The nights may be drawing in, and you may well have been forced to put the heating on, but that doesn’t mean you should be kept away from the classics. That’s why, at the beginning of every November, the halls of Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre are filled to the rafters with over 300 club stands, 3000 cars, more tools than you can throw a Snap-On van at and tens of thousands of people who all share one passion – classic cars. This is the NEC Lancaster Classic Motor Show.
Whether it’s veteran cars, modern classics, performance icons or work-a-day cars from the past, this show has it all. There truly is something for everyone with an interest in cars. The F40s are balanced out by the Fords and the Audis, and Alfa Romeos run strong, the Triumphs are a triumph in numbers, and everything in between.
There are trade stands full of tools, parts and panels. There’s an autojumble in which you can find those hard to obtain parts. There are dealer stands featuring the best cars for sale, there’s the big Silverstone Auctions event on the Saturday, and then there’s the live events like the knowledge-filled restoration theatre, the live stage with people like TV’s Paul Cowland, Drew Pritchard and Mike Brewer et al.
If you’ve not yet been, you really should go. We’ll be offering you the chance to win tickets to next year’s event in due course. Until then, feast your eyes on this gallery of images that we took while walking the halls yesterday….
