Dill - whereabouts are you travelling up from? If from the NEast and you're doing the A1 or via Coldstream then perhaps we can go up in convoy (I'm based near Duns) smile

Ha - this "rogue" Portofino turned up (one of two actually, the other owner has already joined the forum!) so with my "hat" on I went over to leave a note but then Marco turned up and claimed it!

Will post pics later...

Re: Scottish Italian Car Day 29th May Hopetoun House - 29/05/2022 15:49

Oh and welcome in advance to the forum Portofino Glen who was the owner of the other Porty, sportingly accompanied by camera-wielding daughter smile

Re: Scottish Italian Car Day 29th May Hopetoun House - 29/05/2022 20:43

Thoroughly enjoyable day, fine weather (not hot) and good to be out and about with like-minded folk crazy about Italian cars again smile

Great efforts from Rob and Angelo to come up from Carlisle and good to see a new face from Glasgow in Glen in his Porty, hope you can join us at our monthly evening meets in Newhouse/Livingston thumb

Scott and Craig's LE's were looking minty and we'll be seeing a lot more of Alan and his 16v now's he's up in God's country cool

My lad Ben suggested moseying round the House after it all quietened down, there was a deal for SICD ticket-holders so in fact it turned out very enjoyable and welcoming - it's a lived-in house and the residents seem to be generous with what people can see/touch/experience. Assistants all very friendly too.

We’ve missed this fantastic venue. Massive turnout, spilling over into another car park, which continually grew all day.

Had many in-depth conversations with strangers and great compliments on the work done to my car, very humbling.

Brian, missed you today mate. Hope your road trip is going well. Great to meet up again with everyone, hope to meet up in a few weeks at Thirlstane Castle

Hi Glen and a formal welcome, congrats on joining so fast laugh

As I mentioned on Sunday June 19th there is a big meet at Thirlestane by Lauder - although entries are officially "in" if you are interested I will approach the organisers to see if you can join us on the pitch.
