View Full Version : Marques In the Park 2010

15th October 2010, 09:56 PM
Marques is coming up again this year. These details are from the CCG (canberra Celica Group) noticeboard. It would be great to get a good turnout of AE86's this year, as there are a few more about now. Remember, it doesn't have to be a show car, just a classic Toyota, and it's free.
If you dont know it, the details are as follows:

15th October 2010, 11:10 PM
Just come with us (CCG/Toymods). Just meet with us at the above mentioned meeting point and time. You dont have to be a club member, just turn up and meet all the friendly guys..... If you come, that's 3 confirmed AE86's......

16th October 2010, 12:44 PM
Been trying to decide who to go with, CCG/Toymods or Rollaclub. Been a member of the rollaclub forums pretty much since I got my first car and attended Marques with them last year, but it's not an extremely active club (in ACT) and I've done almost as much with CCG as I have with Rollaclub over the past year, so I might tag along with you guys.

Will have to spend a couple of days cleaning up my engine bay before so at least something on the car looks nice and shiny or else everyone will think mine car is the same as Jojos, just looks shitter.

16th October 2010, 06:49 PM
Ok, Sloth, I will put you down as coming with CCG/Toymods..... It would be great to see your 86 there....

Are you confirmed John84ie?

Add one more 4A-GZE Sprinter to the list - not exactly in showcar condition but I'll have to give it a good polish and bring it along.


19th October 2010, 04:48 PM

19th October 2010, 11:10 PM

20th October 2010, 09:09 PM
If I can get my brakes sorted by then I'll come along. But I don't really have the time to work on the car right now.

21st October 2010, 01:01 AM
Yo jamekins,
would be great to have you there champ,
Let me know if your gonna make it,

22nd October 2010, 10:00 AM
Well for now I'm a maybe cause currently the car can't stop properly. But I shall try to get it fixed by marques

22nd October 2010, 10:06 AM
Jamekins, Whats is it thats wrong with ya stoppers?

22nd October 2010, 02:10 PM
I'm having issues with the new proportioning valve I put in when I did the diff swap. For some reason one of the brake lines won't screw into it properly, I think the thread on the line or the valve may be a bit rooted (I think it may be the line causing the issue). So its just the one brake line stopping me from driving the car and I don't have much time to fix it right now.

14th November 2010, 12:34 PM
Just seeing if people are still coming next weekend?

Jamekins, how is the brake problem coming along?

14th November 2010, 03:30 PM
I've been too busy with uni work to even think about fixing it over the past week. I'll see if I can get it working before sunday.

14th November 2010, 07:27 PM
I'm still in. Just gotta give my car a wash after hitting the skidpan today.

Well I never got time to fix the car before the event. I rocked up at about 1 in my daily but I think most of you had left by then. CCG boys had a good sausage sizzle on though.

21st November 2010, 05:21 PM
Thanks for coming guys, best AE86 (and KE70) turnout we've ever had........

Nice pics Jojo!

Most of the ones I got were close up shots of engine and detail shots of the cars. I only realised after I left I'd barely got any full car shots, lol.

You can see all mine here: http://www.photos.tregearit.com/main.php?g2_itemId=6622

We should organise an 86 photoshoot some time.

21st November 2010, 08:09 PM
Couple of my random photoshopped up pics of the day. As I said, mostly got engines and detail shots.

Nice shots guys. Stole a shot for my avatar Craig, thanks!

Was a good day to catch up, good to meet you Jojo too

Feel slightly bad I didnt clean my car but eh. No time no talent ;)

21st November 2010, 09:22 PM
Nice shots guys. Stole a shot for my avatar Craig, thanks!

Glad there was one you liked. The sun was super bright which is quite annoying with shiny cars.

22nd November 2010, 07:16 PM
I didn't even realise AE86DC was representing at Marques! I was there across from you with Team Ground Zero. Only had five cars on show. We had a 180SX, R32, R33, SW20 and a Subaru B4. I was planing on bringing my 86 but the engine died a few days before hand. Holy hell the sun was hot!

22nd November 2010, 10:43 PM
Nice photos. Makes me wish I'd got there earlier so I could have had a bit of a chat. I did manage to get the brakes working that afternoon too. Shame the engine decided to stop firing in one cylinder so I couldn't really go for a drive :l
