The Ulster Folk & Transport Museum played host to a brand new date on the Northern Ireland show calendar with the first Let's Stance show and shine.
Letstance… Let Stance… Lets Stance… we’ll call it Let’s Stance. In early 2014 friends Rowen Corey and Simon Clarke decided that they should take their passion for modified cars to the next level and set about creating a new all marque show and Let’s Stance was born.
After much deliberation the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum was selected to host the event – after all a show at a transport museum made sense. The space provided room for 250 cars, had on-site toilets, catering, other activities to keep people entertained and of course, had no speedbumps – a must for a show representing stance.
Living just a few miles away from the show we decided the pack up our Fitted State gear and take a look. We were joined by our friends Niall Gerety and his Jetta, Keith Healy and his EK Civic, Adam’s Up!, Aaron and his A3 and the guys from Design RMC with some of their most recently completed cars such as Baron’s Porsche 911, Ryan’s A5, Moe’s MK6 and Brownes A4 avant.
Walking around the show we seen a lot of familiar cars, some we hadn’t seen in a while and some that we had never seen before. Highlights for us included Blaine Leathem’s BMW E31 840, Mark Stewart’s 1 series, Daniel Henderson’s Exeo, Martin Neal’s Air-cooled Beetle, Toners 350z and Stephen Chambers MK7 Fiesta which finally had a full matching set of WatercooledIND MD1’s.
When the weather took a turn for the worse and we were subjected to some drizzle we decided to take a trip into the museum and enjoy some of the classic trains, cars and trams that were on display. We even got an insight into how things used to be as we walked around 20th century Ulster in buildings which had been collected from various parts of Ireland and rebuilt in Cultra to recreate the period village.
We would like to congratulate all the guys and girls from Let’s Stance on a successful first show, we look forward to seeing how you grow for 2016.
