Lagos Motor Show to Showcase Classic Cars and Unite Auto Enthusiasts

The Lagos Motor Show (LMS) is set to take place from February 23 to 25, 2024, at the Eko Convention Centre, Lagos. The event will feature a display of classic cars, as well as a charity auction, a networking session, and a panel discussion. The LMS aims to unite the automotive community and collectors, as well as to promote the culture and history of cars in Nigeria.

One of the highlights of the LMS will be the exhibition of classic cars, which are vehicles that are at least 25 years old and have historical or cultural significance. The show will showcase over 100 classic cars from different eras, countries, and styles, such as vintage, antique, muscle, sports, and luxury cars.

Some of the classic cars that will be on display include a 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing, a 1967 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle, a 1985 Toyota Land Cruiser, and a 1993 Peugeot 504. The cars will be judged by a panel of experts and enthusiasts, who will award prizes for the best in show, the most original, the most restored, and the most popular.

The LMS will also feature a charity auction, where some of the classic cars will be sold to raise funds for various causes, such as education, health, and environmental protection. The auction will be conducted by a reputable auction house, and the proceeds will be donated to selected NGOs and charities.

LMS to Foster Networking and Knowledge Sharing among Auto Stakeholders

Another objective of the LMS is to foster networking and knowledge sharing among the various stakeholders in the automotive industry, such as manufacturers, dealers, importers, regulators, media, and enthusiasts. The event will provide a platform for them to exchange ideas, insights, and opportunities, as well as to showcase their products and services.

The LMS will also host a panel discussion, where experts and influencers will discuss the current trends and challenges in the automotive sector, such as the impact of COVID-19, the adoption of electric vehicles, the regulation of emissions, and the development of infrastructure. The panel will also address the role and potential of classic cars in the Nigerian market, as well as the best practices and tips for collecting and maintaining them.

LMS to Promote the Culture and History of Cars in Nigeria

The LMS is not only a show of classic cars, but also a celebration of the culture and history of cars in Nigeria. The event will highlight the stories and personalities behind the cars, as well as the social and economic impact of cars on the country.

The LMS will also feature a documentary screening, where a film crew will showcase the journey of some of the classic car owners and collectors, as well as the challenges and joys they face in preserving and driving their cars. The documentary will also explore the history and evolution of cars in Nigeria, from the colonial era to the present day.

The LMS will also include a book launch, where a renowned author will present his latest book on the history and culture of cars in Nigeria. The book will cover the origins, development, and diversity of cars in the country, as well as the stories and anecdotes of some of the most iconic and influential cars and drivers.
