Simon is heading over to my place at Mount Hutton ready to leave by about 6.30am, if you want to meet us there as well.  PM or SMS me for address.  Or if you were planning on going around the other way we could meet you at the twin servos maybe??  Just the 3 of us confirmed heading down from Newy.
Not sure about a car wash in Sydney.  I think there will probably be a little time once we get to Al's at Penrith to do the final bits of detailing before the Show N Shine starts.

Hi everyone,
 
This is not totally MR2 related but I thought a few people might be interested in attending a local Cars & Coffee event, its held at Nobbys beach car park on the second Sunday of every month from 7:30am till 9:30am.
 
Its a informal social gathering of automotive enthusiasts to share their automotive passions over a cup of coffee from the local Swell Espresso Bar.
 
here is a link to the FB page if anyone is interested.

That's ok.  Will see you next time. There is also the Cars-N-Coffee that Nik_Lee posted about just above.  Might be worth a visit.
Think you have to have 10 posts before you can upload pics.
If you are free tomorrow there is the 30th Anniversary drive and Show N Shine in Sydney.

Love too but my 3rd gear synchro is gone and I am shifting 2nd to 4th wich is ok as there is plenty of revs but not much fun without 3rd. 2nd hand gearbox for $150 untested is going in this week and if it don't work it's a 2k rebuild using corolla parts as I think there a shared item. Either way it's at least a week off the road but will be ready for next meet.
Photo uploaded hope u like it as I like of yr guys cars and very happy we all have different ones and yr accepting of different mr2s
My is lite and fast but I sure u guys will be faster

Always accepting of an MR2, no matter which one.  Look forward to meeting you at the next meet.  We haven't had a Spyder at any of the Newy meets yet.

Ok got my photo onto my page but can't get it come up as my profile pic so maybe after 10 posts and it will. Please bear with me people this is not only my 1st time in any sort of club it is also my 1st time on a forum so please forgive me if I seem a bit dopey lol
The spyder Is nice and not just a show pony with its full body kit and 19inch rims (but needs coil overs desperately ) it has sequential 5spd hydrolic box and an engine that just wants to rev 4eva.
It's biggest downfall is the engine is in the rear (very unforgiving if u loose it) the spare is in the front so there is no boot just 2 seats and some baggage space behind the seats but like any car if u love it u learn to live with it
Hope this gives other members and run down on what it is good and bad. I would equally like to learn about yr cars as I also don't know much about them

Don't worry about the dopey bit, that just means you'll fit in with the rest of us.
 
Biggest downfall iss that the engine is in the rear?! That's the whole point of these cars, the mid engined balance! Don't say that at a meet, you'll get things thrown at you and handed a honda brochure!!

Lol I just ment when the tail end goes usually in the wet it is very hard to catch without doing a 360 unless u r a really good driver and I am only and average one which has caught me out a couple of times. That said I am only runing lowered king springs and I think coil overs will improve this greatly if set right. There is a set from America for the spyder for $850 new delivered sorry can't remember the brand

So I missed the car and coffee thing due to ridiculous hangover, and on the day of the next meet I will be trying to make my way there however I possibly can, but at this point will be without a car as my current one sold.
Upside is that is a big step closer to owning the MR2, but hopefully I can make it to the next meet to say hi and at least admire what I am chasing for a short while.
