There is nothing like an annual gathering of automotive enthusiasts, especially on the South African scene because guess what we have been chatting about it for a year. Now everyone that has attended a car show at Nasrec Expo Centre will know it’s nothing short of amazing, Paulo and his team from Classic Cars have ensured an optimal experience for all car lovers at this prime venue. I have always been invited to these events and haven’t missed a single one, that’s all because of the quality you can expect on the day. The German vs Japan Car Festival that happens annually is big on the event calendar and despite the weather it’s always packed.
During the build up to the event the unveiling of few rides were spoken about on trending social networks. So even before you even got to experience you were already part of the festivities whether you liked or not. This year’s show weather was great, in the never ending queue to enter the event I could already see the potential that was looming beyond Nasrec’s walls. I shouldn’t fail to mention although the car scene may find the automotive showdown to be more stance related, there is another type of auto thing going which is surrounded more around your old school classic muscle cars which we didn’t dwell into. What I had come for was outside close to the water feature area; although I had searched for the show grounds there was no feeling to describe how I felt when I was in the mix.
It was like ants around a big ant hill, buzzing with constant movement of feet. Which wasn’t surprise considering all the beautiful metal on display. The day couldn’t have gone better; I was really inspired by the quality that came out to play and this also shows how the bar has been raised and also set for next year’s event. I also need to extend a great amount of gratitude to Above The Law crew and Classic Cars for making the event happen every year without a hitch. See you guys next year.
