In conjunction with the National Parade month in August, Singapore had been organising for the past 5 years, an event that attracts both the young and old, locals and overseas visitors. The event is our Singapore Heritage Festival.
There are many different events happening at the Singapore Heritage Festival 2008, do drop by their website and read about their various events and activities. Do join in the fun too !
As for me, being a photography and car lover, the vintage cars from Singapore and Malaysia and other countries too, came together as part of the Singapore Heritage Festival Vintage Cars Grand Prix and Concours display at the Raffles Landing site on 27th July 2008. I was a bit late therefore, I couldn’t catch them racing in action on the road (within speed limits).
I remember viewing the vintage cars at the National Museum Singapore and could identify some of the vintage cars. However, there were more different vintage cars on display at the 2008 event ! Sometimes, they do not need more words and introduction, admiring their classic beauty and racing power of the vintage cars are an art by itself.
Do drop by my flickr site and enjoy viewing the vintage cars !
I love these classical machines! They are everlasting treasure of Industrial Revolution!
Singapore Heritage Festival is such a great idea! I think we should learn much from your country.
They are very beautiful classical and vintage cars ! The Heritage Festival is a great idea, for the young and old to share and learn from one another, ensuring history and lessons would be passed on to the future generations !
My “other car” is a 1964 Jaguar XKE with whom I have a love/hate relationship! 😉
