  • Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show at the NEC -22nd to 24th March 2019

    We have been given stand at this show, which runs from Friday 22nd March to Sunday 24th March. Do you have a car/van that you would like to show? If you do, please can you post below, send me a message or email. It might be beneficial for those who have not shown a car at the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show to have some idea about what's involved.

    We can take any Maestro or Montego in any condition on the stand. It is preferable if there are some jobs on your car which you can do on the stand to help it 'come alive'. However, any work carried out has to comply with the show's H&S policy, so no welding etc! Please also note that we do not have an electricity supply.

    Vehicles need to be in bought to the NEC sometime between midday and 9.00pm on Thursday 21st March and have to remain on the stand until the show finishes on Sunday 24th March. They cannot be moved during this time. Unfortunately, we are unable to help getting your car to and fro the NEC; you will need to make your own arrangements.

    We are able to offer the owner/driver of the vehicle a free ticket to the show for each day they wish to attend. We are also able to offer free parking for another car in the NEC car park (normally costs an eye watering 16 per day). Also, we can offer another ticket for the Thursday and Sunday to you to give to the person helping you bring your car in on the Thursday and take it away on the Sunday. In return for this, we ask you for the days that you are at the NEC and have a free ticket from the club, that you help man the stand on a rota of one hour on to either two or three hours off. Manning that stand involves chatting to the public/visiting members, making them feel welcome, passing on information about how to join the club (there will be either me or a committee member on the stand, so you can refer questions that you don't know) and generally maintaining a presence. We will provide 500 mls bottles of water as being on the stand can be thirsty work.

    For members who aren't exhibiting a car and would like a free ticket to the show, the above as applies, so in return for the ticket you would help man the stand on a rota basis.

    If you would like to bring your car, please do put it forward. Also, if you have any questions, please shout. Members are welcome to put their cars forward either in this thread, via personal message or via email. Members wishing to volunteer for helping with the stand please do the same. My email is and number is 07929 868284.

    Please note that only members can put their cars forward to be on the stand and receive free tickets to the show. However, you're welcome to join before you put yourself/car forward -

    If you're interested in showing your car/van, please let me know by the end of this weekend (Sunday 3rd February)
