The "Ultimate" car show of the year.

Towards the end of the year there isn't much going on for shows or meets for that matter as we either put our cars away or for some swapping over to winter wheels getting ready for Xmas and making a plan for our cars for next year.

There is one show though that finishes off the year, does so in style and that is Ultimate Stance. Taking place at the Telford International Centre for the last few years it has fast become arguably the best modified/stance show in the UK.

Having attended the previous year and being blown away by how great it was, there was no way I would miss this year's for anything. What I like the most about the event is the organising by the people behind this and they have got everything right with the entertainment, cars, trade stands etc. And because of the location if you do decide to make a weekend out of it, the hotels are within a short walking distance as well as a shopping centre with plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from.

With large halls in the venue there was plenty of stunning machinery to see and there were a lot of different cars inside from last year so whether it is your first time or you attented before there is no shortgage of cars to admire.

Here is some highlights from the show:

Shaun Grazette's bagged E92 on Blitz Technospeed
Steve Smith's E46 M3 featured in Sept 2016 Performance BMW magazine
Sumil's E39 530i featured in March 2016 Performance BMW magazine.
Dips at Custom Cars bagged E46 M3 on a set of one off custom sandwich mounted ACT wheels

One of my favourites from the show was this classic 1st generation Skyline GT-R
Edward Johnston's wide arch E36 M3 Tourer
Something you don't see often a Eurocco VW kit car.
Alex Hurd's E46 330 on classic Work wheels.
Beautiful paint job on this VW lupo.
Scott Cheeseman's Esquiss wide body E36 on rare DPE splits
Bek's bagged E39 540i looked impressive on a set of classic BBS RS's.
Lala Miah's E24 635 a.k.a Jaws.
This year there a few additions one of which was arcade machines put up in the hall which were a great draw and brought back the nostalgic years of growing up on classics like Daytona USA, Pac Man, Defender etc. Best of all they didn't require any coins and were free to play.

Outside there were low riders kitted out with hyrdaulic suspension showing off their bouncing abilities. If you have never seen it in real life its a must see as you will witness a car do something that is normally impossible.
There were some impressive cars outside parked in the club stands and show & shine areas.
Andy Guyett's E36 tourer now rolling on a set of rare Racing Dynamic RSS 3 piece wheels.

Last years show was mighty impressive and this year was no different. There is no way you could fault it whatsoever. There are so many car shows each year but there is nothing that right now can top Ultimate Stance for cars, entertainment, trade stands or atmosphere. If you are sat here reading this and never been, then look out for 2017 dates and make a weekend out of it.
