Practical Classics Restoration Show

The UK’s fastest growing Classic Car event, the Practical Classics Restoration Show, is returning to the NEC Birmingham this March.

Running on 23-25th of the month, the show is coming back bigger and better than ever before. This year, they are teaming up with Discovery, to bring together all aspects of classic motoring under one roof.

With 21,000 enthusiasts participating last year, it’s thought that this year’s turn out to the ‘friendly classic car show’ will be record-breaking.

With over 1,000 stunning classics on display, 2018’s show has something in the programme for every classic car lover.

From beauties discovered after years of being in storage, to well-loved project cars and restorations hitting the road for the first time in a while, it’s a haven for any classic fanatic.

Whether you’re inexperienced or a pro-restorer, you’ll be sure to learn something new at ‘The Workshop’. Hosted by the specialised team at Gilbert-Michaelson, there will be expert advice and hands-on, live demonstrations throughout the weekend.

With a focus on developing practical skills and techniques, these first-class insights will help you complete all your restoration tasks once you get back to your home garage.

If you want to find the best tools to complete a job, or if the easiest option is to find a specialist restorer, the Practical Classics Restoration Show is the place where you can find it.

Also featuring on the day will be:

  • Over 150 classic vehicle clubs with their stunning restoration and classic vehicle displays
  • Restoration challenges
  • An auction selling restoration projects
  • Cars for sale from dealers

With all of this and much more to get involved with, it’s sure to be a memorable weekend for classic enthusiasts!

In the meantime, for all of your insurance needs, call us today on 0121 248 9304.
