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.

      I've not been before but apparently it's a bigun.
      If I go I'm happy to look out for unobtainium frogchod bits.

      Any shiters going to the Beaulieu International Autojumble this year? Always an interesting day out even if its mainly overpriced Austin 7 parts. 
       I have generally found that although pickings are slim for 70's/80's/90's shite, that if you do find it it is normally a bargain as it's just shite to the seller and "not for a real classic".  The paddock is always a laugh to see how much someone rekkons they can get for a well polished MG Midget made entirely of Bog, and the Bonhams tent is just funny to see how the upper 3% live.  What are other peoples experiences? 
      I'll be going on the Sunday from Oxford, would be good to meet up with other shiters at the Ale tent

      Its been a while since we last had a meetup of southern shiters, and I wondered if anyone was interested in a late summer gathering?
      A little while back I was over at Littlehampton, on the way I spotted a potential meetup point:
      https://www.brewhouseproject.co.uk/
      Its a barn on the Worthing side of Arundel which is a coffee roast house and brewery, and do food too. Just off the A27, by that weird junction where it seems like two different sets of civil engineers approached the same spot from opposite directions, with wildly different ideas about what the road layout was going to be like and made a rather hasty compromise?
      There appears to be a decent sized car park too?
      Maybe one saturday or sunday in September, but not the 28th and 29th? Any takers?
