If you are interested in vintage and classic vehicles, then pay a visit to the St. Croix Motor Museum on Mowbray Street in Newton Park. The Museum displays a private collection of vintage and classic vehicles dating back to 1901. About 80 cars of various categories are displayed ranging from the early 20’s to the late 60’s. Many artifacts related to the motor-industry are also on display. Spares for many models are also located through our wide club member network.
The Museum was purely founded to collect data and to preserve our country’s rich heritage in the motor industry .It was common knowledge that Port Elizabeth was the “Detroit” of South Africa in it’s heyday.
