A car enthusiast once said “cars are the most alive non-living things ever made ... and cars don’t mind if a man checks out other cars.”

So, when it comes to checking out other cars, jump into your car this Saturday, and head in the direc-tion of Algoa Park where the 6th Madiba Bay Car Show will be held at Otto du Plessis High School sports fields!

“We love cars and we love people. The two are inseparable and that is the heartbeat of car club. We are family orientated and members of the club use their much loved cars as vehicles in support of charity,” said Stephen Bothma, chairman of the East Cape Street Rod & Custom Car Club, the hosts of this Car Show.

Five unique cars from Bothma, one being his brand new red Ford Mustang GT convertible, will be seen at the show.

On Saturday there will be a variety of old and new cars, each with its own peculiarity of transmission, chassis or bodywork that makes them unique. Cars like streetrods, muscle cars, exotic, vintage, classic, T-bucket cars as well as off-road vehicles and extreme 4x4s will be displayed. Motorbike fans will also be in for a treat with various bikes and trikes at the show.

The Madiba Bay Car Show is sponsored by Speedyquip and hosted by East Cape Street Rod & Custom Car Club, a non-profit organisation established in 1982.

The club is known for raising funds for charity purposes and supporting old age homes, youth centres, schools, churches and animal anti-cruelty associations.

Car enthusiasts wishing to exhibit their unique wheels are welcome to do so, in fact anything on wheels that will attract the eye is welcome. The entry fee for an exhibitor is a donation of R20 or toiletries for the aged.

Terence Ellis will be the master of ceremonies keeping visitors informed as to all that is happening. Activities of the day include live performances by the popular Breë Straat band, a boerboel show dog competition, karateka to show off their skills, boeresport and lots of fun for children.

Gates open at 09:00 for the public and the entrance fee is R30 for adults and R10 for children above the age of 12 years.
