@  MattP : (17 February 2020 - 02:21 PM) Sad news that Holden will no longer exist by the end of this year . . . . but not a great surprise.
@  MattP : (03 February 2020 - 12:52 PM) I visited Qld for the past four days and took some plate photos which I'll share as time permits.  I will try and put them in the correct thread but Shed experts may move them as needed to the actual correct thread
@  pl8hntr : (29 January 2020 - 12:00 PM)       Sounds like here in the USA.  A shame.  Pete
@  Matty_769 : (29 January 2020 - 06:47 AM) Thanks Pete :cheers: Sadly it’s becoming a day of embarrassing tantrums and I fear it’s a mater of time before someone listens to these divisive activists :sad:
@  pl8hntr : (28 January 2020 - 10:40 AM)       Haven't been on the SHED for a couple of days.  Hope you all had a great "Australia Day"   :ausflag:  :ausflag:  :ausflag: .  Pete
@  Matty_769 : (26 January 2020 - 11:06 PM) For anyone scratching their heads... the comment I made about the pathetic attendance was on Facebook and not here.... about 50 cars... hardly any commercial vehicles, and the usual dozen plus motorcycles was two!  No veteran cars either.
@  VIC-369 : (26 January 2020 - 05:43 PM) :au-flag: :au-flag: :au-flag: :iagree:  What a great country we live in.  I thought about going to the RACV car show in the city but I appreciate the warning from Matty that it was pretty pathetic compared to earlier years.  I usually go away for this weekend but I decided to stay home after our adventures in the bushfires and a long scenic drive home from Eden via Canberra.  :auto:  I remember going to the RACV show with JohnC years ago and it was a fantastic event.  I think the do-gooders didn't want the gardens so full of people and cars so they limited it then the car clubs reacted by not coming.  What a shame.
@  johnc : (26 January 2020 - 12:32 PM) Happy Australia Day to all - and unless my memory is failing even more than I thought it's also Happy India Day ...Cheers.  JC :au-flag:
@  johnc : (26 January 2020 - 12:27 PM) Hapy birthday to Moz's Lab Rat - hard to imagine that Eight years have passed since that knowledgable little critter was born.
@  MattP : (21 January 2020 - 03:01 PM) "Royal Dutch Army Motorcyclist Drummer" . . .  a great photo description I posted today and a combination of words I never thought belonged together . . . .
@  HasMan : (15 January 2020 - 10:30 PM) Hi guys, thanks for all the 'likes' lately. It is amazing how many more you get when you actually do some posting.
@  VIC-369 : (06 January 2020 - 09:37 PM) I'm back.  :hello:  Drove from Albury to home today in a strange mixture of thick smoke and rain.
@  Leigh90 : (05 January 2020 - 06:02 PM) Had a lengthy phone call from VIC-369 at around 6 pm today. He is somewhere around Holbrook and driving through thick smoke. They have quite a story to tell and are looking forward to getting back home.
@  VIC-369 : (03 January 2020 - 03:08 PM) Thanks for thinking of us everyone. We are safe in Canberra now with cousins. Lots to tell you about being moved out of Eden but I hate phone keyboard. More when I get home. :hello:
@  johnc : (03 January 2020 - 01:34 PM) I meant to add that for the info of non Melbourne based shedders, there is a strong smoke smell and some moderate haze here in my suburb today and we are a couple of hundred miles away from the nearest fire as far as I can tell.  Not good for my old and dodgy lungs but really doesn't matter compared to those poor buggers who are losing houses and even lives.
@  MattP : (03 January 2020 - 01:24 PM) Thanks Leigh and others for keeping in touch with Shedders and letting us know.
@  johnc : (03 January 2020 - 01:20 PM) Yes, thanks Leigh.  Rotten news about Wes who has not had it easy of latter times.  I just notice that DW is looking at the shed now, so perhaps we will get some news of him soon.
@  Matty_769 : (03 January 2020 - 12:52 PM) Thanks for keeping us informed Leigh :cheers:
@  Leigh90 : (03 January 2020 - 12:08 PM) Just phoned VIC-369 again, this time got through to his messagebank. Left a message, so no further news.
@  Leigh90 : (03 January 2020 - 11:40 AM) As for Wes and Julie, Big G phoned me yesterday and then phoned Wes who told Gary that his place of work (Repco) in Bateman's Bay had burned down and he had no work now.
@  Leigh90 : (03 January 2020 - 11:37 AM) Has been 18 hours since I SMS'd VIC and wife, but still no answer. He is probably more likely to get petrol than diesel so he is lucky his van is petrol powered. The diesel is being reserved for town and emergency generators and fire trucks.
@  Matty_769 : (03 January 2020 - 09:51 AM) We’d did make a plate post on a Facebook page today so i guess that’ll confirm he’s still alive.
@  johnc : (02 January 2020 - 10:42 PM) Thanks Leigh.  That shout was directed at you but I managed to keave off your name somehow !  DW must have been able to get fuel ok - that road to Canberra had some trees down according to this mornings TV but the authorities seemed confident of getting vehicles through. I had forgotten that Was and Julie had shifted around there (Batemans Bay ?)  I wish them well too.
@  Leigh90 : (02 January 2020 - 09:23 PM) Was in touch with VIC-369 this morning. He has to leave earlier than planned and also has to come home the long way via Canberra.  Has anyone hear from Wes Harris and Julie who live near Bateman's Bay?  Worrying.
@  Matty_769 : (02 January 2020 - 06:50 PM) He was here deleting stuff last night ....
