Practical Classics (UK) - - CLASSIC WORLD -

Clas­sic clubs, deal­ers and en­thu­si­asts have be­gun prepa­ra­tions for the 2018 Lan­caster In­sur­ance Clas­sic Mo­tor Show with Dis­cov­ery, which is again be­ing held at the NEC in Birm­ing­ham.

With 2500 clas­sic cars and mo­tor­bikes due at the NEC on Novem­ber 9-11, cov­er­ing a space the size of twelve football pitches, the theme for this year’s show is ‘Built to last’.

In tune and on topic will be the live restora­tion of PC edi­tor Danny Hop­kins’ Ri­ley RMA, it­self a sur­vivor hav­ing been pre­served by pre­vi­ous owner Ron James. ‘It was def­i­nitely built to last and thanks to Ron and his late fa­ther, the car is nearly ready to be brought back to the road once again,’ said Danny. ‘We’ll be re­build­ing the car live on stage at the NEC Clas­sic Mo­tor Show in Novem­ber and I’m hop­ing Ron will be able to at­tend the event and do us the hon­our of start­ing it for the first time.’

Theo and Danny will be work­ing on the Ri­ley.
