  • Registered Users Posts: 4,027 ✭✭✭ Silvera


    Thanks for the info the evil belly.

    I wonder if they do the modern (small font plates) or the old style large font plates ?


    Old style large font plate....


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 294 ✭✭ the evil belly


    well the plates i got off em are modern font size but then they are for a 96 so thats not an issue. best bet is to ring and ask em or pm me all the stuff you want to know and i'll drop in either later today or early next week. iirc the guy there said he had almost 1000 fonts though. they make the plates up on the spot too afaik

    By the way, on further investigation of this particular thread, it looks as if no mention is made of my own venture ;)

    http://welcome.to/classiccarsireland

    I source/transport/import Classic Cars from the continent (Holland/France). Over the years I have started specialising in good to very good, low mileage/few owners examples that have originated from sunnier climes...

    There's a revamped website under way, so please bear with me ;)

    May be of interest to some of you!!!

    “MY Car Storage ”




    Have you ever thought “Oh I’d like that classic car but where will I park it?” or “ I really need to garage my car/s” I hope, I have provided the answers for you with “My Car Storage” facilities.

    Being a classic car enthusiast and after looking around for storage I would be happy with for my own vehicles, I felt there was a need for secure dry storage with easy access. Unlike most, I offer amongst other services; easy access to your vehicle 7 days a week and most importantly dry indoor secure storage.

    I am also aware that older cars do not like to be started for short periods and with that in mind, we are limiting the number of vehicles stored so that they do not have to be moved, unless there is an emergency.

    • Within 30min from Dublin
    • Road adjacent to the M50 and N11
    • Dry, condensation free storage
    • Fully alarmed
    • Short or long term storage
    • Tyre pressures checked, battery etc
    6 x 3 Parking Bay
    • Easy access to your vehicle 7 days a week
    • 10% discount when rental paid by direct debit

    We are here to help you protect your investment by providing a quality service at a starting rate of € 140.00 per month.

    You can gain access:
    • Monday – Friday between 9am and 5pm
    • Saturday 9am – 1pm
    • Sunday and after hours by prior arrangement


    And there’s more:



    At “My Car Storage” we also provide the following services:

    • Detail valeting service (“Show Standard” available)
    • Full range of car covers and carcoons for hire or for sale
    • Sourcing cars (Helping you find the right car for you)
    • Sourcing parts (Brochures and parts catalogues available with friendly advice, if you require)
    • Sourcing accessories (and anything else you might need)
    • Work bay for you to give you car the TLC it may need (Inquire)

    Guys,

    Anybody know of a good outfit that will tune a V6 with tripple webers? I am looking for someone around the Dublin Area.


    Also anyone looking for Silver on Black number plates would do well to contact Euro Plates. They are located out near Batterstown and their number can be found in the phone book. They manufactured plates for me which were absolutely non standard.

    Cheers,

    Beanderb4.:confused:
