A CLAS­SIC DAY OUT

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - PICTURES - By MYLES BUCHANAN

VIN­TAGE car en­thu­si­asts had plenty to look for­ward to on New Year’s Day as The Bee­hive Pub played host to a static show of cars, mo­tor­cy­cles and trac­tors.

Club mem­bers usu­ally meet up on New Year on an an­nul ba­sis for the first show of the year.

The static show gen­er­ated plenty of in­ter­est with a steady stream of vis­i­tors ar­riv­ing through­out the day to catch a glimpse of vin­tage ve­hi­cles of al shapes and sizes, in­clud­ing cars, lor­ries and an old break­down ser­vice re­cov­ery ve­hi­cle.

The event is or­gan­ised by Wick­low Vin­tage Club each year, who were also re­spon­si­ble for ar­rang­ing the post Christ­mas fun run which took place on De­cem­ber 29. The run left from Ly­h­nam’s Ho­tel in Laragh. All par­tic­i­pants stopped in the Wood­en­bridge Ho­tel for some lunch. Other mem­bers also took part in the Gap Vin­tage Club run held the fol­low­ing day.

Wick­low Vin­tage Club was formed in 2005 by a group of like minded vin­tage and clas­sic en­thu­si­asts who had a keen in­ter­est in trac­tors, cars, en­gines and mo­tor­cy­cles.

The club’s mem­ber­ship has grown since then as the or­gan­i­sa­tion goes from strength to strength. The club also ar­ranges and car­ries out a num­ber of char­i­ta­ble fundrais­ers each year.
