@  johnc : (02 April 2020 - 10:48 PM) Good to see a comment from you BB. and I trust you are keeping well.  I had a half formed plan to call on you on a visit to SA for the convention but that's all gone now.  Maybe next year. Cheers :cuppa:
@  BlueBoy : (02 April 2020 - 04:28 PM) All quiet here, looks like everyone has left.
@  MattP : (01 April 2020 - 09:32 AM) Thank you for 5000 likes!
@  VIC-369 : (26 March 2020 - 11:59 PM) andynchap I would rather "ask the audience" sometimes rather than going straight to google.  With that Conoco sign I expected one of the sign collectors may have known what it was.  That was a really interesting article you found about the history of it.  Thanks.  Did you see the HCS on the sign at Syndal garage that Bigears put up?  I know that was HC Sleigh but some wouldn't know.  I asked bigears if it was Syndal in NZ but it appears it is Syndal in Melbourne.  I didn't know there was a garage there back in the day.  Syndal is one of those quaint sub-names of a suburb (Glen Waverley) with the same postcode.
@  Matty_769 : (26 March 2020 - 07:35 PM) Perhaps more persistence and thinking outside the square will give the more precise response. Some seem to think the answer they seek must be the first and most obvious...  a bit like plate shed search... you need to Just narrow it down... not just expect the one and only precise response. Sometimes it’s a word not related to the type... why open the vic section and search “football” which will give a heap of responses when you could try “crows” and get a few to pick from :soapbox:
@  hoarder1 : (26 March 2020 - 07:19 PM) Google can be your friend... but like a drunk friend down the pub... doesn't always give you the answer you want, and sometimes if they do, they might be lying to you just to make you feel good.  It's still up to you to decide which answer is true.  The internet is a lot more useful since Google 'perfected' the art of search engines.  Remember when it first came out?  Like reading an encyclopaedia, dictionary and bible each time you wanted to find something. 
@  Matty_769 : (26 March 2020 - 01:31 PM) Dunno Andy.... I reckon we know one who isn't :saythat:
@  andynchap : (26 March 2020 - 12:37 PM) Google and I go way back.  :worship:  Google is everyone's friend.
@  Matty_769 : (26 March 2020 - 12:26 AM) Google is your friend too ? . . . .  :thumbs up:
@  hoarder1 : (26 March 2020 - 12:05 AM) Carnivorous (I googled it - not smart enough to work it our myself).  Did you know 'a ragman' is an anagram of 'anagram' ?
@  VIC-369 : (25 March 2020 - 06:26 PM) What is an anagram of CORONAVIRUS? One word.  :book:
@  johnc : (25 March 2020 - 11:37 AM) Agree totally with H1.   And also thanks to all for many recent "likes".…...  Cheers,  JCC
@  hoarder1 : (19 March 2020 - 08:12 PM) Disappointing to hear about the cancelled club meets, but fully understand why.  It is happening everywhere and across all sectors of the community.  Take care everyone, stay safe and keep in touch.  the sense of community is what will get us all through.  If the Aussies can take one point away - STOP PANIC BUYING... and everyone will have enough.  Madness, and embarrassing. 
@  Leigh90 : (13 March 2020 - 07:04 PM) :thankyou:  Seem to have had a few 'Likes' lately, so will take the time to thank you all profusely.
@  MattP : (12 March 2020 - 06:33 PM) An interesting plate spotting day today of NSW black on white premium plates, saw one with EEE this morning, then a DDD and then tonight another EEE.  What are the odds?
@  MattP : (12 March 2020 - 03:10 PM) Thank you to those who generously take the time to "like" posts, much appreciated!  Hope you are all well . . .
@  daanton : (04 March 2020 - 07:35 AM) "Heritage"? My mistake.
@  Matty_769 : (03 March 2020 - 07:05 PM) perso ?? no, it's a heritage numeric plate... no rumour, I watched it on auction live last night!
@  daanton : (03 March 2020 - 08:03 AM) "Rumour confirmed." https://www.3aw.com.au/rumour-confirmed-victorian-number-plate-sells-for-1-1-million/
@  daanton : (03 March 2020 - 07:05 AM) Just heard on the news this a.m. ...... VIC perso number pl8 "26" fetches over AU$1,000,000 at auction! :plateshed:
@  MattP : (24 February 2020 - 02:22 PM) In my opinion, Holden was destined to fail due to below-par product compared to the competition.  It started almost twenty years ago when they slapped a Holden badge on many vehicles sourced from various Asian countries which had unacceptable reliability . . . . leading to many long-term Holden fans buying their first Toyota or Hyundai . . . and never going back.  Not everyone needed something as big as a Commodore and the other offerings were below average.
@  MattP : (24 February 2020 - 02:19 PM) Gary Walker is fairly active on bookface, posting something as recently as an hour ago
@  Matty_769 : (22 February 2020 - 01:55 PM) Daaanton, Have you tried calling Gary who’s details are available in the NPCC members list :?:
@  daanton : (22 February 2020 - 06:15 AM) And a question: could Holden have survived (even in a diminished capacity) had it been acquired by PSA Peugeot (like Opel and Vauxhall)?
@  daanton : (22 February 2020 - 06:13 AM) Any fellow Shed'ers seen or heard from Gary Walker lately?  :?:  Hope he didn't succumb to the recent "bush hellfires" while driving his Mack, Kenworth, or whichever....
