Classics gear up for the BMC show

Published 31 May 2017

More than 400 cars are set for the BMC & Leyland Show, which will be held at the British Motor Museum on Sunday, 2 July. Launched five years ago, the show pays tribute to the vehicles produced by the British Motor Corporation (and pre-BMC era), British Leyland, and The Rover Group.

Displays will include passenger cars, plus commercial and military vehicles. Expect to see everything from a Mini and Morris Minor through to the Rover 800s, Montegos and Maestros.

There will be a non Mini Concours event, which visitors can enter on the day. In addition, there will be the traditional Cowley convoy from BMW Mini Cowley and a Longbridge Convoy from MG Longbridge - both arriving at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon, in the morning.

Tom Caren, show manager, said, ‘Aimed at real enthusiasts, this is a great event to celebrate these fantastic iconic vehicles.’

Wondering if Basil Fawlty's Austin 1100 will be there - the one he swore at and beat with a tree branch when it broke down.
