[ show pre-run info ]

Well what a run that was! After various pick ups along the way 12 cars headed off from Keith around the lovely countryside of Moray. We had lunch in Granton on Spey which was rather busy what with the Highland Games going on. That in addition to the annual motorbike convention meant that Granton was busy with folk so we attracted plenty of admiring glances and I do believe maybe being caught on film as we left the town! Angie and David lead us through some wonderful countryside along some single track twisty roads after lunch and we were planning to stop by Lochindorb for a quick photo opportunity but the layby was waterlogged! Never mind, it was still worth the drive along the road as it snaked close to the waters edge. Next stop was Nairn for ice cream by the harbour. Luckily we were able to get all the cars parked up together for a photo opportunity and again more admirers. Thereafter it was back to Keith the long way where we stopped again for a wee blether and to say cheerio. All in all a splendid day out.

It was my first run with the club and I hope it\'s the first of many.  It is difficult to imagine it being better.  On the way back I didn\'t see folks turning off into the Keith square, and by the time I realised what had happened I was too far down the road.  Sorry I missed the chat at the end - apologies if I appeared rude not saying farewell.  Thanks to all those who worked so hard to make this a good day.

Hi folks,

Just been looking through the latest softop-hardtop magazine and thought I spotted a familiar friend who may have been on the Wolf Run. It looked like an Indiana which I think could be my last MX5.  We knew that it was purchased by someone from Inverness, or round about, and just wondered if it was that car.  We traded it in for our third MX5 at Struan Motors Perth, September 2007.  If it is, hope someone is having a great time with the car.  I'm really missing the bum warming heated seats as my latest car doesn't have these !!

Is that the purple coloured one? (Sorry for being dim!). If so then it belongs to Paul and Sue and has been much admired by all.

Hi Lorraine,

Itís a deep maroon colour, with cream leather interior, wooden steering wheel.  If they purchased it in Perth then it has to be our old car as there are very few around. We had a private plate on it so donít know the registration to confirm.

Lesley, I'll be seeing them on the 21st so will ask where they got the car from. It's certainly the only one that colour in our group so it may well be your car.

Thanks Lorraine
I am a member of our local mx5 club (Edinburgh) and we would have loved to have gone on this particular run as my husband is from Nairn although we have been in Edinburgh for 20 odd years now. Will keep an open on any postings round about the 21st Feb.Thanks for your response much obliged Lesley

Our car is actually a Montana, which started its life down in sothern England according to the service stamps.  So I don't think it can be your old motor.  We bought it from McRae and Dicks in Inverness early last year - so now you know the answer if anyone ever asks you "Who would be potty enough to buy a convertable sports car in February in Northern Scotland?".  Mind you it was one of our best ever decisions (we love it) and yes I can understand you missing the bum warmer its "toasty".

Thanks for your reply. Will still keep an eye open for the old buggie anytime we are up north
