    Anyone out there based in the North East?

    I am working in London but my car is at home in East Yorkshire and I don't know of anyone else with one in my area! (An F Car, not just a car damn it!)

    Just wondering if there is anyone to meet up with!

    Cheers

    Oh Hell....

    Woke up this morning and read my message again. Could I sound more arrogant?!!! I certainly didn't mean to sound like I was having a go at non F Car owners! Trust me, at 1am after several pints of Guinness and a bottle of Chianti it sounded really funny!

    Sorry if anyone got the wrong end of the stick on that one!

    Ed

    By the way....Any Elise owners up my way either?

    Ah, the wrong side of the Bridge!

    I am based near Beverley, so if you fancy meeting up one weekend, that would be great!

    Ed, Beverley is not that far from me about 45 mins drive. No problem meeting up one day. I have two good friends in my area that have a Lambo Countach and Lotus Esprit V8 and TVR Cerbra.

    It a nice drive out that way. You can always cross the Bridge my way. My parents own a great Inn in Susworth called the Jenny Wren..

    Nice!

    Look forward to that! Will try to get my brother to come down in the Elise too! I never had the heart to let it leave the family after the Gumball, so I sold it to my Brother for a steal. He was happy anyway!

    Will let you know when I head back up to Yorkshire. My contract finishes in London at the end of the month!

    SOunds good to me! I was in Huddersfield the day after Boxing Day with the Spider. I was at University there for 4 years, so I have a soft spot for the place...

    Ricky's Bar 2000 still on Leeds Road?

    They used to have a half decent strip night from time to time!!!!!

    Hi Simon

    Happy New Year to you (and all f-chatter people)

    How is the spider going after the service and belts? Hope the wallet did'nt suffer much!!!! The TVR is going in soon for a seeing-to, and I fear I will be in my bare feet by the time the dealer has done robbing me :cry:

    Would be good to all meet up for a blast.

    yep,Rickys is still there too!! You're a braver man than me venturing in there though!! Funny old place Huddersfield.I don't mind leaving the 355 in Leeds centre on a night,but I think its fair to say in Huddersfield theres not many with relations in aristocracy to put it politely,so there would not only be no wheels,but probably no car.And if it did reappear it would be with neons underneath.If youre ever over here with your Spider then let me know or i'll meet up halfway or something!! Does your roof leak?Every time I take a bird out she moans that she's getting soaked! Leaks on the passenger side so I don't care!

    Right,so by my reckoning we'd have 2 355 Spiders,a 348,aTVR and a 328 all round East/South/West Yorks area,plus anyone else who wants to come along.What does everyone think about meeting up somewhere near the M62/M1 interchange say 1 Sat or Sun mid morning?? As I said I can't do a Sunday unless its the 25th this month or 8th next month,but any other days fine.Any comments??

    When I was in Huddersfield I had a Mini Cooper and so no one really touched it. There is no way I would leave the spider there though! Good town for a beer though!

    The roof leaked a bit on the passenger side (LHD) so, again, I dont really care! Only had it 3 weeks, so time will tell!

    This all sounds good to me! I am back in Yorkshire as of the 1st Feb, so any time after that should be fine. If I have to choose between meeting and a Leeds Utd game however.....

    That said, the way things are, meeting takes preference!!!!!!!

    Any ideas of a route to take?

    Just saw your pic of your 355,very nice!! Why don't we say the weekend of 7/8 Feb either day? There's loads of routes we could take over some wicked roads!! Plus some fantastic tunnels under Leeds city centre!! I've a tubi on mine as has Justin on his 348 so it'll be a good laugh!

    Looks good to me. No Tubi at the moment, but I do have a stainless sports exhaust of some description. Doesn't sound bad at all.....

    Have a horrible feeling I may need a Tubi soon though! I need to get a picture of the car at Elland Road too.... (Before it becomes a first division ground....) Don't laugh....Please!

    As opposed to now when he can get himself in all kinds of trouble, all by himself!

    Let alone with any help from the other Red Scum players!
