Traveling to Australia

Recommended Posts

I will be traveling "down under" to Australia in mid December. I will be in Sydney most of the time visiting some friends. I will also have a short visit to Melbourne and Great Ocean Road.

It will be nice if I can meet some Aussie Mustang enthusiasts while down there. Also, I am willing to bring small parts ( :whistling: ) if you have a specific need. And viceversa, I could bring small parts back. PM me if interested.

Lucky you! I spent 3 weeks down under wayy back in 95. I searched and found a car show while I was there and saw odd to me at the time, right hand drive Mustangs, Camaros and Impalas. Also saw some nice Holden Monaro's. One car that I'll always remember wasn't inside the car show building, but out in the parking lot. A Ford Mach 1, which looked to be Falcon based. Really nice looking ride with cool looking graphics.

Where abouts in Sydney will you be Tony?

 

I am going to see my parents for Christmas - no Mustang though - no air con yet and the minister for war and finance needs air con :D

 

Be good to meet for a beer.

Aussies should only have Tractors, trucks and fly swatters - :P what do they need Mustangs for? - have them give all their Mustangs back to you to take back home to the USA   ::thumb::

We should meet. I will be North of Sydney near Dee-Why.

I thought I could bring back a bunch of engine heads, but I think I will have a bit of overweight :chin:

Guys,  guys, guys  :-/ ...please ...these people were sent from our Island in the 18th century as ....well...how can I put it :chin: ... not to be trusted of good will persons  :D .... Their only sophistication is funnel web spiders and Billabongs (what ever that is) :P ...surely a Mustang is technology far beyond their ken ... you must reconsider.... otherwise you'll end up in a world of Bogans, Bludgers and Brickies dumping in the dunny ::thumb::

 

 

...anyone wanna open a cool one ?  :whistling:

To negotiate buying a 71-73 Mustang you must use this phrase 

 

"G'day m8; not a bad tin-pile ...looks like its done a million clicks though, I'll need 50% off because it's obviously been driven by a whacker, and the gearbox has carked-it !"  ::thumb::

All seriousness. I would love to meet some members in the Sydney area if possible. I would love to see one of our cars with steering on the right side.

Hi Tony,

 

Dee Why is about an hour away from my parents place. Will speak to the minister for war and finance about somewhere to meet as she knows Sydney better than me.

 

Will PM my mobile number.

Enjoy your trip!!!  The Great Ocean Road is a not to miss site seeing trip.  If you schedule a tour with a company I would recommend Oceania Tours and Safaris and ask for Ricarda.  She does a great tour and takes you to places that others often miss.
