Classic Car Show NEC

We had a fantastic time at the Classic Car Show which took place at the NEC from Friday 10th – Sunday 12th November. DMG were located at the entrance to Hall 5 and we hope that many of you were able to attend the event and visit us.

The event was a great success and we had the chance to meet many of our customers and classic car enthusiasts. Here are just some of the many highlights from the event.

Thank you to our sales team who did a great job in representing DMG at the event. Paul Grainger and John Erra took part in the Practical Classics Restoration Challenge on the Live Stage and did a great job! DMG partnered with Practical Classics providing parts to restore a replica of Mr.Bean’s famous Mini and at the end of the event the Mini was successfully completed!

Our Classic Cars – Mike Lennon

β€˜Our Classic Cars’ focuses on the classic cars owned and loved by our very own DMG employees!

In our second feature we focus on Mike Lennon who works in our Sales Department. He is the proud owner of a Morris Minor.

Mike bought his Morris Minor in 1988 when the Morris Minor Centre was located in Birmingham City Centre in the Jewellery Quarter.Β Around 1994, the new Mini and Beetle were launched, and so, not to be upstaged, Mike decided to redesign the front of the car.Β The bonnet was lowered and the front headlights and wings were sloped. The idea was purely cosmetic but the result was increased driving efficiency.

MM

When first acquired the Morris Minor had only done 24,000 miles and is now at 97,000 miles over the course of 30 years.Β Currently the upgrades include : 1275 Engine, 5-speed Ford Gearbox, front and rear telescopic shock absorbers, 9 gallon fuel tank and many more!

Our Classic Cars!

‘Our Classic Cars’ focuses on the classic cars owned and loved by our very own DMG employees!

In our first feature we focus on Iwan Jones who works in our Sales Department. He is the very proud owner of both an MG TF and an MG Midget.

Iwan bought his stunning MG TF just a couple of months ago. The car was in great condition when he purchased it and it only needed a few trim parts.
The car is #70 of 500 made and 1 of 50 in the rare Vibrant Orange colour. The colour was on licence from Ford for only 50 cars.

Iwan purchased his gorgeous MG Midget for his 18th birthday, He was on holiday in Suffolk when he bought it and drove it home at the end of the week!
The car is the very last of the 1968 style cars registered in 1969 and is still the original car with no modifications.
