2004 - 2005
The pictures on my computer start in 2004. I know we had heaps of other pics, but these must have been in the 'old' days, pre digital cameras.
Some random pics from 2006. Few trips to Cooma, one through the snow over Brown Mtn to Bega to watch a rally. Some from down at Cambe fixing Pete's E12.
2007 - 2008
More running about the place for the Laser. Clocked up 300k km in its travels. We moved from Canberra to Cambewarra, had Talia and started building the house.
Among the daily duties I took the Laser up to Marulan for its first track outing. It was a whole lot of fun on the track, like I thought it would be. Had an absolute ball. Lots of dust storms about too. Combined with a bit of rain they make a hell of a mess of everything.
The Laser took a trip up to Dunedoo with Tal and Maya on the way to Dubbo zoo. And then in August it suffered its first major incident. Trev was bringing it back down from his place after we'd borrowed the Prado, and collected a roo near the fire station. Still drivable, but took a punch in the nose. Got it fixed up under insurance. Then in November she hit another major milestone, clocking up 400k km. What a champion car.
With the new VE wagon taking over daily duties, it was time to retire the old Laser. The HAK073 plates were swapped to the VE and then the rego expired. The Laser was moved to the shed now out of rego. It did come out later in July for another track session at Wakefield Park. I drove it up there on a permit with no plates (no questions were asked along the way). I had swapped the drivers seat for the SAAS one, and put a harness in. The old girl bombed about the track all day, managed 83 laps, and drove me home again. Cracking fun day.
