WIN! A Car S.O.S package at the British Motor Museum
The British Motor Museum is home to the world’s largest collection of historic British Cars, with cars from the 1900s to the present day. Located about 20 minutes from Warwick, just outside of the village of Gaydon, there are two buildings to explore, free guided tours, costumed explainers, family activities, as well as an outdoor play area and a fully licensed café. Curated to include the social history side of motoring life, there is plenty to keep the nonenthusiast happy as well as those with a passionate knowledge of cars.
The Car S.O.S exhibition features seven cars that have been rebuilt by the Car S.O.S TV show’s team, including three still shining from restoration in the most recent series.
On display is a pre-war Austin ‘Tilly’ truck which underwent a sympathetic overhaul, a vibrant yellow Lancia Delta Integrale with a touching back story, and a rare AC Aceca sports car along with four others: MGA, Volvo P1800, Aston Martin DB6 and a Ford Capri RS3100.
Graphics and clips from the relevant episodes run alongside each of the cars detailing the many technical dilemmas Tim and Fuzz had to get the cars back to their best. They also give an insight into some of the personal stories and challenges faced by each of the cars’ owners.
