Welcome to the Forum Fee.
May have seen your car at Morrisons last week? We are in Falkirk as well.
Watch out for either an old BRG MK1 (tan roof) or a Crystal Blue MK2.5 (wife's)
Happy driving!
Robin

Hello there. Nice to see a yellow car for a change. Always liked the yellow ones. I'm sure you will be out about on the club runs before long :D

Thanx for the nice warm welcome peeps x. I always think if ya want a car to stand out . . pick a colour thats different so hence the yellow lol. Although it took me over a year to find one i feel its well worth the wait. My first one was a 'midnight blue' ?? 1.6 v reg, not too sure if there was any particular model at that time. . .maybe just me but i thought the 1.6 was quite sluggish so then I then went on to a 54 grey Euphonic but because of a sudden illness which led to a major op i had to reluctantly sell it, but as my health improved i decided to get another but in the colour i had always wanted. :D :D

Hi and welcome.
You car is a stunning colour :D . I was always a bit partial to a yellow one myself but I don't really have the personality to pull it off :lol:

If you see my car around (I work in Linlithgow), you can't miss it - looks like a huge seagull has left it's mark on my bonnet :mrgreen:

Cheers,

Kev

I think you'll find the first reg on a 5 was 1989/90 and was G - I always work it out from there - think "Gee what a super car!"
