    I'll jump in on the limelight MrCostington if you don't mind and post a few of my own too

    Twas a decent enough show. Not the best they've had but an enjoyable day

    Absolutely cracking example of a Starlet here and a sound owner too:

    This was/is on Donedeal for €6500...not the prettiest example up close

    46833511614_d49ba6038c_c.jpg

    This was/is on Donedeal too, for €3500, and looked to be worth every penny of it

    What's the blue coupe in the corner, in the 3rd photo in MrCostigan's 2nd batch (the one after the Mercedes W114/115)? It's pretty damn nice.

    It's a Ford Maverick, was absolutely class.

    Good show, arrived around 1130 and left at around 2, had to ensure we were there in time to bring the kids to Pat Fallon too!

    The usual suspects were there, from the ridiculously out of place k11 micra to the dreamers in the for sale section (including usual dreamer Mr Golding)

    Cars of the show for me were:

    The Rolls
    The blue WRX (really given me a want for one of these or an EVO)
    And due to my personal grá for them, the 400ci firebird at the back.


    Oh and my e60 in the carpark of course!

    Is that the grey 87 Rolls that was out on the field? Lovely old thing, not mint - but well used!


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,907 ✭✭✭✭ ELM327


    Yes,thats the one. I had a similar one but an '82 in blue before. Best drive of any car I've ever driven.

    I prefer "not mint" anyway, cars (including old rollers) are made to be used. Once you maintain them there's no reason to trailer an 80's car anywhere.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,062 ✭✭✭✭ Duke O Smiley


    Yeah I saw that one come in but when I went out later to grab a photo it had gone.

    Looked to be an original Irish car too going off the reg number and the older type font on the plate


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,039 ✭✭✭ MrCostington


    Looks like I missed a good few cars by getting there at 2, pity they don't stay a bit longer.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,062 ✭✭✭✭ Duke O Smiley


    Also as an aside, I came back to my car on two different occasions to find someone leaning on the same front wing


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,039 ✭✭✭ MrCostington


    Were you showing it, or in the carpark?

    I saw a big guy bend down to look underneath a car, getting up he uses the door handle to pull himself up! He also tried to open the doors. I can see why some would be put off showing their cars.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,062 ✭✭✭✭ Duke O Smiley


    The silver 97 Corolla inside (I know, I know! It was well received though, got plenty of nice comments)


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,039 ✭✭✭ MrCostington


    I'll look out for you next time!


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,062 ✭✭✭✭ Duke O Smiley


    Keep an eye out for my Alto at Terenure this July!

    Exactly why I don't enter my cars in shows anymore, I was parked in the car park. The general public have no respect.

    That Roller is on Donedeal as of this morning

    So it is! You'd think he would have more photos, it was a lovely car. I'm not a fan of the exterior color (preferred the metallic blue I had on mine) but it's not the worst.

    Was that you going past Artane Castle about 10 this morning? Looked good if it was!

    Ah OK. well another one then. I just remembered the post I quoted, and judging from his posts is local to there, so came here to check.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,062 ✭✭✭✭ Duke O Smiley


    Not mine, as above I sold it to a man from Achill.
