Classic Car Loan Project borrowers to be announced at PC Show

 
Visitors to this year’s Practical Classics Classic Car & Restoration Show will be the first to find out who’s bagged a classic through the 2019 Classic Car Loan Project.

 
The names of those who have been selected to receive a classic car on loan for a year will be announced by project organiser Bob Wilkinson on the Live Stage at the show at 2pm on Sunday. Peter James Insurance has supported the project since its launch, and is contributing to the insurance for each of this year’s loan cars.
 
Our very own Phil Beck will be on the Live Stage alongside Bob to talk about the insurance for the project.
 
Each of the loan cars, generously offered into the project by private owners and car clubs, will be in the care of a younger enthusiast for the year.
 
 
 
 
 
The cars will be officially handed over in April at a special event at The British Motor Museum where a driving area has been set aside for the initial driving experience before the new drivers take to the open road. This year’s loan cars are:
1929 Ford Model A Phaeton
1933 Austin 7 Saloon
1934 Morgan Super Sports
1949 Alvis TA
1954 Ford Popular
1956 Ford Anglia
1960 Vauxhall Victor
1968 Morris Minor Traveller
1969 Morris Minor Saloon
1983 Austin Maestro
1988 Volvo 240 Estate
PLUS - 3 more cars to follow later in the year
Peter James Insurance is contributing to the insurance for each loan car, with policies protecting both owner and new driver in a specially prepared arrangement.
 
Chery Maybury, Director at PJI, said: “Encouraging newcomers to the classic vehicle community is so important and that’s why we are delighted to support this growing project. We are thoroughly looking forward to hearing the stories from this round of loan car ‘borrowers’ throughout the year.”
 
Applicants must have access to garage facilities and preferably be over 25 years of age. The individual vehicle owners or the relevant club will then select the borrower, who will have the vehicle for either six months or one year by negotiation. Applications must be received by March 7th.
 
Project manager Bob Wilkinson said:
“I am looking forward to seeing all our planning come to fruition when the cars are handed over to these new enthusiasts. Individual owners and clubs have given magnificent support to the project by firstly offering their cars and then preparing them ready to be used and enjoyed over the year. I am also grateful to have massive support from Peter James Insurance, which increases confidence for all involved in the project.”
 
Other sponsors are Duckham’s Oils and Longstone Tyres who are supplying consumer items for each car.
