Goodwood in the ’70s

Voortrekker Road in Goodwood

As a comment on my previous article, Jonathan suggested that Voortrekker Road is reminiscent of something out of the 1970s... and I do believe he's right. Were it not for the more modern cars in the photo you'd easily mistake this for a photo that my mom or dad may have taken.

I mentioned previously that I have lots of memories of Voortrekker Road - one of these is that I bought my first car from "Lekker Lieg Motors", which is just a little further along this road, on the right. "Lekker Lieg" is our interpretation of the letters that make up the name of the dealership. Roughly translated, the Afrikaans word "Lekker" means "Nice" and "Lieg" means "Lies". Put them together and I'm sure you get the idea. ;)

    I agree, Voortrekker Road still looks exactly the same as it did when I was a child. One of my many memories of Voortrekker Road is my cousin and I (both wearing neon socks and skirt) going with my Aunt to the video shop she worked at and watching video’s all day while eating a nut ring bought across the road from a bakery.

    I am sure most (if not all) car dealerships could be called Lekker Lieg Motors!

    Awesome photo BTW :)
