2016 George Old Car Show - Driven by Oakhurst Insurance

Ford Fairlane

The 2016 George Old Car Show driven by Oakhurst Insurance was the 20th old car show hosted by the Southern Cape Old Car Club. This year the main sponsor was the Oakhurst Insurance Company. The other big sponsors were Protea Hotels, George Municipality, the House of Classic and Sports Cars and SAB. Many other sponsors were on board as well to make the 2016 George Old Car Show the success it was.

The special exhibition in the arena area was dedicated to American Cars and a variety of specially selected American cars were positioned in this area. In addition there was a host of vintage and veteran tractors as well as motorcycles. In several classrooms a display of about 5000 model cars were exhibited. To round off the show the usual variety of food stalls and flea market as well as moto related stalls offered a variety of goods for sale.

There were 1050 cars, tractors, motorcycles and stationary engines on display. This includes about 80 new cars and motorcycles as well.

The total attendance figures were 12150 which was about 1400 more than 2015.

The 2016 George Old Car Show can be regarded as a record show in all aspects and as a result of the success an amount of R80 000 was donated to local charities.

The dates for the 2017 George Old Car Show is 11 & 12 February 2017.

2015 George Old Car Show

The Southern Cape Old Car Club hosted the 19th George Old Car Show on 14th and 15th February 2015. The larger sponsors this year included Protea Hotels, Die Burger, House of Classic and Sports Cars and the George Municipality. In addition there were the usual smaller sponsors all contributing to the success of the show once again.

As usual there was a large variety of cars, tractors, motorcycles and stationary engines on display with a special exhibition of red cars to celebrate Valentine’s Day. This year there were 1100 entries for the show which includes about 80 exhibited by dealers. The model car display numbering several thousand was as usual very popular among the visitors and drew a constant stream of people. Die oudste motor op die skou was Ty Terblanche se 1904 Cadillac B Tourer. Ons skou is altyd trots om ‘n groot aantal werklike ou motors uit te stal.

Die oudste stilstaande enjin was ‘n 1909 Star wat aan Paul Kouski behoort, en die oudste motorfiets was ‘n 1918 Francic Barenett wat aan Peter Boshoff behoort. Die inskrywings kan as volg ingedeel word (motors, motorfietse en stilstaande enjins):

  • 22 Veterane (tot 1918)
  • 24 in die groep 1918 tot 1930 (Vintage)
  • 52 in die groep 1931 tot 1945 (Post vintage)
  • Die balans was alles na 1945 vervaardig

Die besoeker getalle vir die 2015 skou was 10,750 wat die publiek, uitsatllers en werkers ingesluit het. Die syfer is sowat 400 laer as die van 2014 en word toegeskryf aan die reen wat die Saterdagoggend geval het.

Ons is weereens baie dankbaar aan die getroue uitstallers wat groot uitgawes aangegaan het om van al die uithoeke van ons land te kom om die George Oumotorskou te kom bywoon. Sonder die toewyding en entoesiasme van hierdie ondersteuners sal die skou nie sukses vol wees nie.

Dankie ook aan P.Kuschke en sy span wat die negende veteraantoer voor die skou behartig het. Soos gewoonlik het die veteraantoer die Vrydag voor die skou plaasgevind en was weereens vol bespreek

Due to the success of the show the Southern Cape Old Car Club was in a position to support several local charities in the Garden Route area totalling a value of R 50,000.00. The classic car auction which is a regular feature of the George Old Car Show also contributes to the size of the donations to the charities.

As for next year, please diarise the dates of 13 and 14 February 2016 for the 20th George Old Car Show. Please remember to encourage your members to register early on our website at www.scocc.co.za . The date on which the registration opens will be communicated to the clubs once it is confirmed.
