Hi Derek, good to hear from you. Hope things are going well for you and your business is progressing and the family all OK. Most of the names you knew are still around and doing well. Our New Lanark meeting seemed to go down very well and the meal was great!! Plans are already afoot for another meeting next year. Keep an eye on the forum and if you are free PLEASE join us.
The Nitro was collected from Head office last month and for a guy who loathes 4x4 it truly honestly is a great wee thing drives so nicely Trev was spot on!
I myself still have the Saab 9-5 Aero and though invisible and small is serving me very well.
Company? well after a false start Feb 07 and a re-start Mar 08, things are finally "feeling" right in that in this Credit crunch" shocked world we are winning orders and have secured £400K in the orderbook with a similar amout promised so we are on budget and,,,,a UK wide market exclusive Advertising campaign is about to be launched (if anyone here has designed magazine adverts Man, I really need a favour please pm me!)
So I can plan forward slightly. I DO! have a distant plan brewing and all I will say is watch this space guys!
I will try to attend the Scottish meet next year however,,,,
I have owned and driven almost everything I have wanted from Corvettes and Trans Am's to Triumphs and Saab's but one of the most memorable is still my 300C Hemi for so many reasons
I miss it dreadfully for a grown man it's like a girlfriend you loved and dumped you! and you want her back?
Well I plan on trying to do just that, maybe never again with a Hemi but a 300C so I will stick around and help out contribute and sit on the side lines till I am summonsed from the bench to play again:fing02:
If I go new then yes as we only have the 3.0 V6 CRD and the SRT8, if secondhand, I wouldn't like to speculate on what my "sources" would find for me at the time, but as prices here in the UK are at best, weak on large engined cars, I may go out and be a naughty non-ecologist,,,,,
It's running brilliant thanks mate, no issues as yet..... a slight touch of corrosion on the front wheels at the centre caps but I'm waiting to see if the rears develop rather than make 2 trips! Still get the occasional touch of shimmy when braking at 70mph+ but I'm thinking it's more down to irregular pad material build-up on the discs as everything else checks out fine.
Am I glad I bought it? YES!
Badger,check your TRE's and/or steering rack for play,I'm on my 3rd rack,its a weakness,the 2nd rack only lasted 6 weeks,my warranty runs out in november,my car's gonna get the massivelly big once over in october I can tell you.
