Actually the funny thing I found in Moretti's was that there is like a cushion of hot air a few mm thick coming from the radiator up and over the windscreen - on a bracing morning it actually warms your melon a bit! :p

Yes, made better on a warm day if you wind the side glass down!

So dad didn't sell him a dud then?

Ummmmm, no, but I can't imagine he would even do that to PP   :D

Excellent day, looked a bit ominous to start with. Huge thunderheads were looming over the city as we all met and took off, but thereon we had excellent weather.

Cruising down the mountain between Toolangi and Healesville, my Testarossa ran out of throttle. Like None!!.

The others were waved past and I pulled off the internal cover plates and trims to find a small metal clip on the throttle cable linkage had snapped. Not good!!

Roadside repairs were made with some race tape, a kleenex box and a fair share of hope and we cruised on out through the Spur.

PP's old Pommie girl failed to start at one point, and Carl's thermostat went on the blink but apart from those small issues it was a great day.

Thanks to all concerned for organising the day. Looking forward to the next one.

PS: Good thing I have the spare car. I knocked off a clip on the way home and am fitting it in the shed as I write this (just resting the back)!

I'll order a new one so I don't get in the other car some day and lose the throttle coz I forgot. It's bound to happen.

Ah, the joys of motoring. Geelong Cup down here today, all I can say is OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!     :D :argh: :drink:

Well, that's exactly what I would have thought too.  I don't know if anyone has any video of today (Stu??) but if there is, you will see at one stage the Qv exiting the corners and going through 3/4 gear and the 328 GTB behind not gaining on it at all under accelleration.

 

that's a rather dumb thing to say isn't it?
