Robert Allan:

yes I was there, but I think the car was Grania McKie's. She arranged for us to get special permission to go down onto the Causway. We had 2x cars at a time and the local press from Belfast took photos. It was one of several nice Northern Ireland trips that we did.

I still have it, although SORNed and a little scruffy looking.
We had some great trips in N.I. with the Imp club.
