A cold Thursday in October night saw a number of members of the modified car community come
together in an underground car park situated in The Plaza Hotel, Tallaght. Temple St.Children’s
Hospital is a place that I’m sure most of us have been in or will be in at some stage of our lives. This
meet was all in the hope of raising money that the hospital is in need of.
I arrived at the meet early in the hope of lending a hand to the organiser’s in whatever way I could.
I was given the task of collecting money at the entrance which enabled me to have a snoop on the
good standard of cars that arrived on the night.
A wide variety of cars arrived throughout the night, predominantly German and Japanese
machinery. It was nice to see two different sets of styles come together on the night for such a
A number of traders were present at the meet where proceeds from sales were going to Temple St.
We were rocking our own stand with the lads at TheStickyrings.com
Elite AutoClean were also present doing a demonstration of their winter protection on a tasty ep91.
The work the lads did on the car in just over two hours was only short of amazing. They also graced
us with the presence of their R34 V-Spec Nur II and a genuine kitted TRD Supra. These cars are rare
enough to come across on their own but to have the two of them together on one night was a sight
The custom made offsets on these Volk GTC’s really make this Supra.
Lurking in the background of the carpark was these two Charade turbos. These cars have been built
from the ground up by their owners and are seriously cool! These are sure to be some of the finest
examples left on this island with them becoming rarer all the time.
This e46 M3 was sitting mean on it’s CSL wheels. Such a cool looking car when they are done right.
The driver of this particular Hachi decided to go for a different parking style. Good to see a clean one
of these going around. No cibbies or supershites here, just a simple look with Work Equip 03’s and
Tec Arts arches setting it of nicely.
Not only had people donated money to get into the carpark they also bought their fair share in raffle
tickets. Prizes were donated free of charge to this, dyno-runs, hampers, strut braces, helmets, the
list could go on and on. The generosity of people to this cause was nothing short of amazing. What
better car to do a raffle from than this stunning example of a STi wagon.
All in all this was a very enjoyable night for everyone that attended with well over €2000 raised
for a worthy cause. We here at Freshfix would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone that
attended, purchased tickets, donated prizes and of course a big well done to the organisers Ash and
Katie. Well done guys, we look forward to the next one!
