Our Postcard from the 2017 Classic Motor Show

Further to our post: Our Top 10 Cars from the 2017 Classic Motor Show, and Photos from the 2017 Classic Motor Show here is our postcard from the event.  This was the 33rd Classic Motor Show, and it took up halls 1, 2, 3, 3a, 4 and 5, meaning we had 92,903 square metres to cover.

We have a familiar pattern now, having attended this event so many times.  We love to start off in the cars for sale area, just to dream of what we might come to have in our garage in the future (as long as those prices don’t continue to climb).  A few cars that we really liked were the Ford GT40s for sale vis Total Headturners for circa £80k (above) and the stunning Triumph Italia 2000 by Vignale on the Meguiars stand.  Both beautiful cars.

I’m reliably informed there were 70,896 attendees, 2500 cars on display and 257 car clubs.  After looking at the cars for sale, we wandered into the Silverstone Auctions area, again dreaming of cars we’d like to one day own.  Our favourite was the

1973 Porsche 911 2.7 R-Gruppe

Lot: 629
The ultimate ‘Hot-Rod’ Porsche 911.  We love the colour.  It sold for £100,050.  Wow.

Total sales from the auction were £3.6million, a 67% sale rate.

We then chilled out walking around the car clubs, autojumble, spend a few pounds, then finally got to the Discovery Channel stand where a few car TV guys were talking.  Show done.  With hands full of tools and other car related stuff, I was done by 5.30pm, ready for the journey home.

A big well done to the organisers again, each year the event is wonderful, and we cannot wait to next year.  All our photos from the Classic Motor Show can be seen here on our Facebook Album, or our Instagram account.  Now a little break until the new year.  Keep on motoring…and watching out for our next classic car show ticket give away, which is Autosport International and the Performance Car Show.

Next years Classic Motor Show will take place on 9-11 November 2018.
