    These two are making good progress as well Steve, the Mustang should be at Taupo for our last meeting this weekend and HQ Holden for next season. Its amazing the builds in progress and others taking interest......this season has been about steadying the ship(as the say) and we are now moving forward full bore......

    Well done Dale on getting a great grid together. Better than the Improved Production grid of 8 cars, or the Hooters Vintage grid of 7...…..

    Thank you Andrew. We would like to thank the guys and girls for continually supporting us by entering these events.
    We can’t do it without their support.
    If you want racing these days you must commit to your group because the day that no one turns up is the day that it ends.
    There is also to many race meetings these days and to many classes competing for the same bit of property...
    Your welcome to join us with your lovely MGB GT as well for next season.

    Few pit images from the weekend, last race cancelled due to track conditions(wet, more like a Lake). We(HMC/HSC) have had probably the best season ever, 6 rounds with no major damage and great turn out of cars. Driving standards have certainly lifted with respect amongst the group for each others vehicles.

    The 2 Sports and GT cars attracted lots of interested with a possible Schedule K mid year corvette been imported just for the class.

    We even had one person fly up from Queenstown just to view HMC/HSC with an eye on been apart of this plus offcourse Rodger Cunningham's huge effort bringing his brand new built 65 Fahey Replica Mustang up from Te Anau. Overall the best season ever. Dale M

    Well said Dale and I concur, the best season ever and such a respect for each other’s cars and the track conditions.
    We had some serious period Historic cars racing with the group for this meeting as well.
    Nigel McDonald in his 67 Shelby TransAm Mustang, Brent Smith in his Dads Willment/Richards Escort Twin Cam, Dennis McConnell in his Halliday Bros/Woolf BDG Freighters Escort and John McKechnie in his Cambridge Monaro.

    Tremendous effort by Rodger and Barbara Cunninghame to bring their new build Fayhe Tribute Mustang up all the way from Invercargill.
    What a glorious build this car is as well.

    Visitors were Wayne Perkins from the South Island and Trevor Griffin with his 1972 Ex B&H Fiat 125T which he drove from Napier and put on display, Top effort guys..

    Karl Sentch fitted straight in with his Datsun 240Z and really enjoyed racing in a grid of correct cars.
    No dents and just total respect...we have come along way this year and now busy planning next year.

    Steve, i contacted Jon Mello in the USA and he linked me to this E-mail below:

    "Pat Ryan (who owns the #15 above) says that for Ditzler paint the color codes are...

    Sunoco Blue: 12302

    Sunoco Yellow: 81229"

    Whatever Ron used on this replica, it looks very accurate to the original.

    Hello Dale,
    Looking forward to seeing you driving this great looking vehicle.
    Here is another Sunoco Penske machine I photographed at Laguna Seca. 2016.
    A great colour blue that changes as you walk around the car.

    Looking good Dale - it is easy to see the work that goes into a car when you see such photos.

    Looking at the different colours that appear from the different photos - can see why some people get sidetracked.

    Philip Maceys XC Falcon coupe historic race car on display at the Speedshow yesterday(Sat 13th July). Had a good chat with Philip, he has not driven the car yet but will test in the next few weeks, he wants to go south for the Waimate 50 to kick off and then start the season with HMC/HSC Inc. He had a prime spot at the show and received a ton of positive comments, mainly how correct the car looks especially the wheels.

    That is a fantastic looking car and will be a great addition to the grids.

    Had the pleasure of having the Segedin Mustang in my shop today, along with Ian Rankin, Murray Maunder and Steve Holmes doing film work for a new TV program(watch this space).

    Thanks to Sean and Jane McCaughan for bringing this fabulous Mustang down that now races in the "Historic Saloon Car" Group with its next meeting the Taupo GP, January 2020.
