ISSUE 256: It’s now ten days since the curtain came down on the last day of this year’s Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show and my still aching feet are reminding me of all the walking I did around one of the largest collections of classic and historic vehicles ever assembled at Birmingham’s NEC. I’ve no idea how many miles I covered during my two days at the Show, but it must have been into the double figures by the time I’d crawled back to the car park on Sunday evening. The NEC is an impressive venue and this year’s Show filled 11 of its massive adjoining halls. Next year things are expected to get even bigger at Birmingham as the organisers are already planning to enlarge the Show for 2015, so as to be able fit in even more club stands. As well as featuring our bumper NEC report, which even describes how a stand is erected at the event, this week’s issue also looks at the best of Aston Martin V8-powered cars, while the editorial team argue the toss over their choice of what they consider to be the best cars ever built in Birmingham. The final choice is an interesting selection and one that’s bound to get our mailbag bulging with all the favourites we should have chosen.
