Car S.O.S Exhibition

Now open!

Come and see our brand new exhibition featuring cars from National Geographic's popular motoring TV show Car S.O.S.   

The exhibition features seven of the sixty cars that have been rebuilt by Car S.O.S presenters Fuzz Townshend and Tim Shaw; everything from family classics to hot hatches and elegant sports cars. 

How the exhibition came about...

The Car S.O.S team are over the moon that the exhibition is happening – we get so many requests from viewers asking where they can see our cars so this really is a perfect opportunity. The fact that the exhibition is at the British Motor Museum makes perfect sense – having been at the venue for two of our reveals – we have built up a good relationship with the team there and know the cars are going to look amazing. Speaking on behalf of Tim, Fuzz, the workshop crew and of course the owners who have generously lent their cars, we all really hope the exhibition is going to be a huge success.

The cars on display

The exhibition includes a pre-war Austin 'Tilly' truck which underwent a sympathetic overhaul, a vibrant yellow Lancia Delta Intergrale with a touching back story and rare AC Aceca sports car along with four others - an MGA, Volvo P1800, Aston Martin DB6 and a Ford Capri 3100.
