The Heritage Tour, supported by Liquorland for the fifth time, leaves from George on 23 September and enthusiastic supporters of vintage and classic cars will have the opportunity to meet the owners and admire the vehicles along the route.

So far, more than 20 vehicles have been registered to participate. One of the prerequisites for participation is that the vehicle must have been manufactured before 1975. The two oldest vehicles taking part include a 1926 Ford Model T and a 1929 Chev Phaeton, which both date from way before then.

About midway along the route they will spend a while at the Kliphotel Country Shop near Misgund, before proceeding to the seaside town, where they will overnight at the Sea Shells Holiday Resort.

They will meet the Jeffreys Bay Classic Car Club at Supertubes Park in Da Gama Street at 16:00, where they would love to meet residents.

Day 2: 24 September – Jeffreys Bay to Addo (about 143 km)

On Heritage Day, the group will travel along the R102, R334 and R335 to the village of Addo, from where they will proceed to the Addo Elephant National Park. At the park, they will celebrate National Braai Day and the Southern African Veteran and Vintage Association’s (SAVVA) National Drive It day.

Residents of all towns along the route are welcome to visit the venues where the Heritage Tour will stop and stay, in order to interact with the owners of the vehicles.

The Heritage Tour celebrates National Heritage Day and September as Tourism Month. It also serves to promote the SCOCC’s annual George Old Car Show, which will take place on 10 and 11 February 2018. The Heritage Tour also serves to stimulate a love and interest in this unique heritage on wheels.

2015 Liquorland Erfenis Toer

 

erfenis2015 logoDie Erfenistoer vind elke jaar plaas oor erfenis naweek. Hierdie jaar was die vierde toer en die derde jaar wat Liquorland betrokke was en daarom is dit ook gepas dat dit bekend staan as Die Liquorland Erfenistoer. Ons probeer om elke jaar n nuwe roete te doen, en gewoonlik deur verskillende interesante klein geskiedkundige dorpies. Deur hul onbaatsugtige verbintenis en bystand help hulle ons ook om ons motors te gebruik en die nostalgie daarvan aan die jonger geslag oor te dra, waar beter om dit te doen as oor erfenis naweek. Die uiters suksesvolle toer is baie gewild onder die publiek sowel as ons klublede. Inskrywings word van alle uithoeke van ons land elke jaar ontvang.

Deur middel van die instansies se betrokkenheid stel dit die toer komitee en die Suid Kaap Oumotorklub ook in staat om n skenking aan n liefdadigheids organisasie te doen.

We are extremely fortunate and grateful to have had a number of sponsors over the past years with Liquorland as our titlesponsor. Without these companies’ very welcome sponsorships, this terrific event just would not have been possible.

The SCOCC would like to acknowledge these sponsors and to take this opportunity to thank them profusely for their constant support.


Deur:- Pierre Olivier

Donderdag 24 September 2015 het aangebreek en 21 Oumotors tree aan by Liquorcity Liquorland op die onderpunt van Yorkstraat vir die derde Liquorland Erfenistoer. Die Wimpy borg Koffie, die bestuurders kry hul finale instruksies en Perfect water sorg dat elke deelnemer n bottle water kry om saam te neem.

Toeskouers het die motors kom besigtig en oral kon jy die opgewondenheid van die mense ervaar. Dankie ook aan ons klublede wat nie deelgeneem het nie, maar ons kom afsien en voorspoed toewens het.

So vat ons die Outeniqua pas en die Plymouth begin rook asof hy in n tabak advertensie is maar sy geite word gou opgelos en is hy reg vir die res van die toer. Net toe alles weer klopdisselboom gaan begin die Packard stoom en sy geite het maar voortgegaan die hele toer deur. Die blou Chev was n ander storie sy voorwiel laer het opgepak en daar staan hy ook langs die pad. Op Uitenhage is hy reg gemaak en toe was al die foute opgelos. Een ding is seker die Chev se kattebak werk goed want as hy stop gaan die kattebat vanself oop, ek het nog nie agtergekom waarom nie.

Op dag twee het ons die auto pavilion by VWSA besoek waar n klein maar pragtige uitstalling nie net ou modelle vertoon nie maar ook hoogtepunte van VW motorsport . Dag drie neem ons Steytlerville toe en hier besoek ons Jurie Prinsloo se motormuseun met n paar goed versorgde motors waarvan die een wat uitgestaan het n Ford GT 40 was.

Ons sluit altyd ons toer met n gala ete af en hierdie jaar was nie afgewyk van die gewone nie. Die groot verassing van die aand was Marlise Steenekamp wat vir ons haar talent kom wys het hoe spaanse danse gedoen moet word. Ek was stomgeslaan en al wat ek kan se is Pragtig, baie dankie Marlise. Vier motors van die toer pryse is deur omstanders gekies. Ten spyte van Louis se Packard en Mike se Plymouth se probleme is die motors saam met Roy se Chev deur omstanders gekies as motors van die toer. Philip en Amanda Rosser se Model T het die prys vir oudtste motor op die toer ontvang.

Wat my die nederigste maak is die feit dat die toergangers hul beursies oopgemaak het vir liefdadigheid en het ons n goeie bedrag vir twee instansies kon invorder. Ek se altyd dat die toergangers n toer maak maar met hierdie gebaar het julle meer as dit gedoen BAIE DANKIE.

Ten einde laaste wil ek vir Sydney en Daphne wat die besemwa met hul bakkie beman het baie dankie se vir al die geduld wat hulle aan die dag gele het. Ek glo dat ons hom in die vervolg met sy oumotor op die toer sal sien.

Die instansies wat die SKOMK bygestaan het, hul advertensies is in die boek, ondersteun hulle asseblief.

2014 Liquorland Erfenis Toer

Every year, over the Heritage Day weekend, the SCOCC holds it’s Erfenis Toer, and this year will be the third year that this very  popular and successful event will be held. The first year, the route took us through various small towns along Route 62 and then  to L’Aghullas, the southernmost point of Africa. 

The route schedule for the second year was planned around Jefferies Bay, Port Elizabeth and surrounding areas including a trip  to the VW Museum in Uitenhage and the Addo Elephant Park.  

This year we will be travelling all the way as far as Gordons Bay and the Strand. We don’t want to give away too much information  here and ruin the surprise of the trip for those who have entered, but we will be following up with a report after our journey as well  as many photos that will be taken along the way. 

We are extremely fortunate and grateful to have had a number of sponsors over the past two years with Liquorland as our title  sponsors. Without these companies’ very welcome sponsorships, this terrific event just would not have been possible. The  SCOCC would like to acknowledge these sponsors and to take this opportunity to thank them profusely for their constant support.
