  1. Was a good today, first time meeting fellow shiters. Will need to get to another meet.
  2. Apologies. I’d forgotten. I’ll stick with the original plan and take your ticket 🙂
  3. Where are people meeting for brekkie? I’m not far away from the event so can be there at any time.
  4. Would it be possible to meet you before the event and give you the money for it?
  5. I still need to get a ticket off someone if there is one going spare
  6. Well I’m up and awake. Will probably not be there for all of the day as need to get back and get a kip before my shift tonight.
  7. My cars not washed and not hoovered lol. Will be hiding it away so it’s not an embarrassment lol
  8. I’ll clear out the boot of the fabia and we can use it. It has plenty of space with it being an estate.
  9. Jeez. I’ll need to set an alarm clock haha! Pretty much slept for the last 12 hours, only got up at 9 to wander off to the pub haha
  10. I’ve only just noticed this post. I’ll be there. I’ve just started working nights again so my body clock is all over the joint. Unless I pick up a car tomorrow which is the plan I’ll be attending in the fabia of much rust. I only stay about 40 mins away from the event. What time are you all planning to get there?

    Car features

    City steering on the relaunched panda. Never seen the point on having it even though the steering was light enough already. Does rust count as an option? Seems to come as standard on most cars I buy 😂.
  12. Think someone has seen one of these on the recent series on top gear and thought because it has been on national tv it will be worth more. It’s probably not even worth 3k let alone 30k.
  13. Ace. Well it looks like we have our venue sorted.
  14. Anybody else been harassed by there employer while on annual leave? Started a new job a month back, finally on a permanent contract pending successful completion of probation with a decent pay rise but I honestly think I’d be happier picking in a warehouse on an ongoing temp contract with min wage. Been working on phones in call centres for nearly 7 years now and need to get out of this cycle I am in.

    my spots.....

    Clean Austin Mini and a lancia of some description.
  16. Land sail are currently on the Skoda on one corner and don’t know what’s on the rest. That’s what happens when you buy a wheel and tire for £20 from the nice local scrapyard.
  17. Hopefully if we can get a meet at maybe a pub for a bit of a grub and a natter we might be able to do something of an evening during the week. I know the fabia won’t be there it’s terminal at the minute.
  18. Where ever is easiest for the majority. Hopefully this thread picks up and we can get something arranged.
  19. Shiters of the North West I have noticed we don’t have a meet or anything like it arranged. Would anyone be up for this providing we can get numbers? It is open to anyone who can make it. If we can sort out something for location and date wise - before the end of September? If there is enough demand hopefully it can turn into a monthly meet up.
  20. Flintshire to pontefract and back. Probably need an overnight stop for that...😮
  21. Walked away from a couple. The one that springs to mind was an ‘03 or an ‘04 Skoda fabia Sdi estate. Was working a nightshift and went over to view it before I started work. It was a clean car and looked fair decent for the price but I wasn’t amused by the fact it was filled with seats from another car the seller hadn’t bothered to take out.
  22. To be honest I don’t think you are far wrong. It’s a shame. If there wasn’t as many rust issues with them there would a ton load more on the road.
  23. I’ve had two. Brilliant little cars. The prices some people are asking for them is ridiculous. Find a good rust free one and you’ll have an appreciating classic on your hands.
