The Museum’s Workshop and Restoration team are preparing to take part in The London Classic Car Show this week which takes place Thursday 14 – Sunday 17 February 2019. The Show is the must attend event for any discerning classic car owner, collector, expert or enthusiast. Set in London’s premier events venue, one of the show’s unique and most crowd pleasing features is The Grand Avenue; an indoor driving runway where classic cars are fired up and driven.
