Who is pulling out their Old Holden for Australia Day?

My HT will get a run down to Scotts Head or Grassy Head this year to take the kids for a swim and a picnic. I WILL put my 60's mal on the roof racks and push the kids in on a few little waves.
No, I won't put those $2 chinese reject shop aussie flags all over the door jambs because a classic aussie Holden does not need overstating the obvious OR a "LOOK AT ME!, LOOK AT ME" try hard / wanker claim. (But that's just me and my thoughts guys.)

An old Holden with a mal on the roof racks is what Australia and Australia Day is all about. It doesn't need flags.
Hope you have a great day.
Has the earth been moving for you up there lately?
All my little cars had a race around in their cabinets yesterday.

Old is good.

yeah its been pretty constant. Its been felt as far south as Port as far as I know and there have been about 10 tremors so far. The Biggest was off Nambucca Yesterday around 1:30pm. I was having lunch at the Valla Tavern with some workmates and we heard and felt that one. 4.2 on the richter scale. Everyone cheered (around 30 people) and went straight back to eating their lunch.

Yes, earthquakes.
I'm at Laurieton. My daughter was at home studying yesterday and felt it, the water in the glass on her desk jumped aound a fair bit.
The local SES bookface page had a link to the government agency that monitors earthquakes and it said we've had 24 in the last few days, mostly very small.
Some were even supposed to have been felt as far south as Al surfwagens area.
Hopefully it's the last of them.

So I put up a story and you put up exactly the same story half an hour later just to tell me I'm a wanker or try hard because I'm going to put an Aussie flag on my aerial(I knew the police where out but not the fun police)?,and it's a small one at that.Well mate most flags now are made in China so it doesn't really matter where you get them.If I want to put a flag on my car and join in the fun I can ,it's not as if I'm putting them all over it like a try hard wanker that you seem to think I am from my ORIGINAL story!...

I'm sure he meant the bogans and half wits in their old Magnas and Excels that when he made that comment.
You can buy proudly Australian made flags online: http://www.australia...
This is one of a few Australian companies that make flags and banners.
The sad thing is, none of their products are ever sold in our shops because the major retailers are not interested in paying for quality items. They would rather sell us cheap Chinese rubbish because the profit margins are much higher in cheap rubbish.
Might be worth saving the link for next year.

Nothing wrong with a Magna. Or an Excel really. Both of them seem to go forever.
The only thing is, around here they are driven by the druggies and ferals.

My ol girl is in the naughty corner at the moment and wont be getting taken out today, she has developed a miss when she is warm that i cant rack down.
Usually do the Ormiston Aussie day cruise, great day open to all cars, usually get over 500 meet up for a free council breaky and a show and shine then split into 3 or 4 groups and do an hour or so long cruise around the local area each group taking a different route. then meet up at a pub for lunch. the routes allow stopping at all the major local parks etc so usually heaps of kids and oldies alike get to see 100 or more old cars cruise by whhile there having there aussie day barbies. not unheard of for people to line the streets and cheer and wave etc as ya go past. people tooting horns waving flags etc, its like a parade at times.

and yes i usually throw a cheap chinese flag or 2 on plastic sticks on top of the windows so they flutter around , but i also have a ridgy didge aussie made one that gets draped over the seat

everything is made in china these days cant escape it, ya dont not watch aussie TV shows cos ya TV is made in china LOL

I have a full length "Eureka stockade flag across the back seat.
Yes there made in china to
BUT ive served for my country (11 years ADF)
As long as its an "Australian Flag" i dont care were its made, I think I deserve the right to fly it.

I have 2 Eureka Stockade flags, in the the front garage that drops down as the garage door raises and one in the "old holden" garage. I've just bought 2 Aussie made Australian flags to go with the Eureka flags. I'll hang one aussie flag on the other garage door so when it raises, the aussie flag will drop down. Call me a bogan, I don't give a s**t. I don't need to please anyone.

ALHT, I was at Scotts Head today. I'm only just checking out the posts now (been off line a few days). We coulda hooked up for a meet and greet. I'm staying at sister in laws at Nambucca. How ironic, you mighta noticed our camp on the beach... we had the cheap a&@e chink Aussie flag flying(but I got it free with my 30 block of Tooheys). And just like Keith, I didn't give a toss if I looked like a bogon as I had on my Aussie flag boardies, Aussie flag singlet, Aussie flag sombrero, Aussie flag stubby cooler and Aussie flag thongs.
