Chev - 1957, Westrand Car Show



Of all the American marques, Chevrolet has stood out for over a century as one of the great car manufacturers of all time. Established by Louis Chevrolet and William Durant the marque, together with Buick, Cadillac, Oldsmobile and Pontiac became the backbone of General Motors.

Without a doubt the 1950’s and early 1960’s were the golden years for the brand. Today, sadly, the brand has lost ground to imports from Europe, Japan and Korea. International design has also been a factor in stripping brands of their identity.

The Westrand Car Show is a Classic Car Show. TO QUALIFY FOR ENTRANCE TO A COMPETITIVE CLASS, VEHICLES MUST HAVE BEEN BUILT OR REGISTERED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 1999 OR EARLIER. Only the first 180 QUALIFYING vehicles will receive a commemorative medallion. Any newer vehicle is welcome to be entered as a “non-competitive vehicle” and to be placed on show just because of “the spirit of motoring” and the desire to share the joy that your wheels bring you, with all of the rest of us. See the list of classes below and the entrance form.

Non-Competitive vehicles may enter at the gate on the day.

Die Westrand Car Show is ‘n klassieke motorskou. OM TE KWALIFISEER VIR TOEGANG tot ‘n kompeterende klas, moet voertuie vir die eerste keer in 1999 of vroeër gebou of geregistreer word. Slegs die eerste 180 KWALIFISERENDE voertuie sal ‘n gedenkmedalje ontvang. Enige nuwer voertuig is welkom om as ‘n “nie-mededingende voertuig” ingeskryf te word, en dit net te danke aan” die gees van motor” en die begeerte om die vreugde wat u wiele vir u bring, saam met ons almal te deel. Kyk na die lys van klasse hierbo en die ingangsvorm.

Nie-mededingende voertuie mag op die dag by die hek inteken.

The Westrand Car Show is an alcohol-free event and any person found to have in their possession or to be consuming alcohol will not be admitted and/or will be asked to leave the premises of Dr. Havinga School.  

Die Westrand Car Show is ‘n alkoholvrye gebeurtenis, en enige persoon wat bevind dat hy in besit is en/of alkohol inneem, sal nie toegelaat word nie en/of gevra sal word om die perseel van die Dr. Havinga skool te verlaat.
