Just pretend you are a high-ranking party member who is on a decade-long waiting list for a brand-new Lada and had to "make do" with a decadent capitalist automobile until then.

Will be there, but might have to be on two wheels as the Skoda has seen no love at all this year. Maybe 2018 will see it back on the road...

Parking?

Bishop street car park (https://goo.gl/maps/vSqs4ACPNMs) just round the corner

Belgrade plaza car park (https://goo.gl/maps/r4dHb1xZfW42) a little further away if Bishop street is full.

I had a problem once before on a Saturda, even finding the way into the car park and then it was full.

Back home now. A good selection of Soviet bloc era chod which has not lessened my desire to have a Riva estate. Nice to meet plasticvandan for the first time and Chaseracer.

Oh and I became aware of the Raleigh Vektar bike which I somehow had no knowledge of before today. I wonder if there are any on eBay......
