I couldn't find the old spotted thread either....

Spotted another Palacio S2 in Scotland!

Sunday 10th, heading towards Glasgow on the A77 (around Kilmarnock area) at around lunchtime. I was heading south towards Ayr at the time, though not in my Palacio S2 unfortunately :(

Some threads were unfortunately lost in the conversion. I have no idea which threads and I couldn't start looking for them as I don't know what used to be here. And it wasn't I that did the conversion, so I'm not sure how much was actually lost.

Anyway, I doubt anyone's deleted any threads, but some threads are lost :(. I'm sorry about it and wish there was something I could do.

A white SE ( At least I think it was an SE not an S2) in my rear view mirror on the Courtown to Ballygarret road in Wexford Ireland on Saturday 16th July. Very Suprised to see an Elan in Ireland

Black Elan on non-uk plates (red text/white background) on M40 southbound nearing London just as the rain started Saturday (23rd July?) I was on my way back to Heathrow to return to the US and saw my only UK Elan of the trip... because you can't count the M200 at PMs!

I was very excited to spot my first Elan on the road for about 5 years!!! (except Donny & my own)

Last night (27th July) Calipso Red SE reg H6 *** on A2 heading away from London.

I was just about to turn off for Bluewater when I saw it in the right hand lane of the very busy A2. I then felt it only courteous to forget turning off and catch up to flash. Three junctions out of my way later I managed it, though no recognition in return :(

Like I said just three posts ago, I've not seen one in a good few years. Now Three in 1 week!!! It's great.

Yellow Elan Saturday pm (around7?) somewhere between J8 & 9 of M25 heading anticlockwise. I was going the other way and we were both going at pace so I didn't get a good look!

Today Calipso Red probably around 5:45 pm on A2 heading away from London. Again, I was going in the opposite direction.

Timmo,

It was right at the other end of the Maidenhead Road, but I might just surprise you one day (I live quite nearby..)

How's the course going Mr Student?

Cheers

Jim
