I'm here, just waiting to pick up the Griff on Wednesday. I'm between Ruthin & Corwen, about a mile from Clocaenog Forest, and about 1/2 hr away from Evo Testing Country.

Welsh born & bred, but not always around the Ruthin area. Brought up in the Flint area, but not the town itself, went to school in Mold.

Hello Nick, you used to be my dentist ;-)
Another ex Abergele boy here. This summer I'll be mainly driving the Porsche-baiting MX-5 Turbo

Hello Nick,

We're still on Anglesey, green elise, big fat yellow stripe. Met you at Ty Croes when you just had a humble elise, pending a 111s IIRC.

Congratulations on the new car

Regards, Neil

Went down the Nant Y Garth the other day and saw a Landrover in the stream that runs alongside. Obviously a farmer lost it thinking he was driving a car that handles better than the he was in!

Small world! I left Bryn Alyn in 1984. The zimmer frame is on order.

Did you go to Yale College?

I saw that too. The railings were missing from there anyway due to an earlier off.

There is so much orange tape down there and so many holes in the fence these days.

If anybody is interested, as soon as our spangly new workshops are sorted I will sort something out for you all to come and have a nose around.

Is anybody planning to be out watching the Astra Stages Rally in April? Maybe a good chance to organise a meet? I don't mind acting as guide for the day.

Used to live in Penygroes (nr. Caernarfon), and then Porthmadog - will be moving back once all my debts are paid. Always loved going for a quick thrash on the backroads around Rhosgadfan and Fron - or a nice blat from Caernarfon - Waunfawr - Rydd Ddu and over the top back to Penygroes.


I will return.....

Hi Pinin, I'm also from Prestatyn.
Have a look for either a black SLK or a Blue Focus - both with a Pistonheads sticker on the windscreen.
