I think the "riding around on the Ace's" is a skateboarding reference.
I went to Northcote ramp in Melbourne for a day in 88.
Here's something about the site;

BDEI's comment;
Eric Nash, a Sims skater at Northcote ramp (Melbourne) 1989. Eric was a great skater. Very technical and loose. Northcote was Australia's largest vert ramp at the time. Thirteen feet high and a foot and a half of vertical. Thats me and Stephen Hill on the platform.

Its a misconception from my youth that Hotslide may share; that there was a make of skateboard called "Ace".
My memory seems a bit questionable.
At the time I made good use of those early Skatin' Lifes and street directories.
I had a look at a map....I think it was at Johnson Park.
(hmm) ...those Melbourne trams go along way out!
