Classics on the Common > classics-4
Ferrari, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Norton, Harley Davidson, Vincent; names which evoke nostalgia among thousands of motor car and motorcycle enthusiasts. Imagine a rally with all these famous names and 1200 other classic motor cars and motorcycles in immaculate condition, displayed for the enjoyment of the public. This is the annual 'Classics on the Common' held in our town of Harpenden, Hertfordshire every summer since 1993.

The Classics were born when local resident Peter Madden organised a show after buying a 1968 Rover. He and other vintage car owners held the first rally with 125 classic cars. Since then the rally has grown tenfold and this year we were treated to a beautiful summer day in which to look around the famous marques.

Local charity Harpenden Village Rotary Club now organise the event. Visitors donations and exhibitors entry fees raise money which goes to local charities. At last year's 'Classics on the Common' more than 17,000 was collected by Rotary Club volunteers which benefitted St Francis Hospice, the National Deaf Children's Society and WaterAid.

We hope you like our photos which give a taste of the rally. Please give a thumbs up or Google+.
Thank you for looking.
