Hi folks, sorry I missed this one. Got the Nevada back from the repairer and just wanted to go straight out on a run. If anyone ever needs their '5' repaired to a first class standard, I can heartely recommend the guy I use. He repaired and sprayed the front nose/bumber of the car, also took out the scuff scratches on the rear bumber and resprayed it, polished out the scratches on the rear driver side quarter panel and resprayed it. The colour match is 100% perfect and the car looks like it just came out of the showroom when brand new. And the total cost to the insurers was £317 including VAT. The guy is a perfectionist. This is the second time I have used him, he repaired my beloved Mazda Xedos sport after the local yobs decided to use the boot lid, roof and bonnet as a shortcut.

Brilliant dryday oot, Many thanks to Richard for a stunning route, A big thanks to the guys fae the glesga area. It's very hard to drive with Barron von Ripper behind you, Every time I looked in the interier mirror I was blinded by the sun shinning off his napper. Excellent lunch stop, then back to Paul's house for a cuppa (which I didny get) good auld natter before heading home.

1st Class.

Poing, I would think of getting a pair of gloves for your wife, When she hits you it will not hurt as much.

Haven't found any her nails won't go through the end of yet :shock:

Brilliant day out again, faster pace for some parts which suits me just fine :D Amazing how many great roads we have so local to ourselves.

Nice to see the mk3's and thanks to both of them for making the effort and getting up soooo early. Great lunch. Off to download the pics and stick some online in some shape or form.

Thanks to Paul for leading part of the way and setting a brisk pace on some fantastic roads and thanks for all the coffee's. Malcolm did get a coffee but it was sitting cold on the table while he raced... erm I mean escorted the mk3's to the main road :D

And of course thanks to Rick for sorting this out again, slightly forced this time (by Malcolm) but well worth the effort.

Who is it you use Bill?

I've got a bit of work on the Jeep and the 5, would rather get it done by someone recommended and maybe not so close, if you know what I mean.

Thoroughly enjoyed the drive and our day out together.
Great to see you again Colin & Stevie, after following you today I got a good look at he handling of the Mk3, very impressed, nice cars, hope to see you again Tony.
Rickie, you set a good lead, not easy keeping Malc under control :twisted:

Invergordan Autobody in the industrial estate, 01349 852967
It is a one man (and wife) business, and I know most of the vintage and veteran car club members get their work done there. The craftmanship is superb, I saw a crashed Daimler restored to concours condition and I know other people who have had work carried out by this guy. Not one single complaint, everyone agrees he is the best. I certainly swear by him, if you had seen the damage done to my Xedos by the young yobs you would understand how I felt when I went to pick the car up after the repairs. It looked like it had just come out of the showroom in brand new condition. And his prices are fair. The Mazda dealer wanted to charge me over £1800 + VAT to repair the damage done to my car. This guy did it for one sixth of that price.

Just read Paul's comment, 'A Virgin run' !!!!!! where the heck did you find a virgin on the Morayshire coast??
We had a dance for all the virgins in Golspie, it was held in the telephone box at the end of the street, and there was a ten piece band playing.

Jeez, you visted Pennan!! I hope you were lucky and didn't get sh*t on from a great height!! We went there with the Central Region run, parked the car, and this seagull with a serious bowel disorder dumped on us. We were covered, it with an sh' in front of it was everywhere. In the air vents, on the seats, on us. And no, we did not win the lottery that night. Seagulls are just rats with wings!!

the photos are superb, looks like everyone had a terrific day out. Wish we had been there. Unfortunately, still stuck in the office and still working :cry:

The only fun I get is reading Malc's posts. How many now?????

Thanks for that Bill, I'll pop round it's only about 20 mins from here.

Strangely enough on Thursday I was chatting to a friend of mine on Thursday and he mentioned him as well.
