    Default Car scene in Port Macquarie/ Mid North Coast

    Just wondering if there are many fellow members living in the above area or surrounding towns?

    Whats the modified/ muscle / hotrod sceen like? Many car shows, cruises and racing going on?

    Ill be eventually moving down that way in the future and just wanted to know what its like.

    Cheers

    I moved to melbourne from wauchope (20 minutes from port mac) in 2010. The classic car scene wasn't huge when I left, you'd see the same blokes and their cars parked in the same spot at every event. There was huge mini truck festival at the racecourse in 09 I think it was. The kind where they party all night listening to techno and giving each other golden showers. JDM is very popular in the area. Can't say exactly what's going on as i dont get back very ofte as its too depressing.

    thanks mate
    I was down at Lake Cathie/ Bonny hills on the weekend and saw a few American muscle cars mixed with a couple kingswoods cruising in line down ocean road.

    jdm or mini trucks does not interest me one bit haha.

    can you suggest any good mechanics in port who do rwc's and may turn a blind eye to emission control or lack there of??

    watch out for one particular copper around Kempsey. He's an asshole, he knicked a ol guy for having a coke can in his ute tray, for unsecured load. When he tried to join the local fishing club, he was shown the door. lol.

    He didn't have to,...we got 457 visa immigrants on $30.00 an hour to do that.

    nah mate still love it up here in bris but its time for a sea change and put the handbrake on a little. We have close family friends in Port Mac and has a good relaxing feel to it.
    I pump out approx 250hrs a month of work and Im burning the candle at both ends and I cant keep doing that day in day out.
    The mrs and kids love it down there too.....only downfall is theres no race track down there.

    We're moving down next week.

    Im keeping the VH for sure but I may have issues transferring rego to nsw. Im not sure how tough they are with with mods although my car is safe in every aspect but emissions could be suspect
