Classic Car Show Manchester 2018

15th-16th September 2018

Opening times 10am-5pm both days.


The Footman James Classic Car Show Manchester

Showcasing the best of the UK classic car scene, this is one of the biggest classic car shows in the country!

Packed with hundreds of motoring icons ranging right through the ages; from some of the earliest vehicles ever made, through: pre-war motorcars, 50′s, 60′s, 70′s classics and the ‘future classics’ or ‘youngtimers’ from the 80′s and 90′s.

Cars of all kinds. Famous marques and models; from outrageous supercars, through to popular family ‘daily drivers’ that you and yours fondly remember. British Sports and Saloons, American muscle cars, European thoroughbreds, Sporting greats and more. It’s a motoring nostalgia trip at its finest!

If you like cars (of any era), then you’ll just love this!
