Officially the UK’s fastest growing classic car event and often hailed as the 'friendly classic car show', over 21,000 enthusiasts will be joining us for the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery this year, bringing together all aspects of classic motoring. From barn finds discovered after many years of storage and those project cars that have stalled in an owner’s garage, to restorations just getting back on the road and those pristine marques with gleaming brightwork and proud as punch owners.

2018's show welcomed an out of action Austin A30 with only 24,000 miles on the clock and a 1982 BMW 535i MSport in the Carole Nash Barn Find display. But that's not the only thing to expect. If shiny classics are more your cup of tea, head over to the Pride of Ownership stand where you can watch beautiful and unique privately owned classics battle it out to win the first place title. Classic Car Auctions will host their sale featuring wonderful 'every man' cars, and Wheeler Dealers Mike Brewer and Ant Anstead will hold down the fort on the live stage. Joining the Wheeler Dealer boys will be a host of celebrities, all bringing their A-game! You can read more about the exciting features and faces that joined us in 2018 here.

If you need help and advice from our motoring experts and celebrities, want to buy the tools to do the job yourself or find a specialist restorer who can tackle the work on your behalf you'll be spoilt for choice throughout the show's halls. With cars for sale from both dealers and from Classic Car Auctions, live demonstrations educating even the most expert of restorers at The Workshop, car clubs doing live restoration on their club stands, plus over 1,000 stunning classics on display, it's the classic celebration inspiring families and enthusiasts of all ages. Tickets will soon be on sale to Spring's Best Classic Car show so keep an eye out and be sure join the classic restoration movement from 22 - 24 March at Birmingham's NEC!
