INNER CITY MUSCLE CAR SHOW
22 August 2012|
days one often has to think twice when reading the name of an
event or car show. Sadly not all events live up to their name.
But after attending the Inner City Muscle Car show last week Saturday,
18th August 2012, they could not have named it any better. A parking
lot in the middle of the Cape Town CBD, filled with hot American
Muscle Cars! This was a car show where the cars were the stars.
The cars did all the talking and there was no need for any additional
thrills and spills.
Now when I mentioned this event on facebook last week, I said
that everyone has a little muscle car love in them, at least I
would think so. Because no matter what you fancy these days, old
skool American V8 muscle will just never… get old. The sound,
the sheer size, the chrome, the sharp lines which lead to curvy
corners… which real petrol head could deny that kind of
60’s Styled stars and stripes were the flavor of the day.
Cheque skirts and polka dot shirts, pigtails and bright red lipstick…
the only thing that was missing was Betty Boop herself. I must
admit it was revitalizing. For once, I felt like the one who was
sticking out. But I didn’t care; there were plenty of precious
metal around to be shot. Unfortunately, I don’t know how
this happened, but my camera batteries seemed to have died sooner
than expected and I was forced to use Taariq’s little pocket
camera, which also died a “James Dean” death on me.
None the less I managed to get a few snaps in before it was game
The Shelby GT500 Eleanor. One of the most famous muscle car's
from our time made famous by the movie, Gone in 60 Seconds. Always
a winner no matter what!
Chevy Bel Air fitted with the perfect matching wheel!
The Pontiac Trans Am. I can't help but think of Burt Reynolds
when I see this car...
Lincoln Continental - I think the Grim Reaper would fancy this...
and that's not because you can fit about 10 bodies in the boot...
A true South African muscle... bakkie! The Ford Cortina. This
was a very fine example of a 2.5L V6 model.
Thurteen Worx was also in attendance with their custom made bikes.
Probably the second most famous type of American car, infamous
for their sideways action and flying abilities, this decommissioned
police car clearly made it out of the states unscathed.
Like a Boss! Nuff said...
