    As I can not be there in person this year I would be most grateful for any comments and photos etc. to be entered into this thread.
    May you all have a safe and enjoyable weekend.

    With many regrets,

    Ken H

    Ken H,
    I am not there either, in Auckland .. How did I get that so wrong again. !!!.

    Paul B and the Falcon will be there as will Leon Hallet ? in his huge Galaxie, and John Stokes, who has just released his second book on the History of Ford in New Zealand - have read volume one and waiting for volume two to hit my local Library.
    John Stokes has gone in his Pale Green Mark 3 Zephyr, same as Ernie's car " yeah nah " or is it " yeah right "like the Tui ads ..

    Trust the new President will look after you ..

    Cheers from Aotearoa - - home of the America's Cup and " young " Kenny Smith competing in his 50th New Zealand Grand Prix this weekend at that other Race Track ..

    Roger

    I am sure there will be a lot of " stuff " posted on Facebook and hopefully on here at TRS..

    The car - had seen a photo of it from a car display a while ago and didn't realise who owned it !
    This is John Stokes own photo.

    Roger,
    It seems a shame that both motoring events are on the same weekend in NZ.
    Especially as over here we can have no events at all !
    Almost in the words of Fred Dagg " You don't know how lucky you are "

    Cheers,
    Ken H
