No PP in the group shots?

PP was parked out of shot in the Port Melbourne pic and arrived late for the Mount Roland group shot.

We got better weather today - it was sunny up north. 2.5 degrees C at Cradle Mountain though. 

We had a great mix of cars, and some guys who were seeing Tassie roads for the first time, which is always fun. It was all good, but I'll never get sick of finishing a weekend's drive with Cethana, then the road through Wilmot and Forth to the ferry.  :drive:

The Turbo was a total blast but seeing the orange SL glowing in the mirrors did make me a teensy bit nostalgic for a Gallardo again - in orange.:o

The ferry is 2 hours out from Devonport and she's rolling like a pig. The captain came on a while back and basically said "Hold on tight"  :eek:

I think this trip may not of been incident free....  Nothing major though I don't think!

Will wait for MHH to confirm.

 There's a bird that didn't see my Porsche coming, but I can't recall anything else.

Brett lost power near Derwent Bridge but the Commodore 64 ECU responded to a re-boot.  :scratchchin:

We saw some inconsiderate driving by some other tourists from time to time, but mostly the best place in Australia treated us well.

Ha! If only it had half that brain!

Still no idea what happened to it, but it's been fine the whole time since.

I think he made it all up, and stopped 'cos he saw a sheep looking all lonely and alluring, cold, and maybe needing a cuddle.........

I just took the car to Splash for a clean.  Tim even managed to polish the bird scuff out of the bra.  The car looks brand new.  Highly recommend these guys.  :thumbsup:
