Re: Italian Car Day - St Andrews

I'm certainly hoping to go (if I don't get disowned at home). If you end up going up in a carful we'll have to make sure we see each other somehow.

Yeah we'll have to get something arranged with all the Alfaowners going before hand, so that we all meet up when there!

Nada at the mo!!

Re: Italian Car Day - St Andrews

I'm a definate attendee. Its a great day out, and if we're blessed with the sun, there will be a good selection of cars. And the new venue is a big improvement.

I'll always remember the year 2001 at Falkland. The guy from Trentside had his show stand there, and he had a 1959 Ferrari F1 car on display. It was Mike Hawthorns before he died.

Anyway it was road registered, apparently the only one in the UK and he fired it up and had a few runs on the road with it. Acceleration was amazing, however, the noise was awesome.

Is there a convoy heading up from the East or West anywhere?? I've normally arrived early to watch most of the arrivals, however, I like the idea of arriving amongst a number of other Alfas

I was there, only lived a couple of miles along the road at the time, I had a white punto sporting with for sale signs on it at the time! I remember the Ferrari on the road, amazing! Will need to try and get a convoy from Fife somewhere

Re: Italian Car Day - St Andrews

I'll probably go up and stay overnight the night before. Still to be sorted out.

Well Happy Re: Italian Car Day - St Andrews

I'll be there helping with the organisation again.
Last year was excellent. The weather was really good, and we had some exotica turn up. Shame they only stayed for 2 or 3 hours but good nonetheless.
I remember our last one at Falkland. I saw a chap who was familiar to me, but I couldn't place him. I was going to talk to him, but I changed my mind at the last minute.
Funny thing was, in our next magazine, there was a letter from the very same chap who was enquiring about a Fiat Uno Turbo which was for sale.
He left contact details- Nick Mason c/o EMI records!

You just don't know what you may see or who you'll meet!

I think so!!!

Fraser: I'll keep an eye out for you.

I really am gutted my car cant go, needs a few things sorted before I can drive again in a few months.

I would have been easy for any AO members to spot anyway, the number plate means I cant hide...... and i havent seen another low black 146 with wheels like mine!

Re: Italian Car Day - St Andrews

Further info for those that are going:

I'll have a big black camera bag on my back, a canon camera round my neck, my wife and daughter with me and, if it's sunny, a pair of oakleys on.

No, I know. Too busy to visit the site much these days


It was a good day and it was good to meet you, Unfortunately I didn't get many piccies. I left it until late to go around just when the heavy rain started in the later part of the afternoon.. Managed to get out without getting stuck tho.

Scratch that last comment - I've just seen the pictures in the Image Lounge. Very nice indeed! Looks like it was a scorcher...
