A ‘scrapyard’ of old cars on the N1 near Cape Town is actually a museum
I’d driven past this landmark often, usually heading north on the N1. I’d always just assumed, like many do, that it was a scrapyard. That impression was created by the large number of old cars slowly succumbing to “tin worm”. It wasn’t until an aircraft appeared, poised in a landing pose, that I wanted to find out more. So I went to investigate the Wijnland Auto Museum. Zig-zagging through the back of smallholdings and farms in the Brackenfell area, I am not convinced that I am in the correct area. Then I see it … a pair of 1960s Americana planted nose first into the ground herald my arrival at the right place.
