MIKE BREWER WHEELER DEALER

‘I’m ready for an­other great week­end at the NEC. And what makes it so great is that I get to meet so many like-minded in­di­vid­u­als who, like me, just want to keep as many clas­sics on the road as pos­si­ble. We’re all on a res­cue mis­sion, even if it’s saving just one car at a time.’

ANT AN­STEAD NEW WHEELER DEALER

‘I can’t wait. This show gets the me­chan­i­cal juices flow­ing. It’s a fan­tas­tic week­end with diehard clas­sic fans. The cars are un­real, and the barn-find dis­play blows me away year af­ter year.’

JAMES WALSHE AS­SIS­TANT EDITOR, PRAC­TI­CAL CLAS­SICS

‘ The real he­roes of the show are the hun­dreds of club mem­bers who give their time and en­ergy in the pur­suit of shar­ing their pas­sion. Re­gard­less of the type of clas­sic you own – or are think­ing of buy­ing – these ded­i­cated vol­un­teers are avail­able and will­ing to share their wis­dom and en­thu­si­asm to vis­i­tors through­out the week­end. Talk­ing of he­roes, come to the stand and you can see the stun­ning restora­tion of the 30th Lo­tus Esprit S1. You know, the one that Roger Moore took for a dip in the Med’…’

DAVID SIMIS­TER EDITOR, CLAS­SIC CAR WEEKLY

‘For me, the auc­tion looks re­ally ex­cit­ing. I’ve taken a look at some of the cars on of­fer and I can tell you there’s go­ing to be some pretty in­ten­sive bid­ding. Of course, the show is much more than that. I’m also very sup­port­ive of the Skill Shack work­shop theatre and the demon­stra­tions on the club stands - it’s the sort of know-how our hobby needs. Se­ri­ously, main­te­nance is a hugely im­por­tant part of our pas­sion so it’s also worth­while get­ting your­self along to a show like this. As much as your pride and joy is a faith­ful com­pan­ion, ev­ery now and then it can be prone to let­ting you down. Get your­self to the show.’
