Well, I just brought what I think is the 20th Coupé into Oz from the UK and very happy to have it here. Any time I get homesick, I just sit in her, close my eyes, and I could be right back on the M25 again!

A big thank you also to Graeme at FCCQ for helping me out with so many things over here, I'm looking forward to joining the club and enjoying my Coupé for another 10 years or more .... she certainly doesn't miss the snow and ice; no more frozen handbrake, no more pooring hot water on the doorlocks, and no more snow falling into the car when I open the door, bonnet, boot etc. ... The only downside is that I might get a slightly more dangerous variety of spider living in the wing mirror now ;o)

What model is that Robski?
Any photos?
I have a bit of a register going and currently have 19 confirmed Oz Coupes, but there may be one or two more. If yours is recently imported it would indeed be the 20th known car.

The photo was taken at Wakefield Park, Goulburn, New South Wales, 2 weeks ago.

The car is a recent arrival in Australia.

Graeme, do you happen to know if it has been registered for road use, or is it purely a track car?

Are you sure you have the right car? Marc has had this for years.

It's not registered.

Yes, I knew it was Marc's car, but I was told that it is one that he had just bought in as, you know, he brings in all sorts of auto bits etc, including some interesting cars, over the years.

Antony, I assume it is only for track use as the plates are not NSW.

It's a 20VT Wazza (sorry for delay in replying).

I'm about to embark on a complete respray (she's a lovely salmon pink currently and the lacquer coat flaking nicely). Getting her back to proper Rosso Red will be awesome, and a layer of UV topcoat should keep that Aussie sun at bay for a while. Had the piston heads done in the UK (including 2 broken pistons replaced!) so engine sounding sweet now.

Might have to start scouring those UK scrap yards and get a line of spares stacked up in the garage over here though!

I sure it is! Making the 24000 miles round trip for a meet is a bit steep though. Unless I can find someone halfway to do a cambelt change chinny

Not mine as I will be recovering from surgery and don't think I will be up for the 3,500 km round trip.

However, I would expect to see a few from Sydney heading south.

If all goes to plan, Queensland could be hosting the 2013 event so all the "Mexicans" will come north to God's country.

Sister-in-Law just skyped to say she has very recently spotted the Blitz (I last saw this in 2008 around Shirley, CC).

In NZ taupo might be the most lightly place to spot a coupe I have two mates and between them the own 7 although only 2 are road registered at this time I managed to prise the parts car off them so I have one and all things going ok should be road leagle in the new year and there is another ink black that they sold to another mate.

Hi Gerry. I came across a coupe 16vt red in a driveway while i was at the rugby world cup in 2011 somewhere below Taupo.

We stopped and knocked on his door,nice old fella with loads of alfa's etc. He said his mate down the road had a track coupe.

Hi from sunny Dunedin NZ. I just bought a 95 16v. Drove it all the way from Nelson with no issues. Runs like an absolute dream.
