Classic Motor Show - NEC

22nd November 2010
Mr Danby's not at his greatest first thing in the morning's but we did stumble through a few token attempts at chat on the way to the NEC.

Media sign-on was utterly painless and we were in the halls by 9.15. This was a great result as we had the place to ourselves before the hordes arrived to get in the background (and foreground) of every shot we took.

The Classic Motor show's a real belting collection of cars. There are motors there that I've not seen for years. The owners clubs are a delight. Can't remember the last time I saw a Humber Hawk or a Singer Vogue let alone stands full of them all in top condition. The Ford stand was wall to wall Escorts and Cortinas as well as Corsairs, Granadas and Capris.

The MPH show was choc-full of the more modern, exotic machinery: cars with that certain drool factor. Talking of which, the promo girls were as much fun as ever. Roll on January and Autosport International.
