The 49 MG is similiar too they are probably the prettiest english cars ever made along with the 49 riley and early Jags I had a Mark 1 3.4 jag (smaller and more rounded )just like me in 1968 for around two years it caught on fire in canning Hwy applecross the electric choke was faulty thems are the breaks I guess a gas guzzler plus
Hi Kaybees thanks for posting this.. I recognise the seller k52c52... prompts me to issue this.....
I have had dealings with this ebay shonkster before.. I got stung on a deal with a sunbeam mixmaster. I won the item fair and square. sent em the money and that was the last i heard of em. I complained to ebay and ebay expelled them. They look like they have been allowed back His wife is just as ruthless as he is. be warey.. very warey.
So.. what has happened to the 2010 nats thread.. Mildura sounds good Here is a few parks to check out.
I even found the siesta caravan park has a train track up against the fence. Ideal for those that have a track running through thier front yard and are feeling a little homesick while they are on holidays ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
Mildura sounds good. As an Adelaidian (with some spare time at the moment) I am happy to go on a reccy and check out caravan parks and have a chat to managers if that were useful. I'd camp overnight, take photos, check out wineries......... I haven't been there for years. Anyway I'm happy to help out by doing the above or anything else. Cheers M
Thats the sort of enthusiasm i was talking about. It wouldn't be a bad mission either. Seeing great parts of Oz while on a fact finding mission. Staying overnight and Actually sticking your head in the gate at different van parks and taking a few notes/photos on the good and bad points.
Unfortunately it will be hard to give the managers exact numbers but at least see what can be done for us in the way of a group discount.
Hows this for a thought !!!!!! in ten years when Cobber is eighty
We ring up and say Excuse me Maam!!Can we book six hundred sites for our next Vintage Van Nationals We need thirty buses to visit the vineyards 45 boats to take a run up the murray and can we book 1200 for dinner at the pub can we book a skimpy to jump out of the Cake big enough for 1200 you think your heart could take it Cobber ;D ;D ;D
If theres a train running any where near the Caravan park that is chosen for the next Nats Then I will do a Biggles and come with the Grand Pooh bah fly in stay in a chalet then fly home Me and Trains at night are not in the same equasion everytime we go to Penrith the only place to stay is the Emu plains Caravan park man power lines down the middle and Town side of the perimeter a trainline
Yes, camping by trainline not good. Reminds me of West Beach Cvan Park in Adelaide, right under the airport flight path and on the beach in the 'windy city' - beautiful place but between the wind and the planes
But, I have an old remedy..............6 or 7 'sherbets' before retiring of an evening, you won't hear a train. Until the 5am goods train, then that rumbles through the dull ache in your head..............hang on that remedy doesn't work that well for trains
Thanks for putting all the Mildura Parks on the forum.
Mildura sounds great, I am a BIG 4 tragic, having lived in one for the past 15 months.......but as you've shown there are many more nice ones as well.
I love trains and planes and could think of nothing better than hearing a 60 carriage freight train shunting past the park at 3am ;D But the bottom line is we've got to have trees, shade and facilities nearby and be together "as a group" of course.
I cant wait to head south down the Stuart again, but this time I will take more time to enjoy the sights as I "Meander to Mildura" 2010.
"Life's a hoot with a vintage van hang'n off ya ute..."
Hi all, Just to throw another place into the mix.....a lady we just met in the Eden Caravan Park spoke highly of the Tanunda Caravan Park......she was there over the Australia Day weekend and there was a hotrod meet there....she says that that particular park is very accommodating when it comes to groups and there is a big grassed area that they reserve for group bookings....
This is all hearsay from a third party, so perhaps marshy74 can include Tanunda in his reccy
Just a thought
Alcohol may not solve your problems, but neither will water or milk
Hi all we have stayed in the Tanunda caravan park during the Cruise on Tanunda weekend and it is excellent. They are very accomodating when it comes to groups etc.Tanunda and regions is certainly a lovely area with wineries and one of the largest private Chev. collections I have seen. Certainly worth consideration. regards Larry W
