    As I understood the announcements, a 2nd prize was awarded if there were more than 8 entrants in a category, so with the sea of T2 bays on offer, 2nd prize to Wayne is an excellent achievement. :)

    As to my workhorse, I'm sure I just ticked the "T3 watercooled" box on the entry form, so not really sure which category it got changed to........:rolleyes:o_O

    Thanks for the explanation Wayne. I didn't even look at the air-cooled side to see category #11, having a radiator in my vehicle......o_O

    So it looks like I was the only one who didn't know, that to enter a water cooled T3, you had to find the category in the air cooled list? :oops:

    Seems a bit confusing for first timers..........:confused:

    It was my first time going to the Nationals and was shocked at the size of it....will definately be going each year from now on!! Think I did about 5 laps just to take it all in. Gave the old girl a cut and polish to try and fit in. [​IMG][​IMG]

    The plate compliments the car. Pretty hectic day, I was parked directly behind you in the yellow 79 Bay.

    Borgey, I came back to that hi-lite a couple of times for another look. Don't worry, it was looking fairly sharp amongst the range of yellow to orange toned busses there on the day.
    I met a few first timers that hadn't been briefed properly on what to expect and were surprised at the size and range of stuff on show. Can't catch everyone is the rule, but stick with a bus long enough and your sure to cross paths with a good few.
