Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - OUT & ABOUT -

Around 800 clas­sics are put up for sale at the show ev­ery year. In­side, deal­ers at­tempt to outdo one an­other with in­creas­ingly lav­ish dis­plays, but things are a lit­tle dif­fer­ent out­side. Th­ese pri­vate sell­ers dis­play their cars for all to see right out­side the main en­trance, wel­com­ing you into the show. As ever, the area was brim­ming with Porsches and Mercedes, as well as BMWs, Volk­swa­gens and a few Fi­ats.
