On Sunday our 1st April Coffee and Classics gathering took place at The Classic Motor Hub – the first of 2018. After much anticipation we are delighted to report that it was considered by most to be a huge success. In excess of 280 cars registered to attend, which meant that it was a very busy start to the day to fit all the cars and motorcycles in, but once most visitors had made it through the event traffic, they were delighted with what we had on show.
The range of vehicles in attendance was varied and eclectic, from early pre-war Bugatti, Fords and Morris through to modern Ferrari, Lotus, Aston Martin and Porsches. There was truly something for everyone in attendance, in addition to the superb cars on sale through Cotswold Collectors Cars and the on-site private collection that was opened up for public viewing.
As well Martin Lee’s Car Profile Art and some other familiar faces, we were delighted to welcome a number of new supporters to The Hub for this year’s April Coffee and Classics, including Footman James and Revive Auto Apothecary.
Footman James offers superb deals on motoring insurance, and are attending The Hub at each of the Coffee and Classics events throughout the year with a free classic car valuation service. Revive is offering a brand new range of car detailing products that are currently exclusively available in The Classic Motor Hub and at every Coffee and Classics event this year. They’ve produced a new range of detailing products that are produced locally and designed especially for classic and prestige vehicles in conjunction with chemists and highly-respected detailers. If you’d like to know more about their products, be sure to talk to them at our next event.
Over the winter we were very busy updating various aspects of the site, including our own kitchen, which is being run by Eat Wild at each of our events throughout the year to offer superb snacks, bacon rolls and other tasty treats.
We also opened our brand new shop, which was supported by Suixtil and Revive. The shop will be open at each of our motoring events and has a wide array of products on sale, including our own merchandise (most of which you can also purchase via the online store).
Lastly, we opened a new area in the Cotswold Collectors Cars hangar – a public viewing gallery. This allows visitors a comfortable location in which to discus their cars, whilst offering a superb birds-eye view of the cars in the showroom. If you didn’t find it this time, be sure to come and take a look at our next event.
Thanks again to everyone who attended – The Classic Motor Hub wouldn’t be able to hold such superb events without a strong local community of car enthusiasts. We’d also like to extend our thanks to all those who made the event possible, including the miniature army of parking attendants and all the staff at The Hub who gave up their Easter Sunday to be at work!
