Microcars at the NEC

The NMCR regularly organises a display of Microcars at the Classic Motor Show,
held in November each year at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.

The 2014 Show
- gosh, we were busy!

This was the 31st Classic Motor Show and again occupied eleven halls of the NEC.

Our stand this time was a long strip along one wall of Hall 12, near to the stands of the Isetta, Reliant and Heinkel Trojan Clubs, giving visitors a really good selection of interesting micro (and other) cars.

We had lots of space between the cars this year, and that seemed to make it much easier for visitors to step out of the crowd and come up to ask questions.

Certainly, there was huge interest, whether in the technical novelty, the retro designs, or the memories which were brought back to people, of their dad, or uncle, or "bloke down the road" who "had one of these"!

Once again, we were well supported, and send our thanks to:
  •  all those who lent their vehicles for display, and brought them along to the NEC
  •  everyone who helped out manning the stand for the three days, and who answered so many questions from visitors
  •  all the microcar clubs who gave us magazines and literature to hand out

We had a great time, and aim to be back again next year.  Look out for the dates on:


Starring on our display, ahead of the 2015 National Microcar Rally (which  is being organised by the Frisky Register) was the Frisky Sport, brought along by Malcolm Dudley.

We're hoping that this car will join a record number of Friskies at the 2015 Rally, along with all the other kinds of microcar which will be there.

The Cars on the Stand
(With a big 'thank you' to all those whose pictures we're showing here)

This year we had carefully chosen microcars which were "micro" enough to fit "end on" onto our long, but narrow, stand.  From right to left along the stand, each with its sign board, we had:

1962 Scootacar Mk 1

1951 Bond Minicar

1958 Messerschmitt Tiger

1966 Peel Trident

1964 Peel 50

1957 Brutsch Mopetta

1957 Frisky Sport

Lambretta Mink
