Clubs Asked ‘What’s The Story at the Footman James Classic Motor Show

Filed under: Classic News,Shows |
Classic Motor ShowClassic motoring clubs exhibiting at this year’s Footman James Classic Motor Show are being asked 'What’s the story?' behind their favourite cars as this year's show theme. Held at Birmingham’s NEC from Friday 16th to Sunday 18th November, the organisers want to focus on the brilliant stories that often accompany the amazing vehicles on display. Show Manager Andy Rouse explains: “Every year we have an incredible array of cars and motorcycles at the show. All of them have a unique (and often hidden) tale to tell, for example; some have been in families for generations, some maybe discovered in bizarre circumstances, some having taken part in significant events in history and some will have been on some truly astonishing journeys." “Some of the vehicles were also part of bigger stories involving the manufacturers; maybe they were the model that broke the mould, or resulted in massive success or failure? Others are integral to storytelling itself, becoming recognised as being in a film or television programme, or maybe having belonged to a famous face for a while? We encourage the clubs and owners to interpret the theme in their own way to best tell their cars’ stories to our show visitors”. Anybody can get in on the story telling too, by sending their motoring stories with a picture of the vehicle to the organisers for their storyboards. Enthusiasts are being invited to post their stories and pictures on the show’s facebook page Some of the best stories and vehicles may be invited to exhibit at the show, or make anappearance on the live stage with Wheeler Dealers’ Mike Brewer and Edd China over the three days of the event! Ticket prices range from £18.50 when purchased in advance, with two and three day passes also available. For more information on the Footman James Classic Motor Show or Classic Motorbike Show, visit
