Country’s top classics compete

121016-cms

THE very best classic cars from across the country, as nominated by classic car clubs in the UK, are set for a final face-off in the Meguiar’s Club Showcase at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, at Birmingham’s NEC from November 11-13.

The 16 cars have been selected by winning top honours at their club’s national events and cover an incredibly diverse range of cars, with a combined value of over £500,000.

The finalists include British favourites from the likes of Mini, Jaguar and MG, alongside Volkswagen’s Beetle and Golf.

The Mini comes courtesy of Andy Nash, whose Traveller won ‘Best of Show’ with the National Mini Club. Fans of V8 engines will be drawn to Howard Guiney’s MGB V8 that won the Concours d’Elegance at the MG Car Club’s MGLive! event at Silverstone this year.

Ford are well represented with two cars making it into the final, with Geoff Cousin’s Ford Anglia and Gary Robert’s 3.0 Capri in the running. Geoff’s Anglia took the title ‘Best of Britain’ at this year’s Hot Rod and Custom Show, while Gary’s Capri is the Gold Winner with Capri Owner’s Club.

They will be joined by a Porsche 911 and Mercedes Benz, with a SAAB 96 representing the SAAB Owners Club. Flying the flag for the USA is a Chevrolet Pick-up, having been selected by American Auto Club International.

“Once again we’ve got an amazing selection of cars from the biggest and best club events from across the UK,” said Tom Clarke from Meguiar’s UK. “The standard of the cars we’ve got coming is going to make choosing the overall winner a difficult task.”

The cars will be judged over the three days of the show with TV’s Wheeler Dealer Mike Brewer revealing the winner on Sunday, November 13.

  1. Which car do you think will come out or top ? Or better yet will it be luxury, sport, or family?

    I am just wondering what will be the top car. Will it be a luxury type or family type or sport or custom? will it be from a European born Manufacturer or British or American? Kind of fun waiting to find out the final outcome. Any one care to bet or give an opinion?
    I like a Jaguar for the top honors But really believe it will be a Rolls Royce or Daimler.
