A new poll carried out by Duckhams’ valued partners, The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) indicates that interest by the British public in historic cars, motorcycles commercial, vehicles and buses has grown since this audience were last polled in 2016. Then the survey indicated that just over 8 million people had an interest in historic vehicles, but this new survey shows that number has grown to nearly 10 million.
One of the many exciting exhibits that caught the Duckhams team’s eye at the recent NEC Classic Motor Show was this charming Lambretta racer. The two wheeled Italian masterpiece features Duckhams Clubman Cup livery and even a period Duckhams oil tin form the early 1960s strapped alongside the spare wheel.
At the NEC Classic Motor Show, the Discovery Live Stage was hosted by Mike Brewer and Ant Anstead from the TV show “Wheeler Dealers”. The main feature however was the live rebuild of a 1951 Riley RMA, carried out by the workshop and technical team from Practical Classics Magazine. The challenge was to complete the rebuild in front of the audience on stage, across the three-day event and to drive it off and hand it to the new owner before the close of the show.
