The fourth annual Oily Rag Run took place on Sunday 22 October and was another great success. The Oily rag celebrates unrestored vehicles pre-1965. Eighteen cars, a motorcycle and a Vespa were flagged away from the start by FMM’s Wayne Harley to enjoy a 125-km route taking in Klapmuts and Windmeul before passing through the Perdeberg towards the West Coast then down towards Durbanville and Milnerton before joining Marine Drive into Cape Town and the finish at the C&W showroom. The Oily Rag is always a highlight of our calendar and this year didn’t disappoint.
We were pleasantly surprised when BMW lifestyle confirmed that they would be using our showroom for one of their latest campaigns. This heritage collection is right up our alley, mustaches and all! We love seeing the behind the scenes action and have been waiting a while to share some of it with you. Thanks to RockStarCars and everyone involved to make this happen.
Crossley & Webb had the amazing opportunity of hosting the first Cars & Coffee event by Last Lion Lifestyle for 2017. A great group of people with some spectacular cars taking over the Cape Town roads and the hills coming alive with the sounds of supercars! A beautiful drive with our first pit stop at Grabouw BP garage, with our next stop on the bridge at Theewaterskloof dam. The final drive took us through the spectacular Fraschhoek pass and mountains to end it off at the ideal destination of the Franschhoek Motor Museum. A fun and exciting day had by all. Crossley & Webb look forward to partaking in the next Cars & Coffee and would like to Thank all who joined us and to Cars & Coffee by Last Lion Lifestyle for inviting us to be a part of such a memorable day.
Crossley & Webb attended the Crankhandle Club’s Kalk Bay run to support the majestic 1913 Cadillac 30 currently for sale in our showroom. The veteran run is for vehicles 100 years or older. For the first time, all competitors met the requirement! With approximately 15 vehicles in attendance, cars and motorcycles.
Wayne Harley from took part in the Kalk Bay Veteran Run riding a 1917 Triumph Model H. Also known as the Type H and The Trusty, a total of 57 000 Model H’s were made from 1915 until production ended in 1923.
It was a beautiful Sunday morning and the competitors were flagged off at the Crankhandle Club in Wynberg after coffee and light banter. The group stopped over in Kalk Bay for a brief pit stop and ended their run at Jubilee Square in Simons Town. All of the entrants completed their trip to and from Simons Town flawlessly.
We hope that 2018 will pull in more veteran vehicles as spectators. It truly is a unique experience.
After the launch of Cars & Coffee in Johannesburg, we ended the year in style with an exhibition-style event in Cape Town. Cars & Coffee and Last Lion Lifestyle teamed up for a thrilling end of the year party. Supercars and exotic cars alike gathered at UCT’s upper campus for quite a spectacle. We teamed up with Truth. Coffee Roasting to provide the much-needed coffee for the mornings gathering. It was amazing to be a part of the first Cars and Coffee in Cape Town and we’ll definitely be back for more.
