The feeling of owning an incredible classic vehicle is one thing, but that combined with seeing it on display in front of thousands of appreciative enthusiasts is surely something else? This year in particular, we’re not just looking for classic cars to display, we want to see a collection of anything that falls in to the “classic vehicle” category. Be it a classic tractor, bus, truck – we’re not fussy. This show is about a celebration of anything and everything restoration, and our aim is to bring just that.
The Classic Vehicle Restoration Show is proud to announce that representatives of the Haynes International Motor Museum will deliver an exciting new element for visitors to enjoy. They will be on stage at various intervals on both days with Bradley Mauger the Workshop and Restoration Centre Manager hosting a series of expert discussion panels.
The team will share their considerable experience whilst discussing the finer points of the restoration and preservation of veteran, vintage and classic motor cars. Topics will cover mechanical and body work as well as the project management of ground up restorations. Between them, the Workshop & Restoration Centre team have over 200 years of experience working on daily usable classics to rare Italian exotics.
Tickets can either be purchased in advance or on the day. Visitors save £2 when they buy in advance by clicking here or calling 01507 529529. Lines are open Monday – Friday 8.30am – 7pm, Saturday 8.30am – 12.30pm.
Tickets are sent to you by email and can either be printed or displayed on a mobile phone to the ticket attendant for scanning before entry.
