Vintage and Classic Cars, Tractors and Motorcycles
Napier was truly blessed with excellent weather for the 2016 Patatfees. Both Friday and Saterday delivered beautiful, wind free, sunny weather that was enjoyed by spectators and entrants alike.
Fourteen vintage tractors, eighteen vintage / classic vehicles and fourteen Harley Davidson motorcycles entered the static display and activities for the day.
Luhann Odendaal se magtige 1948 enkel silinder Lanz 60 is as wenner in die trekker afdeling aangewys, met Johan Groenewald se McCormick B450 van 1964 in die tweede plek. ‘n Maklikke keuse was dit beslis nie aangesien almal pragtig vertoon het.
In the vintage car division, the 1928 Willys Whippet, belonging to Mauritz Meiring from Bonnievale, took top honors with the 1948 Dodge Fargo truck of Nico Swart in second place.
Die beoordeling van die klasieke motor afdeling het vir nog hoofbrekings gesorg. Die Langebaan Classic Car Club arriveer met sewe pragtig gerestoreerde motors, nl., twee Chevrolet's, twee Pontiac's, 'n Studibaker, 'n Wolseley en 'n MG B GT. Die een so mooi soos die ander.!! Ronnie Grace with his 1958 Pontiac Strato Chief and Andre Eygelaar with his 1962 Wolseley 16/60 took fist and second place respectively. A further two prizes were awarded in this category, being the 1966 Puch 4x4 belonging to Phillipus Swart, and the 1971 Ford Capri from Sarel Vermeulen. Both from Bredasdorp.
The spectators at the Patatfees will, long remember the classic sound of a Harley Davidson motorcycle engine. Fourteen mighty Harleys having a "roaring restart" in front of the pavilion, is truly sensational. Mandy Stahnke's "Sporty" and Dennis Lategan's "Road King" were awarded best Harleys on display for this year.
The Patatfees committee wants to thank every entrant / participant for attending the festival and trust that they enjoyed every moment. We look forward to welcoming you back next year and hope that someone will motivate the Overberg Classic Car Group to join us.
