The ZX of much pinkness and lacquer peel made it to the Super Sausage on the A5, as the VP1500 had a flat battery :-(


Six-cylinder and I were going to stay for breakfast, but the queue for food was up to the door, so we headed home.


The Cadillac got a decent run out though and we saw some nice motorbikes, so it was a nice Sunday morning jaunt, even if it didn't work out quite as intended. I didn't realise there were two Super Sausage cafes!


Don't lose heart, LostnotFound - it was great of you to organise this as an event in the first place. A Breakfast Club is a brilliant idea, so thanks for arranging it. The Ace cafe edition should be easier.

Well that does look a tad nicer than the one I went to! Although mine was certainly 'interesting'. 




I was not only the only customer with less than 4 wheels, it was the only one with less than 10!




But there was no queue so at least I got breakfast.




So as all middle managers would say, l'll chalk this down to a learning experience. Not only is actually turning up to the correct place a good start, from the sounds of the queues trying to avoid other events which had been warned about earlier was also something else that I'd been wrong about.


Being the sad bastard I am, missing the ZX makes me sadder than the Cadillac. My wife had one as her first car which leaves me with a fondness for them, even if it's a proper rose tinted view as in reality as I never got on with the driving position myself.

My ZX is rose-tinted, all right, as Beko hasn't polished it since last summer! :-)


Your breakfast looked good. Many years ago I was overseeing work on a building site and the canteen there would cook you anything you liked, as long as it could be sandwiched between two doorsteps of bread and fitted inside a brown paper bag. A full cooked breakfast was just possible, even though the tinned tomatoes would inevitably have soaked their way through the bag before I got back to my Portakabin...

Only just back from a pickup from Southampton otherwise I was going to come to this (A5 one).

I assume LostnotFound was at the Super Sausage in Northampton, if so he definitely got a better breakfast !

I find the A5 one , in common with The Ace, gets away with not trying very hard with the food as people will go anyway.


I was going to say the one with the Chevelle on the roof, but it's gone and was a Buick anyway!

I was at the next cafe along the A5 (Jacks Hill at Towcester) for their truck show this morning, but did pop into the Super Sausage on my way home at lunchtime and ended up in this impromptu line up of classics, which was nice.

      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.
      Attending are:

      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!

      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).
