Irish Classic show

Was at it earlier, huge amount of cars there. I was feeling quite overwhelmed by it all. Great day for it too, sooooooo sunny and warm.
There was a good Alfa presence, about half a dozen Bertie coupes and a saloon, two monti's, 2600 spider, a few spiders. That '81 Alfetta saloon was there two, the dual tone job. I quite like it.
When I got back to the car there was a little flyer informing me of the Irish motorshow coming up in september. Apparently the AROC are going to be at it and offering free membership if you sign up at the show. Sounds cool to me.
Saw a maroon 155 as I was leaving, with the black speedline wheels, was that anyone here???

D'oh, no pics. My hungover mind wasn't up to bringing a camera.

@A155, that's a bloody nice 155 you've got there. That Dedra looked pretty cool alright, as did the deltas too.
There really was a good Italian turn out, loads of X1/9's allover the place and a few other Fiat coupes. It was so much better there then last year.

Re: Irish Classic show

That was a late sixties Fiat Dino spider. Luverly or wot.
There was a gorgeous Maserati 3500 there too. Red with tan leather, it looked bloody amazing.

Re: Irish Classic show

You must have been there pretty early Eoin. I saw that Aston when I was going to collect my car from Ranelagh around two. They obviously got tired of sitting around.

Re: Irish Classic show

I still had friday night's hangover to contend with along side saturday night's one. I'm too old for partying two nights in a weekend. But nothing would stop me going to that show.
Can't wait for the car show in september now. Hopefully it'll be better then the last one. Apart from the racing Jags which were very cool, there wasn't a huge amount to see. Very few manufacturers.

Re: Irish Classic show

Here we go, Irish motorshow 16-18 Sep. There'll be an aroc stand there offering free membership for anyone who signs up at the show.
This is still showing details for the last motorshow but I'd say they'll be updating it soon enough, www.motorshowireland.com
Hopefully it'll be decent this year.

Thumbs Up 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!!
