Clas­sic clubs out in force

Manch­ester Clas­sic Car Show 2017

Practical Classics (UK) - - PRODUCT NEWS -

Andy Rouse used to be the man be­hind Novem­ber’s Clas­sic Mo­tor Show at the NEC and he now puts on the Foot­man James Manch­ester Clas­sic Car Show (September 16-17) – so it’s no sur­prise that the event is like a warm up for Birm­ing­ham’s huge ex­trav­a­ganza.

Says Andy: ‘Clubs are at the heart of the Manch­ester show, and this year we’ve had the most amaz­ing sup­port from them – by the end of June we’d al­ready signed up 95 of them and run out of space.

‘Clubs are the heart­beat of this hobby, and we are hon­oured that so many are choos­ing to join us at this great show­case for the clas­sic car com­mu­nity. The show is fast gain­ing a rep­u­ta­tion for great cars in a great venue and a very friendly at­mos­phere.’

The Manch­ester week­end fea­tures al­most 1000 clas­sics and in­cor­po­rates many of the el­e­ments of Novem­ber’s NEC show. So along­side club dis­plays, the Sport­ing Bears will be sell­ing rides in clas­sic and high-per­for­mance cars. You can also ex­pect hands-on restora­tion demon­stra­tions, an au­to­jum­ble and clas­sic rally ac­tion on a stage set up for the event.

Andy adds: ‘The cars on dis­play will be di­verse – ex­pect rar­i­ties, su­per­cars and plenty of main­stream clas­sics of the sort that fea­ture in every is­sue of Prac­ti­cal Clas­sics. We’re very ex­cited to have one par­tic­u­lar car this year – the unique TVR ‘White Ele­phant’ pro­to­type built as Peter Wheeler’s per­sonal trans­port.’

The show takes place in Eventc­ity, next to the Traf­ford Cen­tre and makes an ideal week­end for the whole fam­ily, so log on to
