    Ken and how about a " Cordial " welcome, would prefer a beer..

    Story ... When Caltex used the " Boron " name and the slogan as seen above " NOTHING MATCHES BORON " my mate Ron, thought it was great, he got a sticker and trimmed in down so it read " NOTHING MATCHES RON " " and stuck it on his bicycle, that must have been around 1964 when we were still at school .. this from a bit later - the boys in 1967 when we had cars, but no girlfriends, well me anyway .. Richard Steve the other Rog and Myself all had cars, Ron still had his bicycle .. poor lad.

    Steve's Humber 80, with wide Jaguar wheels on the rear, My Mini, with Jolly Wides on the front and a Tractor Muffler, Richards new Fiat Bambina and the other Roger's PA Vauxhall, which was the main transport to Pukekohe as seated 6, with the four on a tree and a bench or crook seat in the front ..

    and the tractor muffler ; courtesy of Rob Williams of Allard and Ford V8 Coupe fame an NSCC stalwart since the early 1960's - great mate of Colin Waite, and Allan Woolf - Allan and Colleen Woolf were my neighbours in the late 1950's early 60's in New Lynn. Knew Rob from schooldays as used to callin after school in my mates 1939 Hillman to see welding and stuff, and knew Colin from NSCC days 1967 on, when the above Mini was purchased, about the same time Ken that you had a Anglia " passion wagon "

    Grant, we now own a Red Mk 2, rego CT1666, did your father ever drive that one and if he did do you have any photos? He may well have sold it originally? I was told by the seller of the car to my father that Tony Shelley supplied the car to Rod Coppins and John Ward to race at the 1966 Gold Leaf. Thanks Steve
