CIAO Club – Giro Dei Vigneti – Meet and greet morning – Franschhoek Motor Museum

The Franschhoek Motor Museum recently  hosted the start of the Giro Dei Vigneti organised by  The CIAO club (Classic Italian Auto Owners). Cape based owners of interesting Italian cars were invited to meet and greet the CIAO club members participating on the run who were mostly based in Gauteng with a view to forming a Cape branch.

We took along a very rare Detomaso Mangusta which is the only example in African and once belonged to Motorcycle World Champion Jim Redman as well as the only GTC spec Ferrari 575 Maranello in South Africa, both of which are for sale at Crossley & Webb.

Franschhoek Motor Museum curator Wayne Harley treated the guests to a “Under the Bonnet” tour which explored the rich history of the cars at the museum after which the week long Giro Dei Vigneti run kicked off

The 5th Annual Oily Rag Run – Oct 2018

The fifth annual Oily Rag Run was held on the 21st of October 2018 and reverted to the original route from Crossley & Webb in Gardens Cape Town to the Franschhoek Motor Museum via various stops to collect items for a picnic lunch to be held on the FMM lawns.

This run is for unrestored cars older than 50 years and is growing in popularity each year with many new entrants in 2018 such as the 1948 Dodge of the Long family (who won the “Skoroskoro prize” for the “tatiest” most original car), the 1958 Karmann Ghia of Toy De Meillon, the Sunbeam Alpine of Adrian Morris, the Wolseley of Pat Coyne, the Austin 110 of Michael Solomon, the Ford Model A of Viv James, the Bentley MK 6  of Tim Reddell, the Mercedes Benz 190 Ponton of Peter Lamond, Jean Viljoen in his magnificent 1958 VW Samba bus and a beautiful Porsche 356 C Coupe of Susan Reutter who must have set a new speed record for the Oily Rag Run.

The reappearance of Oily Rag regulars was welcomed with Dave Alexander featuring in his 1932 Lagonda for the first time since 2014, Jason Furness in his 1958 VW Split screen bus (which was celebrating its 60th birthday) and “Mordecai” the 1948 Chevrolet Fleetmaster (no 8) driven by Harvey Metcalf with Prof. Peter Spargo (the second owner who used it regularly until 1986 ….and who’s father purchased Mordecai new ) along for the ride.

Wayne Harley of the Franschhoek Motor Museum took the overall win on his 1922 AJS motorcycle based on criteria set by Oily Rag “oracle” Dickon Daggitt

The Simola Hill Climb record breaker

We’re proud to be associated with Andre Bezuidenhout in the 2018 Simola Hill Climb. His intention was to break his previous record set in 2017 with his 1989 Dallara F189 Formula 1 car. Knowing that Andre doesn’t do anything in half measures, we knew that we needed to get behind him this year. Andre achieved his goal with a 35.528 second over his previous record of 37.807 seconds!

Cars and Coffee Cape Town Dec 17′

We ended 2017 by joining Last Lion’s Cars and Coffee run. It’s always a good time meeting with like minded individuals and taking a drive around this beautiful city. The cars we took: Bentley Azure Mulliner, Aston Martin Rapide S and a Mclaren 650S Spider. It was not the biggest turn out due to many people being out of the country but nevertheless, there was amazing cars that joined. We’re looking forward to the runs to come in 2018.

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!
