Planning to visit the Classic Motor Show at the NEC from 9-11 November? Don’t miss our stand in Hall 5. We’re celebrating our 30th anniversary in style, with several vehicles on display.
First is a car launched in 1988, the iconic BMW Z1. We’ll also have a Rolls-royce Silver Ghost and a Stanley steam car. Fresh from a complete restoration we have a 1931 AEC Regent double-decker bus that was sold new to the City of Birmingham Corporation.
For something totally different, look out for our JCB Type 1 Grave Digger and our Aveling Barford Scout Carrier – hopefully, NEC security permitting, complete with armaments. Sent to north Africa for use by the British Army, it still sports a bullet hole sustained during enemy action. It then found its way to Australia in March 1943.
We also have a feature on Abingdon King Dick, the only British spanner manufacturer, and Kerry Abingdon motorcycles; the author of The Quest for King Dick will be signing books, too.
Younger enthusiasts will want to see the Lego traction engine, part of the Lego Ideas concept, and visitors will be able to vote to secure its production. To complete our display, we will have a Bedford CA van from the Vauxhall Heritage fleet. Do come and say hello!
BMW’S Z1 roadster made its debut in 1988 – the same year as the FBHVC
