Birmingham’s NEC once again managed to gather an impressive collection of classics and not-so-classic old cars for its annual Classic Motor Show – the largest event of its type in the UK. The queues were long, the parking delayed, and the burgers overpriced, but the cars we all went to look at were more than worth the effort – and once again the cars and clubs were grouped relationally; so the Rovers were near the Austins, and the Vauxhalls, the Opels. Just as it should be.
Enjoy the gallery – we’ll have a full report tomorrow evening, but for now guess what the AROnline car of the show was – it’s pictured in the gallery!
