Wednesday 20 March 2019 SUPER SPECIAL INTERACTIVE EDITION

Wednesday 29 May 2019 DAMP SQUIB M9

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

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 exciting. I'll be in my CLK with obligatory Merc rust circa 1998-2003 - it's the only thing with a MoT. I'll have to find someway of finding you two without looking like some oddball quizzing everyone there!

Blind date rosette!!

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, Shiters of Ulster?

Right... Another date for the diary... August the 11th, 5pm, Ballymena showgrounds - raceway for a classic and retro car show... who's going??

 

Might, just might be able to sneak out for this one. I'll know nearer the time.

^^^ 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...

      It's not exactly Autoshite, but an event celebrating cars and popular culture from the 80s and 90s should come close enough! Radwood has been a thing in the states for a year or two now, I've been following it since pretty much the beginning and am quite excited that the first event outside the US is happening here. The premise is pretty simple, bring along your car built from 1980-1999, optionally you can show up in your period correct rad outfit (whatever that might mean to you). Ticket prices are quite affordable, 20 quid if you want to show up in your car (incl. a passenger) or 10 quid without the car.
      I'm currently trying to find out if anyone would like to join. I have the feeling that space for cars might be quite limited, with the show happening in about 4 weeks I'd rather book the tickets earlier than later.  You can find more info in the link below, if you are interest it would be good to see people post here.

      To give you a little idea what previous events looked like:

      So for the first time in over 18 months because of reasons I made it to one of the Wednesday evening gatherings at Earls Barton. Lots of cars there but I do think they need to either rename this event and remove 'classic' or be more selective about what they let in as it was only about 50% classics and the rest were moderns. Loads of Binis, modern Beemers and Audis, Japanese performance motors, slammed VWs and the latest supercars, so I walked straight past a lot of dross to find the occasional gem. In front of the Maxi was a brand new 19-reg Mazda 3 - what the heck was that doing at a show?
      Anyway, pics of some of the good stuff...

      New venue just announced for FOTU 2019 - Saturday 20 July, 10am to 4pm at Claydon House, MK18 2EX (same general area as Stowe). Would make a nice 6-mile jaunt through the north Bucks countryside from the Field of Dreams. Concours applications open in January and general spectator/classic tickets will be available in March. Entry criteria has been widended too and it now says it's open to "unexceptional classics from 1966 to 1996".
