Well it looks like this is going to happen. BUS & BUGFEST Ireland 14th-16th July 2023 hosted in killbeggen by Mossey Conlon. He was being accused of copying the guys over at MLVW but he’s not into the newer stuff. I’ll add to this at a later date but our idea has become a reality but in the hands of someone elseI would be up for that and I am sure if we get a couple of heads together we could make it a good show. Anyone interested? If so we should make a new thread and float the idea with the club. No harm giving the nboc type2 folks and any other air-cooled a shout either and come up with something.
I think this was on about a month ago?So any word or details of the show itinerary, events, admission ect. Must be close now but I see no advertising details around kilbeggan yet.
Sorry, I meant the aircooled show in Kilbeggan mid July, I cant seem to find any info on it anywhere about admission pricing, whats on there on the day.I think this was on about a month ago?
I meet up with them in Kells or some other vag gang who were out on a spin on Saturday and staying kilbeggan for a show the next day.
I spoke to a good few classic car guys recently, and they all feel that 35 euro for admission is a very high figure. Not a lot of thought there really. 115 euro for a weekend attendance at a show for camping may be one thing, but just to walk in and look around for the same price, is a bit odd. Some of the lads I spoke to wont be going, they're heading to Mullingar classic car show instead.Wouldn't be a bad idea to make a separate post or sticky about this event seeming that it's so near. But hats off to mossy for getting this off the ground. I know that there are costs involved for any show involving the public, but if it starts a good show off that will grow I am up for it. And I do hope that it's a air-cooled highlight.
My engine is the CU aircooled type 4 engine, same as the one used in the Porsche 914, the early T25 aircooled unit.I have to make a couple of calls and get back to you on that . Is your bay a CT or cu engine?
Is it in a T25 or a T2 bay. My own engine has the twin solex fitted that appears to run well on start up, but with no tinware I cant bring it down the road.Mines a cu engine. Carburetors were a bit of a issue. Solex type. Would not mind converting to a single carb manifold if possible.
