The chairman of the Vintage Car Association of Thailand Mr. Khwanchai Paphasphong informed that this year’s event would celebrate its first decade with a big parade boasting over 50 vintage, classic and custom cars hardly to be seen elsewhere in this country.
All the cars are worth 300 million Baht in total. More importantly, this will be the first time that visitors are allowed to participate closely in the event. “We and Amari Hua Hin will provide both Thai and foreign people a great opportunity to enjoy every activity the event has to offer.
At the back of the hotel, a concert of The Richman Toy, The Year and Pang Nakharin will be organized along with a vintage Thai market,” said Mr. Khwanchai. The organizers conceptualized this year’s event as, “Vintage heart for any generations,” because the Vintage Car Association was concerned that some vintage cars in Thailand were near extinction.
At present, vintage car conservation is no longer an activity for high heeled people but younger generations with creativity. In so doing, Thai culture will be cherished while vintage cars with classic styles will survive. The first festive activity open widely for younger people, the 10th Hua Hin Vintage Car Parade is free of charge for Thai and foreign visitors.
