The Oldies Become the Pride-and-Joy

Many of these are the collector items of today. Some have survived the melting pots of the recyclers, some were tucked away in a save place, same came down the family as an inheritance, many are found in an appalling state of decay.

Neither here nor there, motor vehicles can be great investments and have a very high value in the monetary sense or be just a nice, well restored old vehicle with fair value.

It is in the presence of these oldies that one will find the enthusiast like the members of the Pretoria Old Motor Club. We hunt the vehicles down, find them in bushes, as heaps of rust or in a reasonable condition and lovingly over many moons rebuild them piece by piece.

Once they are back to life, they are shown with pride and joy to those who whisper “when I was young” or “I remember so-and-so had one just like that when I was a kid”. And many stand in awe at the skills and craftsmanship to bring it all to life again.

Preservation, passion and fool hardiness are the underpinning reasons for getting involved in old vehicle collection and restoration.
