I bought my 350z in December so have just started getting out and about with it.  It was great to meet some other owners and say hi at Leeds Castle today.  Thank you for saving me from the perils of the public car park!

Hi Fiona. It was nice to meet you and glad you enjoyed joining us.
Is that your bug in the pics?
Hope to see you and the car at another meet.

Chas might be a idea to pass on some of your detailing tips to Fiona as soft top owners

Hi, Yes, that's my bug :-)  I bought 'Pedro' in San Francisco in 2009 (when the $ was 2 to the £ ) Shipped him over here and then drove him UK to Singapore.  I was originally asked to display him on the Drivers Union stand at Motors by the Moat but he's getting a revamp at the moment and wasn't ready in time.  Back up plan was to go in my friends Exige but then I spotted you guys in the queue while I was waiting for her.  Thanks for letting me join in  :-)  

And it turns out one of the Drivers Union members used to be your club chairman too...Giles Meyrick

Haha, yes well my excuse for the wax smears on my car is that I was cleaning it at my dads house when my godfather rang to say he'd broken down on a busy road nearby, so I had to hurriedly buff the rest off and rush off to rescue him.  By the time I got back it was raining.

Any recommendations on a soft top cleaner would be good ....though I can't reach the bit of bird poo that's in the middle, will have to persuade a tall person to help out!

Hi Fiona :welcometonissansportz:

 

It was a lucky coincidence that you were out of your Z just as we were arriving.  Shame the chap in the high vis didn't give us a chance to say more than two words before moving me on!

 

It was great to meet you and have your car on our stand.  I've found a few pictures of Pedro that I took at the castle back in 2013!

I remember when the exchange rate was like that.  A lot of folk on here were importing wheels and body kits, etc. for their cars around that time.  Not any more!

 

I saw your friends Lotus in the paddock.  I like!  What do I have to do to get a passenger ride in that?! :lol:

 

Ah yes, Giles.  There are still quite a few people on here who know our first Chairman.  Was he there yesterday?  And what's he driving now?  He had a Fezza for a short time and then a Lambo, but I lost touch with him after that.

 

Oh, and I've got in touch with the chap who did the clear wrap on my Z and he's still in business.  So I'll PM you the details in a mo.

 

Paul :)

Ah yes, I think that was the year Gem got in trouble for hanging upside down doing acrobatics on the Helicopter.  Just one uptight lady complained, the helicopter crew thought it was hilarious. We spent ages at the end of the day taking photos of our cars with them and the helicopter.  I have a great photo of Pedro with the Navy guys and girls posing with him with one of them stood on his roof and some others posed to look like our cars were being unloaded from the heli (it was a big Sea King).  Good fun :-) 

 

This is Giles car now, I got a shot of him on the way out

Blimey.  It's lucky you were both on best behaviour this time!
