This is a little scary, there is no other of putting it. Can you guess what car this used to be??
They Just don’t make ‘em like they used to…
We decided to take the trip up to Dubshed up the North of Ireland. Having missed it the year before I really wanted to make sure to get it up on the site this time around. As I’ve said many times, the Japanese car scene dominates the south of Ireland. There’s nothing wrong with that at all, to each his own but the intentions of making Juicebox in the first place was to get a good mix of decent cars on the website which represent to finer parts of the Irish car culture. Finding a decent VW down the south really is a hard mission. Yes they do exist. But usually their owners aren’t the type of people to have them on show or really bring them around too often to be photographed. Even finding them online is quite the challenge. We ended up seeing so many car’s from the south at the show which left us scratching our heads wondering where they had come from!
Its no secret that the Japanese scene has a bigger following in Ireland then the German when it comes to cars, but in saying that the German car following has really come on again in the past few years with the younger generation. There seems to be cars popping up all over the place and its a different take to the older generation who appreciate the more standard looking car. We decided to head to the Treacy’s in Portlaoise meet which had been organised by members of Vagdrivers.net. I really wanted get more of a variety up on the site, and the Portlaoise meet would show the variations in styling from the different generations of enthusiast of the VAG scene.
