Hope you didnt get hit to hard.
Its strange times we are having .
I have just moved to Victoria from Queensland and know just how bad a cyclone can be.
The town I have moved to has had 2 major floods in 6 weeks and now they think we will again with
rain from the tail end of Yasi
Hope you are fine and dont have to much of a clean up to do..and hope the car is safe and sound

Moparmarket is probably the best technical source.

Another good forum which is more of a chryslerphile social crowd is http://www.hemi6pack.com/forum/forum.php but there are some very knowledgeable people there as well.Can be a bit clicky so if you haven't got a thick skin it's possible you won't survive there.

Another good one operated by the Queensland Chrysler Association is   http://www.queenslandchryslers.com/forum/
It generally caters for the greater Brisbane and environs area but anyone else is most welcome.I have a lot of mates who are QCA members.

Welcome from another Aussie, we are almost neighbours being in Victoria. I imported mine a couple of years ago and the wait can be annoying but worth it. I have imported vehicles before but this was for me, it is different. Challenger currently in storage but hoping to get out real soon. Do you intend to convert it or leave it original, you will have to have a VASS engineer check it and make it comply to Aussie standards. mainly seat belts and headlights. Like nqkjw I am on Mopar Market too.   :cheers:

Thanks for the welcome..where in Vic are you??
I was just on the phone today talking to the VASS guy and im thinking of just going with club rego.
On the new log book scheme you can just about drive the car every weekend.
Maybe when it comes out of storage we could go for a cruz... :2thumbs:

I live in the Yarra Valley about 4 hours from you, I used to come up tp Mt Buninyong regular in the late '60's & '70's. Are you going to Chryslers on the Murray 19th & 20th March? I am hoping to get there on Saturday for the day but without the Challenger.

Will have to try and catch up then, my house is on the market at the moment but with the inquires so far it should be sold by then and I will be free to go. PM you closer to the day or email me, my email is in my member details.   :cheers:
