We are returning to the London Classic Car Show (15-18 Feb) for the fourth consecutive year with another stunning display of classic cars and some live action too!   It will be the first UK public outing of the 1954 XK 120 SE by Pininfarina, which will be under the spotlight on featured display at our stand accompanied by a mid-restoration 1958 Aston Martin DB MK III.

There are a number of things you can do to protect it: Keep it dry and dust free: Before putting your car into hibernation, we recommend a thorough valet and polish to better protect the paint and components.
