Postcard from the 2016 Classic Motor Show

lancaster-insurance-classic-motor-showSo here it is, our postcard from the 2016 Classic Motor Show.  It only seems like yesterday that we attended this event. How a year passes. It is truly a great event for us Classic Car fans.

This year they had more TV celebs than ever before, and it seemed bigger than ever, as we only just made it round the show in the day, and yes we did buy a thing or two, but alas not a car.

It is so frustrating to see so many beautiful cars, want to buy them, but not have the spare funds (yet) to do so. Every year I say I’ll be in a position to buy one next year, but that year comes and goes. Arrgghhhhhhhhh. Anyone else get that deja vu. Maybe next year.

We spent most of the morning looking around all the cars for sale, dreaming (probably like most of you) about the cars we’d most like to have in our dream garage.  Here are 6 that I’d love…

I think all these wonderful classic cars would cost me about £1.5 million, £400k a piece for the Jaguar XJ220 and the Lamborghini Countach, Jaguar E-Type would be circa £100-150k, Ford GT40 recreation at £70k, Jaguar D-Type recreation at £70k and the Auburn Speedster (no idea on price, so guessing) at £400k.  We’ll keep on dreaming then.

There were various displays, presentations and shows on through the day we went (Friday) and the weekend, and on the Friday we saw a few talks from the Wheeler Dealer boys, Ant Anstead and Fuzz Townsend.

The Megiuars stand as always was awesome (see below).

As was the Porsche Owners Club stand (see below).

But our favourite club stand was by the Maserati owners club, which had an array of beautiful cars.  3 of our favourite cars from the show featured below.

We can’t wait to next year, and this will be firmly in our diary as a MUST ATTEND. Keep following us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube or our Newsletter for next years competitions to win yourself a pair of complementary tickets.
