The second RIAC National Classic Car Show held in March 2014 was a tremendous success with almost 12,500 classic car enthusiasts from all parts of Ireland in attendance.
93% of the visitors surveyed rated the quality of cars on display as good or excellent, while 97% of commercial exhibitors said their participation had been worthwhile or very worthwhile – one of the best results of any exhibition in recent years.
Almost 250 classic cars were displayed from leading Irish Classic Car Clubs and private collections – highlights included the ‘Family Cars of the 1950s and 60s’ feature, Classic Supercars, a special Lotus feature, a recreation of the pit area of the Irish International Grand Prix from 1929-31 and a Rolls-Royce feature.
This was easily the most spectacular display of quality vehicles ever seen in Ireland and images of many of them can be seen on our Facebook page.
But the Show was about much more than the cars on display. Visitors had the opportunity to talk to experts on car restoration, find tools and accessories, restoration products, memorabilia, art and collectables. A very welcome addition to the 2014 Show was an Autojumble that was a center of activity throughout the Show.
