After longing for an MX5 for ever just got my first Eunos two days ago. Hasn't it brought the fun back to motoring - just cant stop looking out the window, looking at reflection in shop windows and grinning like a loony.

My day car is a Mazda 6 sport and I thought it was fun. (it is just not as much fun as the open top!!)

Long time since I drove a car that folks actually waved to me in....wasn't that when the AA patrolmen were on motorbikes!!!

Looking forward to waving at fellow MX5/Eunos drivers up here in the North East

Welcome to the fold! A good choice if I may say so.

Keep checking this web site for news, views and runs in the area and it's worth joining the Owners Club to enjoy the many benefits.

Hi Kaypee

Likewise I have just joined the "club" with a new 1.8 Arctic edition in a ovely blue colour.

It is sitting outside my window as I write so I can gaze lovingly at it, or should I say "Big Elsie" as she is fondly called. Dont ask as its a long story but midlife crisis is the short version. :lol:

I too will wave to fellow 5 drivers. I must admit my days are now spent 5 spotting. Must remember to buy that anorak!! :wink:

See you on the road in town then maybe.

Hiya folks.

I'm not a new owner yet.. need to sort out finances and to find that wee gem of a 5 that is not in a tatty state or too many miles on the clock.

I wonder if I might get some advice.

I will be buying a 5 either in the short term.. or probably about xmas time - yeah what a pressie for me !

I don't know much about them. but having looked at an old mx-5 (probably a P reg) in a local garage i have learned that the hood is an original and the plastic has been repaired.. not a good sight.. it has 83 on the clock and seems in reasonable nick.. had a few repairs to door seals by the look of it.

any tips on how to buy an mx-5, what to look out for, who to take with me, would be fab !!!

need help guys !

I will have around 4 grand to spend... i'd love a new arctic.. but with 2 kids i need a 4 seater. So the 5 is my toy !

Lorraine,

I was behind a blue 5 last night going into town - number A ** JOY was that your one. I was in my day car (a Mazda 6)?

Hi there,

wrong spy, I was in the pub last night and the car in the drive at home.

My car is B** ELC anyway. You would be able to tell it was me by the size of the grin on my face :wink:

We are hoping to go hillwalking tomorrow if the weather improves and we can get 2 rucksacks, boots and walking poles in the wee boot. :?

If so then we will be heading down the Dundee road towards Kirriemuir so I will be on the lookout for all the 5's I can see so I can wave and smile with a knowing gratification that we all have the best cars in the world!

Lorraine :D

Just been out for a wee spin (about 6pm ish) and saw a wee dark coloured 5 at the B & Q roundabout in Bridge of Don. I waved and think the other person did too but could not really see over the central reservation. :cry:

will look out for you but if the weather is bad then wont be down that way, sorry.

:wink:

NE new owners

Postby PaulDS » Sat Aug 13, 2005 8:10 pm

Hi,

Message for,

Buntytw26, Kaypee, Jockmazza, IanH, Stevieg and anyone else!!

If you can't make the run tomorrow, why don't you come along and say hello at Asda Portlethen.

I'm hoping to meet up with Rockdoc at around 9am to travel down to Blairgowrie.

It would be nice to see the growing contingent of interested '5' owners in our area.

Hi Paul, would love to have come but if weather good then heading to the hills down by Glen Clova. If you all want to go there and oggle the new car the grid ref is NO284761 for the carpark.

Will likely be leaving Aberdeen about 9 so may see you all in Asda carpark. Will give a toot if we see you! :lol:

Hi chaps,

hope you managed to meet up and have a nice day. We didnt drive past Asda till 9.30 so probably missed you all. Mind you you cant see over the trees anyway.

We had a lovely trip down the road and the B955 is a fine road for enjoying the 5 topless. 8)

Had a pint on the way homeafter 2 munros then had no option but to give her a wash and get the flies off the front!!

Now has pride of place in the drive, all clean again. Good old Elsie!! Can feel a trip to Halfords tomorrow for lots of swanky cleaning products. Sad! :shock:

Message for Paul. (and rest of you)

Thanks for the invite - i was recovering from a BBQ in stirlling.
I was subjected to the usual jibes of "hairdressers car" when i mentioned my desire of a 5.
The 1.8i convertable i nearly bought in dundee a few months ago was no pussy cats car - it was a beast in BRG!!

I am up in Portlethen / Aberdeen a lot..so the next 5 i see i will peep at.

Once i get my ideal weekend car, I'll join the ranks !!
