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.
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.
The 2nd Century Classic Car Run was held on 23rd October, 2016. The event was run by the Triumph Sports Car Club, sponsored by Crossley & Webb in association with Century City and Western Province Motor Club.
The event had a century theme running throughout with the total age of the car and driver had to equal or exceed a century (100 years). The number of participants in the event was limited to 100 cars. From the meeting point at Century City, cars had to travel a route of 100 km to the destination at the Killarney race track.
The run was good fun, especially ending it off with a lap around the race track in a classic car. What an experience!
All profits from the event will be donated to the Red Cross Children’s Hospital.
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.
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.
