COVID-19 NOTICE:
EVENTS POSTPONED UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2020 FOR NOW!

COVID-19 NOTICE: We have been monitoring the impact of Covid-19 over the last few weeks with anticipation. Due to the uncertainty it has become almost impossible to plan ahead. The Management Team of Cars in the Park and Management Team of POMC has therefore decided to postpone the event for now until we have more clarity on public gatherings. All bookings will be carried forward to the next event and we will keep you posted as soon as we have a decision on the new date. We appreciate the support and share in your disappointment. At this stage we feel that it is in the interest of exhibitors and visitors to postpone but you can be sure that we will have our event as soon as possible.

COVID-19 KENNISGEWING: Ons het die het impak van Covid-19 oor die laaste weke met afwagting gevolg. As gevolg van die onsekerheid is dit tans byna onmoontlik om enige planne te maak vir die toekoms. Die Bestuurspan van Cars in the Park en Bestuurspan van POMK het gevolglik besluit om die geleentheid vir die oomblik uit te stel totdat ons duidelikheid kry oor openbare byeenkomste. Alle besprekings sal na die volgende geleentheid oorgedra word sodra ‘n nuwe datum bekendgemaak kan word. Ons waardeer die ondersteuning en deel in die teleurstelling. Ons is van mening dat dit egter in die beste belang van uitstallers en besoekers is om nou uit te stel maar wees verseker daarvan dat ons die geleentheid so gou moontlik sal aanbied.

DJ RUN

A Classic Annual Motorcycle event from Pietermaritzburg to Johannesburg

The Pretoria Old Motor Club (POMC) was started in 1966 by a few old car enthusiasts who felt a need to share information, skills and parts. Today the POMC members collectively hold more than 1500 cars and motorcycles. Members of the POMC are from all walks of life and bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience in many different fields. They have a single commonality, preservation of our motoring heritage. It brings them together and it keeps them together. The POMC also runs an active calendar covering monthly meetings at the Club House, social gatherings, formal rallies of oldies and numerous social runs. The get togethers and displays are very important components of the Club’s success. The most notable display is the annual Cars in the Park staged on the first Sunday in August every year. This is the single biggest get together of like minded enthusiasts in South Africa. Hundreds of old vehicles from all over Gauteng and other parts of the country are exhibited by POMC members and other Clubs under their own banners.

Enthusiasts represent all walks of life, often with the only common thread being the internal combustion engine and its trappings.

Club members meet socially on the first Wednesday of every month. The Wednesday evening program always includes something interesting, eg. talks, demonstrations and advice on restoration etc. There is always an interesting car or motorcycle in the clubhouse. Members enjoy the stimulating company of fellow enthusiasts, exchange of ideas and tips, news of other old vehicles up for sale, where to obtain scarce spare parts or where to insure their vehicles. Members also receive a monthly newsletter with news, tips and articles. Anyone is eligible to join, with or without an old vehicle. Subscriptions are modest and are often covered by savings on insurance.

There is a definite place for the young, technology driven generation, to get involved in the movement.

During old car rallies the accuracy of the driver and the navigator is tested and not how fast the car can go. Speedometers, odometers and rev. counters are sealed and replaced by stop watches and clues en-route.

The club also boasts a very active program of social outings / get togethers every second Sunday of the month which are arranged for the whole family to enjoy. This takes the form of a display with a theme, fun run or interesting activity of some kind. This provides an opportunity to drive and enjoy your old car. Non- members or members from other clubs are always welcome at our meetings. Our second Sunday program is normally organised by different club members - for club members. It is normally a bring and braai, the club bar is open, prizes awarded and fun is had by the whole family and friends and a lovely opportunity to get to know each other..
