Rassie's pictures at 65 and born in 1960.

Post by RASSIE » Mon 13 Jun 2016, 20:28

Rassie V8 the "V8 Legend speak out".
Walk with me in my 65 years as tribute to my love for V8 cars and S.A.!
Many will remember S.A. as a Super V8 "Apartheid" country. We were never apart but all against criminals!! The criminal’s were very rare compare to now!!
I had "Many friends of race and customers also with V8's and they were never mentioned.D: D
Many pictures from Klerksdorp where I was born and live until 22+/- years back when moving to Amanzimtoti as it was a must. I always want my kids to be close to the blue water and always have a holiday. :lol: :lol:
I met Farouk when I was still an apprentice Electrician and help him with an earth leakage tripping in his new house. I was picked up with a Chevy Corvette and drop off with a super fast Merc. V8.

My Top Black friends had Cadillac, Mercury's, Fairlane's and convertible V8, 65 Mustang's.
I had customers and friends from black panel beaters, undertaker and Taxi bosses. All were very V8 crazy. This was “Apartheid". What a joke! :lol: :lol:

Awsome pics you have. I must do the same as I have tons from Tarlton in the 80's

I recognised Andre Brinks Mustang Mach1 428 , his dad had Fairmont GTs (Brinks Panelbeaters Krugersdorp)
The Fiat I also have photos, it had a turbo conversion back then, If it is the same one it belonged to a guy ,cant remember his name but he had a workshop Snaptune in Krugersdorp, he unfortunately passed away years ago.
The Fiat was a quick car back then

I had a very bad experience with Farouk when i bought my last car from them a few months ago.


They sold me something that I discovered wasn't there. I tried raising it with his son, he washed his hands of it. So I called him directly, he told me to Fuck Off on the phone this after spending R1.2m with him.

i then put the story on social media and every forum i could find, the son then agreed that the repay me half the cost to purchase the item that wasn't actually on the car.

Never again.

Some people let money get to their head. i also deal with clients daily and if it was me i would have just apologised and paid the R12k to put the item on the car and keep a customer happy. Telling customers to fuck off after they spend money on something you claim, which turns out isn't there is bullshit.

Wow, respect lost from my side for the man then. It's sad when your heros and idols of the day turn into real assholes.

Yes money do change people!!
hitlers revenge my late Grand Father had a Ford like yours and for only R.2 he bought one spare car from a public auction. He towed it to the farm close to Hartbeesfontein.
The Mercury Cougar I swopped a friend for my 74 Ranchero 6 and some cash. I still miss that car.
More pictures to follow and enjoy.
Time have almost destroyed some pictures. :(
