Frosty seems to think the occasion will degrade into the usual pool of mud, blood & beer. Hey, we're not going to Michigan!

It'll be a night of cerebral conversation, fine wine, some tapas and perhaps a few donuts at midnight in one of Kiwi's 9 cars - or perhaps we'll use all of them.

hehe... what frosty doesn't know Fitzy, is that we live on a nice quiet country road... and tucked away under her blanket, sitting waiting, is a beast that frosty would love to drive,

he would love to own too !!

And you n  i can go burn some rubber in, we can post the pics back here for Frosty to  spin his wheels over  !!:driving::rofl:... the clue as to what i am banging on about????

plum crazy.:bowdown:

How much is petrol per litre in Oz or Aussieland these days? I know that gas is around $2.85/gallon near me. $1.30/liter near Toronto near Dualquadpete.

I googled 'carter afb air bypass' and came up with a wealth of info:
