The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show is the biggest event in the UK Classic Car calendar. Good Shout Media popped along to the NEC to pick out some of the cars that WE liked at this years show; not because they’re expensive, or historically significant, or rare… just because we think they’re pretty darn cool…
#3 – The Auto Finesse Volkswagen Caddy
At Good Shout Media we have a real soft spot for a pick up truck.
We can’t stop going on about the Vauxhall Maloo road test, and our car ‘CV’ includes 3 Caddys, a 1.6, 1.8 GTI and a 2.0 Seat engined beast… We don’t do diesels when it comes to trucks.
The Auto Finesse Caddy was one of the first cars we saw when entering the NEC Classic Motor Show, and boy is it a looker.
Auto Finesse clearly know what’s what when it comes to marketing. Considering the size of their stand, they’d done a great job of making it look fantastic. The rustic boxes and well place truck (with music playing) were exactly what it took to draw the crowds.
We really have to take our hat off to these guys for making the most of what was essentially a single car display with a bit of retail space… Top work, and an inspiration to others!
When it comes to a promotional vehicle, Auto Finesse have the whole thing down.
The Volkswagen Doubleback is an ingenius concept in creating a motorhome that’s as good to drive and look at as it is to sleep in.

A selection of items written for the Most Wanted section of Wavelength Surf Magazine, a page used to preview new products and generally showcase the objects of desire that caught our eye:
Mule Transport Systems ‘Long Haul’ is an innovative cycle and surfboard solution for longboards, making it easy to transport boards over 7ft long to the beach in an environmentally friendly – and heathy way.
The Wild Card… Not a product you’ll find in shops, but a fun idea in the wake of the Nike Lowers Pro surfing competition. The idea of having an unseeded, non ranking surfer flailing around in the water whilst over 5 million people watch on a live webcam would be quite a spectacle.
The FliTunes Frisbee added a new dynamic to the Wavelength Surf Magazine head office during summer 2012. As a frisbee and as a miniature amplifier, the Flitunes is a great addition to your summer beach bag.
The Solo Shot takes the ‘selfie’ to a new level, giving the surfer the freedom to surf whilst capturing every move from the beach.
The Cocoon Tree caught our eye as being an incredibly relaxing place to be. Although the Cocoon Tree has been seen at many high-end hotels, it’s available for the general public to purchase… Although the view isn’t!
At Wavelength Surf Magazine, we’d often receive parcels claiming to be ‘the next big thing in surfing’, but the 3D Fins really did impress. The golfball technology works to give the surfboard a fresh feel, and in M3 size made a big difference to our 5’10 surfboard in average sized UK waves.
