This year, for the first time, our club displayed at one of the major indoor classic car shows held annually. The Manchester Classic Car Show, sponsored by Footman James, was held at Event City, Trafford Park, Manchester on Saturday and Sunday the 15th/16th of September.
We were given a pitch near the centre of the largest hall and after a few calculations we decided that we could fit 7 of our cars into the
allotted space. As a result our display consisted of 2 x Mini Coopers, 1 x Jaguar Mk2, 1 x Jaguar XJ8, 1 x Renault 5, 1 x Ford Escort RS2000 and 1 x MG RV8.
No major problems were encountered with all cars arriving safely and in position well before the deadline. A selection of pictures from the
show can be seen on the club’s Facebook page.
Much interest was shown in our cars during the show by both the visiting public and fellow exhibitors especially in the 2 Mini Coopers. A few membership enquiries will hopefully add to our numbers. All in all a successful and enjoyable event.
