There might be some life left in the oily one?

Only 100 miles away, Stef.  We'll see what the bidding does :)

100 miles? Burt Munroe would get there and back whilst the latest batch of pistons were cooling!

I'm glad I don't live in New Zealand and Thank God they're not twins.  Now that would be a lot of pressure to immigrate.

Nice find.  Any guesses where it'll end next Thursday?

I said guesses.

Loved the Movie!

Went to NZ couple of years back to shoot.  Drove 100 Miles and nearly drove off the far end of the north Island when we started half way up !   :D
Shooting this girl on a beach and she suggests this other fabulous beach she knows. I asked where it is and she pulls out her phone and points to a map on the other side of the country.  I said how long will that take to get there thinking it's out of the question?  Other girl said Oh, at this time of day their might be some traffic so could take 40 Minutes.
WTF??

I showed them a map of oz and where I live and my Dad lives and told them it takes 4 hours on the highway at speeds they aren't allowed to do to cover this distance you couldn't even see on a full size map.

It was a nice beach but I couldn't get over how tiny the place is.

Check out Ford v Ferrari, Glort, same thing, bigger budget, well worth the watch, then google the Brit driver (Ken Miles?) same size balls!
