Camps Bay Hillclimb Commemorative Run

On the 11th of November 2012, 61 Crankers in their cars met at the Camps Bay High School rugby field to celebrate the Hillclimbs which were driven from 1917 till 1962.  The background of the 12 Apostles and Camps Bay beach was wonderful to see.  There was a festive atmosphere and the misty morning became a warm sunny day.  I went with Derek in Jon's recently restored 1959 Ford Anglia.  The car was...

MG Car Club Cape Centres Gathering Oudtshoorn

The Cape Town MG Car Club organises delightful trips to scenic regions of the Cape. In October 2007 the destination was Oudtshoorn. We took the N1 over the mountains to Worcester and turned off to Montague. The R62 from Montague is a quiet back road to Oudtshoorn. The Klein Karoo scenery is different from the busy N2 along the coast. We arrived at Calitzdorp later than the other cars because we...
