The Practical Classics Restoration Show at the NEC
The club received an invite from Clarion Events asking us as to whether we would exhibit at the Practical Classics Restoration show at the NEC taking place over the last weekend of March. We agreed to have a two car stand showing David Nancekievill's uprated SP with my ex Metropolitan Police car which was re-built after being left in a barn for a number of years.
Although not as big as the November event there were many more interesting stands to look at notwithstanding the many restoration projects being undertaken. Some of these were being carried out during out during the show. Silverstone Auctions had a sale which included many un-restored vehicles. There was also a live stage with on-going talks from various personalities. For anybody carrying out restoration and needing some parts to be reproduced this was the place to source those elusive manufacturers.
All in all a good show which has doubled in size since its debut last year. Needless to say we have applied to have a stand at next years event
