Well, we made it all the way up North to meet up with a group of Barchetta owners before heading off into the hills of Scotland. Pictures can be seen in my photo gallery.

The B is back in the garage for a well earned rest.

For all her hard work, she is going to get a cambelt,water pump and power steering belt change next month.
