A little cruise to the new cafe

Busy times in Glottis’ Buggy Garage

There has been a lot of activity in the garage lately with the Baja that is being built, sorting out the valve train issues on the Manx and general spannering with Agent Orange. That hasn’t stopped us from going out on a few cruises now that the weather is looking better and a friend has…

Buggy ready for MOT

Results at Last..
