NZ Classic Car Show Report

Karen and I were on holiday during the Galaxy of Cars day. I hear that there were around 10 club cars attending, that it was an exceptionally hot day, and that Martin looked like a fire engine at the end of it.

We were back for the next weekend and the NZ Classic Car Show (Concours) at Ellerslie though.

Again, it was a bright and sunny day. Fortunately this year we had a spot with plenty of shade from the trees, making for a pleasant environment.

Unfortunately, there were only two club cars when we had space for at least six.

Still, the lack of cars did not mean we had a lack of interest from the public, with many people stopping by to chat about their days learning to drive, or travelling in the back of the family Prefect for long distances, or with queries for parts.

We also had Terry (who was attending with the Jowett Club) drop by to bring to my attention a Ford 10 special on the Sunbeam Club site. We also bumped into previous members Brian McSwiggan and Philip Pearce and had a catch-up natter with them.
