Classic car lovers, enthusiasts and hobbyists had the opportunity to foster closer ties when members of MY Classic Cars (MCC) in 20 classic cars made a special trip from Kuala Lumpur to Ipoh, to gather with members of Perak Classic Car Club (PCCC).
The more than 45 classic cars parked at Stadium Perak grounds surely attracted plenty of attention and drew the curiosity of passersby.
During the gathering, club members and the public had the chance to view these classic beauties at close range. These vehicles were with various marques, from Rolls Royce to Mercedes Benz, MG, Mini, Ford, Holden and VW Beetle.
The main attractions at this event were the 1933 Rolls Royce Phantom II belonging to Datuk Sia which participated and completed the Peking-Paris Rally; a Merc Benz 190SL convertible 1958 belonging to Ipoh member, Mr. PR Chandhran; and a white 1949 MG Y-type 4-seater convertible that should look resplendent at a garden wedding setting.
Vehicle owners also exchanged information on the availability of engines, spare parts and shared other crucial tips, such as on road tax reduction.
Mr. Rukshan and Mr. Michael Sundaram spoke on behalf of the MY Classic Cars (MCC) and were very happy and delighted with the great hospitality shown by the local members. Perak Classic Car Club (PCCC) members, Dr. Basel & KT Pillai spoke on behalf of the President, Mr. Yap who was unable to attend as he was out of town.
Exchange of souvenirs ensued, followed by a group photo. All members of both clubs and the Ford Escort group who attended by invitation then went on chatting till 12.30pm before members of MCC departed for Kuala Lumpur.
The future plan is to have PCCC members make a return visit in KL for the next gathering with MCC members.
