Trying something different, this cruise on Saturday afternoon / evening allowed people to carry out normal Saturday business, be it shopping or sport ing activities and still have a cruise.

We met at the Newton shopping centre at 3.15, in a big puddle that wasn’t there the we ek before. The weather looked threatening but thankfully the rain stayed away.

10 cars set off and cruised up Gorge road pass ing the upside down car and on to Cuddly Creek, Lobethal, Woodside and Narine. Here we joined the Old Princess Highway, and followed the road back to Adelaide used by everyone before the freeway way built. We passed through Little h ampton, Totness, Hahndorf and Stirling before joining the freeway for a short time as the old road doesn’t exist now . Taking the Eagle on The Hill turn off we e xperienced the old treacherous (fun in a Ford) ride down to the Devil’s Elbow. We finished with a climb up to lofty Mount Osmond and a windy ride down to the suburbs, where Trudy had a feast awaiting us.

We had a great BBQ and entertainment supplied by the night time V8 supercar race in Perth, which Ford won. Special thanks to everyone for all the salads and desserts and Pete and Helen for their excellent sweeping.
