I organised a wee run back at the start of spring in Carlingford.

3 cars drove up from Dublin.

It was specificaaly orgainsed in Carlingford to make it easier for the most amount of people to attend.

After that I said I wouldnt waste my time again.

Dont know what the problem is but there definately seems to be 2 types of members on this site. Those who want to actually go out and enjoy thier cars and those who just want to talk crap about cars on the forum (which is fair enough, each to thier own etc.).

Meeting in carparks etc is OK but nothing beats getting out for a good drive. Not talking about terrorising the countryside like but leisurely spin with a nice bit of scenery is always good.

As said if plenty of notice is given then folks can save up thier petrol tokens.

Down the west would be good but it would require an overnight for some probably. But if folks actually want to go, with a bit of notice the money can be put aside.

You would have liked the sound of the E60 M5 with the Eisenmann Race system. Would make even your CSL sound like a pussy cat.

Ah well I wasn't here in Spring
And I would have gone cause I was living in Dundalk at the time!

Yeah yer right about getting an aul stretch out. We were up the Dublin Mountains and it was some drive back down to Tallaght

Yer also right about the plenty of notice, at least noone can give out and say that they didn't know. I know Alex is trying to get a few of us down for the Ennis event so hopefully we will get a few to that (Name already down )
