   Dyno Day  - Aussie Car Loans - Underwood

 

 

On the Saturday before Dyno day I had six people pull out, this was a little disheartening for me as I needed numbers to make this event happen and at such short notice I was committed to continue.

Sunday morning arrived with the weather looking ominous but we were determined to make the best of the day.  Craig and Elaine turned up bright and late.  Craig and I left the girls to make lunches and headed to the Aussie Car Loans head office to set up.

On our arrival we met Mike and Allen at the gates.  As we started setting up the people began arriving, 14 Corvettes and 1 Camero plus 1 Gemini in total.

I Had my numbers, thanks to Big Ern  for hearing my plight and turning up even thugh he was in the bad books with Sal and to my son Corey as he had been out all night and did not want to come.

Aaron  put his hand up to be the first and as the guys running the Dyno had no idea how to strap a Vette to the machine Mike stepped in and took on the responsibility - we gave it a go and it didn't come off so I think we done a pretty darn good job.  This become Mike and my job for the day and I got a lot of exhaust pipe burns.

Thanks to Laurie for racing down to super cheap and getting a couple of shackles.  We proceeded from there and at about the half way mark we stopped for lunch. Trevors Camaro was the last before lunch and it lost the belts and threw up all its water not a good result, but our only casualty for the day and had to go home on a tow truck.

The girls did a great job with lunch and there was plenty to go around, thanks to Elaine, Pauline and Jayne with an extra big thanks to Elaine she made the morning tea as well thumbs up.

Thanks Aaron for the pics and vids.  Thanks to all attended and helped I hope you all had as good as day as me it was one to remember everything went well A big  THANKS to Aussie Joe and Aussie Car Loans for letting us hold the event on his premises and sponsoring our day.
