    I know, i'd all but lost the will to live with the 2 rovers doing 35-40 and nowhere to pass. Got them in the end though, ha! I've got to stop braking in the corner, must do better. Went into Morrisons in Banchory for Sunday dinner, hoaching with pink skin. Just glad my milk bottle legs are intact!

    You should have come down man I was feeling a bit like a gooseberry (in a good way) in my little A4. Being harrased by S3's and the like. It was a good day chaps and the weather made it even more enjoyable. Ah one day of sun and we all turn to sunseekers. I've got some pics so will get them sorted and posted asap, plates blured and all. Cheers gents

    Right gents, I'll kick off with some of my snaps from today. Not bad, but not great at the same time!

    Started 11AM in Banchory...

    Then headed through Aboyne, bypassed Ballater and onto Braemar and the spittal of Glenshee. Weather was crackin' so we stopped for a quick pic...

    Finally, up and down through the spittal and stopped for refreshments...

    Nosebag...

    Blether...

    Top day, really enjoyed it. Good bunch of like minded guys. Let me know if you're not happy with me posting the people shots and I can easily remove.

    Cheers, Rich :icon_thumright:

    I'll try this again but without putting everyone's plates on display...

    Was also saying that your boys were just as excited about the cars as us so I don't think we had to try and make them feel welcome, they just sorta fit in! lol.

    Here's the photos though (I don't have photoshop or anything so their pretty much staright off the camera...):

    [​IMG]

    Edit - For some reason the number plates (which are swirled on photobucket) are not swirled when posted here... Shame but I'll just leave this as the only one up for now.

    i meant to ask you how you were getting on with your project car, i had a small mishap with oil by that i mean id forgotten to fill mine to ful so it was boiling trying to keep up with you guys :laugh: so i had to take it easy, thats why i dropped off was having good fun untill then put a half litre in when i got back to forfar and everythings sweet again probably due to less air and the temperature outside. doesnt help that the fan on the car is on its way out. i should have a new one in for next time though just one of the jobs ive never gotten round to

    Rich went into 'driving miss daisey mode' and i couldn't get past all 3 in a row...................................lol.

    Seriously, after you went the roads got twisty and the oncoming traffic got busy at the wrong time.

    I was being that bit cautious, I will admit, but the blue-rinse brigade was out for their jolly Sunday stroll in the Rover 95. Honestly, 40mph? I saw Neil tear off with Si in hot pursuit, but just after Ballater that was it, gone. Think I saw the remains of the Civic, but haven't read anything about it. Was it as nasty as we thought?

    ****, the close up of my front end is seriously getting to me. Doesn't look too bad from the side view, but 225's as a minimum are needed quick like. Anyone know where I can trade used tyres in against new ones, plus cash obviously?

    Great pics though. Anyone with anymore?

    You could call Sillett's on Holland St. in Aberdeen. I don't know if they would do it but I know they are one of the best for prices and he will change all four of your tyres in about 5 mins which is great. Give him a call...

    Simon - We're still waiting on your photos! :cool:
