BEAULIEU, UNITED KINGDOM – Feb 18, 2013: Beaulieu’s popular Spring Autojumble, now in its 20th year, takes place on the 18th & 19th May in the grounds of the world-famous Beaulieu attraction.

Events Manager Judith Maddox said: “This year’s show will be celebrating a number of significant motoring anniversaries including the Morris centenary and 50 years of the Hillman Imp as well as displays by a number of classic car clubs.

“We are also delighted to welcome Practical Classics as the new media partner for both the Spring and International Autojumbles. Visitors to the show will be able to meet the PC team in the Restoration Theatre where they will be tinkering with engines, giving demonstrations and holding a daily motoring themed Pub Quiz.”

The 1,000 Autojumble spaces will be selling everything motor-related including parts, automobilia, literature and accessories, while the Motormart, on the Beaulieu Arena, will have up to 200 vehicles for sale, ranging from concours classics to restorable relics. In the Dealermart there will be a selection of quality classic cars for sale.

The show’s Motormarque feature celebrates a significant anniversary in the history of a model that went on to become a legend, or started an iconic design trend. This year, in celebration of 100 years of Morris cars the Dorset branch of the Morris Minor Owners’ Club is putting on a special display of up to 300 vehicles. The club hopes to round up as many different types of Morris as possible to have a vehicle representing each of the 70 years Morris was in production and so far over 200 vehicle owners have registered their interest.

Sunday highlights include Old Sodbury’s Land Rover Sortout, selling Land Rover and 4x4 parts and accessories and Trunk Traders, with amateur autojumblers selling their surplus car bits from the back of their vehicles.

The Walkabout Auction, introduced in 2012, was a great success and will be repeated again this year. Taking place on Sunday afternoon, it offers an ‘end of show’ chance to buy and sell, giving exhibitors an opportunity to sell off surplus items of stock they don’t want to take home with them.

For just £1, exhibitors can buy a box to fill with bits (larger items can go alongside), to be auctioned at the end of the afternoon. It’s a simple and easy way of buying or selling those last bits from the show and there are no auction fees to pay.

Visitors to the event will be able to enjoy all the Beaulieu attractions including the National Motor Museum, World of Top Gear and the BOND IN MOTION exhibition, showcasing 50 of the best-loved and most iconic Bond vehicles, now extended for a further year.
