A glimpse back into the golden age of motoring
Johannesburg is filled with car enthusiasts of all shapes and sizes, and they definitely are a social bunch. Whether you have attended a car meet, or even cursed a convoy of stupidly loud classics on the N1, it comes as no surprise that the return of classic car shows is upon us.
Whether you enjoy the throaty roar of an American V8, the wild turbo spooling of a JDM legend or maybe prefer the class and status of the European classics; there might just be an event for you. The Nasrec Expo Center is back at it again bringing us a motoring event for the Enthusiasts.
The Classic Car show is back and with it comes a variety of classics from across the country. Johannesburg’s last large-scale classic car show was in 2019, so it’s fair to say that it has been a long time coming. The event will host a full variety of motoring masterpieces. With a diverse American motoring arrangement, you should expect hotrods from the early 1930s, to Concours-spec Chevys and of course enough Mustangs and Cobras to impress even Carl Shelby himself.
In the Japanese corner, it's only fair to say that the tuners will be in their element. From exotic Hondas to modified Toyotas. There will be no shortage in the variety of JDM cars in attendance.
Finally, we are left with the European selection, and what a selection it will be. From MGs to Ferraris and Porsches to Alfas. The variety will be nothing short of spectacular.
We’ll bet that the 2nd and 3rd of July 2022 will be quite the memorable showing with Sunday the 3rd set aside for the public to come and drink in the motoring heritage. The show starts at 8 a.m and concludes at 4 p.m. The show caters to all with exhibitions, drift events, live music, a flea market and even affordable helicopter flips.
At R80 a ticket for adults, or R60 on Computicket, and R20 for children under 12, the Classic Car Show is an exciting, yet affordable, day out. With something for you, gramps and your wife, we can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday.
