What I do know is this: there are many thousands more classics in Britain that have genuine ‘motor show’ history. How do I know? Because we feature them here on Classic Cars for Sale week in and week out. You’ll see these cherished cars in our sister title Classic Car Weekly in show and event reports too. And isn’t that more reassuring to know? That these classics have recent ‘motor show history’ and are being actively campaigned within the classic movement? It seems more significant than a car’s presence on a static commercial display all those years ago, and a better reflection of how we enthusiasts love and cherish our cars.
