    What d'ya think it is a fiat?

    Well here be my mini report from my weekend in gods country. (scotland)

    I headed up friday straight from work - rush hour traveling wasnt too bad, and plenty of fun was had with plonkers on the motorway. But im still trying to figure out why I ended up overtaking an x3 a total of 11 times, without changing my speed once on cruise control

    Anyways I was staying in the travelodge in stirlinkirk - Short hand for in the middle of no-where between stirling and falkirk, good place it turned out as I got a free invite to go clubbin on the saturday night, and was just in right place for some good roads.

    Saturday lunchtime I was greeted by nozza (norry.d on here) and we went for a run up to the pub for some foodage. I then was very brave, asked about insurance and handed the crazy scotsman the keys - Followed several hours of driving around pretty much everywhere in the middleast of scotland, with nozza describing the turbo as everything from orgasmic, to the most fun you can have with your clothes on, and then also better than sex the lad clearly has some issues. Enough of me rattling on, here are some pictures that where taken *SOMEWHERE* in scotland facing the fourh road / rail bridges.





    My New desktop background






















    And the very disturbed man himself - Big Nozza!



    Anyway, the tail behind the topic title - While I was readying myself for the night out, norry was having a smoke outside, and noticed a lad n dad looking at the car, so went over n had a chat, basically the jist is the bloke asked 'is that what i think it is' norry's response being very quick witted 'what you think it is, a fiat?' lol I was creased when he told me

    Anyway, a very good weekend had by me on my travels

    740odd miles I think it was in the end
    24.1 gallons of shells finest consumed.

    And im now skint bar the pre saved car mod money



    p.s. sorry for rambling on

    Norry drove like you do on your driving test to start with - dont think the turbo was warmed up for the first 20 minutes

    the pics are good but the main thing when you do drives like this is you have fun driving which you clearly did, the one you said is your new screen saver is the best.
