The 2018 Ford Veteran and Vintage Tour is an extension of the regular VetTour which usually takes place a day before the George Old Car Show and actually forms part of the Show. This tour run annually attracts about 20 cars all manufactured originally without brakes on the front wheels. This year the tour has been extended to four days to celebrate the Ford Model T and Model A turning 110 and 90 years respectively. There are 52 vehicles entered for this tour. All these vehicles will be on display at the show.

In 2008 the Southern Cape Old Car Club (SCOCC) organised a tour of some 700 km to celebrate the centenary of the Model T Ford in the Garden Route area. There were 43 cars that entered for this tour of which 37 cars were Model T Fords, the most seen together at one time in many, many years. The enthusiasm and camaraderie experienced during this tour has triggered a new excitement among veteran and vintage car enthusiasts and since that tour in 2008 these cars have been seen more frequently on tours and rallies.

The large number of Model T Ford owners have applied pressure on certain members to organise another tour of this magnitude. The result was the birth of the 2018 Ford Veteran and Vintage Tour. In essence this tour will be celebrating 110 years of the Model T Ford and 90 years of the Model A Ford. The target group for the tour is Ford cars manufactured before the end of 1930. A few entries of other rare and unique brands of veteran and vintage cars have also been accepted.
