    Kind thought Mate,
    - but with this Covid - thing, both us and the car are staying put.
    Intended coming to Auckland and bringing the Assembly up - but now on Hold.

    A bit later in the year - will get it towed as currently sitting on a street - not the best idea.

    Cheers
    Roger

    For some reason the photo/image had a white background but on resizing from 374kb as a Png image to this as a Jpg - it changed to black ??

    I'd make sure it was secure. Stealing MX5's seems to be on the increase...

    Yeah...I have lots of unopened kits. When I was younger I was collecting and building all of the Tamiya Group A Cars and JTTC Cars they released. Some are becoming quite valuable now...unless they decide to do a re-release!
    I then built a real race car so all of that stopped.

    Finding more photos MX5 and others

    Going through a box of photos from 1995 through to around 2004, mainly family, houses and holidays ..
    In among them are photos from
    - MX5 Track Day at Pukekohe in 2004 that I competed in - entered [ probably the more correct word as not competing ]
    - NZ Targa Rally 2003 - taken out near Ardmore / Alfriston area -must try to read the Road Signs.
    - 3 more from " Whenuapai Wings and Wheels " around 1999 - 2000
    - 1;18 scale Mazda MX5 - Eunos Roadster - V-Special in Neo ( BRG ) Green that was given to me on my 50th Birthday in September 1997.

    A bit of scanning and sorting to do.

    Just noticed the view 19947 .. if you go 19/9/47 - that is me - an Omen or ?? , that is where the usual edit of ### 47 come from !

    MX5 Track Day 2004 - around March from memory.

    From the archive of recently rediscovered photos.
    Attended the 2004 MX5 Club NZ Track day at Pukekohe in UN7284.
    Only took a few photos and here they are.

    quality of the photos not good - think the camera either had a bad battery or the lenses were very dirty - according to the Photo processors - camera stopped getting used shortly after.

    This is the only photo of UN7284 on track - taken by Nigel Every - who I worked with as well as were both in the NZ MX5 Club at the time. [ posted before but relates to this post ]

    " Growler " may know the other cars in the photos..
    Took a few photos of engines too - will be in a future post.

    Also have collected a few photos of the " Bryant Racing " MX5 - that has been at Leadfoot and other places / races !
