On Sunday roughly forty of us decided to take advantage of the favourable weather forecast and ‘head to the hills – Ferrari, Porsche, Lamborghini, Noble and much much more set off early Sunday morning to blow a hole in the ozone layer.
Here’s a few shots of that Sunday morning out…
Mark and I parked up 0820 hours!
Not mine – but identical!
A good time was had by all!
Just to clarify, as the list of vehicles is quite long we currently have:
Ferrari F355 Spider
Porsche 996 Carrera 4
Volkswagen Golf 2.0 GTD
Mercedes Hymer Motorhome
… and we ‘babysit’ our old 1303 Karmann Cabriolet that was gifted to our daughter!
After meeting a guy at the Trafford Classic Car Show I arranged to buy some 355 wheels from him to put on the Ferrari whilst it’s original wheels are being refurbished. It means I can still use the car and don’t have to resort to propping it up on axle stands. Once I have finished with them I will sell them on and ost likely get all my money back. This weekend I swapped them over so I am now ready to send the wheels away for refurbishing.
Ready for stripping
After that the next job is having the seats re-connolised which will complete the ‘recommissioning ‘ of the car. I then will have brought it back up to its former glory.
This weekend we have been playing with another Ferrari purchase – this ones a ride on car for my wee Grandson Finn – he is still getting used to it, unsure of it when it moves off, so we are getting him bedded in slowly.
All the information about 2014 car shows has now been moved to the ‘Classic Car Show’ page. That will (when I have finished it) include the latest 2015 shows also.

So get the fleet out…
I think that’s the first time in months that the 1303LS has been out.
All the toys out on the drive.

After years of nothing but VW/AUDI Group and Porsche cars I have bought something out of the usual mold. Its Italian too…
I have bought a Ferrari F355 Spider for all those lovely sunny British days that we get. I have posted up a new page for the ‘Prancing Horse’ and will add more pix and info as I get opportunity.
