Thread: Dunedin Street Races - revival meeting January 1984

  1. #261
    so the meeting this thread is about would have been a one off 'revival' meeting, then it grew into a festival like the old days.
    thanks for looking that up Milan, it's certainaly a mission trying to sort this stuff out, particularly as i'm following bikes, and they may have come and gone...

    Motoring History another set of facts !!

    Speed limits and conversion from " English " to Metric = MpH to KpH
    This from Kelvin Brown
    " Had to check that, our NZ road metric change was in 1975. Of interest were the NZ open road speed changes we have had. 1962 from 50 to 55 mph, 1969 from 55 to 60 mph, 1973 from 60 to 50 mph or 80 kph. 1986 from 80 to 100 kph. "

    This makes more sense now ; - and a bit more on the McLaughlin Healey
    - These speeds are from 1963 - Thanks Kelvin Brown.
    Would have been the inaugural " Pukekohe " New Zealand Grand Prix meeting.

    You could be right, I was just going by the comment above which mentions 1975 - and remember getting stickers with numbers for the km equivalent of the proposed KM equivalent speed limits to attach to the speedo on my first Mini back in the late 1960's.

    Yes it does seat 6 - a double cab and still has all the clips on the back of the front seat for the firemen to stow their gear.

    The owner sitting in the Drivers Seat - he loves his new Truck - his other vehicle is a Long wheel base Land Rover Defender also of 1990's vintage a Station Wagon version, and on the farm a SWB Landrover Pickup of around 1990 vintage - another Classic

    Ken H, Kevin H and Rhys N will all know the area.

    Where ? and When ..

    The answer is there if you hover your cursor over the Photos.

    The link was sent to me by Richard Armstrong, a Rally and Racing guy from Hamilton Car Club, now living in Tauranga.

    Three well known cars, well - One very well known one well known and the third known for being unusual !!
    One still exists and is in New Zealand the second still exists but not as seen here - the third ?
