WE ARE FAMILY! (at the NEC)
The theme for this year’s Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show at the NEC on 10-12 November has been announced as Family Ties.
The event is expected to attract more than 270 classic clubs, which have been invited to embrace the theme on their stand with their own interpretation. Acting show director, Lee Masters, explains: ‘The classic motoring community is one huge family, but so is the motoring industry. Manufacturers create various models ,which are in families, with one model being billed as the sister car to another.
‘Plus, there are those cars that have been passed down through families, from generation to generation – the motor your dad taught you to drive in, or the family saloon that took you on your first holiday.’
Lee is asking club members to consider how classic cars tie individuals together, whether that’s through friendships or relationships that formed because of classics, or through a car’s history as it was passed from family member to family member.
More than 2500 classic cars and motorbikes will be on display in 2017, spanning over 100 years of motoring heritage, and covering 12 football pitches of floor space.
Clubs are being asked to display cars with family ties, such as this Vauxhall VX220 (left) and Vauxhall 30/98.
