New Owner - Aberdeenshire

Post by lawsonpaul »

Just become proud owner of 1989 Excel - Calypso Red. Unfortunately it will displace my 1979 MGB GT. Based in Alford, 25 miles west of Aberdeen - any other Excel owners in the area?

Welcome! :D

As someone said to me when I bought my car last year and introduced myself on the forum:

"She'll make you very happy, and occasionally sad, but you'll always love her... :wink: "

This has proved to be very true...

There are a number of Scottish owners on the forum, no doubt one will look in before long!

Dundee (originally) - but now displaced to Darlington ;-)

I think we have at least two close to Aberdeen and a couple around Inverness ?
SORN - just say NO!

Fit like?
I haven't been on the forum for a wee while so have only just spotted your post.

There are a few Excels in the area. Our local 'group' includes an immaculate white SE, just a mile or two outside Alford, and a couple of calypso red SE's, one in Aberdeen and mine out in Oldmeldrum. I spotted a blue Excel out Rothienorman way yesterday. In fact I was just about to 'spot' it in the this section when I saw your post.

My best advice is to drive her as often as you can. I use mine almost daily and have had very little trouble.
