You’ll find a very wide range of features at the show. Of course, the true draw of this show is the range of classic cars that you’ll be able to enjoy. You’ll find roughly 2,500 classic beauties on offer that range from daily drivers to race cars.
A number of classic car clubs will be on hand, as well. This show marks the culmination of the clubs’ touring and show year, and you can expect them to bring out their most impressive vehicles for the event.
If you’re interested in finding a classic car for sale, this show might be the place to do it. There will be thousands of classics on offer in a range of conditions and at all different price points. Whether you have a little to spend or you’re looking to spend your life savings, you’ll discover a car here that fits your tastes and budget. Speaking of classic cars for sale, don’t miss the Silverstone Auctions while you’re at the show. Even if you don’t intend to bid, it’s well worth it just to see the cars.
The Discovery Live Stage (sponsored by the Discovery Channel) will be one aspect that you don’t want to miss. You’ll see Mike Brewer, Ant Anstead, and others from the Wheeler Dealers. Events range from guest speakers to assembling cars from spare parts right on stage.
If you want to get hands-on with restoration but aren’t sure where to start, you can take part in a workshop and learn first-hand how to rebuild that classic beauty sitting in your garage. The autojumble is a great option for anyone who wants to pick up spare parts, and the trade stands give you access to additional buying choices.
If you want to get behind the wheel of a classic car, you’ll get your chance at the HERO Arrive and Drive event. There will also be the reveal of the Classic American Car of the Year, which highlights the best-maintained American classic car found in the UK.
As you can see, there’s a great deal on offer at the 2019 Lancaster Classic Motor Show. Make sure you’ve got tickets ahead of time so you don’t miss out.
