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.

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!

Myself and the Beko-ettes will be at the FOD from about 3.30/4 so I can get the kettle on if it helps? I can't drag them round all day as they wont like it, but it's also my weekend to have them so I can't not.

Will be fun! If you need the Gazebo up Chris leave it in a big pile before you leave and I'll arrive a bit earlier and get it up. Got a chod owning friend who lives in Adwell who is interested in the after party too if that's allowed? I've linked him to this thread so he can say hello if he fancies it.

Where is the nearest hotel to the FoD?

Sleep in the field! I might be, Amy reminded me Eva wanted to do a camping trip, no idea who else is staying though

However for a more sensible answer, Buckingham and Milton Keynes are 15ish minutes away on fairly fast A roads

      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.
