For classic car fans the onset of Autumn is a sad time of year as most of us prepare for the eventuality that is putting our pride and joy to bed for the winter. The classic car season may indeed be drawing to a close but there are still quite a few events taking place to keep us enthusiasts occupied. This weekend sees the opening of the brand new Classic and Sports Car Magazines “The London Show” which is kicking off at Alexandra Palace this Friday and runs until Sunday. There promises to be a great selection of classics on show with a few car world celebrities including Ross Brawn and Ant Anstead. They will also be unveiling the Best British Car Ever. It will be interesting to see which one that will be. We think it will be the Jaguar E-Type. We are popping along to the show on Friday so stay tuned for some photos as we’ll be posting some after the show.
Also taking place this Saturday in the capital is the Regent Street Motor Show. We attended the show last year and there was a fascinating selection of vintage cars on show, as this event is the warm up for the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, which is taking place on Sunday. Highlights for this year include Bond’s new Aston Martin DB10 from the new film Spectre and a Caterham Car that will be built from scratch on the day. Last year we got the chance to meet Wayne Carini from the TV show Chasing Classic Cars and we also bumped into Edd China from Wheeler Dealers. We’re popping along again this Saturday so it will be interesting to see if we will bump into any more TV car celebrities.
After all that we might go and watch the start of the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run on Sunday morning. Its a bit of any early start that one but we’ll see if we can make it. So its looking like a busy weekend all round!
Below are some photos from last years Regent Street Motor Show.
