The third annual Oily Rag Run followed a route from the Franschhoek Motor Museum at Lórmarins to Crossley & Webb. Competitors dragged their original rusty and crusty pre-1965 vehicles from their barns and celebrated feral (natural) motoring. The day ended off with a road house styled lunch and a live band.
A Storytellers evening with a little more than a story. We had Kingsley Holgate sharing some of his wild African adventures as well as an African inspired photographic exhibition presented by Karen and Chelsea Barrow. To go with the African theme, there were tribal dancers, dancing with only the headlights of the Land Rovers illuminating them. It was a taste of how magical an adventure with Kingsley could actually be.
The launch of the Shelby brand in South Africa has been a wonderful experience. We had an amazing night with guests, clients and press alike. Keith Criswell, the Director of Shelby Performance Parts at Shelby America was present to officiate the proceedings and announce that South Africa would be receiving 5 of only 50 Terlingua models in the world. Crossley & Webb will be the hub for Shelby South Africa with a Modshop for the conversions.
We were honoured to have Rory Byrne Formula 1 race car designer at our Storytellers event. Rory is most famous for being the chief designer at the Benetton and Scuderia Ferrari Formula One teams. This Storytellers ran slightly differently, it was in aid to raise funds for Thrive Hout Bay environmental and educational NPO. Guests were welcomed by comedian Alan Committie followed by a charity Auction with Joey Burke. The night ended with Rory Byrne Q&A with motoring commentator Roger McCleerey.
Crossley & Webb recently invited our loyal Sales, Service, Storage, Detailing & Truth Coffee Bar clients to a private track day. Four hours of driving was followed by a gourmet braai alongside the lake.
