Alongside all the delicious food and wine, and gorgeous views, in the Cape Winelands in South Africa, you could add in a little motoring culture to your visit. Situated in the midst of a gorgeous estate is the Franschhoek Motor Museum, with a tremendous collection of cars dating back ~100 years. Tastefully displayed in four buildings, allow enough time to wander through, and hope that your favorites are not in storage – like many museums, they can only display a fraction of their holdings at any one time. Although we aren’t particularly knowledgeable about cars, we were fascinated by the meticulous condition of the cars and the breadth of the collection, and thought it compares well even to the LeMay — America’s Car Museum in Tacoma, WA. Don’t miss the velocipede collection also hanging high on display.
