Dunedin SSE meets
« on: January 18, 2015, 07:57:49 PM »
Hey all.

This year i'm aiming to try have at least one cruise meet every single month instead of wimping out in Winter, so will announce the next meet details below this blabbering each time it comes around.

Any type of car at all welcome to attend (or motorbike, van/truck etc), and the only rules are to please hold off on the skids, speeding etc while you're with us. A group of cars is going to attract attention and we don't want that to be negative attention, nor do we want the Police to stop us. Been organising meets for ten or more years now with no trouble from the Police, so want to keep it that way!

The next meet will be mentioned as a reply to this topic, so keep checking back!

Meets are on rain or shine.

Sunday 25th January 2015

Great day, great turnout again. :)

And had some special cars turn up, especially the turbo Jaguar and very rare R32 Autech GT-R

Attendees;
1x V36 Skyline 350GT Type SP sedan
1x R34 Skyline GT sedan
1x R32 Autech GT-R sedan
3x R32 Skyline GTS coupe
1x R31 Skyline Ti sedan
1x Z32 300ZX TwinTurbo
1x Z32 300ZX
1x Toyota Supra Sz
1x Toyota Hiace SuperCustom
1x Toyota Hiace 'vanute'
1x Fiat X-19
1x '66 Mopar
1x Honda Integra
1x 1970's? Jaguar XJ6 Turbo (probably the most powerful car there?)



Just past Mt Cargill


Next cruise on this coming Sunday, the 15th. Meeting at 9:30am at the Dunedin ice stadium carpark, then doing the following;

CRUISE LEAVES AT 10AM SHARP. Please arrive with enough petrol/diesel/electricity/biofuel/jet fuel for the cruise.

Anywho, same as last time - we meet at the ice stadium, head up to North Dunedin, but up Bethunes Gully (Norwood St), along Mt Cargill Road all the way to Waitati. On SH1 for a very short time, until the bottom of the Kilmog, where we turn right onto Coast Road, to eventually head through Karitane etc.

Then back onto SH1 for a while, with a possible quick detour at Waikouaiti on the old SH1 (depends on interest levels). Then back on it till Palmerston, then we take Horse Range Road through Trotters Gorge which may not be nice to drive on at the mo (roadworks?) but it's less boring than the motorway. ;) Which arrives back to SH1 near Moeraki.

Cruise for a wee while longer on SH1 to Waianakarua Road, by the mill house/old Scout camp just before Herbert (Sherbert). Hopefully don't hold up SH1 traffic too much as we wait to turn into that road (no turning lane). Then its through to Kakanui, where we take Magdala St into the town, then Harbour Tc around the outside edge between the town and the ocean, then back onto the road and finish up at Oamaru Harbour.

Then we may find a food source for lunch, and who knows what we'll do after that (up to whoever turns up).

Next cruise: Sunday 31st May
Leaving 10:30am

Cruising to Balclutha, then to Kaka Point, then back to Clutha and maybe finish up at the Kaitangata BMX track.

Hoose keen? ;) Looks like a nice wee drive according to my trip on Google Maps. Will probably head down the coast through Brighton and Taieri Mouth to get to SH1 after we leave Dunners.

That looks quite slow compared to how it feels. Then again, i had no cars in front of me. :twisted:

May end up having shorter/cheaper cruises for the foreseeable future, unless i organise but get a ride with someone. Money will be quite tight for me for a while. :(
