Apologies for Inactivity

...I've been on holiday in the United States for the last few weeks.

For any aussies reading this, congratulations on your Holden / Pontiac G8 GT. I took this one as a hire car whilst there and it was a great drive.

I guess I've got some more digging to do now!

haha yes, the good old Monaro.

Excellent down the straight, excellent sideways around corners. Not so practical on fuel :D

Good to see them getting used over there :)

Is the comment above mine really blog spam for a gardening company?!

Anyhow, I thought you and your readers might find this interesting (something to keep us going until you can start digging again at least!)


Exciting stuff :)

Can I ask which company you hired it with?
I'm in the middle of planning a trip going from LA and back taking in San Francisco, Yosemite, Death Valley, Vegas and the Grand Canyon. Whilst I'm planning on hiring a motorhome for the trip I don't really fancy taking one into downtown LA and the public transport options are very limited, so it looks like a car for the first couple of days is the way to go and I may as well have something interesting :)

@ Wibble

I got the car from Alamo. I'd actually been looking at the Dodge Charger, but the rep said that I would have been disappointed with that, and assured me that the G8 beat the Dodge in every respect. I'd definitely hire one again.

Thanks, was considering a Mustang, but as far as I can tell Avis, Hertz etc only do the v6 ones and I'd rather go the whole hog and have a v8 :)
Good luck with digging the tunnel entrance out.

Its not a Monaro, they were sold as the Pontiac GTO. Its actually a VE SS Commodore with an ugly yank front end tacked on. The SS part is especially appropriate for this blog
