Hey guys,

Sorry it's been so long, what with christmas break and everything, time gets away! Dixie is going great! She's had a few trips to the mechanic and we are now running really well with a full tune up, new radiator core, belts pipes etc! Have also spruced her with a few bits and pieces from Fbodywarehouse & Trans Ams of Florida. They send parts down to Australia so it's great! Am having a great time with her. Not sure how many of you are in Melbourne but hopefully I will have her at the Born in the USA Car Show at Docklands, March 7. Will post some shots soon. Hope you are all driving well!

Hey chaps,

Unfortunately no can do on the 3rd! However I am taking part in the 'Born in the USA car show at Docklands on Sunday the 7th March. Hope to see you there.
Car's running very well. Have tarted her up a bit with some trim from Fbodywarehouse and Trans Am of Florida. Great fun!

Hey guys,
Well the Born in the USA car show was run on the Sunday at Docklands, and the weather held beautifully!! Was a great day with about 80 cars in attendance. I rocked up not knowing anything about car shows! Apparently everything is judged and prizes awarded at the end of the day. And we were picked as one of the top ten cars in show! Kids are now fighting over the trophy! Can't wait to keep fixing her up to go to more!

Found this pic of your car Steve.

Looking good mate, seemed a few cars risked the weather and went along.
Congrats on the prize, hope to see at a few other outings there's a show in 2 weeks in Lilydale a few of us are heading along to if you want to come along and show us Dixie?
Noticed you have club plates on, which club did you join???

Hope to see Dixie soon.

Hey Andrew,
Where did you find that!? Thats me in the orange shirt chatting to an American guy and his partner. As you can see the sun was out and the weather was pretty clear for the day. I was a member of the Chevy Car club before I got the car. They have a Comaro, Trans Am, Firebird subgroup that meets not far from work. It was good fun seeing people get so much enjoyment out of Dixie!
