Lancaster Insurance Pride of Ownership

The Lancaster Insurance Pride of Ownership celebrates classic cars and their owners, gathering together those enthusiasts with heart-warming stories behind their vehicle that show they are some of the rarest, most unusual and most cherished cars in the UK. Cars up to the year 2000 are considered. The standard of the car is obviously important, but the passion of the owner and the journey the car has gone on is equally, if not more important.

Andrew Evanson, Senior Operations Manager at Lancaster Insurance, said: “The Pride of Ownership display is a must-see for anyone visiting the show, the standard of cars is simply outstanding! As always there’s a great mix of marques and years being celebrated which truly means there is something for everyone – I can’t wait to see them all and hear the stories behind them.”

With 20 cars vying for votes, the choice was not easy with a stunning mix of marques spanning 70 years of motoring. Some fresh restorations while others are daily drivers, but all are driven rather than showroom ornaments.
