The Practical Classic Restoration Show is a big expo show held at the NEC in Birmingham each year. The Practical Classic Restoration magazine approached us to provide a transport solution for an idea they had for the show - a "barn find" section. A barn find is what is known as a vehicle that is been left locked away behind closed doors only to reappear some time later.
PGVM were left with the task of going to collect these barn finds and forgotten relics and put them on display. This proved to be quite challenging as some of the vehicles were over 50 years old and haven't moved in a very long time. The show is held every year at the end of march go check the show out and check out the Barn find section to understand the hard work that has gone on behind the scenes.
