Keith, you have a good eye for accessories.
A few years ago my son went off to our famous Bathurst 1000 armed with a camera, but came back with photos mainly of himself with arms around the various advertising, promotion, and ra-ra girls.
I'm sure you have good reasons for moving, Tim, but I'm sad to see you leave Australia. There are probably more car enthusiasts, interesting cars, and all sorts of car groups and activities compared to Australia, if you can survive the weather.
Sorry to hear of yet more bad news for Christchurch.
My cousin, Mark Veitch, lives in ChCh but he and his family are OK. Morale must be very low at this time. Best wishes, and hope this is the last serious quake for a long time.
