Annual Car Show - 9 June 2018

The following article was written by Fred Rasher in the Autonews:

"An often heard statement is that good things come in small packages.   This is certainly true in the case of the Vryheid Car Show, held this year on 9th June 2018.
It's always a mystery to me how a small town in the midlands of KZN can have such a varied selection of veteran and vintage cars on display.   Fords were obviously the chosen brand of the locals in years gone by.
I remember the editor of the old SAVVA magazine, Automobilist of about 30 years ago once writing about Fords and Chevs and how you could ascertain the political leanings of the drivers:  UP supporters had Chevs and National Party supporters invariably had Fords!
What makes this show so special is that it's not just a one day show.   The festivities start the night before at the Vryheid Club's clubhouse where they have a lovely dinner for all the members and visitors that have arrived from afar, and then after the show on Saturday evening at the clubhouse another dinner is organised for visitors and members.   You get a complete weekend package.
The standard of restoration of the Model T and the A Fords that appear each year is of an exceptionally high standard.   Originality is obviously a keyword in Vryheid.   I would recommend this show to anyone who is need of a weekend away.   The various B&B's in the vicinity of the showgrounds are not expensive and don't seem to overcharge visitors for that weekend.  To the committee and members that make this show possible my congratulations for a job well done.  -   FRED"
