Hazyview the starting point for vintage cars, their drivers and passengers to go on an adventure

Some senior citizens, old car enthusiasts, took the opportunity to descend into their legendary vehicles, visiting memorable places and cities during their trip. The classic cars were two MGs, a Porsche and two Alfa Romeos. A Ford Everest followed them as an emergency vehicle with a car trailer.

The oldest model was a 1968 Alfa Romeo Junior and the last a 1989 Porsche 928 S4.

Kroonstad, Graaff Reinet, George, Port Alfred, McClear, Underberg and Nottingham Road were the overnight stops. “The hospitality of the people in the quaint little hotels was fantastic with good levels of service and great food,” said band member Edna Minkner-Fick.

Seniors visited classic car collections at Graaff Reinet, Sedgefield, Knysna, Nottingham Road and of course the largest collection was at the George Classic Car Show. Here more than 1,000 vehicles rich in history, all brightly colored and neat, were on display.

“The interest shown by locals along the route was wonderful. It was a great way to strike up a conversation with people at various locations where we stopped for a picnic, a braai en route or for a coffee break,” Minkner-Fick said.

Regional Tourism Consultants invites vintage car enthusiasts to join the next road trip.
