First Finalists in Spring Pride Revealed

First Finalists in Spring Pride Revealed image

The first finalists who will be looking to win the hearts and votes of visitors in the Lancaster Insurance Pride of Ownership competition have been confirmed.

Amongst this fantastic mix of cars is a 1983 Mercedes Benz W12 3 (which was bought as a non-runner with no MoT and in need of a full restoration in 2010), and a 1990 Peugeot 205 GTi which has only taken a year as owner, James, has done all the work himself!

Joining them is Richard Wilson's pride and joy, 'Daisy Mae', a 1989 MG Metro bought in 2009. Spending the next five years restoring the car to a pristine condition, he sold her in 2016 and instantly regretted it. Richard spend the next 18 months trying to convince the owner to sell her back - which they eventually did!

With twenty cars in total, visitors will have a tough choice when it comes to picking a winner.
