Yep the AWD doesnt just make our Subies handle better, it makes them so much safer!

Great so far

Some more pics during the interlude.
Everyone was getting into it, this is what made me decide to get some stickers made up.
The old site motto "Doin' It In The Dirt"

Geez I remember some of those Forry's

The silver one with the angle wings (top left) has been owned by a few members on here
It was first owned by goraiko, who I think sold it to Cheyne_r who then sold it to Hux.
I haven't seen or heard from these guys in a while though

The red Forry I think was owned by onebob, but not 100% sure.

I'm not sure about the others, but the white one & especially the green one seem familiar

Might I also say, I'm really enjoying this thread so far, its fantastic
I really like the "doing it in the dirt" pic too, it's a beauty
If it's ok with you, I'd love to make a banner out if it, as long as it's ok with you that is

Regards
Mr Turbo

Absolutely terrific stuff, Tony.

Wonderful that you can put in the effort to extract this stuff. I, for one, understand how much finger work is involved in this sort of exercise!

Keep it coming, mate - I'm rapt .

A week before i met up with Beigewagon and still waiting on Bullbar and new tyres, i decided i would take a very fast punt along the Acheron Way, just going up the mountain on an icy tar road was fun in itself. It was late August and bitterly cold, mud, wet, slippery, big moments, and the ever growing thought that the tyres wouldnt get me to Marysville.

Again the car exceeded expectations and gave me a chance to devise my own version of the Scandanavian flick, albeit in an AWD car, and it sure gave me some heart stopping moments, but you never know unless you give it a go.






Nice recovery after a bit of an off, again AWD pulled me out of a huge slide

Even time to try a creek crossing


I have driven this road heaps of times, and at night going very fast but my most memorable was my 11yo niece saying to me on a very wet day "Lets Rally Uncle Tony", when we got to the end of the Acheron Way her door was open and out went her lunch no more Rally for her after that.

Shooting in 35mm you really had to save your shots, i took more up in here
if i find them i will post them.
