Enjoy the TK GTG tomorrow seems like I am missing out on sampling Jerry's cooking!

Perhaps one day there could be a TK GTG in either the Newcastle or Hunter Valley area?

I did attend the GTG at the Ant's Nest a few years ago what a great day!

Drink and three cheers for tomorrow.

Hello Brian sounds like a terrific day!

All that was needed was a Skoda would that be the new cars or the older cars?

Any pics from today's GTG?

Had a great day, and (would you believe it), drove a diesel engined car for the first time in my life!

I would like to express my gratitude to Michel for fulfilling his inimitable role as our host, a role he fills so splendidly and usual aplomb - in other words, he is a great host and makes us feel so welcome.

Also a big thank you to Jerry - really, one can't think of a more dedicated person in preparing the food and making sure that none of us went hungry. Yes, I am ever so grateful, but may I ask that our next gtg is round about September or October - before Christmas. Let's work towards this new goal to I would like to thank everyone that came along to make it such a pleasant aftenoon. Regards. Styria

There was 120 imported - one driven to destruction in the outback during testing, 2 destroyed by the government during side/front/rear impact testing, leaving 117 for sale, but I dare say, only a handful at most will have survived. Original owner was 46 when he bought it, and kept it until January 1995, when he was 81. Second owner died in 2015, so he had it for 20 years. 3rd owner only 18 months, and again, health issues forced the sale. Hope this is not contagious !

Car is complete with original manuals, tool kit, jack, crank handle, original Skoda branded rubber mats, full service history (oil changes every 1,000 miles) and is showing 69,600 miles from new.

I contacted Peter Warren Skoda today and they are going to put it on display for a couple of months, in exchange for an oil change.
