Many moons ago I used to spend far too much of each March at the NEC. Much as I admire its brutal architecture, my interests were more practical. I say interest but I mean boredom.
I was involved with running a stand for my employer at Glassex, the annual shindig for double glazing salesmen. I’m not proud pf it.
Now I’m doing it again. Not with plastic windows, sadly. Nope, for the first time like, ever, Great Escape Cars is exhibiting at the Practical Classics Restoration Show on 28th and 29th March at the NEC. This time we’ll be there because I really want to be.
Before you check whether the world is still spinning on its axis I need to point out that we’ve only got a small stand. It’s near the door so you’ll find it easy to escape our on-stand sharp-sell patter.
We’re at the show to shamelessly plug our new workshop service for classic car owners. We’ll have an E Type on the stand that’s undergoing restoration.
If you’re at the show feel free to drop in. We’ll be running a competition to win a weekend in an E Type. Or come and chat: Andrew and I will be manning the stand. We’re on stand 300 in Hall 5.
The Practical Classics show, with or without us, promised to be pretty darn good. Loads of suppliers, an autojumble and advice galore. And the chance to win a werkend in an E Type, never forget that.
