Once again there will be a mouth-watering array of classic cars on display at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show which will take place from November 13 - 15 at Birmingham's NEC. Whether you’ve a passion for traditional British classics, vintage motors, historic motorsport, European exotica, American muscle or prefer the more modern retro classics, you won't be disappointed!
Visitors will also be able to take a nostalgic trip down memory lane and enjoy the cars from years gone by. Applying the old adage ‘respect your elders’ and with some of the earliest cars engineered on display in the exhibition they can do just that. A ‘must-see’ for any enthusiast of the world’s pioneering vehicles, the various displays will highlight how far the motoring world has come since the industry’s early days.
The sight of a classic car travelling elegantly along a country road is a sight to brighten any enthusiast’s day and thanks to the dedication and commitment of car clubs around the country it’s a sight that will remain in the present rather than past. The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show is often seen by clubs as the 'season finale', after a year spent attending events up and down the country, and they celebrate by exhibiting their most prestigious and cherished vehicles for visitors to enjoy. Car clubs are the lifeblood of the classic car community and play a crucial role in ensuring the promotion of the historic and classic car movement.
Prominent as ever in Hall 2 at the NEC will be the Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club, Jaguar Drivers' Club, Jaguar XJS Club and the Daimler and Lanchester Owners Club. Their stands will be clustered around a large Jaguar Heritage stand, operated by the JLR Heritage team which will once again be showcasing its various heritage related business activities.
The Jaguar Heritage Trust will have three cars from its collection on display. Two interesting Daimlers, a 1973 Daimler Double Six once used by Sir William Lyons and a 2002 Daimer Super V8 which was a royal relief car and also the last X308 produced, will be displayed on the Daimler and Lanchester Owners Club stand. In addition, a 1987 Jaguar XJS V12 Cabriolet that was originally used by Princess Diana will be featured on the XJS Club stand. The three cars are pictured below:
For Jaguar and Daimler enthusiasts, this end of season show will be an event not to miss!
