Rugby players' rides – Kwagga Smith

Springbok flank KWAGGA SMITH tells about his first-ever car and the one he's driving now.

What was your very first car?
An Isuzu single cab bakkie.

When did you get it and how long did you have it for?
I got it when I was 14 years old. It’s a farm vehicle, so I only drove it on the farm. I still have it.

What car are you currently driving?
A Ford Everest.

When did you get it?
In 2018. It was sponsored by McGee's Ford in Lydenburg, which is my home town, but I bought it later on.

Does your car have a name?

What's the best thing about your car?
It’s always ready for adventure!

Which three words best describe your car?
Reliable, spacious, comfortable. 

What's the best road trip you've been on with your car?
To Mozambique. It’s fully equipped with a roof-rack and gazebo with all the gadgets, so it’s super easy to go to the beach. Mozambique is my favourite place in the world!
