Ok, so late posting, the annual meet is this weekend! This year we're up in Ballina on the north coast of NSW. It's a lovely location, not that I've been there, but a quick Google shows off a nice section of the coastline.

This years trip is around a 1334 klm (829 mile) round trip, or about 7.5 hour trip one way, + rest stops.

My 'reek is off the road, so I'll be taking the Camry on it's last long road trip. I've gone and bought myself a brand new car, but in my usual style, I must have started arranging it a week too late as it arrives next tuesday. Bummer. Would have been an awesome cruise to break the car in. I'm getting a Toyota 86 GT. Starting to think I like impractical cars with Subaru engines that aren't themselves Subaru. lol

Of course, I'll take plenty of photos, and according to Google, the weather forecast is for friday to be mostly sunny, but the weekend clear and sunny with a maximum of 26* C (78* F) Should be an awesome weekend!

:D

Sounds like an awesome weekend looming, have a great time.
Weather sounds about the same as the Costa del Sol so should be nice, not too hot.
I wonder why it is that despite 12 months notice many of our cars are always 'off road' when it comes to THE annual event?

Ok people!!

After getting home last night and soaking for a long time in the bath (nice case of a bad sunburn), I felt completely zonked out. The Ballina Boys (and they're amazing Bosses!! http://eurekacarclub.com.au/forum/Smileys/default/wink.gif) put on an amazing meet. So I went to bed early and only now have uploaded photos If you missed out, you missed out!!

So, lets share the love, and show those poor people what they missed out on.

This was the meet that broke my PhotoBucket account, it got too full! Over 2 gig of car photos, and mainly Eurekas! So I upgraded, and now have a paid PhotoBucket account.

I did take some videos with my digital camera, and they look ok on the camera and computer, but so so good once on PhotoBucket. I might try YouTube later. And the battery in my camera went flat on the beach, so I took a few more photos with my phone, which I've yet to get off the phone. They'll be posted here of course.

Fantastic. Great cars, great weather and a great venue. The slightly tatty black car looks identical to an ADD Mk1 Nova, must be a very early example.

CyCo

It's actually a very tatty car, but as you guys know, they're very photogenic. It was only just registered before the meet, the thursday to be precise. It is what we call a Sport, only 80 at most were made. That might actually be 60. So yeah, an early example.

That photo of people working on it? The owner had put exhaust wrap on the exhaust, and it smoked like a chimney stack. They ended up removing it, and a small portion of fiberglass from the rear valance!!

Ok, so, when we were on the beach, I had the poor timing of having the battery in my digital camera go flat. And I don't have a spare. I'll either fix that or wait until I get a new camera and make sure I get an extra battery for that one. So I took a few photos using the camera on my phone. Now where near as good as a proper digital camera, but still ok. I only just got them uploaded to my PhotoBucket account.

This was the extent of the photos I took at the beach. I was well on the way to baking, and retreated to the shade of a large quadbike driven by Davids boss, Helen. At least it was out of the direct sun, but I was still copping the reflected glare from the surf & the beach.

Eurekas make great looking beach cars - and of course are essentially descended from the beach buggy!

The white car doesn't appear to have a windscreen wiper - is it registered in Alice Springs or something???

Great photos, even from a cameraphone :D

Nicely spotted. For years it didn't run with a roof at all! Had a home spun version of a 'freedom machine' version of the Eureka. Think just the windscreen surround part of the roof. But this one was built with metal rods from memory. So fair weather car, no roof, no windscreen wipers. And that particular car is owned by one of the guys who organized this years meet, he lives in Ballina. In fact, he lives just 6 klm up the road from these shots.
