Re: Irish Classic show
Third year in a row, at the IJDC show in terenue. Great day, far better that last year, but not as many trade stalls as previous years. The italian car club stand was smaller that 2003, but the "quality not quantity" definitely applied this year. Very pleased to see the Dino, GTV6 chapperal, 2 montreals, fiat dino etc. The only thing that sort of annoyed me on the day was the attitude of some of the owners, talking to one or two of them was like pulling teeth, especially when showing a geniune interest in their cars.
Especially liked the X1/9's, and would seriously consider purchasing one in the future. Great looking car still, and cheap to buy and live with.
The only other issue with that day was, the All ireland show was held in Streete(Longford) on the same day. Travelling from Sligo, we passed an awful amount of cars heading for that show. Real pity the two shows were on the same day, I would have definitely liked to attend both.
Glad to say we travelled all the way from sligo and back in our 1980 mini, with no problems, comfortable enough, if not a bit noisy. Getting back into the 156 on Monday morning was like getting into a stelt bomber!!
