    Might as well come out of 'lurking mode' for this thread...

    I am also in Scotland, up in Arbroath(ish). Just got a 355 last month to go with a Lotus Elise 111R, a Lotus Exige S1 190, a MINI Cooper, and some boring stuff.

    Hey Guy, hows things? I live in Glasgow at weekends and London during the week. No Ferrari but a Plymouth Prowler and a couple of others. Next on the list for me is a Diablo VT.
    A
    Thats a nice collection you've got, the 599 is growing on me, as long as it doesnt have the pentagon wheels although i also think its the kind of car that draws you in when you see it in the flesh.

    Nice to meet you Jim, GTS or GTB? A big lotus fan are we, talking about lotus's, have any of you had any experiences with the 340R i think it is called, the sort of racing lotus with a motorbike engine in the back, no doors etc?

    Regards,

    Matthew

    Thank u! ill try get some pictures of them up as soon as the bloody snow goes away!! :(

    I love the 599, a friend has one with the standard wheels, and another wit the upgrades, te standards dont do it justice at all, but i change the wheels on my cars anyway, so im planning on some nicer custom ones :D

    Good post Guy, I thikn it's got all the Scottish lurkers out, 2 so far !!!

    We should have a meet at knockhill some night, they usually do a Top Marques or Dreadnought night which I don't always go on track, just meet with a few mates.

    Maybe as the summer comes in we could get togeather sometime.

    Hi Matthew,
    I went for a GTB, rosso/crema, manual with tubi exhaust and decat. I think it fitted my mental image of a ferrari :)

    As for the Lotus, Mmmmmmmmmm... yeah, I guess I am a bit of a fan. The elise is my 3rd so far so I suppose I must be keen and the S1 Exige was just available through a friend of a friend at the right time. I have had them both on track in the past year but will probably stick to the exige this year. I actually sold an absolute mint Lotus Esprit GT3 to make way for the 355 and wondered if I would regret it.. but thats now a definate NO!! :)

    I have seen a couple of 340R's at Knockhill and they look fun but seems a bit impractical, although they have the same Rover 190 VHPD car engine as my Exige.

    Hi Dave,
    Almost neighbours :) I am originally from Dundee but somehow ended up near Arbroath via Edinburgh and Glasgow.

    the Red one? sadly not - im not sure whose that is, i arrived back from Singapore and it was sitting there. When i left there was only one in Aberdeen (black) now i have seen 3. My friend owns a red one, but not that one.
    Mine is ordered, but not coming, its in Singapore.

    He he, i do try - at least we would have at least 2 cars at knockhill!! :D
