Classic Car Show revs up Bridgend town centre as rain fails to dampen spirits

From Bentleys to Corvettes and hot rods to Mercedes – vehicles to satisfy every taste could be found in the Classic Car Show on the streets of Bridgend .

The crowds flocked to the town centre on Sunday despite the rain and were not disappointed with the show put on by Glamorgan Classic Car Club.

Following on from last year’s event, this year’s show offered dozens more vehicles, including a classic Ford Granada police car from the UK and a US state trooper’s Trans Am.

It was one of the first events in Bridgend’s summer programme and was organised by Bridgend County Borough Council (BCBC) in conjunction with Bridgend Town Council (BTC) and town traders.

Chairman of the Town Centre Traders’ Forum Steve Bletsoe said: “The Classic Car Show on Sunday along with the Summer Kick Off Event in the Rhiw on Saturday was a fantastic way to start our town centre events programme this year.

“Working in partnership with BTC and BCBC, the traders will constantly be looking for further events to now create a buzz around the town.

“The Classic Car Show was a fantastic event that built on the success of last year, more cars, more people and more interest in the event as a whole.

“A lot of people put a lot of hard work into putting this event together and they all deserve to be acknowledged.

“I personally think we should pencil in a date for next year now and look to take it onto the next level.

“In the meantime, we will continue to work towards the Town Centre Summer Festival on August 20 and we hope to see many people there for some fantastic family fun.”
