Two Decades of Excellence
Having spanned over two decades, the Classic Car and Bike Show has etched its place as a 'must-do' event on the Cape Town calendar. Originating in 1999, the show's inaugural edition in January 2000 featured only a handful of clubs. However, the winning formula of showcasing classic vehicles in a vibrant atmosphere quickly garnered popularity. Over the years, the event expanded, evolving into a two-day extravaganza in 2006.

Modern Classics and Future Classics
In a strategic move to appeal to a broader audience, the organizers decided to extend the event to two days. The first day is dedicated to Modern and Future Classics, attracting younger generations with an interest in the evolving world of automotive design and technology. Vintage Classics take center stage on the second day, paying homage to the timeless appeal of cars from bygone eras.
