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’.
The Lancaster Insurance Pride of Ownership celebrates classic cars and their owners, gathering together those enthusiasts with heartwarming stories behind their vehicle that show they are some of the rarest, most unusual and the most cherished cars in the UK. Cars up to the year 2000 are considered - from pre-war to the noughties. 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.
