Borehamwood Times: Classic car show a hit with motor enthusiasts Classic car show a hit with motor enthusiasts

Classic cars, motorcycles and other vehicles from the last century glistened in the sun at the town festival’s vintage car show.

Replicas of scooters from the film "Quadrophenia", Mini Coopers and Jaguars were just some of the exhibits on show at Maxwell Park Community centre, In Maxwell Road.

The event was hosted by Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council and featured 25 vehicles with the oldest being a 1931 Singer Junior, which had been lovingly restored by its owner.

Town councillor Sandra Parnell who visited the event said: “This event has really been fantastic. We tried to have a show as part of family’s day last year but it didn’t really take off.

“But this year having a separate event has really been great and the turnout has been superb. The cars are beautiful and I think it has given the festival a boost and something different for people to enjoy.

“The people if Maxwell centre have been great and have been really supportive. This year’s festival has been a great success so far and lovely to see so many people out enjoying the different events.”

Brendan Poga, 36, who was enjoying the car display with his family said: “It’s a really lovely event for everyone and nice for the kids to see the classic cars.

“I have to say my personal favourites are the Minis because they remind me of when I was young.”

Stephen Robbins, of Hillside Avenue, said: “I think having a classic car show as part of festival is fantastic.

“It’s great to see cars from my youth like the Ford Escort. It would be really nice if they have it again for next year.”

On Saturday June 28 the 58th Elstree and Borehamwood festival will come to an end with the free Families Day event.

Last week hundreds of people lined the streets of the town for the annual festival parade which included more than 20 floats.

That's my favourite thing - when the shows have replicas of cars from the movies... It'd be great to have a show completely dedicated to that!
