Chairman’s Report

With the COVID-19 becoming more of a reality in our daily life, the club is already considering its options as to the club activities. The Arrowtown Autumn Festival is cancelled. A decision was made to cancel the rally after a consensus of opinion was called amongst the committee. This has the makings of a major shakedown in our lifestyle. On a positive note, last weekend 7 car loads of members ventured to Moke Lake which is 15 kms west of Queenstown on the Glenorchy road. Why I tell you this is a lot of the members were fascinated by its beauty being so close to home while not knowing it existed. Alistair Stewart the organizer put a speed advisory restriction on the final 8 kms of gravel road at Moke Lake end which proved wellwarranted because the corrugation and ruts shook my poor Capri like it never experienced in its life. The steering rake which 4 months ago I had rebushed decided to let go and collapse again. But we managed to ride home unaided, thank goodness! John Martin has run 3 successful Retirees meetings with interesting programs of visits and talks on owner’s cars. The first morning we had a discussion on the format the meeting should follow. This was followed by John’s talk on his MGA. After which he invited us to visit his workshop, which has new projects including a sleeper trailer for two, which he tells us he would tow behind his Morris Minor? This is made in true John’s excellence of ply veneer sandwiching high-density polystyrene for warmth and lightness. An ideal accessory for swap meets. But wait there’s more, in the house garage, he is restoring a 1914 Studebaker for himself and Wendy. He brought it with motor, transmission and diff complete in a chassis, now he has a task of making a body to fit, in usual John fashion. Week 2, saw an increase of attendees enjoying a visit to Roger Bisset’s garage, to see the making of Ford V8 trucks , using his large collection of parts which he has accumulated over the years. This week, John had another visit of interest but because of change of circumstances for the venue, we had a morning of interesting discussions and new members sourcing parts in the Parts Dept. making them smile and increasing our finances by $120.00. The months ahead will be very unstable for the club due to the virus, so stay close to your emails. Stay safe and see you all after the storm. Murray George

Editor’s Comments You will all be very well aware of the effect that the Covid-19 virus is having on planned events and gatherings in New Zealand. Due to the latest advice from our government and the NZVCC administration , a number of events, both in our club and others, have already been cancelled and there are bound to be more to follow as restrictions possibly increase. If you are travelling to any Rally or event please check whether or not it has been cancelled before you leave. Please take note of the cancellations on pages 2,4 & 5 April Sunday Run Our April Sunday Run over the Thomson Gorge track is still on and providing the weather does not turn rubbishy, it should be a good run. The track is classified as a “dry weather road” with several fords, suitable for 2WD in summer. Reports say the road is in good condition. Any queries please contact John Martin 445 0598 When I have time (my friends say I have lots of time, I’m retired) I try to have a look at some of the other VCC Branch newsletters on the National VCC website, especially our South island ones. While reading the Banks Peninsula newsletter, the March edition of DRIPFEED, I came across a poem on pages 3 & 4. Now I’m not much of a poem person, I hated poems at school, but this one caught my attention. It was apparently first published in the Auckland VCC newsletter in June 1985 and is called “ The Silent Majority.” It was obviously very relevant 35 years ago and is still relevant today. So look it up and have a read, it’s quite good. Having had both of my “old” cars run out of their WOF’s a few weeks ago I rang up the garages to book them in. Yes, garages is spelled correctly in the plural form. I use a different garage for each vintage car and there is a good reason for that but as it is a long story, I won’t go into it at the moment. My 1927 Austin goes to a local garage where the mechanic is very thorough but also very fair, he makes sure that everything is up to scratch but he is also aware that the car has 93 year old technology and treats it accordingly. I had spent two hours the day before finding out why the horn wasn’t working and fixing it, so it passed with no problems . When I paid the bill, I was a bit surprised to find that the price had gone up another five dollars since my previous one six months ago and was now $75. This got me thinking that I really need to get it out and use it more because I probably only put about three full tank of petrol through it in the past year and since it only holds about 8 imp. gallons (36.4 litres), that amounts to about $80 per tank. That means that cost of Rego and WOF and an oil change amounts to almost half of my annual running cost for the Austin per year. Now being of Scottish descent in the distant past, I thought that this was not good, 50% of my running cost was being used while the car slept quietly in the corner of my garage. So I thought that I need to get better value for money and the way to do that was to use the car twice as much therefore using twice the fuel so that instead of Rego, WOF and oil being 50% of my running cost, they would only be 34%. Therefore because I would only be wasting 34% of my running cost while not using my car instead of 50%, surely this has to mean that the more I use my car the better off I am financially ie. I’m wasting 16% less. (I learned this type of “ creative accounting” by listening to Politicians and bureaucrats ). ( cont’d )

A bit of extra information for those who are interested in the Wheels at Wanaka for 2021, plans are already underway and can be checked out on the internet, just search “Wheels at Wanaka 2021”. Deadline for material for next Puff’n Stuff 13 April 2020. Don

Retiree’s Wednesday Morning There have been three of these mornings so far and although attendance hasn’t been high , it has been consistent. Numbers range from about 6 to 10 with some just dropping in for a short while, others mainly to see if they can find a part in the parts shed, etc. and others just solve the world’s problems. Unfortunately I missed the first one but have been to the last two. I believe that John Martin had his MGA at the first one and they discussed the finer points of this little British roadster. The next week, which was the first that I attended, we had Alex Mckenzie there with his 1955 Dodge Kingsway. Alex has just recently completed the restoration and it won the Tapper Trophy at our end of year Christmas function. After a discussion on the restoration itself and on the intricacies and discrepancies of Dodge, DeSoto, Plymouth and Fargo, we moved on to have a look at Roger Bisset’s shed. Roger gave us a good look around his shop and his latest project which is a 1940 1 ton, flat deck replica of a Long Range Desert Group truck from WW2 Sahara Desert Ops. They were apparently manned mostly by Kiwi farmers who knew how to maintain them. There are no formalities in attending, if you can bring your club vehicle then all the better but it is not mandatory. If you are having any problems with a part of your restoration or maintenance then bring that along or bring it up as a discussion. You never know, someone else may have a brilliant idea or alternatively they may learn something from what you have done. Come along and check it out and if you have any enquiries contact John Martin. 03 445 0598. Editor

Letters to the Editor 50th Anniversary of COVCC Looks like the Club is going ahead to have a 50-year event at Blossom Festival weekend and pleased to see it coming up so hope it goes well. I do have an issue with suggested places to hold the evening meal. #1 Orchard Garden as it is such a dark building with no outlook whatever, but has plenty of parking space. #2 The Post Office Café has a very good outlook but a bit short on space, plenty of parking on the surrounding streets. #3 Dunstan House would be the ideal place as it is where our first talk of a Central Otago Branch took place. Unfortunately I don’t think they could provide for a big crowd and being right on the main street of Clyde could cause a problem with vehicles everywhere. We now move on to Cromwell where we should be all the time to use our very own clubrooms with plenty of parking. A few years ago the kitchen, toilets and all the related hot water etc. was all updated to comply with the with the latest regulations so we could use the rooms for catering of larger events. It’s only happened once that I remember after the alterations etc. and Roger Bissett organized the caterers to supply the food etc. and set it all up and then clean up afterwards. I think they catered for 80 people with four staff and I am sure there must be a group in Cromwell willing to make a dollar for a few hours work on a weekend. Our present Chairperson is trying to get back to using the rooms for every event we have and has my full support as I have been trying for years for this to happen. Look what happened to our Sale Day over the Blossom Sunday, don’t let it happen to the rest of the event. All please understand that these are my views plus a few others who will not speak up and have your say just let everyone know how you feel. A few last notes, just get a count of all who wish to attend and yes a cake is NECESSARY, but what is a guest speaker required for? Regards J. Loudon

Letters to the Editor cont’d Hello, below are details giving information about an Old Race Car Register. It would be great if you could circulate this information to your branch members either by newsletter, magazine, poster, notice-board or just word of mouth. So far the interest in these vehicles is very encouraging and we wish to build a most comprehensive and accurate register as possible.

With thanks, Don Gerrard Banks Peninsular Branch VCC ‘OLD RACE CAR’ REGISTER The recent display and demonstration of Old Race Cars at this years’ Skope Race Meeting in February at Ruapuna was a big success and both the Canterbury Car Club and the Skope Committee have already indicated that they wish it to be repeated at next years’ event – bigger and better and we already have another three interesting cars lined-up. To help us with this project, the Banks Peninsular Branch of the VCC, wish to compile a free register of all such vehicles whatever their state of repair, restoration or condition, so that these ‘Old Race Cars’ are never lost or lose their identity. This documented information may also help owners to obtain history, knowledge and even valuable parts required to enable these race-cars to once more be active. It was very apparent from many enthusiasts and spectators at Februarys’ event that these old race cars create huge interest and are a vital part of the old car movement which needs to be resurrected and encouraged. So if you missed this years’ display, have such a car or know of some-one who has, please drop an email with the details to either of the contacts below and we will be pleased to include on the register. Don Gerrard (021 2123074) email; gerrards2@yahoo.com or, Kelvin Brown, email; kelvinbrownnz@gmail.com

A little girl was sitting next to her grandfather as he read her a bedtime story. From time to time she would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek. She was alternately stroking her own cheek, then his again. Finally, she spoke up, “Grandpa, did God make you?” “Yes, sweetheart,” he answered, “God made me a long time ago.” “Grandpa, did God make me too?” “Yes, indeed, honey,” he said, “God made you just a little while ago.” The worker Feeling their respective faces again, she observed, “God’s getting better at it, isn’t he?”

I am proud to say that I have enthusiastic clients overseas in addition to all over Australia. Please find my attached flyer for more information.

South Otago Motorcycle Rally John and I have just been on the South Otago 46th Annual Motorcycle Rally. We took the 1950 BSA Gold Flash and side chair. We arrived at the club rooms at 10am for morning tea, first bike away at 10.30. It was a lovely day, started out cloudy then the sun came out and it was quiet hot. The rally took us over to Kaka Point then to Owaka, where we stopped to look at the motorcycle display at the local book shop. Leaving Owaka we travelled to Clinton for lunch at the Hotel. Leaving Clinton we went around the back roads coming out at Clydevale then back to the club rooms for afternoon tea and prize giving We did approx. 100 miles with a bit of gravel. There were about 20 bikes, a great day. John and I got the Riders Choice. Enjoying rallying Wendy & John

Editor’s note: You may recall that we ran an ad for Charlie Storey for a couple of months when he was trying to sell a 1967 Morris 1100 mk1 for a friend. I believe the story goes (no pun intended) that Graham Taylor asked Charlie why he didn’t buy it himself and Charlie replied “Give me a good reason why I should buy an 1100!” The following was Graham’s response: -For a start a proud heritage designed by Sir Alec Issigonis, Morris Minor, Mini, 1100 . -Powered by the BMC ( Austin) ‘A’ series engine vastly superior to anything else in its day. -In most cases easy to service, 3000 miles oil and filter. -Cheap tyres, -It runs on 91 octane. -Quick to clean and polish, if you are that way inclined. -Supported by a good new parts network both here and the UK. -Like the mini a lot of fun to drive, corners well, and still has competitive performance. -Economical and a low carbon footprint (prove otherwise). -Plenty of room. -Good for picking up the opposite sex, (the younger, and the wishful). -Your wife / girlfriend can drive you home, -The cops will never believe that you just did 70 (MPH) -The politicians will never worry you (low profile) -The hoons wont steal it. -Stu Millis can recondition it, -And Charlie old son, they are one of my favourite cars.

So you own a Classic Car For some time now I have been intrigued by the term Classic Car. I have my opinion on what constitutes a Classic Car and so do most of you, the problem arises when you start asking others and you realize that there is a very wide range of answers. I then wondered if there was some sort of definition for the classification Classic Car. Where to start. I thought that I would take an example from the younger generation and ask that “know-it-all” Mr. Google, so I got Mr. Google on my laptop and typed in “classic car definition”. I was met by all sorts of headings of “Classic Car” followed by the name of the country, so I chose the one for New Zealand. I soon realized that I shouldn’t have even started this. I quickly came across the following: 1) From AMI insurance-”classic’ means special interest vehicles, limited editions and collectors’ items built after 1960. “ -Who defines special interest vehicles and collector’s items? Your special interest and your collector’s items are likely to be totally different to mine. If you have a car built before 1960, I guess you can’t call it a classic. 2) From AA Insurance- “Classic cars are usually older vehicles with historical interest that makes them collectible and worth preserving. The intention of our Classic Vehicle policy is to offer cover for a car, van or other type of treasured vehicle that’s only occasionally driven and well looked after.” - Not much help here either as they then go on to say that “Some customers may have a car that most of us would consider as a pretty ‘everyday’ car. However, to the customer it is so special that they are part of a car club, take extra care of it, and only take it out on the occasional Sunday drive or rally. So we consider each vehicle on its own merits, including how the customer uses it.” 3) Aha NZVCC site, they’ll know. Nope, they don’t have a classification for Classic Car 4) NZTA- No Classic Car here either but you can have a “Special Interest vehicle”. 5) Classic motoring society of NZ,— surely they will have a “proper definition”. No such luck, this is what they say: “The definition of "classic vehicle" will be determined by the owner of the vehicle. If the owner considers his/her vehicle to be a classic, this decision will be accepted and respected by all other club members.” -That last one is pretty waffley to say the least, considering the name of the group. According to that my Toyota Prado is a classic if I want it to be one. 6) Probably the best answer was in an article in the Driven Magazine called “Opinion: what exactly is a 'classic' car? By Matthew Hansen • 24/08/2018” – An interesting article, look it up on the net and read it. His conclusion was: “There's no such thing as a definitive classic. One man's (or woman's) trash, is another person's treasure. A sure-fire classic to one, is a cliché bore to the next. So let's put the pitchforks down and learn to appreciate everyone else's rides. In 30 years we'll all be getting shuttled from place to place in selfdriving cars anyway — romanticizing to each other about CVT two-wheel drive compact SUVs and 'the good old days'.” -So my conclusion from all of this is: If you think you own a Classic Car then I guess you do own a Classic Car.
