Another Classic Car Show, aptly named ‘The Car Years TV Show’, will grace living rooms across the UK early 2019.
Sponsored by Footman James, this latest offering will apparently present a fresh take on the popular classic car scene.
The show launches early 2019 and involves a simple format, which sees every episode of The Car Years focusing on a specific year of motoring, with presenters Vicki Butler-Henderson and Alex Riley selecting their favourite car for that particular year.
Both presenters will then do their level best to convince a panel of judge as to why each would be best.
You guessed it, the end of each show will reveal one model crowned the car of ‘its year’.
The three judges, each of whom double up as expert commentators to tell the stories and backgrounds behind the cars, will deliberate and cogitate before each arrives at their own conclusive decision.
The judging panel comprises of Chris Routledge, Managing Director of leading auction house Coys, Quentin Willson, presenter and journalist and ex-Top Gear and current The Grand Tour script editor, Richard Porter.
An excited Vicki Butler-Henderson said:
“I’m thrilled to be part of this beautifully shot series that allows us to tell the stories behind some of the best known and interesting cars ever made.”

Co-presenter Alex Riley added:
“This show is a rare thing – it’s all about the cars. We’re not telling people how to be a dealer or a restorer and we’re not just larking about, instead we’re championing great cars and telling the fascinating stories behind them.”
With the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show taking part this weekend, 9 – 11 November, both Vicki Butler-Henderson and Alex Riley will be available for one to one interviews after a press call on the Footman James stand in Hall 1, Friday 9th November at 12:45pm.
So, stay tuned for the first episode of The Car Years where you’ll see a 1964 Porsche 911 take on a 1964 Ford Mustang.
