Saturday January 17th sees the International Police Association celebrating the 15th Annual Classic Car & Bike Show. The event, which started as a fundraiser, is not only one of the highlights of the IPA calendar, it has also become something of an institution amongst nostalgia buffs and fans. The show features some of the rarest and most beautiful cars and bikes in the Cape and is one of only a handful of exhibits on this scale. Tremendous growth in numbers of both exhibitors and attendees has been recorded over the years, with the biggest change coming in 2007 with the introduction of the Saturday show, thereby making this a two day event!
The IPA is an international Non-Profit organisation, proud to be able to say that we are an NGO in consultative (special) status with the economic and social council of the United Nations; in consultative status with the council of Europe and the Organisation of American States and an International NGO maintaining operational relations within UNESCO and Europol. With this proud heritage, it is important for the Western Cape Region of IPA to make a difference in our local community and this show has provided an opportunity to not only educate and entertain, but also to effect real changes in people’s lives and we are proud to say that each year, we donate thousands of Rands to worthy causes and individuals.
Saturday – Modern Classics
On the first day of the show, the exhibition will consist of vehicles which can be defined as ‘Modern Classics”. These include Hot Rods, Street Rods, souped up vehicles, racing cars and bikes, custom vehicles and motorcycles and of course, a few new cars and bikes! This is a day that will appeal to many motoring enthusiasts, but it is important to note that there are usually no really old or “conventional” Classic
vehicles on display.
Sunday – Classics
On day two of the Show, the exhibition will consist of vehicles dating from as far
back as the late 1890’s, to more recent times. These are the classics that invoke an era of elegance, a more relaxed way of life and a time when craftsmanship was an important element of vehicle design and manufacture. This is always a popular display and will appeal to anyone with a love of restored and maintained classic vehicles.
Bring the Family!
As always, we strive to make this a day that can be enjoyed by the whole family, both young and old. There will be plenty of refreshments available, with a number of food stalls to tickle the taste buds, cool drinks to banish thirst and our ever popular, well shaded beer garden. When possible, we try to supply screens for any sporting events and there is always a jumping castle to entertain the kids.
As has become the norm, there will be no on-site parking at the venue. Secure parking has been arranged at Timour Hall Primary School at the top of Timour Hall Road. Only disabled parking will be allowed on-site on a first come, first served basis, with spill-over parking in the surrounding area.
