Club Expo is a hugely im­por­tant op­por­tu­nity for the na­tion’s clubs to take stock of the is­sues af­fect­ing how we en­joy our clas­sics. It’s great to see hot top­ics like the short­age of parts and so­cial me­dia com­ing up in this year’s sem­i­nars – and what works for the Ford Y and C Model Regis­ter and Stag Own­ers’ Club will doubt­less work for other clubs too, so it’s en­cour­ag­ing that these top tips are be­ing shared so we can all ben­e­fit.

But what’s re­ally im­por­tant is the launch of the Na­tional His­toric Ve­hi­cle Sur­vey, which if any­thing like the ex­pected 22,000 clas­sic own­ers get in­volved with will give the re­sults real clout with the de­ci­sion mak­ers in both West­min­ster and Brus­sels.

If you care about what you’re per­mit­ted to do with your clas­sic and where you’re al­lowed to take it, then get in­volved and com­plete the sur­vey – for the sake of 10 min­utes you’ll help the clas­sic car move­ment win leg­isla­tive bat­tles for years to come.
