Nice little jaunt in the country

Postby Detritus » Sun Mar 04, 2007 6:57 pm

Day over. :cry:

But wasn't it fun while it lasted. :D

Kim enjoyed it so much she suggested we carry on into Elgin. :D

Abig thank you to the weather for staying dry all day. :D

A great big THANK YOU to every one who made it. :D

And to those who didn't... hope you're jealous..see you next time. :lol:

Now the pics.

My little silver baby in Elgin, all alone at 10.55am.

Tesco Huntly..That's better.

The reason you need to let Ricky buy a supercharger is........... :lol:
Thanks Paul, she might now. :roll:

I had loads of fun.

Hope you all did too.

First of all a BIG THANKS to Detritus for organising the day. And another thanks to all the others that came along. It was my first mx5 meet and won't be my last. Great bunch of people and cars.

I've now pretty much got the other half convinced about buying a few things for the car now that she's seen the others, so a double bonus of the day :D 8)

I'll add some pics later but most are the same as above so won't add those ones. Would have more to add but I didn't put the camera on autofocus for the shots Julie was trying to take while driving so most haven't focused :roll:

It finally feels like I've driven the car for a change and not just used it.

Anyone else got windburn on the face ? Maybe it's sunburn :lol:

good to see you all got the hood down through the day! :)

weathers been terrible down in the borders, because of the rain it took me 2 and a half days to fit low profile lights, reckon through these days i must have put in a total of 3 hours of work, bloody rain!

good to see you all enjoyed yourself too!
No more Mx5... but the MR2 is a beast and a half!

Glad you all had a good day out, shame I was working, would like to have joined you, maybe next time.

A question-why were there seven cars in Huntly but only five later on?

Lost one in Huntly and another had to leave Aviemore early. Nothing sinister.

Nothing organised, but.....I was thinking of taking a ride out to Loch Ness.

Any one interested?

If the weather is nice how about your photo shoot of local cars
Better still, how about helping me trace the fault with my dial.

Oh and by the way, Mike9 just met up at Tesco and Rockdoc left after lunch before photo shoot in car park.
