The level of cars at Dubshed was very surprising to be honest. Most of the cars both inside and outside the sheds were top notch. Even in the picture above you can get a glimpse of just how fantastic the penis on the roof of this Passat was. The attention to detail was superb.
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!
This is a very interesting build, the car is a 996 shape 911 but has been given some new clothes. The exterior now enjoys a full 997 conversion. Its one of only a handful known in the world and was completed using genuine Porsche parts. The car was built by the Lurgan Legend John Penden from Penden Conceptz in the North of Ireland.
I was told of a small VW meet which was happening close to home so I decided to tag along and see what would show up.
This VW caddy was one of the first on the scene. The Mercedes Flat 15 Slot’s looked awesome under the arches. Funny enough they were hand polished and took over two weeks!
