I would like to congratulate Joe, Alfred, AlexD and everyone who contributed their efforts in making PUB2015 memorable for me and everyone.
The friendship extended to me was give freely and I felt part of a large family.
There were so many discussions with new friends from all around the globe.
It was great to meet Garry from Oz again.
I absorbed as much knowledge as was available like a new sponge.
Hopefully I will make it to the next Tech session in the USA wherever it is held.
ATM I am in NYC for a few more days.
When I return to OZ I will organize my pics and add a couple to this post.

Ron drove all the way from Winnipeg Manitoba and back again with his car on a trailer just to be at PUB. At the very least, he deserves the '' greatest effort to get there '' award with a very close second going to our friends from down under. While Ron and I were test driving his car on Sunday, he told it was his birthday that day.  :) :) :) :)

Not jet as far as I know. I think it may only appear in the next Pagoda World issue along with the story about this years PUP event.

Cheers,

Dieter

Johan,
Beautiful photos... The engine bay of that blue car in your second photo is nice. Whose car was that? Do you (or anyone else) know it's color code?

Thanks for sharing your photos!

I believe the blue car is one of Gernold's creations.  Hard to tell without seeing the interior.

I could be mistaken but I think that car is owned by Stephen Brooks.

Tom you are correct, it is the car from Stephan B. my car is next to his and has the same colour code as mine. We talked about our cars as being twins :) I only wish my engine bay was as clean as his. Stephan had his engine bay detailed at Bud's he and I talked about this.

The engine bay in the second photo that Johan posted is from Stephan B. Car, his car has the same color code as mine it is 903 H (his and my car were parked side by side near the tent on Saturday).
