Autumn Leaves Run
Sun 21st Oct 2012
organised by Tayside Scotland

Car Count : 11
[ show event report ]

Hi to all, it's that time of the year again, the wind is blowing, leaves are falling a perfect time for our third "Autumn Leaves Run"

This year i intend to take us in and around Fife on some A & B roads will have to talk with some of the locals to find a suitable place to stop for some refreshments en route.

This maybe the last run of the year (i hope not as last year we had later runs !!)

Hope to see lots of smiling happy faces and cars on the day.

Had a talk with Alex and we might head north and inland going, stop at Strathcathro service for a bite to eat and return via Montrose the back roads to Dundee.

Those attending can decide on the day. !!

Thanks to Tom and Alex for arranging the weather. It was just magic going through the Angus countryside in the warm and golden autumn sunlight.

Good crack at the Stracathro stop. Started with around 6 tayslider cars and four grampian cars and another tayslider joined on the outskirts of Dundee.

Thanks again Tom and Alex

Another superb outing in very acceptable weather...not a bad record considering the summer we've had. As you say Eddie, good crack at Stracathro. Great to see some Grampian cousins join us for the run as well as John, Alec and also Gavin on his first trip. More of the same please...and yes Thomas, I'm still smiling,

Great day out today. Thanks to Tom and Alex for organising.  Weather excellent - just hope it\'s as good next Sunday when we head for Fochabers.  Many thanks to David the painter for feeding the dogs in our absence!!!

Splendid and saw many autumn leaves --good convoy control!!
Could organise another Angus one re railway history but probably best left to the spring now rather than another Angus run  soon---some discussion re insurance -SAGA IS GOOD FOR US 116-- fully comp husband/wife 5000mls per annum -worth a try if you are paying hundreds.

John, just got my latest insurance renewal for my MK3 MX5 from SAGA, been with them for the past 9 years with both cars, fully comp, never had a claim, full 60% protected NCB, 5000 miles per annum same as you...486!!!....I have been with SAGA since we bought our first MX5....We are with them no longer!! I changed to Aviva, fully comp, 7000 miles per annum full 60% NCB and various other things thrown in 127....

Hi All. I'm an ex MX-5 owner, traded in my sunlight silver mk2.5 for a new Focus ST 4 years ago. I was out on the bicycle on Sunday morning (up the back of Wellbank on my way to Glamis/Alyth) and was passed by 10+ mk3 MX-5's most of which had the top down, which was good to see. Brought back memories, and I wish I still had mine... Just wanted to say, nice looking motors and a big thank-you to all for giving me plenty room when you overtook, much appreciated.

Couldn't have been us then Steve...we're not that considerate ;) By the way, the credit for yesterday was all Toms', I just turned up for the run.
