From rusty wrecks to stunning cars worth a fortune, the Practical Classics Restoration and Classic Car Show, held at Birmingham’s NEC on 5-6 March, has it all with over 700 classics cars on display.
With displays from 120 car clubs, a fantastic line-up of motoring celebrities including Wheeler Dealers’ Mike Brewer and Edd China, and expert advice and demonstrations, it’s a haven for anyone who likes working on their car, especially those thinking of restoring a classic back to its former glory.
You can also see the latest restored cars in the Lancaster Insurance Pride of Ownership display if you are looking for inspiration but if you want to hear how these cars should sound, then take a Dream Ride with our friends from the Sporting Bears.
Dream Rides offer a ten mile ride as a passenger in one of the cars from the Dream Rides Garage in exchange for a donation to charity. The car you chose will determine the size of your donation and with a mix of marques from British Sports to Italian supercars, there will be plenty to choose from.
There will also be the UK’s biggest display of barn finds with the organisers aiming to beat last year’s mix of 25 vehicles, found in various states of repair.
If you are in the market for a project or new classic car, Silverstone Auctions will gather the best the market has to offer while the UK’s best dealers offer classics to suit all depths of pockets.
As well as more classes for novices and masterclasses for those looking to enhance their skills in the Workshop, more special guests on the live stage and more seminars offering expert advice, there’ll also be more traders with marque specific retailers on offer including the UK’s biggest Spring autojumble.
