NEW 60 Day Log Book Scheme announced for NSW
Don’t waste your money on the SMH tomorrow.
The “announcement” of the new scheme was slid in beside a report on possible speed limit changes on a couple of highways on page 2 of today’s paper.
This is a pretty disappointing low-key way to unveil the new scheme but there it is.
We have the new scheme and it will be up and running on October 1st (according to the announcement).

Spring came early on Sunday with picture perfect weather.
We met at McDonald’s Penrith for the run to Mt Victoria Pub. Our planned route took us along the back roads of Penrith, through Richmond, Kurrajong and onto the Bells line of road our destination was the Imperial Hotel Mt Victoria. There was some spectacular views to be had along the way, not to mention some great tarmac as well.
Gremlins struck Jurgen at McDonald’s even before we started with a fuel leak and Donnah with saggy mirrors (and that is the last thing anyone would want.) Out with the tool kit (unfortunately not the first time it made an appearance) and both problems were quickly rectified with the help of others and we were on our way, albeit half an hour behind schedule.
We welcomed first timers Andrew in his beautiful LX 5.0 SS, Mark in his Blue Meanie VK, Ray and Garry in an R/T Charger and Dave and George in a VF SS. It was great to have some new cars to drool over.
Our colourful convoy ended up numbering 14 , with 8 Toranas a VK, an R/T Charger, 2 VZ’s a crewman and a VF SS. Quite the motley crew.
A short drivers briefing and a run note handout and we were off. The trouble free journey took around 90 minutes.
We arrived at the lunch stop at about 12.00. Traditional pub fare was on offer with schnitzels proving very popular. After lunch had settled, a couple of the group headed home. The rest of us headed back down the Bells line of road for dessert at the Pie in the sky. After our fill of apple pie we gathered what was left of us for the group shot and headed our separate ways home.
Not long into the journey the dreaded gremlins stuck again Jurgen bonnet up at north Richmond with the LJ refusing to start. Out with the tool kit again and the red machine roared into life and ran trouble free all the way home.
Thanks to all who attended making it an enjoyable day and a warm welcome to those non-members who joined us for the cruise.
Darren summed it all up beautifully at lunch commenting ” Give me sunny weather and a run to a pub for lunch and i’m there” i could not agree more.
