The Classic Car Show Gears Up for 7 July


Expect to see a staggering variety of classic cars to show up for the mid-winter rendition of The Classic Car Show at Nasrec Expo Centre on July 7th.

Several brands and models celebrate important milestones this year, including Mini, which turns 60. First launched in August 1959, the little car quickly became a global icon. It was launched in South Africa late in 1959, and Minis were actually built in South Africa (in Cape Town) until the early '80s. Expect to see a large contingent of first-generation Minis at Nasrec on the 7th of July.

Joining the party will be a number Ford Capris, with the stylish "mini-Mustang" from the blue-oval celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. How many Peranas will be at Nasrec? We can't wait to see...

The Ford Capri celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Expect to see a number of these cars at Nasrec for the show.

And who can forget the Datsun SSS, also celebrating its 50th birthday this year. Expect to see a big number of these cracking little sedans at Nasrec, some stock... and some not at all!

As per usual, there will be a large number of American muscle cars and some British beauties, too.
