Classic Car Motorshow

With the internet side of the business booming this year, we decided not to show at this years Classic Car Motorshow, but couldnt resist the urge to go "as enthusiasts" and drool over some fantastic cars.

Leaving early in the Lancia Delta we made good time down the M6 to the NEC, arriving around 9:30am and even by that time the crowds were massing.

Lots to see during the 5 hrs we were there, everything from fantasic traditional classics to modern supercars. Personal favourites included the new VW Corrado, 3 amazing Deloreans and a wonderful Pearl Porsche 356 Speedster.

The biggest disappointment I felt was the new Lancia Delta, which doesnt look anything like the old Delta at all, infact it looks like any other Euro Box but with fancy lights added. What an opportunity missed when you look at what has been done with the the New Mini and Fiat 500.

Some of the best cars at the show can be seen here on our Flickr Tour
