Verdon Heath, Ivan Horn, Jeff Fox, Mark Morgan and Mike Khull Meeting Branch Night - 1st Wednesday of the month at 7 30 pm Committee Meeting - Last Wednesday of the month at 7 30 pm Working Bee - Saturday following Branch Night at 9 00 am Spare Parts - Open Saturday following Branch Night


I have great pleasure in starting my monthly chat by saying how proud I feel to be the Chairman of such a great club. The Swap Meet which is our main source of income was a huge success and why? Because the whole club was behind it! It was run by a club that is committed to each other. Sure we had all the main organisers who put a huge amount of time and effort into the event from behind the scenes. These people are far too many to name but if the club had not been behind them the event would not have been so successful. So thanks and congratulations to you all, this commitment is what a club is all about. Let’s just keep it that way, combined, dedicated and with friendship. On Saturday 30th March we had our visit to the Masonic Village in Levin and again it was such a pleasure to have 14 cars participate and enjoy the gratitude and pleasure that we gave as a club to the occupants of the village. The weather was magnificent and after taking many of the residents for a ride we were all treated to a wonderful afternoon tea served on the lawn under the trees. The management of the lodge told me that it was 25 years since the club had been there and requested that we make the event at least an annual one. Again our reward was seeing the look on the faces and realising the enjoyment our club was giving the residents. So thanks to all those that attended. This month’s club meeting was well attended with about 60 members present. Bill Isles presentation on the Wanaka air show was well received, so thanks Bill and your assistant Colin Geange. Next month’s speaker is Bruce Hutton. Bruce collects old post cards so his presentation will be very interesting. This month’s Saturday morning Working Bee was very well attended and there were also quite a few visitors there, so again we all enjoyed a very social morning. Anyone is very welcome to attend this monthly occasion and it is a great opportunity to look through the Spares department or the Library and enjoy our super social morning tea. Our next event is the Ted Green Motorcycle Rally on the 14th of this month and then on the 28th is a competitive afternoon run organised by Bruce Lawrie so I hope to see you at these events. Cheers.

Des St Clare

Many thanks to George McLean for the above item


Coming in through the gate at 8am was a Ford Single Spinner Coupe with lovely light blue paint work with a light metallic fleck. There were three blokes in the car. They pulled up to pay. The guys in the front seat paid up. Barry bent over to check the back seat passenger. There was no money forth coming. He had to ask if he was alive! The others poked and woke him, with a start and in a sleepy stupor he paid his money. The driver apologised, he said they had left Auckland early this morning and they had been rotating the driver while the passengers slept! Good effort!

A punter through the gate already has his $5 note held up ready to pay, as he hands it over, he says “cheapest Swap Meet around and one of the best”. Just a simple wee query at the gate was made, “Are you selling or just having a look around” so as to establish what to charge. The bloke says “Mate the only thing I can sell you is my wife, she’s sitting right here, how much can you pay?” He got thumped! A friendly old chat with a fellow VCC member from another branch ended up turning to the cost of entry to the Swap Meet. His opinion was that the cost ought to be raised in line with similar events run by other branches. We apparently are selling ourselves short and there is more money out there for the club. Interesting that other branch members find it necessary to advise us on how we should run the Swap Meet!

“I wish you guys had a pass out stamp, then I could get back in without having to find the guy who I told, I was coming back! It would make it a whole lot easier!” Several comments were received from members of the public that the food selection was excellent. There was a good variety and it was good quality. The cost of the food was very reasonable as was the gate charge which is regarded as very good.


The remark was overheard that this is a great Swap Meet and has to be No1 in the area. This is the one not to miss. It helps that the attitude of the members is friendly and helpful. The comment made to Mike Khull by a keen member of the public was that he was happy there were plenty of seats and tables. He said it was good to be able to sit down and rest, have a cup of tea and eat. It was a good place to talk to your friends. He also said the deck was a nice place to sit and get out of the sun, you could look at the goings on. The comparison was made to Palmerston North where it was difficult to get a seat and you were on your feet the whole time.

This year’s Swap Meet was better as it was more spread out. It was easier to move around and walk between peoples’ sites. Ordinary bloke, bit of a hard case is up to the gate by himself. He turns looking for someone and no one is there. He goes looking and his wife arrives around the corner, wearing gumboots. He reckons she’s got the money, she says he has! He checks his pockets and yep it’s in his pocket. His wife kicks him up the bum! After a look around he’s back at the gate wanting to put stuff in his car, he says, normally he wears a red hat to recognise him by, to get back in. He says look at the Mrs, she’s got a red jersey. He says you can’t miss that, besides look at the size of her, you’ll remember us. His wife kicks him up the bum! Couple of fellas walked into Spares when it opened at 10am. One of them stops short and says out loud “S*+t this is like walking into a supermarket!” Spares guys commented by saying that’s exactly what we set out to achieve!

‘You guys Spares Shed is a Goldmine of S**t!’

All of these comments above are genuine remarks made by people attending our Swap Meet. These are not fabricated but collated from members recounting stories told to them, I’ve no doubt there are plenty more out there if we just asked. Ed


REPORT ON THE EXECUTIVE MEETING OF THE NZ VINTAGE CAR CLUB HELD ON 23 MARCH 2019 AT THE MIRAMAR GOLF CLUB, WELLINGTON The meeting started at 10am and finished at 5pm. The Executive is made up of a delegate from each Branch and all but 4-5 branches were represented. The Executive is the decision making body for the Club. The financial performance for the 10 months ended January shows a surplus of some $69,000. The profit share from Vero was around $37,000 about $8000 up on last year. Vero ‘s contribution to the VCC is around $1million dollars including sponsorship since 1963 originally as Phoenix Insurance. Membership Papers had been circulated re membership for each branch covering new, deceased, resigned and un-financial members. The reason for this is the executive committee is the body that approves new members not the branch committee. A person applies to join the club and not the branch. Likewise expulsions can only be done by the executive committee. There is work being done on an online membership application form. I asked if the application form could ask whether new members wanted to receive an electronic or paper copy of Beaded Wheels as people under 50 years of age do not read daily newspapers let alone paper magazines. The magazine is sent out electronically to non members. George Kear has been appointed to the management committee. The first National rally for vintage cars is to go ahead in 2020. Probably start in Taihape and go over to Napier and down to Central Hawkes Bay. The NZTA’s problems with heavy transport and WOF issuance is not helping the cause of 12 months WOF for Historic vehicles which is not making any progress. Planning is proceeding for a ‘highland frolic’ in the North Island modeled along the lines of the Irishman rally for 2020. Maybe located in the Taihape inland Hawkes Bay area but route not yet finalised. Archivist in Christchurch has 1000 books in the library and converted to a free library software called book tome which gives information on title, author, year published, no of pages and locations where the book maybe held. Can contact Archivist for further information if required.


Horowhenua Letter The President read out a letter from the Horowhenua Branch seeking to have our Southern boundary, currently the Waikanae River extended southwards to just South of Paekakariki where the Kapiti Coast District Council ends. A copy was also sent to Wellington branch. The President asked the 2 branches to talk together and come back to the next executive meeting. The issue is significant to us as we seek to lift our profile in the Paraparaumu area but more importantly it was drawn to the meeting’s attention that members living outside the branch boundaries are not eligible to hold office in the branch. This disenfranchises members who live south of the Waikanae River. Auckland branch said they would also have a problem with North Shore and Waitemata branches members living outside their boundaries. Upon further investigation, subsequent to the meeting it was found that is not the case unless stated in the Branch Constitution. Branch Constitutions National Office sent out a template constitution for branches to use if they wish. A number of the branch constitutions are badly in need of revision. The Incorporated Societies review could be ready for introduction into Parliament this year with a view to being enacted next year. It would seem prudent for the Branch to await the enactment before making changes to our constitution. National Motorcycle Rally In view of the International Festival of Motoring being held in 2021 it had been decided to not hold other national rallies in that year and the motorcycle rally would be part of the festival rally. There was considerable opposition from branches and it was resolved without dissent to allow the national motorcycle rally to proceed in 2021. There were 189 entrants in the 2018 National motorcycle rally while just 9 entries in the Dunedin International Rally. Wairarapa branch indicated they were interested in holding the motorcycle rally in 2021. Targa Rally In 2018 was in Southland, usually in North Island. Organisers were happy with VCC entrants and the Club received 22 new members. This year the rally is from Rotorua to Palmerston North over Labour weekend.


Motorsport Historic Commission Relationships with VCC are very good and the Commission is feeling a drop in membership. Maybe more receptive to the eligibility of post 1960’s cars. Festival of Motoring 2021 Previously known as the International Rally. Organisers are available to speak to Branches, provide written material for branch newsletters and will be sending brochures to branches shortly. There will be magnetic signs. The accommodation and rally routes are in place and expect to have everything in place by the end of this year. It is vital to the future of such rallies that members support the event. One issue is increasing concerns about issuing WOF’s for older cars. Some places will not do them. Public liability insurance is a necessity for events using public parks and our branch is covered by the National Office cover. Smaller one make clubs could struggle going on their own. The NZ Federation of Motoring Clubs is looking at overall cover. In NZ law 40 years is in the definition of a vintage car not our 30 years. Ethanol in petrol is a problem for older cars that are used infrequently as the ethanol turns to water this causes problems, but its use maybe unavoidable. FIVA has on its website a very good guide on responsible use of historic vehicles. A historic vehicle is ‘a rolling museum on the road’. The NZVCC is a member of FIVA and the 2021 Festival of Motoring has received FIVA accreditation as a National event and will be in their calendar. If it was accepted as an International event then we would have to pay the costs of having a FIVA Steward. There is a worldwide move to preserve vehicles rather than restoring them. Overseas trends show a decrease in vehicle ownership. And in some countries individual ownership may go as well as a ban on ICE (internal combustion engines). The European Commission has published a ‘Study on Urban Vehicle Access Regulations’ (UVAR) which will give you a flavour of what the future may hold in EU countries at least. It is not light reading. Michael Gaffaney Delegate


Aston Martin has revealed that it has already secured buyers for the entire run of the James Bond DB5’s. They will cost £2.75 million each, and cannot be used on the road! The cars will be built from scratch with the features as on the eight Bond movies, bullet shield, revolving number plates etc. A total of 28 will be built, with 25 being sold preordered, two for display and the other to be auctioned. JLR Classics in England are rebuilding Series 1 Land Rovers. Rebuilt using an ‘old chassis’ with as many new components as possible, still featuring the old 53hp 1.6 engine. Price £75,000. Range Rover is also ‘restoring’ using the same process. Price £140,000. This includes the E type Jaguar at a whopping £275,000. Orders any one?

ANSWER


The Swap Meet was a record day on many fronts! I’m sure there will be many write ups in this issue of Spark. This Spares report takes place before the Swap Meet. There is nothing like a “barn find” every once in a while. On a somewhat wet Wednesday morning four days before the Swap Meet, Bob, Colin, Des and myself set out to rescue a 1937 Wolseley 12. It had been up on blocks since 1983 and is a former Waikanae car. The rain was only the start of our problems. We faced barbed wire, seized brakes, waist high grass and rats! We started at 10.30am and finished at 1.20pm. Along with the Wolseley we recovered some 1920’s Crossley 19/6 parts and a complete set of Austin 20 wheels. There were also two 21 inch Morris Commercial pressed steel wheels. Was it worth all the trouble? Yes! The Wolseley 12 sold on Swap Meet day along with the Austin wheels and Crossley parts. The Wolseley will be fully restored in the Manawatu area. Safe travelling everyone.

1920 Crossley 19/6 chassis. 1,150 19/6’s were built between 1920 to 1926.

1937 Wolseley 12 5,602 Series III vehicles were built. This car was sold to the Manawatu area.
