FESTIVE FUN AT SEVENS AND CLASSICS

 

PICTURES TO COME

I was down at Sevens and Classics’ latest open day during the festive period. Held, as usual at their showroom located within the Brands Hatch complex and this one was arguably the busiest yet.

The company was set-up by former Caterham Cars men, Andy Noble and Tim Ward in 2012 and understandably they have a bit of a specialisation with all things Lotus and Caterham Seven and always have specially selected finest examples of the breed available.

The company also deals in classic British sportscars, Classic Minis and generally interesting cars as well as desirable motorbikes.
