After visiting Homegrown last week, the South’s biggest German-only meet, I decided to go a bit further afield this time to check out the Midlands’ alternative, Dub Club, held every Wednesday evening in Nuneaton just outside of Coventry. A 300 mile round trip for a car meet… am I mad? Probably. For me though it’s now become about more than the cars themselves, and I use these meetings to catch up with friends I’ve met through Slam Sanctuary and my photography, it makes it all worthwhile. In an attempt to beat the evening rush hours, I set off and arrived at the venue around 7pm – I was a bit early, but cars finally started to arrive from about half past. A very varied quality of cars appeared throughout the night, with lots of gems of course. Here are some of the cars that caught my eye…

Unless I get myself a diesel I probably won’t be hitting Dub Club again for a while, but that’s due to me living on the South coast! If I was closer, I’d no doubt be there every week. If you’re local to the Coventry area then I’d definitely suggest heading on down if you’ve never been. It’s already been going on for years, but after talking with a couple of the organisers, the meet is certainly on the way to bigger things with an awesome quality selection of cars and a chilled out vibe – what more could you want on a Summer’s evening?
