It is a fact that around 30% of our membership lives outside the UK and for most of them, attending the major shows on the UK Classic Car calendar is unlikely - and making their cars available to exhibit on our club stand would be even less likely.
So, we asked ourselves - what could we do help non UK-based members get involved and also demonstrate to the show-going public that we are in fact a global group? The answer? An International Members' "Brits Abroad" Cool Wall on our stand at the NEC this month, displaying photos of overseas classic Brits! (with thanks to Top Gear for inspiration).
The call went out and numbers of you responded. We are now very proud to unveil the gallery here for those unable to attend the show at the NEC in person. Thanks to all the members who submitted their vehicles for display - I'm sure everyone will agree they did us proud.
Special thanks to Dominic Coleman for preparing the photographs so professionally. The original prints will be displayed on the club stand at the Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show at the NEC Birmingham March 23-25, 2018.
