Car Show Detox – Atherstone 19-09-10

While the Scene Queens were hitting Players 4.0, I was keeping it distinctly more “village fate” at a local classic show.  I’m still on the detox from another hardcore summer at the shows and this classic gathering was a refreshing change.   OK, there are a lot of stockers, but these cars are built by passionate owners the way they want them, rather than to score internet points and I’m down with that.  Anyway, pics:

Retro & Dub Mania 06-06-10

I’m coming to you live via the medium of pay as you go mobile broadband  (I should be fully online in another week or so), so I’ll keep it brief for now to minimise the upset when I loose signal…

Another sunny weekend and another car show (I love summer!): this time it was Retro Mania at Weston Park.  The Retro side of things is a bit of an add-on to the main event Dub Mania, so there was plenty of cool trainers, BBS wheels and sump scraping to keep you entertained all day.  The usual camping went down on the Saturday with the usual suspects and the usual results – lots of beer, meat burning and an ambulance visit – good times!

The show was pretty laid back and, although a little down on numbers Vs. the dubs, the Retro crowd held there own with some pretty classy motors.  Anyway before crash out t tt tt t t here’ssss s  s sommeee piccsssssss….[offline].

Ultimate Dubs 14-03-10 Part #1

For me, UD pretty much kicks of the shows for 2010 and in quite some style.  Indoor shows are always nice at this time of year when the weather is as reliable as, um, an old Volkswagen and it’s certainly a gentle ease-in to the show scene after a winter of hibernation.  The organisers run a strict door policy: only the sickest and most high-end cars get in, so you are always sure to see some awesome motors and some fresh metal; usually with the paint still wet from a race to meet the deadline for this weekend!

I’ll kick off with pretty much my car of the show: G-Werks fresh, 9-day built MK4 R32:

Bently paint x Lambo wheels x Porsche brakes x Air ride

Ok, I’m not on commission so we’ll move on…

MK1 Perfection. TDi power.

I was so into this Beetle, especially the Porsche seats (in MK5 GTi trim) and cage; it just worked so well!

Stay tuned for more pics soon…
