The original Du Toitskloof Pass was first introduced to me by its main protagonist and planner, P A de Villiers (see his article in the December 1995 issue of the magazine), who drove me along the buchu farm road in his large left hand drive Packard to the summit, from the Wellington side. Years later when I returned to Cape Town the road was under construction and I never had to sit as a passenger in a left-handed Packard going up that farm track again.
