About

Officially the UK’s fastest growing classic car event, over 19,000 enthusiasts joined us for the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show 2016, bringing together all aspects of classic motoring. From barn finds discovered after many years of storage and those project cars that have stalled in an owner’s garage, to restorations just getting back on the road and those pristine marques with gleaming brightwork and proud as punch owners. If you need help and advice from our motoring experts and celebrities, want to buy the tools to do the job yourself or find a specialist restorer who can tackle the work on your behalf, this is the show for you. With cars for sale from both dealers and a sale from Classic Car Auctions, live demonstrations, and over 800 cars on display, don’t miss the classic motoring scene’s season opener on 31 March - 2 April 2017!

Barn Finds

Hidden treasures are to appear in the UK's biggest barn find display at the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show 2017!

How do you define ‘Barn Find’? To some, it has to be a vehicle covered in four decades worth of dust but to others, it is a car that has lain dormant for many years.  The 25 cars displayed in this year’s Barn Find display had been unearthed from garages, sheds, yards and even the bottom of the garden that have been rescued by passionate enthusiasts.  Some remain in the same condition as the day they went into storage while others would be better to ‘rust in peace’. 

Want to display your 'Barn Find'? Please send two images and a description of the car to our features director Andrea Seed on andrea@poppyseedmedia.co.uk. Contact Andrea today as spaces in the Barn Find display are limited.
