:hopping: thanks Sylvia!

Worth it for lunch at the Boat House again if nothing else! It was a good trip last year so here's hoping for the same again.

And me too ;) You never know, it might happen - sightings of me in the Celebration are rarer than live photos of Nessie, mind :D

well, there's plenty of photos claiming to be Nessie, so we'll cross our fingers for a 480 claiming to be yours :lol:

I'll be very lucky to be along in a 480! she's still a few points down the to-do list at the moment! haha however i'll be along in the 940 in some capacity! will confirm nearer the time :)

PS: If anyone runs into breakdown issues up close to Aberdeen I do have a number of spares across to parts cars that could I'm sure to be implemented into action if required! :)

Hopefully it won't be a problem but this is very worth knowing, thanks! It might avoid the ignominy of being trailered off home as happened to a certain valued member last time around... ;)

Look forward to meeting you again in Cove - and seeing the 940; haven't been up close to one of those for years since my cousin parted with his.

All the best

That's a great offer - haven't got a spare back box for a turbo I suppose ? :rofl:

Just a 2.0 GT and a spare full stainless steel system I'm afraid hahah! (which will be for sale when I get round to removing it one day!)
