Stobart

Post by niallm » Mon Jun 15, 2009 12:40 pm

Well a few of you know me already and for those who dont Im niall and my car is Stobart

The first car in this scheme was Billys old 89 G 3855 racing green mini which after changing hands many times eventually arrived at my door
This car had a special place in my heart as it was my wedding car but alas in the big house move and no money to fund repairs I decided to let it go.

But now im back and sorted it was time to build another so after collecting parts peices and bits for 6 months the build started 9 days ago with the target of being at the Modello 50th birthday.
A big thanks has to be paid to
Paul Hickey(Hickey race enginnering)
Paul Kelly(minifix)
Mark Byrne
Simon Stewart(miniireland)
Willie Peacham
And most important of all THE WIFE :)

Here is the real car
Image

Heres My first Stobart (Billys old car)With Holly at the wheel(Its her car -so she told me)
Image



The bottom line was we got there but the clutch failed on track which ment no parade lap for me but no too worry.

I know my car may not be to everyones liking but I love the rally cars and everyone has an exworks 60's replica these days so i wanted to be different

Ive been drifting in and out of the IMOC for along time now and renewed my membership yesterday.So now I hope to meet a few new faces at future events

Niall

Thanks for renewing your membership, Niall. The IMOC has had its share of ups and downs over the past 20 years of its existence but the turnout at recent events like MTM, Mosney, and yesterday's Mini 50 shows the club is definitely on an up right now.

Catch you later on in the year,

Billy

I left laughing

Needs alot of work TBH

What happened this 850 Niall ? I remember taking a look at it and taking it for a test drive. If I could have trailered it away I would have taken it that day. Just didnt enjoy the thought of driving it to Limerick with the brakes and exhaust the way they were.....otherwise I loved it :D
And I said, Officer, I didn't want to be drunk in public...I wanna be drunk in the bar. Now last time I checked it was still legal to be drunk in the bar. They threw me into public...arrest them!
