Jamaica Gleaner - - AUTOMOTIVES - – Con­tributed

THE JA­MAICA Clas­sic Car Club is host­ing its third car show for the year to­day at the Ja­maica Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety, Hope Pas­tures. Un­like pre­vi­ous events, which were dubbed ‘drive-outs’ where some mem­bers drove their ve­hi­cles out to var­i­ous lo­ca­tions, this one is aimed to show­case the more ex­clu­sive ve­hi­cles in their col­lec­tion.

“We are dig­ging real deep in our in­ven­tory for this show as mem­bers will be bring­ing some of the most clas­sic ve­hi­cles to dis­play. Ve­hi­cles that are rarely driven by the own­ers, things that you only see in mag­a­zines,” high­lighted Shane An­gus, pres­i­dent of the Ja­maica Clas­sic Car Club.

This be­ing the club’s main event for the year, they have metic­u­lously planned the show to im­press the pub­lic. “We are go­ing to have over 120 ve­hi­cles on dis­play. We don’t want to make it too crowded, ei­ther. So the venue will pro­mote a smooth flow of hu­man traf­fic to en­sure per­sons can walk around and see the var­i­ous ve­hi­cles prop­erly,” said An­gus.

Un­like shows of the past, this one has an un­der­ly­ing ed­u­ca­tional agenda as many of the ve­hi­cles that will be on dis­play have sto­ries be­hind them. “There is so much to learn about our ve­hi­cles. When you hear the sto­ries be­hind them, you can get a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of Ja­maica’s his­tory, and this is some­thing we want es­pe­cially the kids to take away,” ex­pressed An­gus.

He con­tin­ued, “We want this show to be a fam­ily event; that’s why we are only charg­ing $1,000. There will be some­thing for ev­ery­one, plus, many of our spon­sors will have their prod­ucts present to en­gage pa­trons.”

Ev­ery­one was abuzz at the sun­set launch of the new E-Pace from Jaguar, which com­bines the de­sign and dy­nam­ics of a Jaguar sports car in a five-seat com­pact per­for­mance SUV.
