Show in­vite for clubs

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - ❚ www.necrestora­

The or­gan­is­ers of the Prac­ti­cal Clas­sics Clas­sic Car and Restora­tion Show say they are wel­com­ing more clas­sic car clubs than ever be­fore to this year’s ex­panded three-day event.

More than 130 groups will at­tend, in­clud­ing 26 clubs mak­ing their show de­but at Birm­ing­ham’s NEC, from 31 March to 2 April.

Lead­ing the charge of the new­bies is the MG Car Club, a reg­u­lar at­tendee at the Clas­sic Mo­tor Show at the NEC ev­ery Novem­ber and a club known for its fan­tas­tic dis­plays.

Club gen­eral man­ager Adam Slo­man says: ‘We’re re­ally look­ing for­ward to ap­pear­ing at the show for the first time this year – we’ve had a lot of feed­back from mem­bers about how good the show is and we can’t wait to be part of it.’

Mar­que-spe­cific clubs at­tend­ing in­clude the Free­lander Own­ers’ Club, which kicks off a year of cel­e­bra­tions to mark the 20th an­niver­sary of the Free­lander in 2017; the Volvo Own­ers’ Club marks 90 years on the clock for the man­u­fac­turer, and UKSaabs pays trib­ute to 30 years of the Saab con­vert­ible.

With around 1000 ve­hi­cles on dis­play, the in­ter­ac­tive show once again prom­ises a fan­tas­tic mix of live demon­stra­tions, ex­pert ad­vice, stun­ning clas­sics and spe­cial­ists traders.

The BMW Car Club is one of more than 130 clubs tak­ing part in this year’s show.
