Vintage vehicles to head to Largs for town's Classic Car Festival 2017

Excitement is mounting as well over 50 head-turning vehicles head to Largs this summer Bank Holiday for the town’s Classic Car Festival to be staged on the famous Promenade on Sunday, August 6.

There’s an amazing array of vehicles from older cars to modern classics including Dolomite Spirit, direct from the Moffat Rally to an Austin Healy A30, Beetles, Stags, Morris Minors and more.


There’s even an Invacar and for the first time this year some classic trikes too! The Scottish Fire and Heritage Service Rescue Trust will even be bringing along one of their vintage fire tenders. 

Again, this year, the cars will be driving in from collectors, enthusiasts and car clubs from all over Scotland to be displayed undercover in a massive marquee on Largs’ iconic Promenade.

John Hamilton, The Explore Largs BID Manager and co-organiser of the event with Yvonne Prager, Largs Street Ambassador, said: “With Daimlers, Porches, Minis and even a vintage Taxi; there will be something for every kind of car lover at this year’s festival.

“Whether you’re a petrol head with the love of all things motorised, to someone just wanting to rekindle some motoring memories, we will have it all under cover here in Largs.

“Last year we had a lot of grandparents showing their amazed grandchildren the cars they first drove back in their heyday; a really touching and precious thing to see.”

In addition to the myriad of motors in the marquee, the festival boasts a whole host of family fun. There will be a music tent, complete with bar, seating area with tables and chairs plus live bands. 

Children will have their own entertainment too, so not only do they get in for free with a paying accompanying adult, they also have free face painting from the hugely popular and talented Face Painting Fairies and their own ‘Drive-a-long plus Sing-a-long’ shows performed by The McDougall’s.

All this excitement and automotive action is bound to make you hungry. Catering for every taste will be Bay Ices, Bon Bon Café, Cedar Cottage Country Foods, West Coast Coffee, Lounge, plus the Chefs Eye with their mouth-watering BBQ food cooked fresh in front of your eyes! Oh, and don’t forget the sensational sweets from Largs’ very own Continental. 

Admission to this spectacular Sunday Bank Holiday event is just £3 for adults and children go free as long as they are accompanied by a paying adult. And, after you have been to the Classic Car Festival why not take in all the sights, sounds, shops and seaside fun Largs has to offer.
