Timour Hall Classic Carshow

26 January 2011 8 Comments

Greetings, greetings, greetings! I’m wishing all AM readers, supporters and writers a blessed and prosperous 2011 and by the look of things it’s going to be a good one! It’s been a while since my last write-up,but I’m back to give you more exclusive coverage, updates of events happening in and around Cape Town, and some useful tips-car related of course! If things are going to plan, Cape Town should be having their first EMMA event in April, so stay glued to AM-a BIG thanks to “Yours Truly”, Barend. I have received a number of calls, e-mails and sms’s informing me about events happening in and around Cape Town and people simply just love AM to be out there and supporting them.

Starting off the year I went to a Classic Car show, hosted by the International Police Association, at Timour Hall in Plumstead. It was their 11th annual event and it was well organized by event co-coordinator, Jo Huymen and crew. I was invited by the Cortina MK1 & 2 Club to join them and was told to be there at 8. By the time I got there, I was immediately stunned by the cars surrounding me. From classics to modern classic, old school to new school, classic bikes to our daily modified metal. Mustangs, Ford/Chevy/ Shambrock Cobra’s, Chevy pick ups, Chevy Belairs, VW Combi’s(split windows) to mention a few were some of the classics on display. Some of Cape Town’s Car Clubs like Xtreme Vdub, Team Toy Freaks, Cortina MK 1 & 2 Club and Zoopedup to name a few, also came out to support the event. Speed and Sound also had some of their drag cars on display and signed some posters for the crowd. There were more then 100 cars on display and the choice of venue must have been the best that I’ve ever seen. The crowd turnout here was also the largest I have seen at any car show event and there were ample parking!

All the money raised went to the Living Way Campus, a NPO educational school, in Kommetjie. I must admit, I had an awesome time with the guys and thank you,Paul, for keeping us entertaining throughout the day! Until next time, God Bless…
