One cloudy Sunday in a Sprite

Range Road, heading up the hill, really wishing I had an extra 20hp…

Final count for 2011.

  • 49 trips,
  • 6734miles, or 10,774 km.
  • Number of times broken down on the side of the road?  3
  • Amount of money spent on maintenance….pass
  • Average fuel consumption? don’t care
  • Best moment…chasing down John Tran outside Lobethal.
  • Worst moment…missing out on Fruchocs this year in the Bay to Birdwood showbag

One day in the Life of a Sprite

This snap was taken somewhere plunging down Pound Road near Montacute one November morning. It’s one of those roads that rewards the Sprite driver, sweeping gently and inevitably downhill, running close to embankments, and ignoring the drop offs – until you remember that you have four drum brakes the size of nut bowls, and you haven’t updated your Will in years!

Sprouting Forth – Dec 2011

Here is the club magazine for December 2011

Special thanks to Patrick for his hard work in making the changes to the format of the magazine!

The club magazine can also be accessed from the members area of the site – this will soon be locked down so you can only access it if you have a current membership and therefore be able to log into the website.

You will need the Adobe PDF reader or the plugin for your browser to read this document



Kym Ninnes will have copies for sale of his book at the meeting on 5 December.

It is the story of his trip around Australia in his Clementé clubman. It’s a good bit of Australiana, adventure, travel, dreams and cars.  It is a great read and would make an ideal Christmas present especially for friends overseas. It comprises 170 pages, full colour with lots of photos and maps. It costs $29.95  or it can be ordered over the internet through where it costs an additional $3.50 p&h. I’ve attached a couple of pages to give you an idea of what it is like.
