The Telford International Centre has become something of a second home for us. Starting the show season off with Ultimate Dubs in March, and finishing it in November with Ultimate Stance, both shows are certainly a must if you’re interested in custom cars – the perfect opportunity to see what’s new in the car scene. If you’re not an avid Volkswagen/VAG fan, Ultimate Stance might be the preferred show for you, however. Being open to all marques, there’s plenty of interesting stanced cars on display to take your fancy, whereas the display cars at Ultimate Dubs are strictly ‘VAG’. Being the final event of the year, we’ve typically seen most of these cars throughout the year, nonetheless, there were still a handful of gems that seemed to have appeared from nowhere, as well as a few European cars that made the long journey over. Overall, there was plenty to look at, including a UK Lowrider display keeping everyone entertained outdoors (check out the Bonus Gallery), and the carpeted hall which we were based in also hosted a retro car display and retro arcade and pinball zone. Here’s a few of our highlights…

As always, Ultimate Stance had an incredibly high standard of cars to drool over… the show never disappoints. It also marked the launch of our Winter clothing collection which went down an absolute storm – big thanks to everyone that popped by our store and picked up something, whether it was anything from a sticker to a hoodie… we couldn’t do what we do without you guys and girls. We’ll be back in the same location for Ultimate Dubs on March 11 with our new Spring collection – you’re not going to want to miss it! Get those cars finished and we’ll see you soon!
