1972 Ford Ranchero - Dark Horse

Owners : Damien de Waal

Damien found the Ranchero in Hermanus. It initially looked decent however when he decided to jack the car up the jack just broke through the floor and the car stayed exactly where it was. It was all just fiberglass under the car as all the steel had rusted away. Damien was lucky enough to find a replacement body that had no rust on it whatsoever from an area in the Karoo.

1940/41 Ford PickUp - Pist N Broke

Riaan goes on to explain:

I like to tell people that I grew up in a muscle car/V8 house and it was always very exciting when my dad came to fetch us from school driving his V8 cars. My dad owned Holden Monaro’s and Ford Fairmont’s since I can remember. He restored cars all his life, making parts, fabricating body panels where the rust took over. From a very early age, he involved my brothers and I in all of his projects; rebuilding engines, panel beating and spray painting. I bought my first car when I was 18 for a R1000, a 1971 Ford Fairlane 500.

1948 Ford F100 Pick-up - Big Block Baby!

Herman says:

“From as far back as I can remember, I have always loved old cars and have always wanted to own what I call a ‘“knop truck’” rather than live on the beach and own a Bugatti Veyron. In the past, I did not have the money to fund my dream project, so I started saving and keeping an eye on Gumtree. The original plan was to buy a ready-built vehicle as the nature of my daily work does not allow a lot of free time. However, things did not quite work out that way. I found my Ford truck on Gumtree and realised that this would be a bit of a project.
