North West Indoor Classic Car Show 2012

THERE’S a great gathering of classics of all shapes and sizes taking place in Greater Manchester this weekend.

Event City, a stone’s throw from the Trafford Centre, is hosting the North West Indoor Classic Car Show, which celebrates the best in motoring from right across the region and a little further afield.

I took a trip early this morning and once I’d peeled myself away from the car park – which was itself filled with everything from original Range Rovers to a slightly out-of-place Ferrari 575 – I was treated to a bonanza of car clubs, businesses, and classics from just about every marque imaginable. Despite it being one of the hottest days of the year so far and it being an indoor show, I didn’t mind the lack of al-fresco attractions one bit.

If you haven’t been and are thinking about going tomorrow (which I’d definitely recommend), among the attractions you can check out are:

  • Snake Pit, a George Barris custom creation powered by no less than six Ford V8s

  • The Ford Escort RS1800 rally car famously campaigned by the late, great Roger Clark

If you can’t make it, by all means check out these Life On Cars pictures taken at the event:
