Words & Photos by Henry Phull


Show season truly kicks off for us in early March, when we make the trip up to the Telford International Centre, this time playing host to Ultimate Dubs (UD). There’s always a ton of anticipation regarding what has become the season opener. Although it’s predominately a Volkswagen/Audi-group based show, you’ll find all sorts of custom car fans at the event, there to check out what’s current in the car world, and catching up with old friends. Now our fifth year attending UD, it’s clearly become more of trade event than a typical car show, but, that’s no bad thing… We see it as the perfect opportunity to check out what’s new in the car industry, including new demo/project cars that the host of traders are showing off. It could be described as a mini-SEMA Show for the modified scene in the UK, in fact. With plenty of non-VAG cars on trade booths, a large selection of pre-approved show-cars dotted about throughout the halls, as well as outdoor space with car clubs and more pre-selected cars (don’t forget to check out our Bonus Gallery), we’ve done our best to capture our top-rated slices of metal, enjoy…

The UK car scene is distinctly alive and well… it wasn’t difficult to find cars that we’ve never seen or photographed before, although we typically had to throw in a few of our all-time favourites that just keep getting better and better every time they go on display. But for all those that we missed, fear not… show season has only just kicked off! We can’t wait to get stuck in with more events throughout the year – 2018 is going to be a big one for us. Catch our Pop-Up Store and new demo car soon!
