The organisers claim that thePractical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show is the show to attend whether you are looking to reignite your passion for cars, finish a restoration project or simply want to reminisce with family and friends over the beautiful completed classic cars on display.
Based on my visit on Friday 24th March, I would have to agree with them. There was certainly something for everyone. What struck me this year was the number of cars surrounded by mechanics whilst on their individual display stands. Truly a “hands on” show.
The event brings together 1000+ cars on display; 160+ car clubs representing various marques and models; 250+exhibitors and autojumblers including restoration companies, services providers and product suppliers; the Classic Car Auction; celebrities; car competitions; practical workshops on restoration skills and lots more. If you have petrol, or volts, these days, coursing through your veins, then this is the show to be at.
Here are some of the exhibits that caught my eye –

That’s all folks, I hope that you have enjoyed looking at the photos.
