Iconic cars you could have seen in 2017 included a rare MG Y Type, an epically restored BMW M1, a Sahara crossing Citroen 2CV, one of the last racing GXL capris and of course much more.
Hidden treasures will be showcased in the UK's biggest Barn Find display at the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery
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 cars displayed in this year's Carole Nash Barn Find display have 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’.
Showcase your freshly restored pride and joy!

The Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery, are thrilled to work with the Sporting Bears again in 2018. What better way is there to raise money for charity than by taking a ten mile passenger ride in the car of your dreams?
‘Dream Rides’, run by charity organisation The Sporting Bears Motor Club, offers visitors the opportunity to jump into and experience some of the most spectacular cars in the world, and all you have to do is donate to a wonderful cause. In exchange for a charitable donation, you can pick from the cars in the 'Dream Rides' garage which car you would like to take a ten-mile passenger ride in - the size of the donation depends on the car you choose.
