Not sure what the 'Period' dress would be but it does say "Particular emphasis will be towards top (or significant) marques from the historic, vintage, classic sports, racing and grand touring categories through to modern prestigious sports and performance cars." :D

Well my MX-5 is Prestigious, in my eyes, and I would have thought that we all think that our cars are a bit special.

According to the e-mail I received we will be invited, what we will be wearing may be a different matter, perhaps borrow a mock up Tardis...Mx-5 Owners travel back in time to the era of the late seventies, when the car was at concept stage perhaps an Avengers theme :lol: Bowler hats for the chaps and leather trousers for the ladies, could be fun.

Hi Douglas,


We decided to make the final decision after the event and not to make a formal announcement at Callander. I intend to write to all those clubs and single entry owners by the weekend to explain why we are on the move and to assure them that the weekend will still take place but as part of our new Autoclassica. Same club enclosures but with much more to see and do and with an international profile.

To keep the Callander event going and to provide ever increasing activities and enjoyment we need to move up onto a higher level and introduce corporate involvement whilst not loosing our attraction to those who have faithfully supported us in the past such as the MX5 Owners Club. It also has to cover our expenses and time and the risk involved.

The Autoclassica is going to be a big event and will take up all our time and resources to make it successful and that means sadly Callander has to be replaced.

I'm really ticked off about this. For some reason (living under a rock probably) I managed to miss the build up to the Callander event and it totally passed me by. When I saw the pics I thought - "Wow, what a shame I missed that. I'll have to go next year."

Still, the new/moved event sounds interesting too.

You bet we are, how could we miss it. Already made enquiry's about a hotel for next year (block booking). I Will be at the Launch Event on Saturday 22nd September this year, can't go on the Sunday due to the Gathering. if anyone else wants to join me.
It would appear that next years event is on 30th-31st August.

Fancy Dress? Yes, why not!

Here are a couple of photos of me and daughter Lesley 'dressed up' for Glasgow Parade of Wheels in 2004 - it was just a kit car, but so what, doesn't stop you having fun, and neither should having to invent a period theme for Culzean.......

The Avengers? - could be, but could someone dress up as Purdy from the New Avengers,...... please?! :oops:

Disappointed :( ...Malin Court confirmed the Hotel has been booked for a wedding 30th August next year, 16 of the 18 rooms are taken, would have been perfect, ideal location, excellent food, bar open late-late, oh well the Turnberry Hotel won't know what's hit them :wink:

If the TSSC are welcome with their rattly old Spitfires, Vitesses and Bond Equipes, I'm sure we'd fit in OK.

I had my suspicions about the date for 2008, mix up over the Bank Holiday dates, The Culzean Autoclassica 2008 will now be on 23-24 August, which is the same Bank Holiday Weekend Callander always fell on.
