Exquisite Model Car Display

The George Old Car Show, proudly driven by Oakhurst Insurance Company, takes place on 10 – 11 February 2018.

The show will once again have an indoor display of over 5 000 model cars, of which a large percentage will be for sale. This gives young and old an opportunity to admire or purchase a car in small scale that brings back memories of a vehicle he or she, or a parent possessed many years ago.

This display is a highlight of the show and is also thoroughly enjoyed by the children, maybe to the disadvantage of their parents’ pockets!

Bunny Wentzel of Sportique Collectable Models from Johannesburg will be attending the show again, where he will be displaying and selling one of the best model car products in the world, i.e. the CMC range from Germany.

Pictured here is their latest model, the Talbot Lago Coupé T150 C-SS “Teardrop” of 1937 – 1939 in 1:18 scale (18 times smaller).
