The JoLon Imp had already made it to the history books by driving the 14,000 kilometers from Johannesburg, South Africa to Coventry, England but now has also made the last five chosen for the CCOTY awards at the NEC, Birmingham, England as well!
To me this achievement clearly recognises and acknowledges the extraordinary efforts of Terence and Geoff made in getting this special Imp all the way from Johannesburg to Coventry for the Imp 50 Celebrations. Thanks to everyone who voted for it in recent weeks it's much appreciated by Terence and myself.
I'll remember Terence whoop of joy on hearing the news for a very long time!
The car will be featured on a dedicated stand with the other four (unknown) cars at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Car Show at the NEC Birmingham from Friday 15th to Sunday 17th November. The announcement of the outright winner will be made on the Saturday afternoon.
The club will be doing all it can to highlight the story behind the car at the show and work on this is already underway.
The club has a larger stand than usual as part of our Imp 50 celebrations so there's all the more reason to visit this year!
In the meantime look out for details of the show and advance ticket info in Impressions and the motoring press.
To ImpFifty and beyond.....
