Turbo Friday Cruise 2017 Twisty Heaven

Big thanks to Adam, Amanda and co for another great club cruise starting at Beechworth Bakery where we all filled our tanks on yummy brekky and coffee etc then after Adam had informed us of the do's and don'ts of the clubs cruise guidelines we headed off in two groups through the Black Spur at a leisurely pace thanks to a couple of nervous motorbike riders. :thumbsdow: The weather was great and the sight and sounds of all the turbo subies was beaut also.
After travelling along the Goulburn Valley Highway we turned onto the Eildon -Jameison rd with sixty two kilometres of normally fun twisties but unfortunately for us some sections had recently been re-tarred with stones laid on top :hairpull: causing us to drive at a snails pace over these sections to avoid stone chips nervous , I actually had one stone flick up onto my mirror and deflect into my chest lucky for me I'm a tough bloke and only cried for a minute or so haha. :wink:
Unfortunately Mark had some car troubles and required a tow truck so Snowy offered his assistance to make sure he was able to get his car back to Melbourne well done Snowy that's the club spirit. :bowdown: The rest of us headed to the Kevington pub for a fantastic lunch and a good chin wag before saying our goodbyes and heading home with a couple of members being stopped at Jamieson for a roadside breathalyzer :police: without any concern of course, most of us going the long way through Mansfield to avoid the stones. Again a big thanks to Adam and Amanda for such a great cruise and look forward to the next one. :thumbs:

Yes, it was very nice of Snowy to wait with me and help me out.
That recently re tarred section was terrible for stones; I have noticeable chips on my rims that I'll have to touch up.

Hey Brad! How've you been?
Melted a big end bearing, snapped a rod, put a hole in the block, and bent some valves.

New ej207 short block, ARP head studs, MLS (I think) gaskets, refresh heads.
Heads were back from the machinist and fitted on Tuesday, so I it should be ready next week. Tony from URD has been rebuilding it.
