About Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show, with Discovery:
Hailed the ‘friendliest of car shows’, the show attracts over 28,000 visitors across 3 days, and brings together all aspects of classic motoring. From live restoration projects to pristine classics, walking through the halls definitely rekindles memories for visitors. It's a weekend all about rusty barn finds, concourse quality classics and everything in between.
The heart and soul of the classic car community is without doubt car clubs, and the same goes for the show. 2019 saw over 170 car clubs grace the halls of the NEC, and visitors always have the opportunity to watch what it takes to keep our beloved classics running with all kinds of live restoration demonstrations taking place throughout the weekend.
