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.

And linky back to last years thread:
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
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!
As per the title really...
Who from the beige is off to the Citroen Centenary this weekend?
Myself, the good lady and of course Daisy-Vera shall be in attendance Friday/Saturday/Sunday.
See you there???
All Citroen owners welcome, club members or not!
