IS there any club in this country for those interested in military vehicles?
I found the IMVG but there website appears to be in-active.
You'd want to talk to PanhardPL, he'll tell you all about it
This is my babe
lovely bike run to the hills,
The Military Vehicle Club of Ireland can be contacted at
email@example.com. Robin Payne is the Club Secretary.
Salute Show run by the IMVG up in National Show Centre Swords next weekend. MVCI show in the Curragh was a couple of months ago, quite a lively military vehicle and re-enactment scene here and up north now. Plenty of shows, some of the bigger vintage rallies have military sections as well.
Myself and a couple of others attend anything going to get out of the house, away from the wife etc no matter who runs it Off to Knisale the week after Salute and Kilbeggan in three weeks time.
What have you got and where are you?
Nearly broke my leg trying to kick start one of those when I was a young fella.
500cc single. It backfired, kicked back through kick start and nearly sent me over the hedge
I knew a guy 20 years ago, in Sutton, Dublin, who had 3 or 4 road worthy examples and enough bits to make about 3 more.
Im in Cork and I aint got nothing! Im just interested in them.
I love Unimogs, Foward control Landrovers, UAZs, Zil 6x6s that kinda thing.
Used them as a workhorse from 1982 right up until the mid 90ies. They are now retired and stuck in a corner because of a bad back and going jap.
Robin Payne was selling a Mog a while back. Worth keeping an eye on www.milweb.net for what's available and at what cost
If you are at a show, talk to some of the owners. Just searched and realised that the Kiinsale show is same weekend as Salute ?
