Biggar Vintage Rally - 12/08/18 - PICTURE DUMP!

Recommended Posts

Haven't been to this rally for a few years - family stuff gets in the way!

Usually a good event, we went in the Traveller when I had that.


Sunday is the public day, Saturday ( is/ was) competitors only.

We might go on Sunday, if things pan out.

Yes spotted it to. Just a girl sitting in the passenger seat. Did'nt wish to appear creepy and say "i know your boyfriend off the internet"  :shock: Popped back later by car empty 

Lot less cars than some years but still good. Got a good look at the buses and lorrys too. Great plate on a bus for someone on here too.

I didn't make the show as I spent the day in a sodden wet field in Perthshire.



Fucks sake. Wrong sodden wet field...


I slept in on the morning of the show and woke up 45mins late, then the car wouldn't start because the weather was wet and it took 10 mins to actually get it going. Then I put some air in the tyres as they were all in the 18-23psi range rather than the 30ish they should have been, which explained why the handling had been boat like. By this point I was very late so bombed down the motorway at 70-75mph in the pouring rain, the resulting water trail disguised the burning oil although about 3/4 of the way there both me an Girlfriend_70's started feel vaguely unwell from the smell...


The weather actually wasn't too bad, it spent a surprising amount of time not raining. I also managed to resist buying any junk from the stalls.


Anyway, here is a random selection of pictures from the show, starting with old shite:

Overall a good show, I think my girlfriend is now simply relieved that I don't collect lorries or busses although she is fine with stationary engines... We buggered off home at about half 2ish and took the scenic route back on the A roads. When we eventually rejoined the M8 it was no longer raining and the Doloshite left an impressive blue vapour trail on the overrun.

      Since this year is almost over, it's time to make plans for next year.
      A sizeable AS delegation attended the inaugural event in 2016. Expected to be some half arsed giffer show, to everyone's surprise it turned out to be a superb spectacle with lots of noise, fumes and yes, speed. A return visit to the 2017 event proved to be not less satisfying. For this year, the event was not held in the town of Bromyard, it was integrated with the Shelsley Walsh hill climb, so we skipped it. But next year it'll return to Bromyard and thus we all should go again.
      Attending are:

      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


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


      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!

      I have spoken to Lesley Cook who looks after the Hammond Microcar collection in Kent (TN12 postcode - between Headcorn and Staplehurst). The original owners founded the RUMcar register/forum.

      I have confirmed that up to 20 cars from us (quirkier the better she says!) will turn up on 12th May 1pm for a tour. The 20 car limit is due to only so much hard standing.

      Apparently there is a pub down the road for drink/food afterwards.

      This is a private collection, so we can only attend at this time and date unless you make your own separate arrangements.

      The charge is £3 a head, which I think is very fair. I will happily play banker (yes, banker) on the day.

      The limit is 20 cars, but up to 30-40 people. So please put your username below (and any other forum members who will be in the car with you).
