George Old Car Show 9 – 10 February 2019

23rd George Old Car Show focuses on rare and exotic cars

 

George, Garden Route – The 23rd George Old Car Show, driven by Oakhurst Insurance Company and which will take place on 9 – 10 February 2019, was launched at Protea Hotel by Marriott King George on Friday 2 November 2018. Oakhurst Insurance Company will be involved for the third consecutive year.

 

George Municipality also confirmed their continued support. “George mayor Melvin Naik believes the show is making a major contribution to the city of George, and therefore pledged a much larger donation,” said Japie Beyers, media spokesperson for the Southern Cape Old Car Club committee, who is organizing the 23rd George Old Car Show.

 

Focus on exceptional cars

The focus in the main arena will be on rare and exotic cars, such as Dr Waldo Scribante’s 1971 Porsche 914, of which only seven were manufactured.

“We want to focus on rare collectors’ items which are not readily available to everybody. We believe that these cars will lend special status to the George Old Car Show.”

 

New venue

The 2019 George Old Car Show will be the last to take place at PW Botha College in York Street. The first Old Car Show was presented on Paul Fick’s farm Blackwood near Victoria Bay in 1997. The next year the show moved to the George Riding Club in Glenwood Road, but the venue became too small and it moved to PW Botha College in 2001. “The venue has once again become too small to accommodate visitors’ parking,” said Beyers. “Therefore the show will move back to Glenwood Road in 2020, but this time the main show will be held on the premises of Glenwood House School. The adjacent Riding Club will provide ample parking space for visitors.”

 

Veteran Tour

The Veteran Tour will take part on the eve of the George Old Car Show on 8 February. “The Veteran Tour, supported by Airoclassics, will depart from Klaarstroom on Friday morning,” said tour organizer Philip Kuschke. “We expect some 20 cars to take place. Two or three of these will be single cylinder cars manufactured before 1905 and will fit in nicely with the focus on rare and exclusive cars.”
