"My lovely car now sold onto a very happy new owner.
I still love this marque and I will still be around, preferred selling to breaking, as a great runner and performer"

Only saw 1 75 which was a nice 2004 model and I saw a 2003 ZT.

Did't see any community/club stickers on any of them.

At least the 2 you saw I guess were up and running. The last time I was in Scotland was a couple of years ago and seriously thought about buying a flat up there but then thought about the weather and then changed my mind. How was your holiday then?

Holiday was good, I have family in Lochgelly in Fife who I stay with and my younger brother live in Sterling with his partner and there twin boys that were 6 when we was up there, so we was busy driving between to two.

Plus we took our new puppy with us so we were restricted on where we could go.

It is true they are pretty. Here is looking at you kid! I will give you a call next time I am up your way Anna. I have a good deal of exploring to do. I know Glasgow, Inverness and Edinburgh. My first medical repat was back in 1984 when I flew out to Majorca in an air ambulance from the UK. We picked up a middle aged man who had suffered a major stroke and he had to get back to Inverness before his travel insurance ran out and he needed special treatment in Scotland. It went very well and years later by coincidence I met up with him and his wife whilst I was on holiday in Tunisia. A small world eh! He had made a good recovery in his speech and mobility. That is how I know Inverness. Did I spell it right? :)

You did spell it right :D and you made me smile with 'here's looking at you kid'....my Dad used to say that all the time, have been thinking a lot about him to today so a strange co-incidence I hear that phrase! Indeed, next time you're coming to Glasgow, let me know! x
