Restorer of the Year - Final Five

Video stories and Resto Show stardom awaits the winners

The Practical Classics Restorer of the Year, in partnership with Adrian Flux Insurance, is the pre-eminent competition for home restorers, and this year the top five are of extremely high quality. Quality you will be able to see in glorious technicolour when they are videoed and interviewed as part of the process to find an eventual winner of the coveted Golden Spanner. The winner will go forward to meet their public at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show at the NEC on March 24-26, where they will be awarded the Golden Spanner.

The method for selection was rigorous. First the top ten were nominated by Practical Classics readers and customers of Adrian Flux insurance. Then, an expert panel including PC editor Danny Hopkins and Adrian Flux’s Grant Elliot had the unenviable task of choosing a top five from that ten.

The top five, in no particular order, is Steve Brown and his SIII Land Rover, Jonathan Moss and his Porsche 914/6, the Ford Capri Ghia restored by Steve Brandreth, the Triumph 13/60 convertible rebuilt by Mick Clark and the Escort RS2000 revived by Andrew Morgan.

The videos will go live at the beginning of March and can be viewed at the Restorer of the Year section on the Adrian Flux website. Have a look and cast your final vote; you choose the winner. Remember we are always on the hunt for top home restorations. If you have restored a car yourself, or resto-modified it, then please get in touch. Who knows, next year it could be you.
