Classic Motor Show: NEC, Birmingham. The biggest and best classic car show in the UK. Joining together classic car enthusiasts from all over the UK and beyond, the 2019 classic car show will grace the halls of Birmingham’s NEC once again. Covering over one million square feet – that’s about 18 football pitches – more than 3000 iconic classic and vintage cars plus motorbikes were showcased last year. The Classic Motor Show bought together the UK’s leading classic car dealers who offered a wealth of marques to suit all needs and pockets. A diverse mix of rare and loved motors spanning more than 100 years were shared with us by the dedicated members of 300 clubs, making this year’s show the WORLD’s largest gathering of classic vehicle clubs. Celebrating ‘the best of the best’ from the UK classic car club scene, last year’s grand final of the Meguiar’s Club Showcase was not to be missed, with a 1964 Volkswagen Type 1 Beetle winning the trophy! The UK’s biggest indoor Autojumble was a haven of car parts and spares for anyone working on their vehicle, as well as 500 specialist automotive exhibitors and traders offering a mix of products and services. Those that joined were immersed in stunning classics, fantastic features, one of the most high-profile classic car auctions with Silverstone Auctions, all in the presence of motoring  celebrities including The Wheeler Dealers and many more. It was a truly magnificent season finale of the motoring calendar which welcomed 71,000 passionate motoring enthusiasts!
