CLASSIC MOTOR CARS 25TH BIRTHDAY DRAWS A UNIQUE GATHERING OF HISTORIC CARS TO SHROPSHIRE 

OKV1 the Le Mans 2nd place D-Type from 1954 and 1 VHP the very first right hand drive production Jaguar E-Type Fixed Head Coupe will both be running at CMC 25.

Arguably the most eclectic and distinguished line up of historically significant motor cars to be seen outside of London or Goodwood have been drawn to Classic Motor Cars of Bridgnorth for their 25th Birthday party on Saturday 18th August.
Amongst a simply mouth-watering assembly of Jaguars are absolutely the best examples of marques and models that should give every true petrol head no excuse not to attend.
Leading the Jaguar contingent will be OKV1 – the second D-Type sports racing car made and a factory car with a glorious competition history at Le Mans and Reims. Alongside this race hardened warrior will be the unique and world-famous Lindner Nocker Factory Light Weight E-Type coupe, the recent beneficiary of a hugely exacting and multi-award-winning restorations programme at CMC themselves.
Away from the racing track, other hugely significant Jaguars attending will include the very oldest surviving E-Type – 9600 HP – this was a prototype car that went to the Geneva Motor show to launch the E-Type and was then part of the press fleet. Another press car is the XK120 Fixed Head Coupe, registered MPH 682, which featured in may press reports and photographs at the start of the legendary XK era. Also dating to this time is the “one of a kind” Pininfarina XK120 fixed head, fresh from its class winning success at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Aside from the astonishing collection of Jaguars gathered together on the 18th, CMC has also curated some wonderful examples of other marques. These will star the Squire four-seat tourer. Whilst Squires are amongst the rarest of British Sports Cars, a four-seater is the rarest of the rare. It will be joined by a fabulous Lancia Aurelia B20 coupe, nearing the end of its own restoration journey in the specialised hands of CMC. It will rub shoulders with an Austin Seven Swallow, a delightful coach built version of the legendary “Austin Baby” of the inter-war years.
Add to the above selection, at least one example of every Jaguar model you can think of and a plethora of visiting classics; trade stands; street food; a micro-brewery and live music and surely CMC on Saturday 18th just has to be THE place to be?
