Classic cars take centre stage in Hong Kong


More than 100 historic vehicles will take to the harbour front of Hong Kong on 15-16 November as part of a celebration of all things vintage. The Hong Kong Classic Car and Vintage Festival is set to take over the event space with live bands, film screenings and antique markets, but it is the classics that will take pride of place by the waterfront.

A 1960s Edsbrat is the headline attraction. The racing car is one of just a handful to be built in Hong Kong and was masterminded by Eddie Carvalho, winner of the first Macau Grand Prix in 1954. A special exhibition highlighting the Edsbrat's early history and later restoration in the 1990s is not to be missed.

Also sure to prove a hit with visitors is a special display of taxis, with a 1957 Austin A55 Cambridge the star attraction. The model was used extensively in the city during the 1950s and '60s.
