Hi everyone. I met Carl in person yesterday and spent a little bit of time looking over his SVX (and solitary Vortex) collection and enjoying his stories.

Carl very generously invited us back for a BBQ at his place and suggested that other SVX owners should make a day of it.

So I'm proposing a road trip from Auckland (or wherever you are) to Rotorua for a BBQ at Carl's place. There is loads of parking off the road and plenty of interesting cars to look over.

I have started a Doodle poll here : http://doodle.com/q9vbki28dwv89ime#table

Please use the poll to indicate which days you're available. Try to tick as many days as possible. In about a week we can take a look at the poll and settle on a firm day.

If the lead up to xmas is too busy then we could look at doing something in early January.

Shane

Great to see a fellow Kiwi on the forum! Are there many others out there? Did you get the mini meet together?
Cheers
John

Yes, this mini meet when ahead.

I even managed a special surprise guest in the form of Adam Poulopolous.
Adam was Managing Director of Subaru NZ during the era that SVX's were first imported.
He is also the first owner of my daily driver SVX.

Adam came along to the BBQ at Carl's place and shared some entertaining stories about running Subaru NZ in the mid/late 1980's.

There were about six of us who attended.
Most of that crowd hang out in another forum.

You're welcome to contact me direct. Send a PM to get my email address or just google my Username. I have a .com, so am not that hard to find.

cheers, Shane
