Well folks we had a pretty good season despite the somewhat dismal weather early on in the year. We managed most of our monthly meetings, a few car shows, processions / gala days, and had our 4th Classic Car Day on 1st September.  Despite the cold cloudy and windy weather on the day we attracted a number of folk from outside the area including from Ayrshire Abedeen shire, Falkirk, Edinburgh and Fife included, which is great and of course anyone who cares to join us is very welcome.

2013 started off with our annual drinks get together in Platform 3 in Linlithgow High Street on Thursday 3rd January and a good time it was!

Our 1st regular 2013 monthly meet was on the Saturday 27th April, and we also were successful in May and June so we did not badly.We also turned out for the Marches in June with Joe and the Jeep winning a prize….disguised in star wars outfits (see below).

July’s meeting saw sun once more and the appearance of the Sylva, Alastair’s new toy, which was the platform for the film of us visiting our annual Bathgate Steelyards show with the Harleys in early August.  Click on links to view – http://youtu.be/-MC2a8C6cl0 and http://youtu.be/L_q2nzjtpb8

We had a busy start to August with four cars in the Ferry Fair parade along with the other local guys who had Jowett Jupiters, an old Ford Van and a lot of motor bikes.

Our late August meeting attracted a lot of cars given the weather was distinctly ‘iffy’ but clearly the rain brings folk out! Martin joined us with his remarkable Bentley R-Type Special..an impressive sight and size!

We got out half a dozen cars and Jeeps on the Marches this year in the sun and the warmth.  The guys had a great time entertaining the folk who were packed at the side of the road…..happy Marches!!

Hi All – We’re back in action again for the new season having had our start up day at the Farmers Market on 28th April with a few hardy souls turning out and a very welcome visit from Martin and Julie Ewart in their Bentley.

This was followed by our 26th May Farmers Market, road run and lunch at the Torphichen Inn and a visit to Donaldson’s School’s Spring Fayre to join and support  the JockMogs….an excellent sunny and warm day.

We’re receiving entries all the time for our forthcoming Classic Car Day on 2nd September this year…..so keep them coming and see you then!

On Saturday 24th September 2011 after our usual Farmers Market appearance eight of us ventured out on our 1st scheduled meeting road run.  We headed for Fife across the two bridges in gloriously sunny weather.  The Elgin Hotel in Charlestown was our venue of choice for lunch, used by many other classic car clubs. The pic shows the guys looking for the way home!

We look forward to seeing you at our last meeting and road run for the season on 22nd October.

Once again for our 2nd classic car day the weather smiled upon us and a brilliant day was had by all.  We attracted about the same number of cars as last year but a complete change with many more classics and fewer super cars than last year.  For full coverage and pictures see the Classic Car Day page or photos pages.

We took a number of cars over the hills to Bathgate Steelyard recently on 30th July to support Enterprising Bathgate in their new local event and you can follow some of the detail courtesey of Alastair’s clip.

We were joined by the XMembers rods and custom cars – http://www.xmembers.co.uk (see pics http://www.badgersb.com/galleries/bathgate%20custom%20show2011/bathgate.html) and the Dunedin chapter of the Harleys and a great morning was had by all…..including those who were interviewed by Radio Grapevine!

…..and what do you think of the day so far..?

We were out in force at the Marches where we had a number of cars out in the procession…..Austin Healey, Sunbeam Talbot, Austin 7 Van, Morgan Sports, Rover, and Jeep.

You need full gear to survive Marches Day…….Joe and the Jeep all set to go!

Trust you enjoyed the procession….a brilliant day as always!

On Sunday 5th September in glorious sunshine we hosted our very 1st Linlithgow Classics Car Day + attracted about 60 classic cars from car clubs + individual owners from round the country .

Apologies – there’s a glitch on the site, which we’re attempting to fix! To see the pics from the day click on Photos; Members Cars; Photo galleries + then click on the ‘yellow Ferrari! Thanks

Fiona Hyslop MSP (http://www.fionahyslop.com/) took time out in her busy schedule of electioneering to visit our 1st Farmers Market show of the 2010 season on Saturday 24th April.  The yellow Westfield must have caught the Minister’s eye as being the right colour for the SNP..!

The group joined in the fun to support this year’s Ferry Fair in South Queensferry in glorious sunshine on Saturday 14th August.  We joined the Jowett Owners Club + other local classics in the cavalcade to wow the local population.  Real fun…everyone should try it!

The day after on Sunday 15th a number of the group also visited the Biggar Classic Show – a sea of classic cars, commercial vehicles, miltary vehicles, fire engines + motor bikes, together with classic jumble + stalls….another great day out in the sun.
