Great day for a cruise stopped at Peter Brock Memorial, finished up at Mundaring pub
Andy had an adventure:
Pretty girls but one of them let me down
Smoke coming out of the steering column, pulled over quickly on the free way
Tried to get battery disconnected but too tight without spanner
Smoke did not smell like electrical searched further with floody
Restarted the 73 and smoke started again out of the column and blinker arm hole ????????????
Lifted bonnet and found oil leak from rocker cover onto exhaust manifold and fan blowing it up the steering column into the cab
Who would of thunk
Returned 73 to workshop and continued on in the 69 with Greg

August Midweek Cruise 2020 – CU@Park Cafe in Granville Park, Gingin
A brilliant day in the sunshine driving up to that town that will soon have to change its name because of cheese. There is something magic about blue sky and green fields and a Corvette blasting along a country road. You would never get it in a Volkswagen! The food was awesome at the CU Cafe, their chef really knows what a “blue” steak is, really! ( to make a good blue steak all you do is run the steer through a bushfire and serve). In the videos, the up and down movement is to “give life” to the lineup (that is my excuse!!). On the way up I had a fox run across the road in front of me, nearly skittled him. Nothing unusual you would say, foxes are everywhere (thanks to the Queen), but you would be wrong. This fox was the size of a large Shetland pony and it had a great white shark in its mouth! (well, you get the idea, this beast was big!!). I have never before seen a fox towing a dual axle caravan, but there is a first time for everything!! I followed Andy W and Natalie T back south but when I lost them over the horizon on a prairie where you could see for 68 miles, I decided to lower my speed to warp factor 4. Happily the fuel gauge stopped moving faster than the tacho and I decided to take a diversion to the Yanchep Lagoon. Saw several foxes catching great whites and a couple of white pointers on the beach. As the ocean started to overwhelm the sun, I sadly headed the Corvettes bow for her homeport in Kingsley. Ended the day following James Bond home (what a number plate to have!!). Keep your eyes out for shark eating foxes, they’re everywhere! Adios Amigos

Just a bit of input from John N
We went on a CVBC today!!! That’s a “Co-Vid-Buster Cruise”, buster! Lunch under the trees as the stable of Corvettes sat quietly nearby awaiting another chance to growl their way up the hills and down the dales; out came the chairs and tables and cakes and sandwiches and the talk of spare parts and headlights and bonnets and wheels and paint jobs and tyres and horsepower and upholstery and spark plugs and fuel; ahhhhhh…..love is a Corvette!!! Grrr Grrrrr Grrroooooowwwwlllll!!!!
