KUALA LUMPUR: An attraction at the Kuala Lumpur International Motorshow 2018 (KLIMS’18) is classic cars.
Aptly titled “Down Memory Lane”, it showcases vintage automobiles such as Cadillac Coupe DeVille, Ford Capri, Packard Clipper Deluxe, Chevrolet Impala, Renault Caravelle and a Rolls Royce Shadow II.
Businessman Jeff Phang travelled all the way from Penang just to attend KLIMS’18.
“I like cars and I like all the new cars here at the show. But these classic cars, from the 1950s, still stand out to this day.
“It’s nice to see some of the classics on display like the Ford Capri and Fiat 600, which I am familiar with, alongside the American muscle cars from the 50s and 60s like the Chevy Impala and the Cadillac Coupe DeVille on show,” said Phang.
Sarawak Governor Tun Abdul Taib Mahmud and wife Toh Puan Ragad Kurdi Taib were among the VIPs who visited KLIMS’18 and spent some time at the classic car section.
Visitors to KLIMS’18 on Thursday will get to see Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport Formula One driver Valtteri Bottas at 1.35pm at the Petronas booth on level 2.
KLIMS’18 features 74 vehicle brands and automotive products spanning over six exhibition halls covering two levels at the Malaysian International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC).
