Japfest 2016 at Silverstone. It was the first big show of 2016 and besides the nightmare of a new ticket system that Chris had to deal with, what an awesome start to the show season for the club.
Considering the date being a month earlier than usual we pulled together and managed to have over 30 cars on show and some extremely nice examples at that!
It was good to see a nice mix of s-bodies including s13’s, s14’s, s14a’s, a ps13, a sil80 and an s15.
We even had the pleasure of Def’s rx8!!!
Silverstone did a great job of hosting the event and the BDC drifters put on some incredible drift demo’s so a huge thanks to them.
Thank you all for attending and hope to see you all again at more events throughout the year. And a massive thanks to ChrisCooke for organising as it wouldn’t of happened without you.

For the first time this year SXOC had a stand at the Festival of Classic and Sports cars which is held every year at Helmingham Hall just north of Ipswich. There are a wide range of cars on show both on club stands and as individual exhibits. Other clubs included Pistonheads, Jag XK Enthusiasts Club, Mustang Owners Club and BMW OC. If you add to this the individual exhibits which included a Ferrari 458, Old School Fords, a Vintage Bentley and a few Nobles it made for a very interesting show.
The club made a good effort with 5 S Bodies on show and also showed off our new flags, hopefully in the future the attendance from members will grow as this has the potential to be one of the club”s main attractions.
What makes this show a little different from the other static shows is that they have a Concours area but twice during the day the owners get to show their pride and joy off, by driving it up and down the main drive of the hall which is around 200m long. This breaks the day up nicely and is a great photo opportunity.
We are already looking forward to 2015 and hopefully the club will have a bigger stand. One last thing, the pulled pork burgers are to die for, but you need to get in early 😉

Sunday saw the first official SXOC Ireland meet of 2014. We decided to run it alongside the well established monthly Cars & Coffee meet, organised by Backroads.ie, in Cherrywood industrial estate. The event always yields a good turnout, with a quality mix
of cars from Japanese to US muscle, supercars to classics, and everything in between.
There were four S-Bodies present on the day, which is about 4 more than are usually in attendance! The Irish S-Body scene has unfortunately dwindled massively in recent years. The combination of lack of work, owners emigrating, rising tax, fuel, and insurance costs, have largely forced the majority of cars off the road. Consigned to sheds or trailers, they have been a rare enough sight out and about over the past while. However today has shown that things are perhaps not as bleak as they were, and that the 200SX is alive & well on these shores. With some familiar old faces, and welcome new
