Heaps of FTOs in Kingston, gotta contact them

Post by Brandto » Sat Feb 27, 2010 7:15 pm

Hello fellow Tassie FTOwners, I've just joined up to FTO Club of Aust and I live in Kingston in southern Tas.

Hey, Kingston must be the hot spot for FTOwners in southern Tassie because I was driving from Kingston to Margate yesterday, say, 10 or 15 Ks i guess, and I saw two other FTOs, a red one and a black one (mine's a silver GPX).

That's 3 FTOs on the road within a few clicks of each other, plus there's the blue one that's often parked up near the Woolies servo at Kingston Town and I know there is at least another silver GPX in the Kingston area, so that makes 5 FTOs in the one neighbourhood. :thumleft:

Oh, and there was a white Version R sold by Performance Autos in Hobart a few years ago.

I've had my GPX for about seven years and only just recently discovered this website/club, so I guess I'm not the only FTOwner in Tas who was not a member. What can we do to let them know about us (and hook up for a group cruise)? Did I see something in this forum about stickers? Maybe I should get some and stick 'em under the wipers any time I see a parked FTO. Just a thought.

Cheers, Brandto :)

Good to see you made it on to the site.

Tassie FTOwners meeting up, maybe

Post by Brandto » Wed Mar 03, 2010 6:24 pm

Cool, Yeah, lets see if we can build some interest, guess it boils down to approaching other FTOwners to guage interest. I'd really love a meet and drive for as many as possible starting at, say Oatlands or Ross and do a loop of interst around some backroads or something. Just a thought.

Maybe plan a few weeks before and lock-in a date/time. Weekends best?

If anyone else is interested, please add yourself to the list,
Cheers :D

Maybe you need to get a hold of bennoz and get some flyers to put on thier windows ;)

Cool. Now we're getting some traction! There's a newbie signed on in Launceston in past couple of days and he also wants to get cruising.

I think your white FTO gets a mention in the Spotted forum, posted by a Vic tourist who may have seen you driving up Sandy Bay Rd in Jan or Feb.

Anyway, I hope to get a story into the Mercury and Kingston Chronicle about the search for Tassie FTO Hot Spot. I'm hoping a couple of the blokes up north can get in on the act and we'll get the Examiner and/or Advocate to cover it too. If there's enough of us, maybe some cruises can really get happening.

Hey, just to have a heap of FTOs go parking in public somewhere would be a buzz. please keep in touch.
Cheers, Brandt

hey,

I am really keen to catch up with fto owners, as well as my flatmate ryno, who just recently purchased a white GPVR.

When ever we can organise something that would be great even if its a small catch up and we meet at cambelltown for a coffee as its kinda close to each major town.

catch ya,

scotty

Cool, I work at the Mercury in Hobart and hope to soon have the paper do a story on the search for Tassie's FTO Hot Spot.
Would you mind the Examiner getting in touch with you from a Launceston angle?

There is a bloke in Sandy Bay who is nominating that as the FTO Hot Spot. I nominate Kingborough (Kingston region) and then of course . . . there's Launceston.

I think this idea has legs. Will keep you posted.

Cheers, Brandt
