is incredible. The drama and incidents for the next 61 laps was edge of the seat stuff, regardless of the Coulthard breach.

                              • In my opinion the race was boring because it lacks relevancy for me for the exact reason Sleepy gave. Sure, it was probably a good race technically, but I find the series irrelevant.
