GSM Dart and Flamingo

The GSM Dart, generally known as the only true South African production car, first broke cover towards the end of 1957. And not only was it designed and built by South Africans, but it was a little sports car that turned out to be years ahead of its time......Read more in an article on CarTorque

GSM Flamingo

In the early 1960's a group of enthusiasts decided that South Africa needed a sports car. Starting down in Cape Town, they firstly created the Dart - a two seater with a removeable hard top. This was followed by a fixedhead coupe called the Flamingo. Both models were unique and very advanced for their day - a tubular chassis and a fibreglass body. The designers and builders were fundamentally all "boy racers" and quite willing to sacrifice comfort for performance. Using mainly Ford parts with a very warm Ford Taunus engine with a number 7 cam and rock hard suspension, they created the Flamingo with a licencing kerb weight of 712 kg, and a genuine top speed of over 100 mph.

T70 spyder inspired scratchbuild in SA

I am building up a self designed space frame two seater mid engine sports car from scratch. I will use it on the road for fun and possibly do some track racing, in our "classic" class out here. I decided to follow a car that is accepted as looking good to everyone, that is, the Lola T70 spyder. Realy .. a very good read.

The Protea - the first SA produced sports car.

The Protea is often overlooked in the light of the Dart, but it in fact beat the world famous GSM to the line as the first SA produced sports car and led the way in fibreglass car body manufacture.......Read more in an article on

The Wishart's Ford GT40 Project and Cobra

As the new owner of a second hand Shamrock Cobra, I joined the KZN Cobra GT40 Club in 1998, and was soon exposed to a motoring phenomenon of a different kind. The Ford GT40! Handsome as they are, and in spite of the illustrious history of the GT40, I was happy to admire these beasts from a distance. After all, I was still a very content Cobra man.
