I'm donating my giant NGK spark plug mobile.... The local car shop closed down and the guy gave it to me. I also have a Castrol oil pavement 0pen & closed sign.... Perhaps she,d like that too ! 

mobile as in a thing you use to keep babies entertained, or a giant fibreglass spark plug mounted to the chassis of a reliant robin? :mrgreen:

Hmm.  I wonder if the Innocenti would pass muster as a microcar.

The general definition of microcars as economy vehicles with either three or four wheels, powered by petrol engines of no more than 700cc or battery electric propulsion, and manufactured since 1945 was adopted, but this can be varied if justified by vehicle interest.

By that definition my 602cc 2CV passes as a microcar! 

Looks like an awesome place to visit! I’ll have to make the pilgrimage one day.

Today we had a group of visitors from the Auto"beige" forum and what an interesting & interested group of people they proved to be. As soon as they spotted the Milford Road Sweeper, it was clear we had something in common! Good fun thank you for coming to see us

Likewise, count me in for the June spanner session.  Hopefully it doesn't clash with anything.

OK chaps, I'll call Jean a bit later in the week to let her know.

Well the Innocenti meets that definition.  I wasn't sure whether it would be looked down upon for having too many seats / gears / cylinders.

Edit: I really must get my arse in gear and get it back on the road.

      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.

      Who's all going to this, then?
      It's this Sunday. 17-Coffees and I have both got our cars entered into the show.
      That's a 2001 VW Golf Cabriolet, and a 1995 BMW 316i!
      I may even be doing a bit of auto-testing in the 316, could be fun.
       
       
      EDIT: Mr Coffees has not entered as there are too many 2001 VW Golf Cabriolets in existence, apparently. Oh well.
