WE made a quick visit to the Classic Motor Show at the NEC on Friday to have a look at some classics and fit in a few meetings. This is a big car show and a main event on the petrol head calendar, it’s spread out over 5 halls so we could have done with another day to have a closer look at the stalls and re-visit some of the vehicles. Friday and Sunday seem to be the best days to go, we would have struggled to get any photos on Saturday because it’s the busiest day.

There were some really good quality classics on show, some slightly questionable custom Land Rovers (why can nobody get this right?!) and the odd rat rod – nothing spectacular custom-wise but some fantastic builds all the same. We’ll try to show there at some point in the future, jolly things up a bit with some of our restomod action, I think they need some rock ‘n’ roll thrown into the equation. Anyway here were our favourites from the show… (we were of course representing S&PG by wearing our t-shirts – which you should all be doing as well by the way)…
