    NSCC The later years.

    Early in the thread I posted the names of the Presidents form 1943 - 1974 - the first 30 years - repeated below

    " 1943-45 Verne Clarke
    1945-46 Eddie Dowding
    1946-47 Ces Hodge
    1947-48 John Wilson
    1948-49 Colin McGregor
    1950-51 Jock Aitken
    1951-52 Phil Ornstein
    1952-55 Laurie Powell
    1955-56 Roger Brown
    1955-56 Peter Ayson
    1956-60 Dudley Badham
    1960-62 Lloyd Gerrard
    1962-64 Jim Lockley
    1964-66 Ian Runnerstrum
    1966-70 Owen Thomas
    1970-74 Morrie Chandler "

    These were the later Presidents
    1974 on - including Bob Kidd, who gave me some early information recently.

    " 1974-78 Grahame Knight
    1978-81 Robert Kidd
    1981-82 David Smith
    1982-83 Brett Norager
    1983-88 Bob Mitchell

    1989-90 John De Vere-Ellery
    1990-92 Bill Johnston
    1992-98 Joe Smith
    1998-99 Rod Peat
    2000-01 David Armour
    2001-08 John De Vere-Ellery
    2009-current Vicki Burnitt "

    The Clubs Logo seems to have only changed twice -
    The 1943 Members Cards had the image of an MG T series and just the words ;
    " Northern Sports Car Club
    Incorporated "


    The original logo from the 1950's as shown on the recent pages posted by Milan Fistonic
    here cropped from his post of the 1953 Wairamarama Hill Climb.

    Trevor Sheffield may know if this was also a badge for members - either lapel or a larger car badge ?

    Cossey's Farm, The current Road

    John Coker an NSCC Member for many years,Trials and later Rally Driver, ran a Skoda 120 at one stage - an ex-works car is now a keen cyclist and took photos recently.
    He noted that his time up the Hill [ even though a better track and slightly different layout ] was his slowest ever.

    - photos won't load - will try later ..
    Photos will not load to this post #343.
    Something is NOT right.

    Managed to load this photo though from Cosseys Farm.

    See Trevor Sheffield and his Daimler SP250 #215 in the last three entry lists - appear to be from the same meeting.
