Cars and Coffee – 3 August 2014

It had been two months since our last attendance at Sydney Automobile Club’s Cars and Coffee at Cavallino, Terrey Hills and we’d heard that the crowds were still growing at each event! Rising early and leaving home in what we thought was good time, we arrived at 7:45am, 15 minutes before […]

Cars and Coffee – 8 June 2014

Another month, another Cars and Coffee meet at Cavallino, Terry Hills. Again, there were some stunning and interesting cars on display and, most hearteningly,  a bunch of different cars to last month’s meet. An apt number plate for this Elise:   An immaculate E30 M3: A nice Alpina 8-series: This […]

OzRenaultsport Drive and Dinner – 20 November 2013

An OzRenaultsport forum event was long overdue, so I put the word our for a drive and dinner event, starting at Olympic Park, Homebush and winding up at Newport on the Northern Beaches for pizza. Around 15 cars assembled on Olympic Boulevard, ready for the cruise up to Terry Hills […]

AF’s Clean + Shoot – 20 October 2013

AF’s Clean + Shoot – 20 October 2013

Here at AF, we love stone chips. They’re a sign of proper use; a badge of honour. But there’s still something about a clean car that grabs our attention. It doesn’t have to be concourse standard but giving the old girl a good scrub (using modern, swirl-minimising techniques) lets you […]

The sound of a piano-accordion filled the air, the day […]
