BUCKIE Classic Car Show was described as a “fantastic day out” by one of the event organisers, John Clark.
The event, which took place at Gordon Linzee Park on Sunday, drew thousands – with more than 500 classic cars from 12 motoring clubs, alongside 24 motorbikes.
“It was an absolutely fantastic day and a really good show,” Mr. Clark said. “It was buzzing from around 10am to 4.30pm and everyone had a great time.
“Everyone came and left with a big smile, there was no hassle on D-Day. All the Covid bruises were washed away. Trade stalls were busy and charities did well.
“The amount of positive feedback we received was amazing.”
The event was opened by Moray Council Chief Executive Roddy Burns, who was in attendance with his wife and daughter. He unveiled a car restored by John Clark last year.
The Show and Shine event was won by a 1985 Escort RS Turbo, with a Lotus Carlton and Ford Focus RS500 proving popular.
The most traveled car was a 1951 Land Rover, which came from Manchester.
Mr Clark added: ‘We don’t charge people to enter and the failure to charge people is reflected in the prices charged by traders.
“We don’t charge traders a fee to get in, but some were giving £100 so we were shocked.
“The committee would like to thank Moray Council, PC Brian Mill, vehicle participants, stall owners and members of the public.
“We learn from every show, so hopefully next year will be even better.”
