This year’s Whales and Wheels Classic Car Show is almost upon us. As part of the annual Whale Festival in the coastal town, the show will take place on the Hermanus Primary School grounds on Saturday 3 October and will once again feature a mix of vehicles from years past together with a model car display, a working (and noisy) scale V8 engine, radio-controlled aircraft and, for the first time, a ‘live’ model railway. Full-size exhibits will include John ‘Rusty’ Crowhurst’s monster 27-litre Meteor along with displays from many of the Cape’s leading car clubs. Admission price is R20, under 12s free, while participants and passengers also enter for free. For further information, e-mail Piet Haumann at haumannonrus@gmail.com or phone 072 488 5741. MM
