12/05/19 - MLVW Show

My second trip to Kilbeggan in as many weeks was well worth the journey for the MLVW show, which was sponsored by J & A Commercials. It was held on the same site as the American V8 show a few weeks back. 
There was some drop dead gorgeous vehicles turned out for the show.

06/05/19 - JPCCNI Cars And Coffee

The JPCCNI (Japanese Performance Car Club of Northern Ireland , I think ) are very active on the club scene. I'd been thinking about going up to their regular Cars And Coffee event in Lisburn on the first Monday of each month for the past while. I missed out on the Cars And Coffee event at the weekend, so I decided to go up the JPCCNI event and I was disappointed. Disappointed that I'd left it for so long! Wow, some absolutely stunning machinery there and the lads were saying that there would normally be more cars but the club had run the Loughgall show on Saturday and the owners probably took a break. I will have to go back another night so .....

Who do you think you are, Joey Dunlop?

I was at the 2019 VJMC Show in Dublin today and was in awe of some of the stunning machinery on display. One machine that really grabbed my attention was an immaculate 1997 RVF400 NC35. I was shooting around it when I noticed that it was signed by the late Joey Dunlop. I enquired about the back story to this and think it's well worth sharing the details.

05/05/2019 - 2019 VJMC Show

The VJMC Show is always one of the highlights of the year for me and even though today's visit was short, it was really well worth it. There was plenty to see and some nice bikes too.....

Some photos from the 2009 event.
The late, great William Dunlop doing what he did best
It's just not right to write a caption like that, he seemed invincible on the bike.
