Yesterday I took my 964 C4 up to the Scottish Borders to see my cousin, taking the Friday off work. He lives near Biggar and to get there is a 2 1/2 hour run each way. I like to try and keep my car running throughout the year, but do minimise over the winter when the roads in Northumberland are salted. The odd run into Newcastle after some rainy weather has washed it away is about the best I can usually manage - good for keeping everything turning though.

Anyway, forecast was good, sun shining as I set out. Got going at about 8.20am. No more than a mile up the road and I'm sitting behind a tractor towing a salt trailer! Not what I was expecting. Soon past though and a clear road up the A68 to the border at Carter Bar (watch the cameras on the Scottish side). I was settling into the drive, full tank, and some decent tunes (had the speakers put back into the rear parcel shelf last year) and got to thinking... we often see pics of our cars from outside set in interesting places - but what about pics from inside the car? Just enough info from the inclusion of part of the dash, a quarter light, or door frame to know where we are and what's important!

Here's a few pics of my Friday day out... and needless to say the car was properly parked at the time!

Anyone else blowing the cobwebs off? Let's see where you've been!

Always good to get behind the wheel, I haven't driven mine since Sept 2017, hoping to be back on the road come May.

Looks like fun day out. I'm struggling to ID what's ahead of the Jag....Ferrari 458?

Here's one I thought was quite cool. Through the window and with a spot of reflection action going on too. Main thing is getting the car out. Off to the west coast of Scotland later this week to join up with a 993 C4S, a Jag of some description and a sporty (that's a relative term) Triumph. Will try to put some travel news up here if anyone's interested...

Love the reflective photo but concerned there are too many of the car being washed/scrubbed/swirled by other people...

Maybe some photos of a 993 C4S will improve your posts. Grin

Great thread idea.

I rather like this pic as my first run out after buying it. Nothing beats a 1,900 test drive Thumb

That's a pretty decent inaugural run, Zingari! Nice looking hotel too...sets those D90s off rather well.

See you on Thursday Tombri. We'll try not to be late...

Couple of pics from last year, it was late sept if I remember correctly, amazing sunset down here in Poole.

The forward facing picture is looking over the old bridge heading towards Sturmister Marshall from Wimborne,

The side view is going round Holes Bay road in Poole harbour.

The sky was crazy that night, no filters were used. Excuse the bulb out on the tach Smile

Great shots Andy...particularly like the one through the screen. And your car on a mere 50,000 odd miles too. Mines three times that now and still proudly wearing it's flag mirrors.

OK, so this doesn't quite fit the criteria of an inside pic but I'm making allowances on account of a decent line-up - IMO! Here we're at the Crinan Hotel on the Scottish west coast. Had a good day today, taking in Oban and the Ardfern marina. Local driving tomorrow and heading home Sunday, via Glasgow. Thankfully it's been dry. The E Type needed a bucket and sponge this morning after overnight rain! No such problems for the 993 C4S or my 964.

Great shot ,
I followed that 993 out of Tesco’s in Invernesss and up the A9 heading south last Saturday.......beautiful looking S...I was in the Cayenne .....she looked great hunkering down from sliproad to main A9 ...and the sound is great .....

The plate caught my eye too as my surname is a ‘U’ ......

I am going to have to scratch this air cooled itch albeit late to the party ......

964 was always my favourite ...still on my radar ....

Thought I'd finish the story off as now back in Northumberland after a top weekend playing on the west coast. Highlights have been the Hollow Mountain (a Drax hydro-electric power station) and the architecturally amazing St Conan's Kirk - both close together on the shore of Loch Awe.

With a pair of 911s, an E-Type and TR6 we attracted plenty of attention. Scenery...well it was a nice part of Scotland so enough said on that. Roads? For the most part pretty good though very narrow in places with single track and passing places on the menu at one point for around 25 miles. That got tedious by the end but was the only way to get round a flooded (and closed) road to Lochgilped. Oban was a great place to visit - that's where we saw the Harleys.

Finally, after we all went our separate ways the rear window of my friend's 993C4S quite literally exploded! It doesn't seem to have been anything external though he did say the rear de-mister was 'always on'. Could that cause a screen to do this?

So, west coast as a top Porsche destination. Yes!
