Sure did :mrgreen:
Just looking through the photos on trackphotos.com.au and there's a crapload of cars that I don't think I saw once on track. Especially the red dual cab truck (whom I have spoken to at a T&T night). I did however see his hubcaps that he left on the track :lol:

That will be Hertz (Brett). I haven't heard from him in ages. Good to see his car is still getting around! :wink:

Pretty sure thats the one. I think i met him many years ago at a motorkhana. I have another freind just finishing a very orange track car atm, so I'm afraid there will be a few around.

If "X" is an Unknown quantity, and a Spurt is a drip under pressure, then an "EXPERT" is an "Unknown Drip Under Pressure".
Why dont they just call it "Womenapause" instead.

Nice and clean original Black GTi going pretty fast thru Malaga.

The Black model must have been very popular back in the day.

Also I found this ... nice rear end.
