Top 5: Pride of Ownership cars at the NEC Classic Motor Show
The first five entries to be confirmed in the Lancaster Insurance Pride of Ownership display have been revealed. Held as part of the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show at Birmingham’s NEC from Friday 11th to Sunday 13th November, the overall winner will be decided by visitors to the season finale.
Richard Morley, Operations Director at Lancaster Insurance, said, 'We’re proud to be supporting an area which champions people showcasing their pride and joy and the story behind it. These five are indicative of the quality of the entries we’ve received and we’ve got some tough decisions ahead, but I have no doubt that it will be an outstanding display.'
The display will see 15-20 classics included so there is still time to enter your pride and joy into the competition. To enter, just email your contact details along with the year, make and model of your vehicle, a brief history of the car, and two images to firstname.lastname@example.org. Entries close on 30 September.
1973 Alpine Renault A110
First to be confirmed is a 1973 Alpine Renault A110 owned by David Holden from Sheffield, which was previously been used as a show car until David realised he liked driving it more than showing it!
'After numerous shows, it occurred to me that the joy was in the driving rather than the polishing just for show, and so I took to the hills,” explains David. “I have now completed more than 30 hill climb and sprint events, often as a class winner against more modern cars. I drive it to and from every event as well. It’s a fantastic little car.'
