Sorry to see the WOF guys wised up. Had you got a WOF previously with the V6? Hopefully not a major drama for certification.

Thanks again for the springs, they are in Taupo now, family members have been relaying them closer and closer with Christmas travel haha.

I’ve had 3 wofs from the same station, I knew I would have to get the cert done but I was hoping to get one more wof haha my wife is on maternity leave so it will have to wait until after March. Glad to here they are moving in the right direction haha
Cert should be straight forward though

Was a good day today, after being off the road due to other things getting in the way my car passed its certification inspection. So I’ll be all back on the road at the end of next week.

YEESSSSS :D
Boosted cars are like hot women.
A little edgy, every guy wants one,
some guys can't handle them,
and if you throw a little alcohol in them they'll rock your world.

Unfortunately I missed attending the 25 anniversary due to a conflicting family vacation. It looks as though it was a great day at Manfeild, thanks to Olaf for sorting getting my car down to the track and back, got some great shots of it from the day, thanks to all the organisers and out of town people for making the effort to travel and boost the event numbers, hopefully we can do it again soon, I’ll make sure I’m not away for the 30th haha. Here are a couple pics from various members from the day, thanks guys.

For the brief time I got to drive the car (thanks a bunch for it btw Shaun, still got to send you your Sportsmanship award or give to you at next meet) I found it very smooth, and enjoyable with the sound. Didn't dare give it any boot, but even just cruising to the track, cruising on it for the Mass Photo and back to Shaun's, I found it was very clean inside and out, and just well put together. Definitely keen on a 6 upgrade perhaps one day if I decide to keep 2 SWs...
