Some of you may have visited the Goblin Works Garage stand at the NEC in November, a few months before we hit your screens with Season One of our show. Well the weekend before last Helen, Ant and I were back in Birmingham to once again visit one of our favourite car show venues for their Classic Car and Restoration Show. The three of us took to the Practical Classics Live Stage with Discovery to discuss all things Goblin and share a few of our favourite moments from the first series.
Thank you to everyone who watched us on stage or who came up to us after to chat about the show. We are so pleased with the positive response and we loved to hear your feedback about the cars and bikes that we built during the six episodes.
For those of you that couldn’t make it to the event, I have popped some photos below of a few of my favourite finds…
This is my third year at this show and every year it seems to be getting bigger and better. My favourite element of this particular event is the fact that everyone brings their cars to work on during the show; there were people in overalls, covered in grease, with their heads under their bonnets and frankly I just wanted to join in – what better way is there to enjoy cars?
One particular car club that we absolutely adored and had a great laugh with was the Gay Classic Car Group, who were even kind enough to help us with a Facebook Live video that you can check out here! We didn’t manage to stop by their stand on Sunday afternoon to check that all their work was finished so we are hoping that no one had to be trailered home! We even had time to meet up with a few of our Discovery / Quest TV pals including Mike Brewer and Ant Anstead from Wheeler Dealers, who had flown in from America, and Paul Cowland from Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars, who is about to start filming Season Two of his fantastic car show with Drew Pritchard.
Thank you to everyone at the NEC for putting on another super show and allowing us to be part of it. We had an absolute blast talking to you about our builds and hearing all your comments about the first series of our show (available on Quest OD).
