Westrand Car Show - 1959 Rover 90

1961 Rover P4 – Frikkie van Wijk

Frikkie van Wijk has entered his 1961 Rover 100 which was one of a series of variants of the Rover P4. The P4 was produced by the Rover Company from 1949 until 1964. There were eight variants – The 60, 75, 90, 100, 105, 105 S, 105 R and the 110.

Food and Drink

The P4 range was replaced by the P5, known as the Rover 80 and then the Rover 2000.

Note the rear doors are “suicide doors” – in other words rear hinged as opposed to the normal front hinged doors.

Frikkie’s pics were all taken at night so I have used a 1959 Rover as the Feature Image. We’ll take new pics on the day of the show.

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.

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.
