Hi Scrumpy,

Time long, see no!

Hope you can make it on the 26th of March, it'll be great to see you again and we are planning on doing some shows together (myself, my dad, Trevor and Diane and hopefully a few more) which we're really looking forward to. Just need the weather to play ball. . . .

Just to whet the appetite a little bit more for the 26th of March, we'll be bringing along our recent automotive purchase.

It's not a Rover, it is four-wheel drive and it goes like a rocket (won't be my Quattro either).

I wonder what it is. . . ? :D

See you all on the 26th.

Unfortunately other plans have got in the way now :cursing (ie - having to take my daughter to the airport), so I won't be able to make this day as planned. Hopefully I'll be able to make the next one, I shall look out for updates.
Have a good meet up and see you next time! :cool

Hi Hammond,

Pity you can't make it this Saturday, the next one will be the last Saturday in May, ask your daughter to buy you lunch that day! :laughing2

Di,

Nice try but no, it's not a tratter!

As it's you though, I'll give you a clue.

It's silver! :laughing

Hi all, I'm based in the Yate area of the Bristol region and it would be fantastic to meet some likeminded indeviduals who share a passion for the R8 in the local area! I was wondering how do I get myself on the welcome list for any events in the area? Any help appreciated, but just so people know I do not currently own one of these fantastic cars (unfortunately) but am on the lookout (as used to own one) if it makes a jott of difference ha

Hi you could always come along to our meetings, it would be about an hours drive each way for you. Its at the Highwayman Shepton Mallet this Saturday 26th 12.00pm

Is this of any interest to you

Hi,
My uncle has decided that he has to give up motoring and owns a very nice example of the above model with full service history and only 25000 miles on the clock. 12 months MOT. He is aware that the car is worth little but it is far too good to scrap. Do you think any of your members would be interested in the vehicle? The car is in Bradford at the moment but I intend to bring it to Grantham in the near future. Any reasonable offer would be considered.

Regards,

Andrew Driver


If Yes reply to his email address.

Umm, no!

Another clue then, just for you.

It should be much more reliable than a Landie or a Rangie, if the stories I've heard about them (and there are several) are true!

If you get it right before we meet up on Saturday Di, I'll buy you a drink! :D

Di,

That is a quality list there, particularly the German contingent (I've always been a fan of the Cayenne) and yes you are getting warm because they are all four wheel drive, but then I mentioned that at the start anyway! :laughing2

However, the car in question is not on your list, although you are in the right neck of the woods, sometimes.

1234dist - Sort of the closest yet, but only because we nearly went and had a look at one, but then found the *** instead. (The number of asterisks is not a clue!)

Not sure what else I can give as a clue without giving it away, but only a few more days for you all to ponder! :D

I look forward to seeing who suggests what next.

When you say it goes like a rocket, does that mean fast or it just explodes.

My guess is one of 2

Subaru impreza

or

mitsubishi evo
