H-Town Clas­sic & Dub Club’s first birth­day meet in Hitchin, Herts.

Formed a year ago, H-Town Clas­sic & Dub Club is a Hitchin-based club de­signed to unite fans of clas­sic ve­hi­cles through reg­u­lar meet­ings in and around Hitchin, Hert­ford­shire.

To cel­e­brate their first birth­day, the club took over his­toric Hitchin Town Cen­tre be­tween 6-10pm, and I went along to see what all the fuss was about!

It might have been a cold Mon­day night in late Septem­ber, but the square was filled to burst­ing with a va­ri­ety of in­ter­est­ing clas­sic and mod­ern cars. In fact, there were so many cars present, that some own­ers (like me) were forced to leave them in ad­join­ing streets!

Al­though an im­pres­sive va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent Volk­swa­gen mod­els mostly made up the ve­hi­cles on show, with prizes for the best awarded, there were still plenty of other makes and mod­els on dis­play, and I’m pleased to say that the Clas­sic Mini was well rep­re­sented.

I saw ev­ery­thing from an early Cooper, through to a Club­man Es­tate com­plete with its faux wood trim on the side, plus a cou­ple of more mod­ern twin-point cars.

Over­all, it was fun and free event, al­though I hope it’s a bit warmer next time!

A great va­ri­ety of old and new was on dis­play.

Club­man Es­tate with that faux wood trim!

Cus­tom 90s sa­loon.
