    At least they do have somewhere to run, which is the most important part of the whole scene. Too far gone for one class they may be, but welcomed with open arms in other classes, adding colour, variety and to the varied grids. That is as it should be.

    Still recognisable to us all as Alfas.

    Love the Rush's truck!

    Once a common sight on the race track but as values have increased they are becoming a rare sight and some have been bought and restored to road spec due to values.

    Recently sold in the 40K region but one sold the other week for 70K......

    The entries are out for the Taupo Historic Grand Prix and Tourist Trophy Meeting on the 21st January, Wellington (Anniversary weekend).
    This is a true historic meetind and the classes running are F5000, Formula Junior, HMC/HSC, HSS and Heritage Touring Cars.
    This is a must attend event for us as behind the scenes Dale has done a huge amount of work with the organisers.
    We will be inviting the legends as well so plan your trip now as accomodation is going to be difficult if you leave it to late.

    Cheers
    Bruce

    Hi Greg, the Morrari recreation would be best suited under Historic Sports Sedans and Invited Allcomers. HSS as it is known and has a thread on this site. Co-ordinator is John McKechnie and I know he would welcome you.
    They have in his group the Fahey Breadvan Anglia, the Coppins Zephyr Corvette replica and the Custaxi replica so the Morrari would be a good fit.

    Cheers

    The Taupo Historic Grand Prix and Tourist Trophy Meeting is now just over a week away.
    We have a great lineup of HMC/HSC cars on the grid to which Dale will release the details later in the week.
    We are still waiting on a few confirmations.

    Paul Fahey will be joining us for book signing at the HMC/HSC Marque for Saturday and Sunday. It is a great read so come and talk to Paul, buy his book and get it signed ...
    Also joining us will be Kerry Grant and Ray Stone.
    Posters will be available for signing by all three.

    The Fleetwood Mustang under new ownership of Sean McCaughlan will be on display and maybe out on the circuit as well.
    It is fantastic to have this very historic New Zealand car in our group.

    Please come and talk to the drivers and chat about their cars and to our legends.

    See you there....

    Cheers
    Bruce

    Joining HMC/HSC on Saturday will be Rayden Smith with the beautiful Willment/Richards Escort.
    The Escort will be on display along with the Fleetwood Mustang and also both doing demonstration laps during the day.

    This is a absolutely fine example of the Possum Cortina, powered by a Buick V8 and owned by Don Fenwick

    The Cortina is “Possum” Bourne’s rally Mk1 that he built years ago.
    It has been beautifully restored by Don Fenwick and after calling in on Saturday to chat to us Dale asked him to bring it down on Sunday to display.
    We also along with the Cortina displayed on Sunday Pat Excell’s Anglia 1500GT and Poul Christie’s Mk2 Lotus Cortina just to add flavour to Paul selling his book.
    Guests were Paul Fahey, Kerry Grant and Ray Stone.
