Sports and Specials owners enjoy horsepower of a different sort

The group visited a museum and a polocrosse tournament.

CARS and horses proved a lively mix when the Sports and Specials car enthusiasts headed inland to the Rust Bucket Oribi Engine Museum in the Oribi Gorge area for their August outing on Sunday last week.

The Rust Bucket shares top-class facilities and grounds with the Paddock Polocrosse Club, which was hosting its annual three-day tournament from Friday to Sunday last week.

The museum was open to the public throughout the tournament, so visiting car enthusiasts were able to take a look at the stationary engines, vintage transport, antique agricultural equipment, the odd rusty bucket and many other mechanical wonders housed in the museum.

Sports and Specials arrive at the Rust Bucket Oribi Engine Museum, in the Paddock Polocrosse Club grounds.

After a tour of the Rust Bucket they settled down to a tasty breakfast roll, courtesy of the Bucket Bites kitchen and a morning of watching the exciting polocrosse action, culminating in the third of three international test matches between the South African and Zambian U-14 teams.

Sports and Specials is an informal group of car owners who meet once a month for a breakfast run.

Anyone with a sports car, be it vintage, classic or contemporary, or any other interesting vehicle of any age, is welcome to join the group. Contact Bill at 084 4110044 for details or to join the Sports and Specials Whatsapp group.
