Keswick Report

You'll probably get the full drink induced story from the guys who stayed over but as we had to come home to relieve the baby sitter and be in a fit state for tomorrow......thought I'd just stick a couple of foto's up until the rest return.

Many thanks for Marlon for putting it together and Colin for the run which was great fun........the Saxo driver

Here ya go................

Re: Keswick Report

Hope you all had a great time and am looking forward to reading the stories, had to cancel plans to drive up on Saturday as my 3 year old daughter was ill enough to have to spend the night in hospital on Friday.

I had washed and cleaned the car in preperation, ah well...

I will be heading up the M6 this afternoon so if anyone driving south sees a black 155 heading north - it might have been me..

Re: Keswick Report

Hi I had a brilliant day out all the 155's were put through their paces & few warm engines i think. What happend to the Q4 did it even set off. The route was a challange & a few talked about scary moments. I started behind speedfreak but i did not have the balls!! to throw my 1.8 around like the v6 so i was happier towards the back of the convoy.

Looking forward to some more stories.

Re: Keswick Report

My full apologies guys! My bag was packed the alarm was set and my baby washed and polished....but....

The reason I didn't come down on the Friday was because it was a works leaving do for one of my mates, the reason I didn't make it on the saturday as planned was the blonde, 21 year old accounts girl that came back with me from said works do so you have my apologies but I am quite happy with my choice!

Next time!

Nik I hope the kid's well!

Re: Keswick Report

Looks like Marlon wasn't the only one to sustain damage...driving back last night there was huuuuuge thud on what I thought was the B-pillar or doorskin. Checked last night and today...nothing Checked again later on and found a dirty great hole in the wing mirror cover How the hell am I gonna match my expensive shade of red ........suppose I should be thankful it wasn't the windscreen!

Re: Keswick Report

Oh god my head hurts

Whose idea was it to go clubing?

Well this was one weekend we won't forget in a hurry Thanks guys, me, Q and the 155 had a brill time, it was a real pleasure leading 15 or so cars on a merry dance round the Lake District, just a shame we were held up by a few lesser cars. There were quite a few bemused looks from people waiting to pull out of junctions or mistakenly pulling into passing places to let a couple of red Alfas past only to discover there rather a lot more hiding round the corner!

We took two cameras with us only to discover that neither had any film in them so you have to wait for the others to post. Jason has a nice shot of Q amputating Speedy's septic finger at lunchtime.

Strangely enough someone (not from our lot) chundered all over a table later on around the time he was showing it to people

Amazingly no one chundered at the nightclub when Chris's trousers fell down while he was giving it some funky moves on the dance floor
Mind you this could explain crashedit's falling down the stairs episode later on.

Everyone is getting a haircut like MT's now after he spent half the night with a group of women round him touching his head and exclaming "Oh its sooooo soft!"


Hopefully I won't remember anything else, however if I do I be sure to post

Re: Keswick Report

Well where do i start...........................

Twas a great day out and Keswick won`t be the same after it was terrorised by a pack of 155`s

From totally overrunning the petrol station before our nice gentle drive through the country to the makeshift operating table in a pub to Gay Bar where Jason found the virtual skin wear just hope he did`nt put any to use

And watching the faces of the other drivers who thought they had pulled over to let a car past on a single track road only find another 16 identical motor`s following

I think we had a bit of everything ...........sideways Alfa`s .........pulling over to let a certain somebody who wanted to be taken from behind leave there dinner behind attempted surgery in a pub.........more spew later in the evening and some dodgy photo`s from the pub that Jason and Marlon will no doubt be sharing with you all

Anyway was good to see everyone there and even better looking in the mirror at the convoy behind and i`m sure there will be more stories to follow

And what happened to Quinn he was in the pub then vanished and this morning we were gonna meet up with yer and we all got sick of waiting

Sorry u lot ...honestly didn't realise u were waiting ...all I remember
is saying to Andy that I might drive back into Keswick today...BUT...when
I woke up, I felt sooooo bad that I just had breakfast, a few cuppas and
headed back...

after we came out the Golden Lion and hung around...I was there
talkng to loads of poeple...but...u all drifted off to this club and I was
just left waiting fer a taxi (which took half a fooking hour...and I only
had one ciggie left) ...had no idea where you'd all gone

hehehe...I actually had NO idea what u were doing today...

...anyway, Q, what was all that business with tousling me hair?

BMW 635csi, but I also love Alfas, 155s in particular

Re: Keswick Report


Also...Speedy...just realised, when u asked me to tell u who u
looked like, I MEANT to say Charlie Sheen...and not the famous
retired F1 driver (inspired by yer missus) or Mr. Edmonds
(once again. ur gal came up with THAT...NOT me)

...also, I know I was half-cut by about 9:00pm BUT Crashedit was piling
em away ...AND I still aint sure which one was Marlon and which
was Jason... ...er...

...BUT...at least I know now that MT is Spartacus
