Open invitation to roll up classic cars to annual Buckie event

BUCKIE IS SET to go classic next month when the annual gathering of cars old and very old gather in the town to show off a little – and put some cash into local charity coffers.

The Buckie Classic Car Show will be held on Sunday, August 27 – and organisers are inviting old and new owners to contact them and book a slot.

A spokesman for the event told insideMORAY: “This is for classic, modern classic, future classic cars – going on previous years we are expecting over 200 entries – with lots to see and do for everyone.

“Some of the finest motor vehicles in the north east will join a wide selection of trade stands, music, fair rides, husky dogs – and even a few belly dancers. It is all for local charities around Buckie – last year we managed to raise £3000 and we hope to at least match that this time around.”

Entrants for the event – which runs from 12noon until 4pm – will donate £5 but in return they receive a ‘goodie bag’ crammed with items that will include a free raffle ticket with the chance to win a Ferrari Experience at the Knockhill Race Circuit. The bag will also include a voucher for free Fish and Chips courtesy of The Codfather.

The spokesman added: “All in it’s a good day out for car enthusiasts and family’s looking to see some lovely cars.

“The Buckie lifeboat will also be attending and they also will be selling raffles for a prize draw – and this year we’re having a ‘Show and Shine’ that will probably appeal to the younger car enthusiast.

“The star of the show will be a very special car which attended the event last year after being discovered wrecked in a barn – this year it will be unveiled having been fully restored to pristine condition.”
