We visited the Hoeka Toeka Car Show - 26 July 2014

The Hoeka Toeka Car Show in Piet Retief.
Another outing well supported with 14 members - 12 vintage and classic vehicles.   The weather was a perfect winters' day.   Over and above the cars that two members, Johan Horn and Pieter Colloty displayed, were two outstandingly restored stationary engines, which drew a great deal of interest.
The show was fielded at the Piet Retief rugby grounds and one must say lends itself ideally to this type of display.   The club facilities were of excellent standard as well as the catering of various foods.
Numerous car dealers and stalls were on display with their products.   Credit must be givien to the young Hoeka Toeka Organisers for the great effort on this day as can be seen in the photographs.
The stalwarts of the club, both Kobus Botha and Paul Mouton, displayed numerous vintage and classic cars at the show.
The support of the sponsors for various prizes was outstanding with a number of out members taking home some wonderful items or prizes.
Father time was again calling and we had to make our way back home.   The cars performed well on the round trip of 200km's in as much as a challenge was laid down by Harry Heyns to surpass all Model A Fords on performance.
