The eighth annual charity Scottburgh Classic Car Show took place at the Scottburgh High School on Sunday 16 July. The weather was good this year and consequently more than 5000 people arrived to drool over the 450 pre-1975 classic cars and motorcycles that were on display.

The moving parades included motorcycles and cars of special interest, as well as about forty Ford automobiles, which was this year’s featured marque. But undoubtedly, the highlight was the Fun & Fashion Parade in which beautifully dressed Stiletto models arrived in magnificent automobiles to pose for the dozens of clicking cameras. The amusement was provided by the Six Plus One cabaret artists who brought much hilarity to the parade with their various song & dance routines.

The two main beneficiaries of the show, Angels Care KZN and Action for the Blind & Disabled were present on the showfield and have benefitted greatly, together with other local charitable organizations.

A cold sunny morning welcomed classic cars to the sixth Scottburgh Classic Car Show (SCCS) at the Scottburgh High School (SHS) on Sunday 19th July. By the time visitors began to arrive, it was warm with no wind and remained so throughout the day.

Nevertheless, a large amount of money was raised for the nominated charities of the Show and details will be published in the local press.

The balmy atmosphere created by the music of the 50s & 60s filled the showground with nostalgia and happiness. The raised Tea Garden and Beer Tent enabled visitors to relax with their refreshments while looking down on all the activity below as they watched all the magnificent vehicles drive slowly past. The food stalls were kept busy while kiddies enjoyed steam train rides, the shooting tunnel and jumping castle.

The great American classics were featured this year and these huge automobiles adorned with their tail-fins and sparkling chrome entertained the crowds in the Concours d'Èlegance Parade, carrying some of Hollywood's famous personalities such as Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton, Marilyn Monroe and the Rhinestone Cowboy. The "History of my Car Parade" was both interesting and humourous as the MC, Pat McKrill, interviewed the owners about their pride & joy. Next year's show will take place on 17 July 2016 at the Scottburgh high School.

BRAND NEW JAGUAR F-TYPE AT SCOTTBURGH SHOW | 9 July 2013

It has taken Jaguar nearly 40 years to build a sports car that would succeed the iconic E-type of the 1960s. There have been several false starts but this sensational new car is now finally here and two examples will be at the Scottburgh Classic Car show.

The V6 and V8 convertibles will conclude the Jaguar parade which will showcase Jaguar's sporting history with the 1939 SS100, the voluptuous XKs, the sensuous E-type, the Le Mans winning C-type and D-type and the many luxurious saloons.

Come to the show and see these great rare cars.
