SHOW INTRODUCTION

Ever since the very first car in 1886, when Karl Benz introduced his motor tricycle, the world has been fascinated by the automobile. During its evolution we have seen motorcars which are unforgettable, unreliable, functional, luxurious, breathtakingly beautiful and downright ugly. Today cars are technological marvels but unfortunately the vast majority are designed by computers and all look very similar.

Peter Fielding, a local resident, believed that local enthusiasts should be able to enjoy their classic cars without having to drive all the way to Durban every month to join one of the city's many car clubs and so the Scottburgh Classic Car Club (SCCC) was founded on the 8th of September 2007.

Having been to all the major classic car shows both in South Africa and in the western world, Peter felt there was an opportunity to stage a classic car show in the town, and in August 2010, the first Scottburgh Classic Car Show was held, organized by the SCCC at the Scottburgh Country Club. However, the Show moved to a larger location, the Scottburgh High School, in 2015. The Show is for those who wish to recall those magical days when the automobile was not only a means of transport but was also considered a piece of art, a status symbol, a fashion statement.

Classic car enthusiasts are invited to bring and display their automobiles and motorcycles produced prior to 1975. Clubs are encouraged to park together and to display their banners and gazebo if they wish - this space can be booked prior to the Show. In addition to these classic cars and bikes, specific car clubs and supercars may be invited by "Special Invitation".

Space for trailers will be provided and special parking will be available on the Show field for the disabled.

The Scottburgh Classic Car Show is an event that not only aims to provide a fun-filled day for classic car enthusiasts and general public, but also provides a golden opportunity to raise money for local charities and public service organisations.

FEATURED MARQUE

The featured marque at the ninth Scottburgh Classic Car Show will be the ever popular Morris.

The Morris Motor Company was formed way back in 1919 and it wasn’t long before it had a large slice of the British automobile market. Manufacturing ceased in 1984 but not before millions of cars had been produced, the most popular being the Morris 1000.

This small economical family car was spacious and easy to drive. It was produced from 1948 for 23 years and over one and a half million were sold. It has a huge following amongst classic car enthusiasts worldwide and many examples will be on display at the SCCS on Sunday 8 July 2018 at the Scottburgh High School.
