Re: Clubman Estate Barn Find - Co. Galway

As Eamonn Murphy pointed out to me this morning, this build thread was never really finished off so to bring the past seven years to a conclusion, here's some photos which show the finished project.

Re: The making of Marty.

Welcome to the IMOC forum Marty. It's always good to hear of a new project and the great thing about this forum is that it creates a permanent log of your progress. The '97 Jap engine was the pre-'96 Spi (single-point injection) engine not the European-spec Mpi (Multi-point injection) as the aircon ...

Re: Another Dodgy Mini

A lot of talk lately on facebook about Landrovers and Range Rovers from the 90s and newer being put on ZV plates etc. It's unfortunately the same with Minis. A Mini that was discussed here before with a reg from an earlier car, 922KZI, has turned up again on Adverts. The lad selling it claims it's a...

Good man Geoffrey,

I had a '99 1.3 Starlet a few years ago and it's a lively car with a sweet gearbox.

Keep the updates coming,

IMOC in Irish Vintage Scene

Picked up the January edition of Irish Vintage Scene to check out the list of club events planned around the country for 2018 and sure enough, there's a report on the Charleville show last June with a photo of IMOC members taken by Andrew Pollock. Andrew is the editor of Retro Classics and features ...

FYI, the Mini Cooper Register's Innocenti guru is a guy called Foster Charlton. I'm sure he could point you in the d...

IMM2018

Just checked and Irish Ferries have announced their sailing dates and prices for next May. I can get a return sailing for two people with cabin for €382 with Tesco vouchers. That's for Rosslare-Cherbourg with a choice of dates all at the same price. Stena are quoting €300 without cabin. You can comp...

Great weekend, JP and fair play for organising it. The IOAC venue was excellent with spotless toilets, showers, washing facilities, electrical hook-up and supervised activities for the kids. Well worth trying out for anyone camping in the south-east. It's got great potential for next year's camping ...
