Recently, my godson got me hooked on a car restoration show on Netflix and honestly, I would never have picked it, but gosh, those cars are beautiful and I got completely sucked in to the rag tag group of mechanics making their vintage car dreams come true! And not a week later Dewet Beukes, of Red Truck Coffee Roastery, approached us with a mission to restore their iconic 1946 Chevy Pickup. Ah the fates! We chatted to Dewet about the project and about how you can get involved! We are hoping they will be able to drive it to our next Creative Coffee Week!
"Red Truck Coffee Roastery's name actually came from the iconic 1946 Chevy Pickup truck that has been part of Red Truck Coffee Roastery since the beginning.
We decided that after 5 years that it is time to make a plan to get this truck in working condition and start to become a regular sight in the streets of Gauteng.
We have started a donation program where anybody can Donate to this project, and to the companies or people who donate more than R1000, we will add their logo or signature into the truck as a remembrance of everyone who has participated in this project. The project has started an instagram page and an Facebook page where progress reports will be posted regularly to see how the project is going.
This is a community project to save a beautiful vintage truck and the response has blown our minds.
