Malahide Classic and Vintage Motor Show set to take place on May 22Gary Ibbotson 13 May 2022
Organisers of the Malahide Classic and Vintage Motor Show have announced two well-known personalities from the motoring world as guest judges at this month’s show.
Set to take place on Sunday, May 22, the motor show is set to be judged by Bob Montgomery and David Golding.
Montgomery is Ireland’s foremost motoring and aviation writer with over twenty titles to his name.
With a motor industry background, and being the curator of the unique Royal Irish Automobile Club archive, he is well placed to judge a cared-for motor or a restoration
project, organisers say.
Well known in classic car circles he was the founder of the RIAC Pioneer Run for early cars and was organiser of the RIAC National Classic Car shows.
David Golding has established a reputation as one of Ireland’s leading classic and modern car dealers with over 34 year’s experience.
He has a dedicated following in the media, both print and social, and has a keen eye for a good classic or vintage car when he sees one.
The vintage motor show will take place at the Grand Hotel in Malahide on Sunday 22 May and will feature some rare and expensive cars.
This will be the ninth running of the event which attracts car lovers and families from across Leinster and is one of only two shows in the Dublin region this year.
Expect to see up to 100 cars with rare marques like Alpine, Borgward, Bitter and Karmann Ghia, exotics like Ferrari, Porsche, TVR and vintage and classics like Austin, BMW, Crossley, Ford, Opel, Triumph, Jaguar, Mercedes and VW as well as some American muscle all between 25 and 100 years old.
For the family there will be fun and games, card magic, ice cream and a fire engine.
The show will open at 11.00am and admission will cost €5, with children under 10 free, and the entire proceeds going to two important causes – Ukraine humanitarian relief and
Family Carers Ireland.
