The car park at Manning resembled a scene from "Life on Mars" and by 10am we were on the road. The cruise was a short hour trip up the hills and through some nice winding roads to Mundaring Weir. We lost a couple of people on the way but most ended up at the destination for a BBQ and good old chin wag (Big thanks Volker for supplying the grub).
It was quite a sight driving up those tight winding roads in the hills with a dozen Capris all in a row. On route down the hills we took the well known "ZIGZAG" road which is also used in the Targa West Rally (known as the king of the mountain leg - after Brock's death in '07).
All in all everyone seemed to enjoy the day thoroughly and are all keen for another cruise.
I suggested making it a bi-annual event - that way all the people that turned up minus their Capris (i.e. Volker :-) will have enough time to get them back on the road where they belong!
Just for the record - no Capris fell victim to the warm day and the steep hills !! ....Oh, except for one dodgy clutch cable - but he still made it home.
