WHACKED BY THE CITROëN TRACTION AVANT
The Renault Celtaquatre or CV8 was manufactured from 1934 to 1938. It had a 4-cylinder 1500 cc engine and later came in standard two-tone colours. You had to pay extra for one colour. It was slotted in above the cheaper and more basic Renault JuvaquatreWorsbroodjies & Footlongs Poeding en Koek
All good mechanics will tell you that the key to a well performing engine is timing, and the stories about setting the timing on some engines are legendary.
In another sense timing of the launch of the Celtaquatre could not have been worse. It was launched at the same time as Citroen launched their famous Traction Avant – a car that went on to become one of the legends of the world of motoring.
With war clouds looming the coupe model was dropped in 1938 and during 1939 the balance of the Celtaquatre stock (except 13) were either sold off or taken over by the French Military. Those last 13 were altered and sold off as part of the Novaquatre model range.
The names, models, engines and variants of motorcars go on and on. Perhaps you have an old Vintage Veteran Classic, Different, Unique, One of a kind Car, Hot Rod, Pick Up or Motorbike. You should enter the 2019 Westrand Car Show – Its a Classic
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. Remember its a fun day, so don’t take it too seriously.
Non-Competitive vehicles may enter at the gate on the day.
