    Funny, I made the very same comment to my companion today while looking at the 128 3p, the owner approached us just after I had mentioned it.

    By the way I'm happy to take any criticism on my photos from today. Its a work in progress.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,737 ✭✭✭ Arthur Daley


    Plenty of original Irish cars there. Like the clean, brown Opel Record. Plus the late 131 that swam across.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,156 ✭✭✭ w124man


    Great pics and great to see so many Irish cars there - with the correct plates and fonts !!!!

    A lot of people tend to get a bit riled up over "seas of ZVs" but I tend not to let the plate on a car bother me too much. That said, an original Irish reg does make for more interesting viewing.

    Well put. If a classic is nice enough it will 'outshine' its reg plate!

    Great pics btw Duke, keep 'em coming if you have more. I havent attanded the NBCI show to date, maybe next year!:)

    Thanks, sadly I didn't take any more. There was a genuine Ferrari Dino there that I had forgotten to get a photo of :o

    This was my first NCBI show - certainly not my last. It was great, and nicely laid out. Lacking food though, or stalls unless I missed them

    Really nice little show that. Some serious metal there, too.

    A tab obvious, but this was my highlight.

    Even got a slot for myself!

    What has it got to do with des Cullen ?


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,286 ✭✭✭ goochy


    Sorry only realised now des cullen died in January


  • Registered Users Posts: 914 okistag


    Des Cullen has been a keen supporter in many ways of our show from the first year, now 21 years ago.
    After all his kind support, it was only fitting to make the show a memorial one to him.

    Did not know that Des passed away RIP


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,286 ✭✭✭ goochy


    Yes it was very low profile. Normally you hear about people like him passing away in press.

    Looks like a great turnout, how many cars were there on the day?
    Will this event stay on the same weekend pre Terenure next year?

    We have been the week before Terenure for a number of years now, so I think it will more than likely stay that way for now, as most weekends are already full.

    Again we really appreciate the support, so thank you to all.
