Scottish italian car day 2008.

Anyone planning on going down to St Andrews this year for the annual scottish italian car day?

I am hoping to arrange a convoy to go down. Starting with a gathering in aberdeen, meeting more at stonehaven, then meeting more at the other end of the tay bridge, then straight to st. andrews.

Please post if you are interested.

Also, if you want your car "on display" make sure you see the sticky at the top of the page.

Andrew.

Re: Scottish italian car day 2008.

Hello, Tell me more. I am interested. I have just cancelled my 159 ti sw 2.4 order after 25 weeks of waiting with no light at the end of the tunnel!! However, I will take delivery of a Stromboli Grey 159 SW 2.4 Lusso with loads more/added spec by 9/5/8. Can't wait. Talk about 'clock-watching'!! Anyways, give me the low-down. I am just north of Edi into bonnie Fife! Ciao.
Alessandro.

Re: Scottish italian car day 2008.

Sounds like a very nice car you have lined up there.

Don't know if you are familiar with the event but every year the AROC hold an Italian car day at Craigtoun park in St Andrews. Always loads of cars to see! i forget the date but i will update this post shortly. The Alfaowner.com members will have a designated "display area" as usual for which to show of our cars.

Of course you will see trade displays, club stands and model shops to spend some money on some brilliant toys

Hi there

Craigtoun Park has a strict 'no dogs' policy. I went up there for a family day out a few weeks after last years SICD and was not allowed in with the dog.

Re: Scottish italian car day 2008.

Hi ransoman,it seems the latest update for sun 25th for meeting the Dundee folk is to head over the Tay bridge (to Fife side),take the left turnoff to Tayport/Newport,and then left into the carpark for 09:30,so if people still want to meet at Mc Donalds carpark at Forfar junction about 09:00 to 09:15 and head down to the muster point,that `ll be great.

(hope I`m not jumping in on anyones plans).
Andy.

Actually mate, that is brilliant (I have been umming and aahing about times all day). I am not sure if i am going to get many people starting from aberdeen, but i think i will say, convoy (me) leaves aberdeen at 8:10, meet you and anyone else at macdonalds for 9:00 then go to the tay bridge car park for 9:30. Sounds like a plan and a half

Only hitch though, i have a dodgy wheelbearing (still, won't be fixed untill thursday next week) so my speed can't go over 70mph.

Oh yeh, for anyone that doesnt know, dont look for a yellow 145, I am now driving a grey 147 2.0 Too subtle i know so i will be getting some red serpants on sunday

Cheers.

Re: Scottish italian car day 2008.

I too think that I`ve got a dodgy rear left wheel bearing,but it `s never stopped me putting on my lead shoes ,I `m not sure if they call it a "trait" I`ve had it for four years?? and no-one can say for sure if it`s okay or not!! Hope your lovely 147`s okaydokaley ), and will see you (all) on sun morn.,

Re: Scottish italian car day 2008.

Does anyone object if I put these meeting points up on Pistonheads? We would probably get a mix of italian cars.

Re: Scottish italian car day 2008.

ok folks. The final convoy plan is here:

the convoy will begin at asda at the bridge of dee at 8:10 and will then head south.

First stop will be at the macdonalds car park at the forfar junction, hope to be there for 9:00 to leave at 9:10.

Then onwards to the tay bridge car park for 9:30 (southbound on the tay bridge, left at the roundabout, then left again to the park) leaving at 9:40.

Finally, and hopefully with a big convoy (because i will get lost otherwise ) we will join up with our friends from the south at the Petheram Bridge car park just outside st Andrews for 10:00.
