The NEC Classic 2016

On a weekend of remembrance to all those who have fallen fighting to save this magnificent country, millions of classic car enthusiasts left there homes with their destination set to the NEC Classic Car Show in Birmingham. Spread over a three day period and engulfing five halls of the exhibition centre the Classic Car Show was certainly a great way for us to end the year.
Walking through the main doors of the arena we were greeted by this stunning Vauxhall Cresta in a complementing shade of salmon pink.
