Tartan Tarmac Meets Are Getting Better & Better!
So after missing out on Aprils TT Meet due to a cycle race shutting all the roads off, I jumped at the chance as soon as they posted the May Meet details up – i wasn’t going to miss out this time!
I decided to bring along the C70 again as it had had some new parts fitted over the last few weeks including a new Alarm Siren, the Stereo Coded, plus a couple odds and ends replaced/fixed etc. On top of that I had done a little write up containing information on what had been done to her over the two years of ownership so people would come over and see what had been done & get some more information on her – even some members of Volvo Owners Scotland came along to show some support.
Just like the two last meets, this months meet was at Motherwell College and as I’m a student there I knew where to go. We got there for 8:35 where it was relatively empty but slowly but surely filling up with people. After a while it was nearly full so I decided to walk around and meet some people and eye up the cars there, everyone was more than welcome to talk about their cars – and the cars…well they were unbelievable!
Now I’ve seen supercars and I’ve also seen modified cars as well but I’ve never seen them in the same place at the same time, best bit of all however, there was no hate between owners and no stupid antics neither – highly unlikely as Police were there.
The cars there were awesome, since i was there last it seemed Supercar Driver was there as there was so many high end cars there since i was last there in March, there was a Ford GT which was owned by a Member of Tartan Tarmac, an Aventador Roadster, a MK1 Honda NSX, a Ferrari F430 and a Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 of all things – one of the ultimate modern Porsche’s ever made, as well as all of them there was a Bentley Bentayga 4.0 V8 Diesel kindly given to Tartan Tarmac by Bentley Glasgow to test out for the weekend.
as far as meets go, this had to be the best one I’ve been to, as well as the Best TT meet I’ve been to as well, the atmosphere was truly amazing and it’s what makes us petrol-heads a brilliant bunch of people. everyone was so friendly and wanted to share their cars with others. All in all a great meet!
Hope You Enjoy!
