These car are usually out and about visiting various attractions in the area. The best time to catch them all together is at the hotel from about 4pm on the Saturday.

One of my favourite annual events in Hua Hin.

Classic cars in Hua Hin this weekend

Post by usual suspect » Fri Dec 15, 2017 4:41 pm

Just ridden on Petkasem Rd, & saw quite a few classic cars converging on HuaHin.
But where are they going..? Some folk say you can see them at Bluport, some say the Sheraton, others say since the December car show left the Sofitel grounds they've been dotted across various venues...
..Does anyone have any times/venues where we can actually walk around them & admire them..?

There were quite a few of them on display at Bluport last week/earlier this week.

I've never seen a parade as such. They tend to go out to various attractions around the town and park up for a while. I saw these at Bluport this morning:

Arrived Bluport about 2:30 and there were cars to see. By 3pm after eating lunch, they were gone.

Heading to Sheraton next.

Please post photos if you have any. I'm suffering with a strained back at the moment and have been advised by Mrs BB to rest.

There was a sign the other day when those cars were on display on the ground floor of Bluport that they would be on display in the store before and after the 16th.

Great photos from both BB and Rcer. If I had to vote for a favourite, it'd be the XK120 Jag. Absolutely gorgeous.
