I'll scan some of mine, got boxes full of them! Very Happy We use to go and end up taking a couple of hundred pics and spent the next 6 months getting them developed. Laughing The Summernats from the late 80's, early 90's where my favourites after that it started to turn to sh1t I think. Crying or Very sad

you guys should have been there for the first 6 (88 - 93)

there was non stop cruising 24/7 up and down northbourne
at the first one i had a tunnel rammed HZ GTS with a full cage, drop tank and bug catcher
i repainted it just before and we didnt refit the inner guards and the day we got there i pulled the bonnet off and only put it back on 4 days later to go home - didnt get hassled once

the supercruise down northbourne was the nuts - i wasted a new set of tyres at the first one going from natex to civic

there were people 10 deep on the main strip and you had to stop every 20 feet to recover from the photo flashes
there must be 1000 pics of my old car hidden in photo albums in canberra

December 88, or Summernats 89 was my first one, went over on a bus, stayed at a mates parents place in Queanbeyan and his dad dropped us off on Northborne Ave of a night time around 8.30pm. He'd come back at 11.30pm when he finished work and pick us up, endless cars cruising by, we were only 14 and it was a huge eye openner.
Missed the next one and was back in '91 and most of them since but the early ones were the best, less commercialised, less dickheads, and there seemed to be a heap less hassles, fights and everyone there seemed to be car people not ar5eholes who just go to get drunk and hassle women.
Watching cars like Beauchamps VL and Cannon's Torana cruise Northborne was something I'll never forget, the site and sound was sweet as!
Cheers Rob

They were awesome times in the early days of the Nats, I wonder what it is like now? Any body been in the last few years?

Here is a pic on a different style, From the Bridgestone international in Kempsey from the late 80's



Unfortunately it is the only pic i have of them. Pretty cool old girls.

At the 89/90 Summernats I remember an early Cortina (the ones with the round tailights).I think
it was cream or beige,standard body,stock interior with vinyl bench seats cheese cutter stock
rims with hub caps.It looked like grandad's restored car but if you looked inside there was a B&M
shifter and under the bonnet was a big block.Any one remember this one?

we have been to all of them and have noticed the difference between the old and the new especially in the pricing.northbourne ave cruising days and nights were excellent, we have stayed at the same lodge on northbourne ave for the last 20 years and it has a really good balcony for watching the cruising except the trees have grown up.thanx wizard

if it's the one im thinking of it was white with red trim and it was a cortina shifte with a 460
the main thing was the pea shooter exhaust that hid the huge dump pipe
im pretty sure i have a pic of it - ill check

This rod was as angry as anything, as he was backing up it had a massive loping idle and would turn the tyres in the dirt as it lumped. I guess the blower overdriven.



Nice tonner.





And another bloody Ford for Rat Bag Very Happy
