Back in the Fold

Postby CallumM » Mon May 15, 2017 8:29 pm

Hi Guys & Girls
Not been active on here for quite some but after much deliberation I decided on a new weekend toy to blow of the cobwebs. After having various Loti over the years including the 340R, Exige, 2 S1 160's the Evora and not to forget the R400 I fancied an S1 Honda Elise, however started looking at the options, as you do and thought I would try the X-Bow. Loved the 340R when I had it and never really got the benefit of it after selling it to Gareth pretty much as soon as I stripped it down and re-built it so thought the concept of the X-Bow was pretty similar i.e. no roof and no doors :D

Hope to catch up soon for some overdue road runs and trackdays.

Cheers Callum (cammy)

Nice. There was one on one of the Frolics a few years back but I haven't seen another.

Welcome back fella!

Don't think we've had a X-bow in the fleet here. I think Father Gibson cams close a long time ago tho...?

Hi Cammy, it's been a while. I am sure the xbow will be fun.
Your original S160 is still going strong, and had an outing to Donnington last month.

Is that our original Cammy, used to distract me by ploughing through fields on the way to KH?

Hi Cammy, welcome over here :wavey
No idea about discs but I'm looking forward to seeing your car out on a run, need to get one organised soon. Any pics of it?

Why not go back to your original Forum name Cammy?

Hi Tut

Not planning on ploughing any more fields :roll:
Cammy seems like many moons ago, the years have passed and the number plate is gone :lol:

Hope to see you soon

Hi Callum, welcome back, hope the family are well :mrgreen:

Would love to get a nose round the X-Bow sometime, are you still out Rosemill way?

The R400 went to London and is now in Belgium, owned by an ex-Spa instructor, so is in good hands 8) :thumbsup

Hi Ross, yes still out at Rosemill. Have it in bits just now but should be up and running in the next couple of weeks and sure we can get out for a blat around some of the back roads. Hopefully you will have a new toy and we can get in some decent runs :wink:

Just spotted this - yes got a new toy now - won't be as nimble as a Lotus or most definitely an X-bow!

Only had it a few days prior to going offshore so looking forward to getting to know it better when I'm back home again :lol: :thumbsup

Welcome back Cammy, I did have my name on the list for an xbow few years ago, but ended up in the Exige roadster! Look forward to seeing it out in the flesh!

Always wondered how they compared to a Lotus. Looking forward to hearing your reports. Welcome back. :thumbsup
