Some photos from the TGTT Archive

2006/2007 I think. Mackers, Domo's, YBY's, my first auto, oh the memories! This is only a small selection of what was in NI at the time, Southern Ireland was full of them. In terms of early importers Madden Motors down South brought a lot of them in initially, Grahams of Saintfield brought 88 in up North around the same time (1998 ish) and both were well beaten to the punch by Trevor Rosborough who brought a 1990 GT in way back in 1991. He set up a trading post on TGTT years later and helped a lot of folks find themselves hooked on boost. That's an Evo he was selling at the time of the meet.

NI pretty much got them first, they spread into the South and then the Mainland UK cottoned on to the act. Then it all took off!

That Advance was the first TDo4 Starlet built in the British Isles and was auto, the blue GT was the first manual TDo4. Both built by the brilliant Craig Brothers in Ballyclare.

A few old ones from the 'Trevor' folder - think he imported all of these, wonder how many are left?

Tell me about it - doesn't feel that long ago!

Earliest meet I have pics from would be 2002/2003 ish. Some of the original North Stars on the way to a Dublin Airport meet.

I ended up breaking the two on the left, the advances I've lost track of and the one at the end is squirrelled away in a garage (same owner all these years).

I was at some of those meets. I remember meeting Trevor that day in the black evo that day in Belfast. If memory serves me right I stayed in your house. Wowzers
