The British Motor Museum in Warwickshire is to host a new exhibition featuring cars from National Geographic’s popular motoring televsion show Car S.O.S.
Opening on 26th May, the Car S.O.S exhibition will run in the museum until the end of February 2019. The exhibition is included within the museum entrance fee.
From an Austin to an Aston Martin
The museum’s new exhibition will feature seven cars that have been rebuilt by the Car S.O.S team including three from the most recent series.
The ‘heart-warming’ car make-over programme airs on National Geographic. Now in its sixth series, the show’s presenters have brought 60 cars back from rusty wrecks to their former glory; everything from family classics to hot hatches and elegant sports cars.
On display will be a pre-war Austin ‘Tilly’ truck which underwent a sympathetic overhaul, a vibrant yellow Lancia Delta Integrale with a touching back story, and a rare AC Aceca sports car along with four others – an MGA, a Volvo P1800, an Aston Martin DB6 and a Ford Capri RS3100.
Graphics and clips from the relevant episodes will run alongside each of the cars detailing the many technical dilemmas the presenters faced to get the cars back to their best. The displays will also give an insight into some of the personal stories and challenges faced by each of the cars' owners.
