It's late, and I should have been in bed at least an hour ago. Typical. And I'm up late on the internet, looking for porn. Eureka porn. And the winner is Radek.

I haven't gone looking for photos of our cars on line for a while, so I thought, just a quick look can't hurt. And indeed, I found this photo;



Apparently you were spotted at the Cars & Coffee last august Radek. Warming up for the AGM I take it?   Tongue

These forums have been tooo quiet lately. So lets try and wake it up some. So, if you're out and about and you spot a 'reek, take a photo (safely, no taking photos whilst driving!) and post it up here. Especially if you don't know the car. Or, if you find a rather nice photo on the net, of any of our cars or our cousins, post it up here. Make sure it's a nice clear photo. Bonus points if it's a professional photo, like the watermarked image of Radeks.

Come on peeps, keep this forums heart beating!

 Grin

Now, I'm going to try and grab some sleep (and stop listening to Pentatonix, main reason I haven't grabbed a few zzzz's to be honest. lol)  Cheesy

Lol, thanks CyCo!

For those in Melbourne the monthly cars and coffee meet's actually quite a fun one to go along to.  I'd go more often if it wasn't so far west!

That's The BAT's Reek

Big splurge on the NGVic in the Next Club Newsletter, out this weekend.

Also, if the Vics are out n about and just passing, you will also see a Red Eureka on the flags outside

Found another one. Anyone know who goes by the name DrFe3lgo0d on the internet, or at least Reddit?? Must have a good engine in it, goes 155MPH apparently.  Tongue  (Movie geek trivia. Same number plates as in Cannonball Run II).

Yep, that's Blake from Queensland's Reek. Cool

It used to be owned by Fred and Adrian here in Victoria and they'd had it on the market for a while until Blake came along Smiley

Perhaps you might remember it from their previous post here --> What's it worth

Still a very cool car even though it has migrated north Tongue

Yep. Shocked

Blake only bought it in September last year.  I picked him up from the airport in Mr Sparkles and drove him (very sedately Wink) to Fred's place where test drives were had, questions were answered and deals were done.  Then on the way back to the airport I let him have a drive of Mr Sparkles so he had another Reek to compare the ride with, then I took control again and let Mr Sparkles have a healthy drink of petrol and Blake didn't say much for a little while after that Grin Cool

Admittedly I could see he was hooked on Reeks as soon as I pulled up to meet him at the airport so it has definitely gone to a good home Afro
