Recommended Posts

See you there! (Hopefully)

Quite a few familiar names and/or cars if you scroll down the list. In-fact I suspect a large proportion of the cars on show are from Autoshite.

Also many MGBs listed... I suppose they need to make the classic car numbers up somehow!

There are also 69 classic car spaces left available if anyone else is thinking about it.

Is it still OK to bring kids to the Field Of Dreams? (9,12+14) I've slightly bolloxed my chances of babysitting.

Kids, Dogs, grass snakes anything you like!

That’s a relief as we may well have an 11 year old in tow! Nice to know there might be other kids there if he does end up coming with.

Has everyone had the email inviting you to enter the concours? Suggests numbers might not be as high as previous years if they're still searching for entries at this stage 

Yes, I got that.  Won't be doing it though as I prefer to just park up and wander off at events.  I assume there's an expectation you stay with your car for most of the day and have to talk to people.  I'd rather not do that....also the 11 isn't mintola.

Yes I did

I told them it was a ten-yard car.

Excellent.  Although 20th July is 9 days after the Y10's current MOT expires, so I might have to come down in something else depending on how that goes.

No - you're bringing this - I'm panicking to get the XJR6 done in time - and we're swapping motors for a pootle about.

 

Also - I'll probably (almost definitely) have munchkin with me too……… 9 in June - so he'll be well happy with this as a weekends camping.

Not the case at all, we did the same last year as some brilliant cars book into the classic car parking area but wouldn't be out of place in the Concours area.

Forgot to post here, but TPA is officially booked in as of a day or two ago...so that should be fun.

...Even if it is an order of magnitude further away than any journey attempted yet!

 

any plans for a quick MOT?, should be a good test run for seeing how she handles a fast dash across town :)

(no im totally not saying this just because I want to see another Model 70 get a fresh MOT :mrgreen: )

I entered the concours, got an email stating this:

Congratulations!
You have successfully booked for:
Festival of the Unexceptional 2019 - Concours Registration

but the actual downloadable ticket states "Classic Car Forward Parking". I'm guessing they have not yet decided whether my car is unexceptional enough...

The Concours cars will be selected in early June and then everyone will be notified if they have been selected or not.

Thanks, I figured that would be the case so wasn't a negative comment. Will wait and see!

      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.

      Wednesday 20 March 2019 SUPER SPECIAL INTERACTIVE EDITION

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

      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.

      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).
