PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP FINALISTS PREPARE FOR NEC CLASSIC MOTOR SHOW

PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP FINALISTS PREPARE FOR NEC CLASSIC MOTOR SHOW

Posted by James Howe on 1st November 2021

A superb array of varied classics will be vying for the Lancaster Insurance Pride of Ownership award at this year’s Classic Motor Show, with Discovery+, when it takes place at Birmingham’s NEC from November 12-14

This year’s 20 finalists span a period of almost 50 years. The oldest entrant is a 1953 MG TD owned by Alan East-Jones, closely followed by John Sarrington’s heavily modified 1955 Hillman Husky.

Other British classics include a concours 1964 Mini, a 1978 Austin Maxi imported from Belgium and a 1969 Jaguar E-Type that was bought at the 2017 Show and subsequently restored. You’ll also find a 1962 Bentley S2 Convertible, 1979 Triumph Spitfire, a rare 1982 Lynx Eventer and a 1984 Rover SD1.

Those expecting great sports cars won’t be disappointed either. Fabian Steele’s 1982 Lotus Esprit Turbo is a stunning replica of a Bond film car, while Paul Hart has owned his superb 1998 Ferrari 355 Berlinetta for more than 15 years.

For those that love a Ford, a 1983 Capri 2.0S will be joined by Gideon Mayer’s 1993 Sierra Sapphire Cosworth, which is the last UK-specification right-hand drive car to leave the production line.

With other entrants including a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Convertible, a 1964 Fiat 1500 Cabriolet, a 1970 Opel GT, a 1975 VW Golf Mk1, a 1990 Toyota Celica GT and a 2000 Audi 80 Cabriolet, there really is something for everyone.

The winner will be chosen by visitors voting for their favourite at the show, with each owner campaigning for their cause. The winner will be revealed on the Sunday afternoon.

Tickets to the show can be booked in advance here before midnight on Thursday, November 11. Use the code KELSEYMAG for a £2 discount!
