There are stories that get passed around town like legends, some are urban legends which have long since passed any form of reality and some are still rooted in fact.
Perhaps you've heard all sort of stories about 'The Quarry' out near Lue. Specially one story that 'the ARMY once pulled a bunch of cars' out from its now flooded bottom.
Well, we're here to tell you that it really happened, way back in 1988, nearly 31 years ago.
We will republish the story as it was written below in its entirety.

Quarry cleared of stolen scrap
In a combined exercise between a Sydney police diving unit and Ingleburn Army 101 Field Workshops unit, stolen wrecks were pulled from the Lue Road Quarry this week.
This landrover, number eight to see the light of day and police notebooks, caused considerable trouble to the services, refusing to climb to the top of the quarry and reveal its identity.
Despite fairly extensive deterioration of the car wrecks, most of them were fairly easy to remove.
The divers would wrap the chain around the car underwater and the army vehicles would winch the cars to the top of the cliff.
Once removed, the cars would eventually be identified, traced, then crushed and taken away, probably ending up as razor blades.
According to head of the police diving unit, Sgt Gordon Place, cars are piled one above the other in the quarry reducing its depth in some parts from 40 feet to 10 feet.
The cars pulled up before the landrover on Wednesday were two Sigmas, a Torana, Monaro, HR Holden, Datsun 200B and a Centura.
The eight Army Recovery Unit workers and five police divers are continuing their efforts today to retrieve the secrets of the Lue Road Quarry.
