Sorry chaps, yet again I failed.  However, it was all the name of shite.  I spotted a top turd on Facebook marketplace yesterday afternoon.  Being in Cookstown, I missed the meet.  I hope you'll forgive when I rock up at the next one in this.

Hey, not a bother dude - other than The_Equalizer, we all failed!

I'd been working on the assumption that it'd be an all-evening thing like Wilsons and Ballyclare - it never occurred to me that it'd be all done and dusted in little over an hour. Poor fact-checking on my part, and apologies to all.

 

Still, from the sales list online and the last few lots witnessed by The_Equalizer, it seems that there wasn't a massive amount of what we might term shite on offer - certainly nowhere near the volume of assorted nails that sputter their last around Ballyclare's oil-stained sales ring, anyway...

 

Bah!

 

Still, I'd agree that the Lexus was well worth the trouble, by the look of it!

 

How far did £20 of fuel get you, out of interest...? :mrgreen:

Hey, fret not - hope you're on the road to recovery now! Home in bed was probably a safer option than standing confused by the roadside... there will be other opportunities, doubtless!

I've always ignored this thread, as there's no chance of me making it to a NI meet, but I clicked through for some reason and I'm glad I did, it has raised some giggles!

That MGBGT (she's a runner now) didn't look too bad at first, but those more recent pictures? Oh my word...

Hey, cheers man - naturally the local shiter meet-up threads are likely to hold less interest for those outside the area, but I suppose the auction summaries may provide some wry amusement across the board! Maybe in future I should post a link in the New News 24 thread following a successful auction foray, or summat...

 

Yes, the wee blue MGB was dreadful. Can't believe it was taxed until 2014, it looks like multiple decades' worth of bodge have been layered up... it was tricky to get pics showing just how bad it truly was - I s'pose this is why something looks ok on carandclassic.co.uk and turns out to be an utter shed in reality... who says the camera never lies?

You've also made me want to attend one locally!

Edit: I'm on a phone and struggling to link, but if you can be bothered to Google take a quick look at the next John Pye sale in Brighton That Sierra! That absolutely hanging Merc! The site's in Bevendean, too.

Ohhhh, that is the motherlode!

Never mind Ballyclare, this place makes CoPart look flash... definitely, forklift trucks and HIABs are the mark of a quality* establishment, there's no doubt!

Surely a few Sussex shiters could be enticed along to this fine establishment to witness the proceedings, or indeed MrsSMH? My own dearest wife enjoyed it all rather more than she'd expected...

Thank you for writing the post that I would have written if I was competent with a phone! I'll have a look at the calendar and maybe suggest something, but I can guarantee Mrs H won't be interested.

Okay so - looks like we might have some Joint NI Shiter Collectioneering this fair morn... three shiters, a Land Rover S3 and a trailer are potentially involved...

The target is indeed composed of steel and rust - but lacks wheels of any kind. Some on-site spannering will be required.

Updates as/when!

Well, apologies to all for lack of updates here... my important* role as the AutoShite (NI) Entertainment Director has been unforgivably distracted by bathroom work and other such guff.

 

First off, last month's collectioneering, mentioned above, was a success:

SHELVES

 

20181020_112739.jpg

 

Yup, some discarded industrial shelving (yer actual Dexian) was snatched from scrap to be put to good use in one of the many Datsuncog pre-loved, prefabricated outbuildings.

 

20181020_112807crop.jpg

 

This is where LWB Land Rovers really come into their own. Marvellous to see The_Equalizer's stunning beast in the metal! Thanks to all for making the magic happen.

 

 

And so... who's up for another crack at the auctioning? Maybe towards the end of the month, perchance?

 

I can appreciate that the days are short and the nights are long, but surely spending an evening staring in disbelief at knackered old nails in a shed is a worthwhile investment of anyone's time?

 

Is Carryduff worth another attempt, or might either of Wilson's weekly offerings provide more entertainment? Or is Carryduff really the non de trop when it comes to Ulster's AutoShite, being basically T-Met with catering?

 

Thoughts, insights and insults all gratefully received, chaps...

Definitely think that Carryduff is a waste of time unfortunately.  Ballyclare is certainly the provider of most laughs, as most of the tat is guaranteed NOT to get you home. Wilsons is a good middle road.... there was a battered Toyota Yaris Verso with a slush box there on Tuesday.

We'll be over home for xmas from the 20th to the 27th.  Family duties will of course be the way, however pints will probably be had at some point - traditionally, Laverys.  If any one fancies a pint?  And by a pint, I mean several.  Naturally.

I'll be home for 2 weeks ish over Christmas - probably 22/12 to 5/1. I'll probably also be home for the first week or so of December.

 

No idea what's on around then, but I may get a chance to catch up!
