Hi All,

No sorry James, this isn't my vehicle of choice for our trip - but having wood fired Pizza onboard would be great !!

Todays car, as we were walking up towards 'Christ Church' colledge this old thing pulled up ~ a 1949 Duple Vista escourting a bride to her reception.

Catch you all.

Good to see you're havin' fun Gio, but surely not everything in Ol' Blighty has rusted away?

The Yanks tell me there's plenty of their stuff been shipped that way over the years.

Hi all,

It's been a few days but here's a couple of more interesting cars well sort of!!

A vintage 'Vespa Trike Wagon ' even fitted with a towbar Razz

Then a couple of days later the newer model at Edinburgh Castle.

But the new model isn't ad good as the old as it gets towed Smile

Bus ride in Edinbu !rgh

Post  Giobus on Sun May 12, 2013 3:14 am

Hi All,

While in Edinburgh we took advantage of a classic ~ Old Bus that is !!

It remindered me of the old sitcom dad used to watch ~ 'On the Buses' ~ Butler !!!!!!

The show wasn't my cup of tea, but that was the 'Bay Watch' of the 70's.

Well almost Surprised

Catch you all. Very Happy

Hi all,

We having dinner in the local pub in Stirling this evening and the internet connection is really good here Very Happy
Here's another car a classic ~ 'FIGARO' in cameleon Red/Orange.
Well, not a real classic but more Retro - built by Nissan in 1989 to replicate the 1960's Datsun Fairlady.


Plus one more>>
As we were cruising up the motorway this little kit car pull up along side us wanting to take the next exit. As soon as l mentions the car to Melissa, she had the camera out and 'click'.

He looked across, saw the camera and off he went like we were standing still - mind you we were travelling 75mph (on the GPS).

Must of been the STIG in disguise What a Face

This was no 1600cc Kent motor in this car ! it was a V8 with a heavy breathing Holley on board that roared into life and GONE

Catch you all
