|Wijnland Motor Museum Cape Town|
What drives people to collect old wrecks and vintage cars?
I can understand vintage cars – yes – they are normally kept in tip-top condition and invoke feelings of passion for a bygone era when life was simpler and time was not ticking against the clock.
But wrecks and rust? Hobbies take on all forms and they bring pleasure to the person who pursues them so we cannot judge what inspires some and not others.
I love visiting this this old car museum – it is indeed the owners passion and a photographers delight!
The Wijnland Auto Museum displays South Africa’s largest collection of classic and vintage automobiles. It is also ideally positioned at the ‘gateway’ to the winelands. The Wijnland Auto Museum is in Joostenbergvlakte and getting there involves taking exit 34 off the N1; taking a left and then a right, look out for Cape Garden Centre and drive past this. The Garden Centre is also a stop for those who are peckish after the visit to the museum.
