When Dee posted about having a reunion night like the meets we used to have a few years back I’m sure I wasn’t the only one with more than a passing interest. Back then what started as the Monday night dub meet at Sprucefield slowly transformed into a huge meet for cars of all makes and models drawing people from as far as Omagh and Enniskillen.
The few days leading to the meet saw weather change from blistering heat to thunder storms and the day of the meet was no different but oddly the weather held off all over Sprucefield until after 12 midnight. Result!
The weather in other areas didn’t put many off though with an estimate of a few hundred cars showing up ranging from rumbling VXR8s and supercharged Civics to static slammed MR2s and bagged Golfs and a few guys with big installs providing some background music for the masses.
Oddly, although we still see a lot of the people involved in the original meets, it was odd reminiscing about how things had changed both car wise and home wise with lots getting married, having kids, swapping insurance friendly small engines for huge turbo one and cheap coilovers for the latest bag set up.
With things winding down in the evening and the batteries run dry in the remote drift cars the weather finally caught up with Sprucefield meaning we packed it in around 12 and headed home.
