Classics on show
MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC got a rare opportunity to see and in some cases touch some of the island’s classic cars yesterday.
The Barbados Association of Classic Cars (BACC) hosted the Classic Car Revival Meeting, sponsored by Courtesy Garage, at Content, St Thomas, giving Barbadians who are car enthusiasts the opportunity to view and learn details about cars that are 30 years and older.
BACC secretary-treasurer George Ullyett told the DAILY NATION that the event was a family outing for classic car owners, whose main event was their big show at the annual Holetown Festival.
He explained that last year when the same event was held, only club members attended. However, word of mouth sparked public interest.
“So this year we decided to invite members of the public who are interested. They are seeing nothing else but classic cars in fine condition. The cars here are 30 years old and older, which is the criteria to join the club,” he said. (AH)
