Thirlestane Castle 2015, a Sunny Day North of the Border.

I spent an excellent day north of the border with some of the Scottish Region at the Thirlestane Castle Show. The morning drive up the A697 was great, with the sun shining and the road clear and dry. I got to Thirlestane at around 9:45 and made my way to the club stand.
The was a good cross section of cars on the stand, with various Cooper and non-Cooper models.

...and this very nice looking 1965 Mustang. It made a change to see one in road trim and not ready for the HSCC.

Nice pics Surf. I saw a Thames pickup in a spray shop only the other day. Not something you see very often.

I quite like the Mantis too. ':)'
