  • My first experience at such a large scale classic event, and I loved every minute of my time at the NEC. My personal highlight was having the opportunity to ride in a 1967 Mustang, a treasured memory that will stay with me for the rest of my life, thanks to the Sporting Bears Dream rides charity. It was also reassuring to see many like minded women who love classic cars as much as I do.
