2015 Corvettes on the Coast

Sunday morning rolled around, so Damian headed to the shed to wake up Booger Mobile... it was time to head down to the Gold Coast as special guests of the Queensland Corvette Club for their annual Corvettes on the Coast car show.


The sun was just rising...


But the headlight LED's looked awesome!!


So did the rooftop pod LED's...


Close up...


Damian a picture of concentration...


Gratuitous rooftop pod shadow photo...


Time for Damian to break out the green sunnies!!


Deja vu... pretty sure Damian crossed this bridge in Booger Mobile the previous Sunday morning!!


And down the other side...


Safety socks on as always!!


Heading the right way... Gold Coast straight ahead!!


And at Southport Parklands... parked waiting for the show to begin!!


The show has begun!!


A bit later, a whole bunch of Ford Mustangs parked beside Booger Mobile... good to have other Fords to keep Booger Mobile company!!


The officials working hard...


The stage was set...


Another angle of Booger Mobile and the car show...


A nice red convertible... framing Booger Mobile in the background nicely!!


Always time for a selfie!!


Just in case people didn't know what Booger Mobile was!!


Bonnet up for Damian to speak to interested passers-by...


Trophies lined up...


The sky was turning dark...


With rain on the way, Bob kicked off the trophy presentations early...


All set?


Trophy time!!


The rain started to fall gently, so the show was finished up early and a whole line up of cars waited patiently to get out at the lights...


The storm clouds rolled in...


It did rain a bit on the way home, but by the time Damian got there it was bright and sunny...


Shiny beast!!


So, that was the last long run for Booger Mobile before the 2015 Camp Quality esCarpade... Damian did 240km and the fuel gauge is still between quarter of a tank and empty, so this year with any luck Damian will get around 250km per tank full!!  Good times!!  Perhaps the new rooftop pod is a contributing factor - it's far more aerodynamic than the previous ornament!!

Stay tuned - there are still a bunch of little things to do before the esCarpade rolls around!!
