You gotta be shitting me ... $120 for breakfast!!

I'm sorry, I think they've lost the plot on this one. They're trying to turn a casual event into a money machine.  I'm definitely not going for that.  All the other events Machines and Machiattos etc, seem to manage with a $5 donation or a $10 fee at most.

Sorry, but maybe I'm just a grumpy old man ... but I don't get it.

I'm not paying for someone else to get benefit from showing off my car ... fucking insane.  Plus I hate driving into the city.  I'd rather pay $120 for the Bullrush Rally Drive Days without the audience.

Is it just me ... or have these guys lost the plot?

It's not really my thing; but I wouldn't pay either.
I don't get the whole attraction anyway.  Who wants to  park your car (risking it being damaged by idiots) only to be hassled all day by knobs asking you the usual 3 personal questions:

1) How much did it cost?
2) How fast does it go?
3) What do you do to make that much money?

Not my idea of fun, I'd much rather go for a drive!

I always get a laugh, even after 35yrs of using it; but on balance I would rather not be hassled.

You could assume that they have to pay for use of the wharf? So trying to recoup that cost.
But yep...$120 to park your car plus breakfast seems a bit pricey.

If that's the case they did a really crap negotiation since supercar d'elegance was always free on same spot

oooooo...i though they were going to pay me $120 to put my car on show...nevermind. 

I only have 3 days back in the country that weekend, not going to waste half a day battling Pyrmont and cleaning grubby finger prints, bit jaded I'm missing the bullrush drive day though.  I seem to always miss it by about a week.
