How could I say anything else but.........Fantastic!.........your editing skills keep getting better & better Keith.

The bit youve got master now is immerse yourself in the event with your own vehicles & shoot & interview at the same time.

Speaking of, how about a bit on Vimeo of your driving in a Cab12???

Thats providing the filming wasnt too crappy. The bloke on the camera was a novice to say the least.

Excellent. Looks like a good time was had by all. First time I see a right-hand drive M151, BTW - a Japanese copy?

Talking Corowa 2011 The Year of the Auto Electrician

Whilst the excitement of this years event is just starting to drop off, I think now is the best time to start the ball rolling for next year. Although the theme is officially the Year of the Pommie Vehicle, I firmly believe that it will become affectionately known as the Year of the Auto Electrician. Lets be honest, how often do we celebrate Mr Lucas & his wiring wonders......

The levity aside gentlemen, whilst you are all still a bit pumped up from this years event, now is the time to start planning, prepping and saving up the sheckles to get your vehicle there for 2011.

After having spoken to a few people over the Corowa weekend, here's what we may be seeing next year. In no specific order:

Saladin;
Saracen;
CVR(W);
CVR(T);
Ferrets;
Humber 1 tons;
Land Rovers (lots of);
Vickers Lt Tank;
Austin Champs (again, lots of);
M3 Stuart (not pommie I know);
Carriers (again not pommie, give me a break); and
a Matilda & Centurion if they can win the lottery to pay for the transport (so maybe not)......

You have to admit, that is a pretty good starting list. It would be awesome if they all got there too. Although I can fully understand if people or vehicles can't get there due to transport costs. Trucking a vehicle a thousand K round trip just for one show is something our friends from the motherland probably cannot grasp let alone appreciate. This would equate to transport costs alone almost matching the vehicles value in some instances.

Anyway gentlemen, I shall see you there hopefully.

Default Year of the oil leak

Lord Lucas, Prince of Darkness...

I think we may possibly also see something very exciting in the shape of a Guy Quad Ant too.
How about a British Carrier, or a Lloyd?
There are some British staff cars we've seen before, also BSA and other motorcycles.
We've also seen a Daimler Dingo from South Australia, Bedfords, maybe an Austin or two... I'm sure others will be able to add more too.

Will the Bandiana Crew be bringing some of their stuff Ian? Are you still involved with Bandiana as much as you were?

Ive heard our wonderful Prime Minister has sliced their budget by 65% . So Im guessing thats enough to crush any displays at Corowa by the Museums crew. Not to mention Morale.

In any case I hope your still involved over there. It is truly an amazing and special place.

The guys over there are always willing to give up time to help some poor fool having trouble wiring up his Cab 12.

Default Lucas inspired but worse.

One day I was asked to investigate what was wrong with a computer, this was back in the 286/386 days. The brand "Amstrad" was new to me and the female owner was very nervous about anything I did to it.
When the usual DOS commands wouldn't work with an operating system that claimed to be DOS 3.3, I said I did not understand what was going on.
She said "oh, you've got to use Amstrad commands and pulled out a book
an inch thick!!!
After studying this for a while, I suggested she take the thing back to the
bloke she had bought it off and get him to untangle it.

When I got home, I phoned a bloke who was very into computers (pre-internet days) and asked him what the heck this Amstrad thing was supposed to be, the answer was "The Poms attempt at knocking off an IBM compatible".

Within a year or 2 Amstrad had gone bust and the following joke did the rounds:
Question: "Why did the Poms get out of making computers?"
Answer: "Because they could never figure out a way to make them leak oil!"

So, although they didn't leak oil, the electricity did get confused inside them, perhaps Lucas had a hand in their design?

I own a Ferret - it leaks oil. Everything is as it should be.

Default Oil Leaks

You guys should know pommie stuff doesn't leak oil. It just marks it's territory.

Thanks Tony. Dave, Scotty & myself are still at the Museum but we, like other Govt Departments are checking the purse strings.

We were at Corowa this year, just not in an official capcity. Just gave us more of an opportunity to be social over the rim of a glass.

We'll be there as visitors again next year. Fuses, wire & multi meter in hand.

Hi Ian

Maybe a Guess speaker on the mystical Lucas Electronics might be in order.

It was good to catch up at the swap meet

[QUOTE=Jan Thompson;127824]Can anyone help with these requests?

Names of people who attended from overseas, where they live and their connection with military vehicles.

Hi Jan,
I had a great time at Corowa and was pleased to meet you. It's the POM Dave Boocock from West Yorkshire, England. I have owned my Jeep 27 years and WDM20 for 21 years and once part owned a C15.
I'm looking forward to a return visit, when the exchange rate is a bit better
Regards,
Dave

Default Catch Up

Tim, it was great to see you on the Saturday too. If the offer for a drive next year is still open, I'll definately take it up. Shame there wasn't any more time on the Saturday to have more of a yarn. My kids were getting a bit hot & impatient by the end of the day.

I say let the Lucas jokes begin.....

Did you know Lucas invented the intermittent wiper.

Think about it.........

The photo session did drag out and it was rather hot and sunny, so I am
a bit hesitant to suggest this, but how about next time we do it a bit
different?

Get all those wanting to take a pic lined up and organised. Then one of them
can go "Hats off 3, 2, 1 - now". Take the pics and then "Hats on".

Those of us with less than a full head of hair won't be willing to stand hatless
for too long, but it will make for a much clearer photo.

Regards
Doug

Default Hatless

Yes it did cause some of us to burn our scones. Been trying from the little pic to identify people - have some but the size and hats have somewhat defeated me. Apologies to those mis-or not identified.

Can anyone add names please? (Of course you can!).

There has been some great publicity on Year of the Jeep. The May and June editions of Jeep Action Australia have had some stories. The July edition of 4X4 Australia is now out and Ron Moon has done a 6 page article with a number of photos. The Pathfinder Magazine is about to be released and will have a story and photos. Military Machines International is due to have a story within the next few months.
