Saturday 1 September 2012 saw the annual Buntingford Classic come to the town. This year had a staggering 130 pre-entries confirmed and even more turned up on the day, the town was the place to be for any self-respecting motor enthusiast. Classic cars, trucks, tractors and bikes of all ages lined the entire historic High Street with a vibrant and colourful spectacle.
For the enthusiastic classic vehicle owner, the event represented the perfect opportunity to polish up the chrome and enjoy like minded company. For the casual onlooker, the free admission to the event gave a rare opportunity to soak up real nostalgia in the historic setting. Real vintage motors hobbling along Buntingford’s original cobble street, surrounded by its old Tudor scene and with good weather too.
There was plenty going on in town all day. Several barbeques and a hog roast were on offer, as well as a number of fabulous live musicians entertaining on every street corner. All of the shops were open, although access to them by car was restricted.
The event took place between 11.00am and 4.00pm on Saturday 1 September 2012.
