Cape Classic car Show 2013
Some things are worth waiting for, especially if you are a petrolhead; the Cape Classic Car Show organised by the Cape Multi- Motor Club is one of these, as it comes around only every 2 years. This year’s show will take place on Sunday 3 November 2013 at the Jan Burger sports complex, de Grendel Rd in Parow on Sunday. Whilst there is no shortage of annual car shows in Cape Town, nothing compares to this massive bi-annual showing of cars for every interest; ranging from the vintage and veterans of the Crankhandle Club, through rare British and European motoring thoroughbreds, classic sports cars and saloons, big finned American classics to modifieds, modern supercars and even historic racing cars. At the previous show some 45 clubs participated with more than 1600 cars on display on several of the club fields. Although many of these cars may be seen regularly at various shows, each year sees a few rare and seldom exhibited cars on display. Exhibitors will leave their cars on display the whole day until 4 pm in order to allow plenty of time to admire the wonderful motoring heritage.
The Cape classic car show is open to the public from 09:00 and the nominal entrance fee of R30,00 will be put to good use with a charitable institution. Although the show attracts thousands of visitors, there is ample parking near and around the sports grounds, and there will be Club marshals to assist . Do expect a colourful and buzzing throng, with lots of activities for the whole family. Expect to see and hear a pipe band marching, and several other musical attractions. There will be stalls selling motoring related products, as well as other interesting goods, together with an amazing choice of food stalls to suit every possible taste. You may be sure that there will be plenty to eat and drink. The boy in every enthusiast is bound to want to spend some time (and money) at the indoor display of scale model cars where many are available to purchase. Here is one of the best opportunities to find that model that your collection is missing or just to buy a prized toy for the son.
Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to see the best of collectible Cape Town cars, or you will have to wait until 2015!
