London versus Birmingham
My friend and I attended the London Classic Car Show on Saturday 25 February and I thought I’d share my thoughts on it with you.
The show featured a large hall, which was essentially dominated by expensive restoration specialists using it as a showroom. The central road within the hall displayed several mobile displays of classics during the day, while a number of trade stands were fitted in to the periphery of the hall.
A second and much smaller hall displayed further highly-priced classic specialist cars for sale, plus a small number of rather less exotic classics for the ordinary enthusiast and further trade stands. The Coys auction was certainly the highlight for this hall.
We felt that the £27 entrance fee (plus an additional £15 for parking) for this show is excessive to say the least for the very limited content!
My advice to anyone is to visit the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show in Birmingham in November instead, which is about five times the size of the London show and a fabulous day out. Gary Coleman, Hampshire
