For classic car fans, this weekend looks like being rather special as the NEC in Birmingham is hosting the Classic Car Show from Friday November 9th to Sunday 11th. Tickets are available on the door and there will be more than 1,000 classic from all eras on display, but the car that we're most excited by is the ultra-rare Bugatti Royale, on loan from the Donnington Collection after a £1.6 million build.

To celebrate the Classic Car Show, we've put together a list of our 50 favourite classic cars. But we needed to agree on what a classic is because it is a term that is obviously open to wide interpretation - so do let us know if you think we got it wrong.

With more than 100 years of automotive history to choose from we have tried to confine ourselves to the more recent eras and restrain ourselves from simply choosing the more obvious, and more expensive, models. We are fairly certain our choices won't find universal favour and indeed may provoke spirited debate in offices across the country but we hope you enjoy them and at least agree with a handful. If not, well feel free to let us know on our message board which cars we should include next time.
