Shitefest 7th -9th June 2019

Recommended Posts

I think a double mattress would fit in the back of the Saab...

I've had a double airbed blown up nicely in the laguna latch and zx hatch before at shitefests. It works well because it blows up into the contours of the interior and wedges itself in.

 

However then you fumble around for your phone at twat o'clock in the morning and pop the stopper out and loose half the air before you can refit it. And then can't blow the thing back up as you'll wake half the forum!

I've blown up a double size air bed in the boot using the 12v socket in the rear. We were visiting family and didn't realise that the only pump we'd packed was a car one until we got there.

 

We didn't look like twats in the car park at all...

Got the ok from the boss to pop over for this,either with cheap flights or possible delivery either way....who knows

 

Sounds like a Cannock mission to get you a car to drive home, but obviously you won't find out what till you get to shitefest!

I've an event that runs every few weeks that I try to get to in London, and so long as it doesn't clash (2019 calendar hasn't been published yet) I'm not aware of anything that clashes with the proposed dates.

 

Roughly 150 miles from here so eminently doable.

 

So...Activa, camper or Invacar...

Sadly he's off the road for at least a year given the fallout from his stroke.

 

Realistically likely to be between the van of (assuming I get it roadworthy) the Invacar. Van most likely if I'm going to be staying somewhere given how stressful I tend to find staying away unless it's somewhere I know.

 

I don't do tents...played that game in my youth and decided it wasn't for me!

Tent? Pah. I'm about 6" and I sleep comfortably on back seats, give me a camping mat, a pillow and some blankets/a sleeping bag, and I'm grand.

 

My only quandary will be Civic/416. Now I have an ideal two car do-it-all garage I don't see myself changing cars any time soon - and I'm not sure which I'd take, as neither has an upside. 
Probably the Civic as the space inside is a bit more flexible having folding seats.

We had a 5* hotel last year upon our arrival in sunny Scotland! Was grand

      The annual Chumley meet up is but a mere 2 1/2 months away... 
      Last years line up... 

      Chumley always brings highlights like the year we pushed Huggy into the ring! 

      And happy shiters from the many corners of the UK congregating for fun and chod related chatting! 

      Anywho, reminiscing over... 
      The facts are as follows: 
      The festival of 1000 classic cars at Chlomondoley castle in Cheshire Sunday September 1st. 
      The Autoshambles club will once again be represented. Tickets bought as part of the ‘club’ display are £4.50. I am happy to sort out tickets again this year. 
      Linky to the website: http://www.classicshows.org/festival-1000-classic-cars-sun-1-september-2019/
      And linky back to last years thread: 
       
       
      So... 
      Who’s in?

      So to the second of the weekend's shows. Stony Stratford is only 5 miles from Yardley Gobion so a lot of the same cars turned up but there was still plenty else to see, if not quite as manically busy as the New Year's Day event in the same place. Zel has already covered this event in his thread so I'll try to avoid duplicating his photos.

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

      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.
