Duchy Capri & Classic Ford Club :: A Club Based in the Duchy of Cornwall for the Ford Capri & Classic Fords

Classic Motor Show at the NEC Birmingham – November 15th 2013

Written by: Mark Roberts

Now in its 30th year and spanning 11 halls with 1,500 Classic Cars, this was the biggest show yet.

The Live Stage was hosted by Mike Brewer and Edd China and featured special guests Sir Stirling Moss and David Soul of (Starsky & Hutch) David was also on the Lancaster Insurance stand with the iconic Ford Gran Torino.

With it being the 40th anniversary of the Capri RS3100, there was a number on display on many of the Capri stands. Walking around the show there was some great Fords on display including beige RS2000 with the original stickers still on the tyres, Jim Clark’s Lotus Cortina Road Car and a beautifully restored Mk1 Transit.

We managed to see most of the show, but had to breeze through some of it by 5.00pm. Hopefully we will try and make it a 2 day trip next year.

Members who attended:

Saturday: Bernie, Mark, John and Lewis.

Sunday: Sabrina, Steve and Craig.
