Hampton Pub run is one that I haven’t gone
on yet, so I was looking forward to this one.
We left home at the crack of dawn and met
Angelo at his place. His newly acquired XT
GT would not kick over due to a flat battery.
So quickly I jumped started him and off we
went to the meeting point at Glenbrook.
drive to Glenbrook was a leisurely cruise
and once we got to the meeting point we realised
that we missed the convoy. So we powered on
battling with the Sunday drivers and road
works. We finally caught up with the club
and just as I pulled up I noticed my toppie
stuck in third gear. Luckily for me Tim S
was kind enough to lend me his jack and I
got under the car with a 9/16 spanner and
freed the linkage.
drove on to Lithgow where unfortunately a
BA GT seemed to of lost a bit of water. We
got to the second meeting point and Lithgow
where we parked our cars. Had a chat to the
usual suspects and checked out the cars. There
was an assortment of the usual Falcon GT’s
and vintage cars which was good to see.
decided to take off and give the next stop
at Hampton Pub a miss. A certain tough Polar
White XT GT left in a puff of smoke and as
always was very impressive. The person will
be left nameless as this point, however claims
his foot slipped. We jumped in the XT GT and
when I turned into the main street I saw a
few of the boys gesturing to give the XT a
squirt. I obliged with a second and third
stopped off at Macca’s had some quality burgers
then headed back home. Once again this was
a fantastic day out with Family and friends.
next time take care.
