What a magnificent exhibition. Pity we can’t see all the cars but i must mention the name of Cheslin Ruiters our guide. His knowledge of the cars as well as his general knowledge plus his passion and friendliness made this tour even more special. I do hope management and Dr Rupert appreciate this person because it is people like him that make the museum even more attractive. Thank you again.

Most breath taking experience of my life. As car lover, it’s heaven, really wish I could have seen all of the car. Regardless, best day of my life. 1984 Ferrari 288 GTO… Beast. Hats off to all the employees of the museum and the Rupert family for keeping such a beautiful collect as meticulous as they are.

In the mid-1980’s I needed a secure home for a bicycle that has significant historic value for South Africa and was pleased that the Heidelberg Transport Museum agreed to look after it for us. I was very happy when the Museum subsequently acquired two or three similarly significant bicycles and a tricycle. It was a great relief to learn that the machines were not sold to a foreign country but brought to FMM.

I have visited FMM twice and not been able to view them, yet have good reason to believe that these treasures are still in safe keeping at FMM.

Their history relates to the development of human powered land vehicles going back at least a century, to world records set by inventive South Africans in the 1930’s and again in the 1990’s. The machines at FMM relate to the days before the first Argus Cycle Tour (now the world renown Cape Town Cycle Tour) that had several social upliftment objectives in transportation, heath, the ecology and scientific endeavour.

As the founding chairman of the Western Province Pedal Power Association in 1976 (now PPA), co-founder of the Cape Town Cycle Tour and activist for human powered transportation I would welcome, as I approach 80, the opportunity to discuss their future with FMM.

As a commercial photographer who has a passion for cars, this place was like heaven on earth. All the staff went the extra mile to make our experience something to remember. Thank you to everyone and thank you for allowing us to photograph this awesome collection of classic cars. We’ll be back for more.
