    An enjoyable show, but I found myself bored after about an hour. There isn't an awful lot to see, certainly when compared to Terenure/Mosney etc but the calibre of car here is obviously superior which I guess is a big attraction.

    Anyway, a few photos of what I found interesting;

    Not forgetting this gem. I'm sure a few regulars on here will like this;

    Some car park pics. I loved the old trade plate in the Daimler, and the red DeLorean looked great. I'll never tire of seeing that DB6!

    Car of the show for me was the yellow Kadette GTE. Like you say it could all be seen in a hour.


    Spent some time getting a quote from Carole Nash on my classics which was interesting. They quoted €865 for the same policy I pay AXA €420 for!

    My favourite was the Thema 8:32 was immaculate but yes I agree could do with more cars their was loads of empty space in the two halls especially down by Porsche Irl and the Series 1 Landies. Overall enjoyable though but was expensive enough at €18 ticket and €7 to park.

    Thought it was a good show, a bit short on volume but good quality. The 300SL Merc, and the 600 Pullman were cars of the show for me. Was disappointed there weren’t more Porsches. Few nice Lancias, Astons and Land Rovers though.

    That Thema was far from immaculate tbh. N/S headlamp fogged up, badges faded, lots of blemishes on bodywork. But then it is an 80’s Lancia I suppose! 😆

    Like Duke I also found myself board quickly this time around. I do remember it being better 3/4 years ago. Too many trade stands as well.

    I did however see some Italian cars that I never seen before. Lancia and Fiat's mainly.

    The second series one in Dukes picture was pissing petrol from the tank when I came upon it.

    Yeah, 18 notes plus the 7 for parking (plus petrol and tolls to get there and back) make it an expensive show. Some quality cars though. Don't think you'll find three Bora's in the same place too often. Highlights of the show for me were the Mercs and Lancias. There was a beautiful E500 and the 600 was awesome. Some beautiful Lancias - especially the Flaminia in silver.

    A red DeLorean? That's a first for me.

    Yellow Kadette is fantastic.

    The last time I was up in Norn Iron I got to chatting with a fella who parked his red DMC beside me. They're different from the norm, alright, but I still think I'd have to go silver if in the market for one!
