Chodmodestly 2019!!! September 1st Chumley Castle, Cheshire

Recommended Posts

Car of the day for me was the Renault 15, in perfect unrestored condition.  53k on the clock and it had been in storage for over a decade or something.

Having seen an L-reg one at Bromley in June, I didn't expect to see another for ages.

My latest obsession is awful yanks.

This Eldorado was part of the South Cheshire American Car Group, the name having smacks of Judean People's Front about it. North, East and West weren't in attendance.

I knew this would be a good show when I saw this Eldorado on my way in.  Just look at this beautifully luxurious* blue interior including the mandatory giffer steering wheel cover. The floor mats I've only noticed now are a nice touch, too... And this radio... I need to stop looking at this photo...😦

Yup was a good Pre-Birthday day out.

Sadly I'm a socially awkward mong & forget peoples names / faces and usernames etc, so didn't get to annoy you all.

Thanks to all involved who made the day happen.

Hopefully next year I'll be in something 'shiter', than the Gaffa Tape wagon.

I really like the front end styling on these.

Brilliant day out as always chaps, sorry we ducked out a bit early and I didn't manage to say hello to many folk. It was Finace_RML's first time so we went wandering too. The announcer was as crap as ever but gatecrashing the 90s section at least got us a plaque and a disparaging look from one of the judges. 

Same time next year?

Junior Sporty made me fo into the ri g with the convertibles and sports car.  The MX5 was acknowledged,  but I could taste the resentment in his voice. 

Same time next year.

I was very tempted to take the Explorer into the ring with the Americans but it would likely be a step too far...

You definitely should have, I didn't know I could have taken the 405 in until sometime mentioned the 90's section or I would have done.

Today I’m off to the North Wales version of Chumley, the same organisers at a place called Bodrhyddan Hall. Was supposed to be in the MX5 but that’s not playing ball so will be 2CV-ing it. 

Wonder if Les the commentator will be there?

      It didn't happen last year because I wasn't fit enough.  This year, and on the wave of having done Inverness for Christmas, I'm feeling up to a south-coast trip again.  This of course means there will be the usual Shiters' lunch meet at the burger van on Portsdown Hill, most likely on Wednesday May 13th.  I'll be in the wheelchair bus, sorry; MrsR has vetoed taking Hairy Pussy even before I've got it home.
      We will also be stopping each way at a Travelodge or Premier Inn somewhere in the Midlands, so there might be an opportunity for a Midlands Massiv Meet too.  Or even two of them!  It worked well enough at Cumbernauld!

      Yo! I've been nominated (many times) to organise a shitefest next year, considering i can't even organise my own life then this could be a challenge but I'm happy to try and arrange something if there enough interest?.
      I've made enquiries at the Rose pub where we hold our East Coast Retro car meets on in Shotley near Ipswich, Suffolk (IP9 1NL) and she's more than happy for us to use the field over weekend for £5 per person per night if sleeping over, there are toilet facilities and the pub does good grub plus they have a large room for us to have a meal or maybe a quiz on the Saturday night?.
      I've also spoken to a friend who's a volunteer at the Ipswich Transport Museum and even though the museum is closed to the public on a Saturday he can't see no reason why we can't have the museum to ourselves for a private tour around and even the possibility of a bus ride on one of their historic buses which I'm sure a few on here would really enjoy.
      Now it's obviously early days yet but what i need to know roughly is how many of you shitters be interested in this and i need to give the pub a date as their field is getting booked up so that we can secure for our chosen weekend.

      Anyone else going? UKSaabs is having a show there again this year, so do stop by and say hello.
      One of the advantages of having a stand is you get a code so your club members can get a discount on admission prices on the Saturday and Sunday. Not a huge amount of saving but anything is welcome. They insist that only members can get the discount code, but as you lot are all* members of UKSaabs if you want the code, drop me a PM and it will come back by return.

      Thought we'd try and get a Sunday afternoon meet in before the clocks go back.

      Usual Cafe on the A249 northbound. I think it has changed it's name again when I went past this week, so no website link for now (was Mickey's Rock Café and then Bangers Diner).

      Note your interest here.
