***************************************************

Righto, shite fans of Norn Iron,

A suggestion has been put forth that a mini-meet of sorts could be arranged for those of us perched atop this enchanted rock, to strengthen bonds and ogle at terrible, terrible cars about to be inflicted on some other poor bugger.

Venue is: Ballyclare Car Auctions, Dennison Industrial Estate, Ballyclare BT39 9EB

http://ballyclarecarauction.co.uk/

Date is: Wednesday 8th August 2018, from 7pm onward

http://autoshite.com/calendar/event/52-northern-ireland-mini-meet-ballyclare-auctions/

Deep-fried items of varying degrees of danger are, apparently, available onsite for those who wish to test the strength of their stomach and other major organs.

So pop along, in whatever vehicle you fancy, for a bit of craic and to participate in the ever-popular Crispiest Wheelarch Spotting Competition.

I'll be there, I believe The_Equalizer will be there, and a few other expressions of interest have been indicated from local shiters.

I may even be wearing my newly-arrived Autoshite t-shirt (courtesy of FilthyJohn) to aid recognition.

Drop a line below if you reckon you fancy coming along!

Dat.

Me! Me! Me! I'll be there... and I know you already... so I should be able to recognise you! Title is immense by the way!

 

Whoo-hoo! That's one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready so go, cat, go...

 

Looks like we got ourselves a meet-up... and I'll have your box of die-cast delights with me, unless a handover can be arranged before then.

 

 

So the next question is - whatcha reckon you're gonna be driving? :mrgreen:

How far is Ballyclare from the aerodrome at Aldergrove?  Asking for a friend... 

Very very close... literally just down the road (A57).

Google sez a mere 11 miles door to door.

Your 'friend' malarkey ain't fooling anyone... :P

If weather is good, I'll bring the samba... otherwise it'll be a shite skoda of some description.

THIS IS NOT A DRILL, PEOPLE!!!

THERE IS A BEIGE WARTBURG KNIGHT IN THE MONKSTOWN AREA!!!

REPEAT - NOT A DRILL!

Looks like a fairly recent arrival and all...

Apologies for fairly rubbish dashcam footage, but I was NOT expecting to encounter this while sauntering over to Abbeycentre to look for a yardbrush.

Somewhere in the local vicinity is a person with a beige Wartburg. Let that sink in for a moment.

If they're not on here- they really ought to be.

Any ideas,  fair Shiters of Ulster?

^^^ If he did, he's kept pretty quiet about it.

Unless he's planning on bursting out of the boot of a fucked Mazda 6 while it's going through the ring, wearing nothing but an Autoshite banner and a big smile...

In which case, who am I to judge?

Probably the most exciting thing to ever happen in Ballyclare...

      Hi all,
       
      Bit of a random one but do any Manchester/Derbyshire/South or West Yorkshire based Shiters fancy a meetup sometime in Glossop?
       
      I know it's not exactly a sprawling metropolis but it has a reasonably priced car park, a Wetherspoons, a caff, etc.
       
      Main reason for suggesting it is it's a nice drive in from most directions - over Holme Moss from the North or Snake Pass from Sheffield direction.
       
      The A624 from the south isn't too bad either.
       
      Something like a Thursday evening would be best for me but open to suggestions.

      Discussions were had today between myself and @320touring and it was decided we have a goodly number of somewhat fast and comparable cars within the core Scotoshite between his Clio 182, @dome's Kangoo 182, @jaypee's BMW 316i (Honest gov), @Supernaut's 323i and my V70 T6 and we should finally do a race. We have decided on reviving Club GLF (GANNIN LIKE FARK) and we shall be meeting at Crail Raceway for some drag racing.
      This is also an open invitation to all yous who fancy coming and joining us for the day even if it's just for the bantz, plus you'll be just up the road from Anstruther - home of the chippie that's never done winning best chip shop in the UK awards. Deetz below:
      Crail Raceway
      Drag and Drift Thrash
      15th May 2022 (Sunday)
      10am - 4pm
      £10 entry to the track
      £20 to race (No Need to race)
      Helmet required if you reckon you'll crack 100mph on the 1/4 mile. No rentals available even before covid.
      Basic scrutineering will be in force - Battery must be secure, all wheel bolts / nuts present and visible, nothing significant floating about in the car that could become a missile in a crash, no significant fluid leaks... etc etc. Be sensible folks. Don't bring a unMoTable wreck.

      Not sure which page to put this on...
      My stepmum runs a dementia charity, Dementia Support South Lincs. 
      To raise money there's an annual car rally, it's a pleasant canter around South Lincs lanes followed by tea & cake. £30/car. 
      Fun, very informal and no beardy concours inspectors. All shite welcomed. You'll get to meet me and my Puma, and possibly @Cluffy's Corrado if he ever fixes it. 
      Kick-off is 1pm in a tiny village called Aslackby about 15mins north of Bourne. 
      If you just want to come and eyeball the cars it's £7.50 for the tea & cake and they'll be back at base for 4pm. 
      Let's paint the village beige!
      I will send the charmingly old-person Word Document application form to anyone who wants it via email.

      Quick poll to see who is available when.
       
      Happy to update the polls with any suggestions!

      It didn't happen last year because I wasn't fit enough.  This year, and on the wave of having done Inverness for Christmas, I'm feeling up to a south-coast trip again.  This of course means there will be the usual Shiters' lunch meet at the burger van on Portsdown Hill, most likely on Wednesday May 13th.  I'll be in the wheelchair bus, sorry; MrsR has vetoed taking Hairy Pussy even before I've got it home.
      We will also be stopping each way at a Travelodge or Premier Inn somewhere in the Midlands, so there might be an opportunity for a Midlands Massiv Meet too.  Or even two of them!  It worked well enough at Cumbernauld!
