Any other Calibra owners in Cairns?

If you're out there say hi. I know there's a couple that get around but are rarely seen. I seem to remember a red one (not sure if it's an 8v or 16v) and a V6. Always on the lookout for parts.

Hi there,  You may have seen my Red 2Lt Calibra around Cairns, I have had it for about 10 or 15 years, The clutch went and I got a Silver Grey Calibra for parts and drove it for about 2 or 3 years.
I now have a Dark Blue 4X4 Turbo, it does run a bit hot in Cairns so if any body has any tips on cooling in the tropics I would be happy to hear from you.
P.S. If any body has a Calibra I would be happy to hear from you.

I just noticed a red Calibra on Mulgrave road yesterday with no rego plate on the back in front of a used car place. Is that your old car?
Can't really help with the cooling issue as I've never has a turbo, sorry. Ill keep an eye out for your car though.

No that is not my old red one, my old red and grey Calibra's are in my garage, I now have 3 !
If any body out there has a leaky driver's door, I know how to fix it.
I am at Machan's Beach, if you are in Cairns how about a meet at the Esplanade some time to compare notes.

Sounds good. I've got a few things to work on for my car so any tips would be great. I'm at Mooroobool near City View so the Esplanade works for me. Wish I had room for more cars.
