Ant Anstead and Fuzz Townshend to star at NEC classic

Published 01 October 2015

For The Love of Cars workshop ace Ant Anstead and Car SOS presenter Fuzz Townshend will be appearing at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show at Birmingham’s NEC from Friday-Sunday 13-15 November.

They’ll be involved on the Live Stage with demonstrations, as well as question and answer sessions throughout the weekend. They'll also be on hand for photographs, autograph sessions, and meet and greet opportunities. 

‘It will be good to be back on the stage,’ said Fuzz, ‘I was here last year with Car SOS to hand over one of the cars we had restored, but it will be great to be involved and work with the rest of the guys!’

Fuzz, who is currently filming a new series of Car SOS, will also be showing one of his own cars on the ‘Star Cars’ display at the show.

Ant will be showing the Evanta Barchetta (pictured above) – a limited production 6.2-litre special developed by his company Evanta Cars.

‘I’ve attended the NEC Classic as a visitor loads of times before, but I’ve never been involved like this,’ explains Ant. ‘I can’t wait to be part of the team! As well as being on the Live Stage, I’m also bringing along the Evanta Barchetta, a modern day car inspired by 1950's design. It will be good to see how the classic community reacts to her.

‘I’m also looking forward to having a good old nose around the show and catching up with old friends. Plus, I understand some of the cars featured on For the Love of Cars, such as Walter’s Mk1 Golf Rally car, will be on the club displays.’

Ant will soon appear on BBC1 with former Top Gear presenter James May and Countryfile’s Kate Humble in a two-part broadcast Building Cars Live, filmed live from a BMW factory in Oxford.

Fuzz and Ant can be seen on the Discovery Channel’s Wheeler Dealers Live Stage, alongside hosts Mike Brewer and Edd China. Mike will once again be setting Edd a challenge: can a car be brought back to its former glory during the three-days of the show? There will also be car parades, game shows, more special guests, and the rest of the usual Live Stage antics.

The 2015 Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show will be held from 13-15 November at Birmingham’s NEC with tickets now on sale. For more information on the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show or Classic Motorbike Show as well as all the ticket prices and booking details, visit
