I've just been there, and I'd like to say, I was very impressed.
If you haven't see a LaFerrari, an Enzo, a Testarossa, or maybe a Lamborghini Countach or a Diablo in real life, or maybe interested in a 40's or 50's Rolls Royce Phantom, you should head over there. I've even seen a DeTomaso Pantera, and an XJ220 as well
(funnily they had eastern block oldies, too, some familiar Skoda, Traband, Lada, Polski, Volga and even a couple of Tatra models were there)
The collection is huge. They've hundreds upon hundreds of cars, including some that are for sale (like an R32 Skyline, a Ferrari 360, a couple of E-types...) at the back.
It's been something I meant to do for a while, but I wanted to go with a mate who just had a baby so it was just delayed and delayed...but now I'm thinking I should go back again, the 2 hours was barely enough to gawk myself out.
One negative is that it's very much like a museum, you can't go really up close and in some cases this means you can't easily see the car from all angles. Also it'd be great to be able to open the bonnet of a few of them
Another negative is that it'd be good to see a bit more on some cars - often it's just a brand & model name. Sometimes it's specs as well, and sometimes (the best) there's some history included.
Gents, if anyone is interested - or knows anyone...
My trusty red 2007 380 SX is up for sale as of now, 84k on the odo.
This is the car, old pic but it gives you an idea. The windows are heavily tinted.
Location is central coast.
I thought I'll put it up here and on the ARSE forums first, as it's a good car, it'd be good to go to some nice new owner.
I'll take some pics and in a couple of days I'll put it up on commercial sites.
Forum members get discount on the price.
The only flaw is that the front bumper does not look very nice. It will need a re-spray to restore its glory, altho from 4-5m away it's ok.
Otherwise it has never missed a beat.
Reason...yeah, well, this:
I think these guys heard our pleas! Ultra-wide monitor formats are coming:
Samsung, LG going ultrawide with upcoming 32:9 and 2.4 : 1 displays
Most of the current monitors are 16:9 ( ~ 1.7 : 1 )
I think I'll snatch the 49" version when it comes out
I also hope it's curved, otherwise it'll be useless.

Ok gents, I've installed a new mod to make videos simpler, easier to use - and work w/o flash
All you need to do is post the link to the video - and it works with friggen nearly everything it seems - and it'll convert it nicely to a video.
Example. This ( notice: there are NO TAGS around the link! )
converts into this:
Here's the full doc if interested in what's supported.
We run into a server error on the old hosting, and decided to cut to the chase.
From here on I'm hosting the site on Amazon, and top level admins have (nearly) full access to the server, so we should be able to solve issues much quicker now.
We also have a TS3 server running on this instance, we just need to configure it properly (volunteers needed I guess) - it's at ts3.xgn.com.au
Enjoy, and sorry for the long outage at the worst time
If the program says "you're unable to log in, check your cookie settings", you need to delete your session cookies !
Also, emails were not working (sorry!) this has now been fixed. So if you could not log in nor retrieve your credentials, it's time to try again!
I just love to share NBN speed tests
I'm often getting less than 90 mbps download, but just as often the upload is 37+.
I love the ping, though. It's ridiculously good, all the time, never out of single digits, often in the low singles.
If you think about it...it's around 10MB/s - one 600MB CD in one minute! hehe.
But this is also the problem. You can rack up crazy amounts of downloads in no time. First (half) day for me: 16GB
