    Oh drat! Headed for Hampton Downs this morning (couldn't make yesterday as the ready mix concrete truck was booked) only to arrive and find that they'd condensed the two days into one... Ho hum.


    Not an area I'm interested in, but just to show the variety.

    As you may be able to tell, these are in the 'overflow' area. There is no designated parking for specific makes, but some groups seem to grab 'their' area each month.

    Wow, just as well I didn't go [from Tauranga]. After being in the sun all day at Taupo yesterday I decided not to go - but I did plan to go.

    One of these Vauxhalls very nearly killed my brother when it took a left hand corner too quickly, spun, then rolled right in front of him, as he was walking to Sunday school. In those days, it was a derestricted speed limit area and in later years, it always puzzled me how anyone could possibly have spun there - but I was driving Minis where corners like that weren't an issue. It was pre MoT/Wof days too, so maybe the tyres were rubbish? Rather put me off Vauxhalls.

    Next 'Caffeine & Classic' meet is Sunday. I might take the Magnette if I can make more progress on the bonnet panels. I keep changing my construction methodology and am now on version 4...

    Several Thunderbirds there too Steve. Obviously the uploading of multiple images issues in one hit hasn't been fixed?

    I'll go back to my tech guy Ray and see if he can come up with a solution.

    Car #31 - one of 3 in that race... Trevor Crowe BMW 635 Group A 1983 - that is the sum total of Programme info.

    Eleven pages of the programme promoting Hampton Downs/Highland Park though...

    L series Vauxhall's ..

    Ray your comment ;
    " One of these Vauxhalls very nearly killed my brother when it took a left hand corner too quickly, spun, then rolled right in front of him, as he was walking to Sunday school. In those days, it was a derestricted speed limit area and in later years, it always puzzled me how anyone could possibly have spun there - but I was driving Minis where corners like that weren't an issue. It was pre MoT/Wof days too, so maybe the tyres were rubbish? Rather put me off Vauxhalls. "

    They had that wonderful Knee Action front suspension so when you hit the brakes hard the front rose rather than squatting, very disconcerting, and also meant you made more damage as you went over the bumper of the car in front .. back in the day when Bumpers were just that to Bump.. and many were spring loaded, none of this Plastic and deformable structure nonsense.

    A Mate of mine had an LIP Velox in the late 1960's in Northern Sports Car Club,had triple carbs, and inline shifter and Escort Flares on the back to cover the " Jolly Wide " widened wheels, went like stink in a straight line !! Wish i had a photo of it..

    Sunday. Took the Magnette to Caffeine and Classics, but there was another (free) show/meet up at Orewa, so not as many attendees as usual, but as always, some interesting stuff and plenty of people wanting to chat! February 25th will be a big one though.

    Peter's Trekka was featured in Saturday's Herald 'Driven' section.

    What is the occasion? Might have to go, took the bike last month and saw your 'F, but couldn't find you.

    I think it is another anniversary Andrew. I generally go early and leave early, in time for the daily coffee at Kings Plant Barn, Porana Rd about 11am! Usually seen most cars by then. Hopefully I will have made a bit more progress with the Magnette, but the last two items to be fitted will be the woodrim steering wheel and the MG radiator badge. Still trying to get a really good fit with the bonnet(s) so a lot of grinding, re-glassing, filling, sanding and fettling at the moment, with not a lot to show for it!

    Looking at the red Torana with the fence around it reminds me of Bob Jane when he saw his restored Championship winning Camaro on display also with a neat fence around.
    He ordered the fence to be taken away so people could get close to it as the fans always did.
    Cant see this ever going on a race track

    Agree John. If they are going to put a barrier around a car, then at least consider those of us who like to take an unobstructed photograph of it! Having now travelled to many motor museums (and I will continue to do so whenever and wherever I can), some are no more than storage areas, whilst others appreciate the point of a bit of space around the exhibits or an interesting backdrop.
