Hinckley

Postby Mikefido » Thu Sep 21, 2017 7:28 pm

Anyone going to the Hinckley Classic Car Show this Sunday?

Got my XJ40 booked in and I'll be going with a mate (but he'll be in his S Type).
Can't find a flyer so here's a discription:-

More than 500 Classic vehicle owners from all over the Midlands fill Hinckley Town Centre on an autumnal Sunday to show off their beautiful and carefully restored machines to a crowd of some 17,000.
Organised by the Hinckley BID - the 7th annual Hinckley Classic Motor Show will again comprise cars, vans, motorbikes and scooters.
Coventry Transport Museum will be there with a selection of vehicles from the world famous collection.
Free admission

It was a hell of a good day (altough some very 'modern' 'classsics' weedled there way in - Tuned Ford Focus - that's not a classic yet!).
Mine was the only 40 there but I did get to park with the lesser jags!

Loads on Mini's (real ones!) and MGB's so plenty to look at!
Took hundreds of photos - here's a few ...

I was there, saw your 40, but you were not around. Surprised not more 40's. I did not take mine as could only stay for an hour or so. However brilliant show loads of cars and good weather. Chris

I'll certainly aim to go next year ... and the car should look nicer as it's now in to get the roof, bonnet, wing and wheel arches re-sprayed (as we ran out of time to get it ready for this years one!) :D

In order to get a good turn out to any show, forward planning is key. So put up a new post in the meet section advertising it, with all the details (location, date, arrival time) and some pics.Then people have time to put in in their diaries.

Will do .. If we're going to arrive in 'convoy' and be able to park up together we'll have to meet somewhere else first then drive in together.
I can then warn them if there's a lot of interest! ;)
