The Big Reveal Day

50 people turned up on a beautiful clear winters day to see what was under the cover. The sausages sizzled and the tea and coffee was piping hot.

 A great day to reveal the beautiful 1948 Fraser Nash Le Mans. Thanks to all those who came to see this amazing piece of history.

1Run To Shannon

A classic car show to raise funds for local Shannon charities. Definitely worth a cruise and a look around. $5 entry per car.

 This was an excellent day and well orgainsed. Lots of stalls and food and announcer with attitude! 20 Autoclassics classics made a great display and a great day out.

2 ANZAC Day - Run To The Redhouse Cafe, Te Horo..

13 cars and 25 people enjoyed a quiet mornings run and brunch at the Redhouse in Te Horo. The food and atmoshpere was excellent.

An excellent day all round, though even best laid plans go awry. Who would have expected that the local Anzac Parade would be so big that the cars had to detour - and thus miss some vital clues!. Oh well...............

3 Our Christmas Sausage Sizzle Cruise Event

32 Classic Cars and 70 people picked the one fine night of summer we've had so far this season, and had a one hour run around Paraparaumu and Raumati on Monday night 18th December. Then we had a sausage sizzle at Autoclassics. Jan and Bob Stott won the Christmas Hamper for most correct answers to the route questions and general knowledge questions. Congratulations! A lot of fun was had by all. Locals enjoyed seeing the convoy of Citroens, Zephyrs, Triumphs, MG's, Jaguars, BMW's, et al.

4 Our Wairarapa Tour Event

Despite the Summer (Yeah right!!!!) weather, 25 cars and 50 people headed off for the day. An 8,30am start meant we were in Martinborough by 10.30 for morning tea. We picked up fellow tourers at Haywards and Upper Hutt and Featherston on the way. Then we headed into the back roads of the Wairarapa before heading to Greytown for lunch. Even getting lost doesn't bother classic motorists, who just enjoy the drive and sometimes don't even realise that our intrepid local leader has gone the wrong way!!! Just as well he did really, because the 10 minute delay may have meant we, as a convoy, were not involved in the awful accident we came across a little bit later in the journey.

Our Move

Why is it that everything takes longer than you think and costs more too!

While I thought I had planned the move pretty carefully, it's been more effort than I imagined. Still, nearly there and looking forward to being permanently installed at 386 Kapiti Road.

Thanks to all those who've called in and been so encouraging, and special thanks to all those who have helped out. Particularly Vicki, GT, and of course Frances.
