Chairman’s Report Hi all. Well the days are starting to get a bit longer so a bit more time to work on those vehicles. Well what could one say about the Annual Dinner, What a great turn out for the night with 75 people attending. With Peter Livingstone speaking, he had the crowd in fits of laughter all night. Peter had done a lot of research into the Branch and some of the members including Myself, Noel Batty, and Rob Ross with Diane Ross up conducting us to sing. Well!!. Thanks to Peter for a great night. Derek Prebble was presented with his 50 year certificate and badge by Michael Lavender (National Secretary/Treasure), also Pearce Watson with his 35 year badge. The Restoration of the Year was presented at the Annual Dinner also, with three vehicles up for this, with Ian Hydes 1947 Fargo Truck taking it out.

Club Captain’s Report August 2017 Perhaps it is just as well the Branch did not have a lot of afternoon tea type runs planned for August as it would have been raining! As it happened we were all kept busy with the “Miles for Smiles” event on the 20th, the delivery of daffodils on the 21st for the Cancer Society and on the 27th our contribution to the National VCCs Cancer appeal in the form of our Scatter Rally. Hopefully that might be the one decent bit of weather for August. The Appeal Day subcommittee have worked hard to make that day a success and I thank them for their efforts. On September 3rd we have the Opening Day Run with South Canterbury, which is always worth attending and this year it is being organised by South Canterbury Branch. An advert for that run will appear elsewhere in this “Blowout”. Later in the month on the 24th we have the Spring Rally, this year organised by Peter Lambie. As always that promises to be an enjoyable day out. Arrangements for the 2019 National South Island Easter Rally are under way with the Racecourse Complex booked for the venue. David Oakley

Cover picture restoration report as written by Ian Hyde.

1947 FARGO TRUCK Our 1947 Fargo was bought new by Doig Brothers from Pendarves in Mid Canterbury. It’s a Model F.K.1 with a manufacturers rating of 14cwt and first registered in November 1948, the top and back of the cab made in New Zealand. It was used on their farm until 1955 then traded in to Autolines Ashburton who were Dodge, De Soto and David Brown agents. Autolines used it extensively as a service truck and for towing new David Brown tractors and trade-ins around Ashburton county on a trailer until 1966 when we bought it to use on our farm. We used it for 13 years around our farm, then parked it up in a closed shed, starting it only occasionally. In the winter of 2014 I stripped it down to the chassis, fitted new brake pipes and sleeved the wheel cylinders and master cylinder and had it sandblasted and painted by Keith Johnson’s Bus and Truck Ltd. Bus and Truck reshaped the back of the cab and panelbeated the back mudguards and painted the cab and deck. I bought new door handles, headlight rims etc., from Roberts Parts in US and fitted the cab back on and rewired it with a new 6 volt wiring loom I bought from Australia. The engine hadn’t been started for at least 5 years. I put new front and back seals in the engine, replaced the 4 speed crash gearbox I had fitted for using around the farm with an original 3 speed. After putting in fresh fuel, new 6 volt battery, turned it over about 3 times and it started and ra evenly on all 6 cylinders. We have owned it for 51years now. Ed: Thanks Ian for the picture and write up. Hopefully more members will put pen to paper and give us a write up on their car. Hand written is fine it doesn’t need to be typed, just pop it in the mail to: 38 Hastings Street, Kaikoura 7300.

Yet another Aussie Regulation to deal with‌ Exporting your old car to Aussie raises some expensive barriers these days. The buyer must have an import permit under the 1989 rule which is for collector/antique vehicles. Of course there is the steam cleaning etcetera for agriculture protection and fees for all sorts of things. Now they may also require the removal of all asbestos from the vehicle. This includes dismantling the engine and removal of brake and clutch linings. It also appears cheaper to use a RoRo shipping service which goes via Japan, but if you have no brakes or engine power that will not be an option. Happy Days.

Back in time

Copy of the Branch Notes from the Beaded Wheels August/September 1971 supplied by Gavin Smith. Our rally season ended on a high note - in fact two high notes. On Saturday evening June 19, more than forty of the Ashburton members with their wives and friends met at the new Ashburton Hotel for dinner and dancing. The food was good, the music was good and the wine excellent. By the time the fish course was served several couples were trying out the dance floor and after the main course almost everyone was tripping to the light fantastic. A notable absentee from the dance floor was our worthy patron who was suffering from two cracked ribs. It appears that Ralph has bought himself a new bulldozer and the day it arrived he was admiring his new toy and evidently slipped and fell over the thing - the result was two cracked ribs. The moral of the story is - keep away from this new fangled machinery:; a Model T Ford would never treat you as unkindly as this Ralph. All in all a very happy evening with lots of fun and laughter and the general verdict afterwards was - let’s do this again very soon. Sunday brought the second highlight and the virtual end to our 1970-71 season. Ashburton members headed north to meet the Christchurch members who were heading south to the Rakaia Domain. The day was perfect - warm and sunny - and it was a pleasure motoring in an open car. More than twenty cars left Ashburton, the Vintage - covering about thirty five miles and the three Veterans taking the direct route by the main highway to Rakaia. All arrived safely, although Bill Miller had a little clutch trouble with the 1933 Buick. Needless to say he had it fixed and was motoring again in next to no time. By one o’clock there was a good gathering of cars at the Domain and there were little groups of enthusiasts everywhere - some nattering, some admiring and some sitting around on rugs in the sunshine just eating. It was good to see the number of Vintage and Veteran cars that made the journey and I think the eye catchers - as far as the Ashburton cars are concerned - was Mike Crum’s massive Stutz Coupe No doubt the warm, sunny day was the major factor in making the outing such a success and all Ashburton members who made the rally said: “We should do this more often”. Ian Moore was the winner of the Ashburton part of the rally - a natural progression because he was - and to Ian goes the honour of organisng this rally next year. We all owe Colin Bearman and his wife a great big thank you - Colin for organizing the Ashburton part of the rally and his good lady for going on ahead organizing hot water for everyone. And so ends our rally season for 1970-1971. Now it will be the annual meeting, hours in the workshop on repairs and touching up and looking forward to seeing some new Ashburton restorations making their debut in the 1971-72 season. J.R.

Club Night August 17th.

We all met at the clubrooms and were split into 2 groups to look at agate collections and history. We, as the first group went to Malcom Luxton's place. What a sight of a beautiful and colourful collection of agate. Some of the places to find agate include Gawler Downs, Woolshed Creek, Hinds River and Rakaia Gorge, just to mention a few. This collection is absolutely stunning with shelves and shelves of stunning pieces, even to a nice piece of Dinosaur Poo. Malcom has a wealth of knowledge of many agates etc, and was extremely interesting. This is quite a large collection right here in Asburton and is well worth viewing. Next we went to Robin Hall's place where we viewed his beatiful, colourful collection of agate. Again the stunning colour of this collection was excellent. There was also a clock made from a lovely piece of agate. One large piece of rock was from the Rakaia Gorge which had some great colouring, After we viewed his collection we were taken out to his garage where he does all his cutting and polishing. Robin has a large saw which he made himself for cutting the stone in half. Diesel is used to keep the saw cool and give some lubrication whilst cutting. To cut a large stone can take up to 8 days. . Many, many Thanks to Rod McKimmie for a great club night out. Kevin & Bernie. PS. To those who didn't come, you missed a very interesting evening.
