Hi O Sleepy One.
Hope to be there weather permitting on the Sunday.
Had hoped to have new wheels fitted but I think I'll need to wait til Harewood House for them.
Nothing organised at this end so if I am there I'll see you at Abington about half nineish.

WIMP :lol: :lol: :lol:
Biggar is the only place I have visited where it rained and we all went home with a tan ??????????
Keeping a weather eye out myself but I'll probably still risk it.
Food & drink bought, camera batteries on charge, car has had a quick spit and polish and the tank is full.
Fingers crossed.
See you at CumbriaVag ?????????????

Arrived about tenish and spotted this on the way in.

Image

Looked pretty tidy.
After a coffee this was all I could see

Image

But after 40 days and 40 nights the rains abated to reveal this

Image

YAHOO the rains OFF so camera out and time to get busy.
Just did all the usual suspects

Neil's pride and joy.

Immaculate as usual.

Mine.

Image

Manky as usual.

Never so happy to see a car as I was to see this one.

Great to have a chat and see you at a show, hope you had a pleasant drive back home.

All the way from "sunny" Ayr Gary and his good lady.

Image

SUPERB.

Also from Ayrshire / Glasgow Ben's pride and joy.

A work in progress and progressing very well.

My sincerest apologies to Gayle and Nathan for not getting any pics but I know that Gayles was having a wee kip after the long trip and I didn't realise that Nathan had put his into the show part til it was too late. Please accept my apologies.

Missed your patter and the DIY lessons but had the added bonus of Colin's company that was totally unexpected.
Really poor turnout compared to last year but that was down partly to the horrendous weather forecast.
Next VW event I'll be at is CumbriaVag and then Harewood House so maybe catch up with you then.
Was hoping to go to Lauder this Sunday with Colin & Neil but we are having visitors Friday to Tuesday so that's put paid to that.
