The Jamaica Classic Car Club (JCCC) held its first major car show in nearly a decade at the Jamaica Horticultural Society, Hope Pastures, St Andrew, on Sunday, November 11.

The event pulled out plenty of patrons.

“It was a lovely turnout. I think everyone on the grounds enjoyed the day and everything went smoothly. The effort is worth the reward. I personally think it was a major achievement of the club and judging from the elders in the club, this may be the biggest show yet,” Shane Angus, JCCC president, told the Jamaica Observer's Auto magazine.

Under Angus's leadership, the JCCC has been very active having monthly link-ups across the island.

The show fielded 131 vehicles.

“On my last count we had 121 cars and 10 bikes. We had forecast 120 to our patrons and sponsors, so this is good news. I must say we had something for everyone, from European, America and Japanese,” Angus said.

Cars were paired in their respective categories and labelled, making it easy for patrons to walk around and view all the displays. Many went instantly for their favourite, but then took the time to take in the others. Vehicles ran the gamut from the eldest 1926 Chevy to modern collectables like a Ferrari 458 Italia.

“The patrons loved the event and expressed their gratitude for hosting such an event. It was a good family day for many as their kids got an educational lesson while they had a walk down memory lane.

The sponsors all expressed satisfaction and said it was a good event and they were pleased they came on board.”

Angus said the club is happy the with more than positive feedback, but will continue to focus on their monthly drive outs across the island.

“I hope this show will encourage more members to participate,” he said.
