Enthusiasts flock to classic car display

Winchester Auto Barn held its second Breakfast Club Meeting on Saturday 1st December, attracting over three hundred motoring enthusiasts from across Hampshire.


Visitors came to enjoy the eclectic array of vehicles on display including a 1967 275 GTB/4 Ferrari, previously owned by Eric Clapton. This was sat alongside other classics including a Lamborghini Muira SV, a pair of concours Ford Escort Mexico’s, a Mercedes 280 SE 3.5, and a BMW 3.0 CSL Coupe, to name just a few.


Winchester Auto Barn is a newly-formed company that was created to provide a local hub and destination point for all those who have a passion for Classic Cars. As well as hosting the Breakfast Club events the garage offers on-site servicing, repairs and MOTs for both modern and classic vehicles. Winchester Auto Barn also offers for sale a selection of high quality, iconic classics from the 1960s to 1980s.


Niall Holden, founder and creator of Winchester Auto Barn explains: “Our vision was to provide a space for people to come and show off their pride and joy, meet kindred spirits, source their next vehicle or just hang out and talk car. We were delighted that despite the awful weather, we had a great turnout and got to meet a lot of like-minded people who share our passion for cars.”


The Rt Hon Caroline Noakes MP paid the Club a visit as part of her efforts to support Small Business Saturday. Caroline commented: “I am always pleased to support new business ventures in the constituency, and it was great to be able to have a look round the Auto Barn on Small Business Saturday. There were certainly a lot of people there and the plans for the future look really exciting.”


Winchester Auto Barn intend to hold another Breakfast Meeting in spring and to establish these events as a fixture for the motoring enthusiasts’ calendar.
