I can't believe you've never had a parmo, that's impressive.


Worth trying once, I like the ones from Fellini's on Linthorpe Road, but that's just me 

You meen can't believe I've never heard of one.

I'm game to try anything but the above doesn't actually look that good to be honest, the more I look at it I see cheese on toast.

*grandad noises*  I was poked?  Checked the dates and it's going to be really unlikely I can get to any of them because of work schedule, which sucks.  Also, Parmos are horrible, anyone else that wants it can have my allocated one.  Same goes for sqwurrs.

I set the poll to close on Sunday morning, so as to catch those weekend only members.


But it's looking a lot like the last Sunday in July, probably either coast north of the Tyne or on the A68 near Toft Hill.  Sound reet to the SCTCH?

Bishop Auckland sounds okay to me if it's a goer.  My shite game is weak at the mo so I'll most likely be in a modern Corsa as well for everyone to laugh at! 😁

      It's not exactly Autoshite, but an event celebrating cars and popular culture from the 80s and 90s should come close enough! Radwood has been a thing in the states for a year or two now, I've been following it since pretty much the beginning and am quite excited that the first event outside the US is happening here. The premise is pretty simple, bring along your car built from 1980-1999, optionally you can show up in your period correct rad outfit (whatever that might mean to you). Ticket prices are quite affordable, 20 quid if you want to show up in your car (incl. a passenger) or 10 quid without the car.
      I'm currently trying to find out if anyone would like to join. I have the feeling that space for cars might be quite limited, with the show happening in about 4 weeks I'd rather book the tickets earlier than later.  You can find more info in the link below, if you are interest it would be good to see people post here.
      To give you a little idea what previous events looked like:

      So for the first time in over 18 months because of reasons I made it to one of the Wednesday evening gatherings at Earls Barton. Lots of cars there but I do think they need to either rename this event and remove 'classic' or be more selective about what they let in as it was only about 50% classics and the rest were moderns. Loads of Binis, modern Beemers and Audis, Japanese performance motors, slammed VWs and the latest supercars, so I walked straight past a lot of dross to find the occasional gem. In front of the Maxi was a brand new 19-reg Mazda 3 - what the heck was that doing at a show?
      Anyway, pics of some of the good stuff...

      New venue just announced for FOTU 2019 - Saturday 20 July, 10am to 4pm at Claydon House, MK18 2EX (same general area as Stowe). Would make a nice 6-mile jaunt through the north Bucks countryside from the Field of Dreams. Concours applications open in January and general spectator/classic tickets will be available in March. Entry criteria has been widended too and it now says it's open to "unexceptional classics from 1966 to 1996".

      Hi all,
      Bit of a random one but do any Manchester/Derbyshire/South or West Yorkshire based Shiters fancy a meetup sometime in Glossop?
      I know it's not exactly a sprawling metropolis but it has a reasonably priced car park, a Wetherspoons, a caff, etc.
      Main reason for suggesting it is it's a nice drive in from most directions - over Holme Moss from the North or Snake Pass from Sheffield direction.
      The A624 from the south isn't too bad either.
      Something like a Thursday evening would be best for me but open to suggestions.
