Franschhoek Motor Museum

The FMM seems like the work of a man with too much time on his hands - but pulls together as a stunner/whopper/stunner/whooper of a motor museum put together by three generations of the Rupert family who for a long time were the richest family in South Africa. So we turned up on Monday morning bright and breezy at 10.00am and spent an hour looking around four buildings containing some of the finest cars I have ever seen. From early Fords through to Nelson Mandela's official car (for sale) and about 45 penny-farthings hung limply on the wall. The museum shows 68 of it's 322 cars at any one time - and rotates them every six months. So we saw around a quarter of the collection. Strangely they are not all shown on the website - www.fmm.co.za - and I think must be changed at the same time the collection itself. Well worth a visit if you are ever in this neck of the woods.
