Halls of memories
One of the highlights of the classic car calendar for me has to be the Classic Motor Show.
It’s a gargantuan show, held in five massive halls of Birmingham’s NEC, that showcases everything you could possible imagine from the hobby/passion/obsession we all love. From microcars to supercars, barn finds to six-figure restorations, this show has the lot.
Not strictly a classic yet – but sure to be in a couple of generation’s time – the new Griffith made a surprising and welcome appearance on the TVR stand.
My favourite car of the show had to be the unconventionally beautiful E-Type of Pipey McGraw, which runs a Mazda rotary engine. It was fun watching the faces of the purists change from horror to amusement as they grew to understood more about this epic build-in-progress.
You can read more about the car in this Speedhunters post.
And if you should need a break from all that gorgeous metal, there’s always the huge autojumble which is guaranteed to rob you of several hours and the entire contents of your wallet.
