Last year was my first outing to Europe to experience a car show, it was a last minute decision to head over to Lommel in Belgium with my friend Mark in just one day. The show completely blew me away, and I knew that it would be on my list for this year. After speaking with the organiser, Kristof, I decided it would be worthwhile to trade at the event, a perfect opportunity to offer our European fans a chance to pick up some clothing without having to pay the overseas shipping charges. Naturally, in addition to setting up our pop-up store, I wanted to make the event coverage just as special as last year’s. Therefore, this is one our longest articles yet – so a WIFI connection is recommended before you continue, unless you’ve got unlimited data! You’ll notice the best thing about Euro shows is the pure variation. The Europeans don’t seem to limit themselves at all, so you’ll see plenty of newer Mercedes-Benz’s, Jaguars and even new Fords on air ride – it’s pretty incredible to see, really, as well as the classic cars that have received pristine makeovers. Plus everything in between. With so much to capture, this article highlights the cars that made the event so special for us…

What a turn out, don’t you think? Especially when the afternoon turned into rain showers, which was rather disappointing, although this didn’t seem to stop the attendees. Considering the poor forecast and dim day, the quality and quantity of cars was still incredible and bigger than a lot of UK shows. We all love Euro shows so much, it wasn’t surprising to see handfuls of British cars making it over for the weekend, too. So, if you’re thinking about heading over to Europe, Eurosunday in Lommel is definitely worth it. There’s plenty of accommodation locally for a nice weekend away which works out super cheap if you’re in a group, alternatively stay in Antwerp the night before like we did. It’s really not that far from the Eurotunnel/ferry. Anyway, thanks to Kristof and the whole Eurosunday team for having us. We’ll be back for the next chapter!

Ultimate Dubs 2016

Date: 12/13 March 2016

Location: Telford International Centre, Telford

It’s been a long time coming, but show season has finally returned for 2016, kicking things off last weekend in Telford at the one and only Ultimate Dubs. To most of us this is the big show to start the year with – a perfect opportunity to show off the new builds and projects which have been hidden away during the cold Winter months. With that in mind, there was pure excitement in the air – we’ve all been away from the car community for a a few months which seemed like forever. Not have we been away from the cars, but friends too – so UD is the perfect reunion! Plus, following our success at Ultimate Stance back in November, we decided to bring back our Pop-Up Store for this show, with plans to hit a lot more events throughout the year – so keep your eyes out for us. As hectic as it is trading at a busy show like Ultimate Dubs, we still managed to get some time in for the all-important photographs. So sit back, grab a cuppa, and enjoy what the modified car scene has to offer so far…

 

Our pop-up store all ready for trading!
