Welcome to Linlithgow Classics, the website of Linithgow Classic Car Group. We’re a group of classic car owners and enthusiasts based in Linlithgow, West Lothian, Scotland, about 15miles to the west of Edinburgh.

The season really gets going from about April until September or October, during which time we meet up regularly to show the cars in the centre of Linlithgow at the Vennel beside the Library just down and west from Linlithgow Cross . This season we’ll be back meeting on the 4th Saturday of the month.   We also visit other classic car events, shows, car museums and competitions around the country, and meet up just for a laugh, a bit of chat, food + drink, and a bit of old car driving.

We started up in 2007 with three or four members and now we’re up to about 40…….the more the merrier!

Anyone in the town or the wider area with an old, classic or interesting car or vehicle is very welcome to come and join us.

Our website is now kindly sponsored by local business Robert Callander Opticians –  www.callanderopt.co.uk  – for which we’re very grateful and we hope all our members and visitors will see their way to take advantage of Robert’s services!

On Sunday 5th September in glorious sunshine we hosted our very 1st Linlithgow Classics Car Day + attracted about 60 classic cars from car clubs + individual owners from round the country .

Fiona Hyslop MSP (http://www.fionahyslop.com/) took time out in her busy schedule of electioneering to visit our 1st Farmers Market show of the 2010 season on Saturday 24th April.  The yellow Westfield must have caught the Minister’s eye as being the right colour for the SNP..!

The group joined in the fun to support this year’s Ferry Fair in South Queensferry in glorious sunshine on Saturday 14th August.  We joined the Jowett Owners Club + other local classics in the cavalcade to wow the local population.  Real fun…everyone should try it!

The day after on Sunday 15th a number of the group also visited the Biggar Classic Show – a sea of classic cars, commercial vehicles, miltary vehicles, fire engines + motor bikes, together with classic jumble + stalls….another great day out in the sun. 

To start our 2010 season we took a few cars to sunny Winton House near Pencaitland on Friday 16th April to entertain a party of Dutch telecom (kpn) business visitors, as part of their weekend visit to Scotland arranged by HelloScotland! (http://www.helloscotland.com/) and Kingsfield Leisure.  The Dutch gentlemen loved the Ferrari + the Jag but the ladies loved the sports cars….dankuwel..!  

The guys get ready to roll

1937 Singer Bantam at the Cross - September 2009

One of the last Singer Bantams in the UK had its 1st public outing in many years at the Linlithgow Farmers Market in September.  The car was purchased by one of the group’s members after sitting unused and rotting away in an Edinburgh lock up for a number of years.  When the car was on show a number of older members of the public commented they could remember seeing these cars before World War II.  The picture shows group members showing off this fine old machine.
