Knysna Motor Show will host cream
The seventh Knysna Motor Show, sponsored by Sanlam Private Wealth, will host some of the most collectable cars on the African continent on Sunday 29 April at the Knysna High School sports grounds on Waterfront Drive, Knysna.
Cars ranging from a 1908 Ford Model S to modern supercars by Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini will grace this event. American 1950s “fins ‘n flash land yachts”, adorable micro cars and classic motorcycles will vie for attention amongst classic racing cars and huge motorised chariots from the vintage and veteran era.
The Knysna Motor Show is a one-day only event, held at the Knysna High School sports grounds, with elegant food and drink stalls providing refreshments in keeping with the glamour of this top-quality classic car event. Nevertheless, the show is family orientated, with a relaxed atmosphere. There is a beer garden and a food court to cater to all culinary tastes.
Perfectly preserved veterans from the 1920s and 1930s will include a 1936 Cord Westchester 810 (the so-called coffin-nosed Cord), a 1928 Bentley 3-litre, a selection of Model T Fords, a 1923 Rolls-Royce 20 HP Doctor’s Coupé and, from an even earlier era a 1913 Cadillac Phaeton, to stand alongside the Ford Model S, which is 110 years old this year.
