Chairman's Report December 2018 Just home from a well-attended November meeting. Thought I had better put pen to paper for my Monthly report as Daphne and I have the Cadillac loaded up in its trailer and we are away early in the morning to the National Veteran Rally being held in Nelson this coming weekend. Looking forward to the event although the hills around Nelson could be a challenge with the Cadillac only having rear wheel brakes and weighing over 2000kgs!! I suspect my Ford Ranger will consume a lot of diesel with that load on behind!! Last time I rallied up there was back in, I think, 1972 with Alex McLennan in his 1914 Renault. Great to welcome three new members, Michael, Ben and Sol Wyatt from Gore with their 1939 Chev and 1957 Vauxhall Cresta. Looking forward to seeing them out on Club runs. Thanks to all members who helped with the Targa marshalling. We had over 30 members out and about on the stage and at the Showgrounds marshalling and displaying 12 cars from our club. Great effort. I enjoyed the P60 Run to Thornbury in my Morris Minor. Great day out motoring on some roads that I have never travelled. We are certainly spoilt for choice here in Southland for Fantastic motoring. I was planning to run my Escort Mk 1 Sport in the Josephville hill climb but will have to wait to next year as its clashes with the Veteran Rally. Until next month. Happy motoring Greg Elder

Club Captain’s Report December 2018 The P60 Run on the 28th of October saw a total of 12 cars travel an interesting route to Lorneville for lunch and then on to the Thornbury vintage museum. It was a great day out and thanks to Ken Buchanan and Keith Nunn for their efforts in organising everything. Unfortunately, Ken’s health didn’t play ball and he ended up in hospital and not on the run. He is back on deck now and the doctors still don’t know why he had the dizzy spells! Let’s hope he doesn’t get any more. I hope to see you all at the Christmas Run on the 9th of December. This will be more of a social event than a rally so bring some food for a pot-luck BBQ and decorate your car for Christmas. Keith Nunn has decided to reduce the overnight run that was proposed for January 19th & 20th down to a day trip. Look for the advert later in The Wiper. The issue I talked about last month regarding start times for Sunday runs was discussed at the November meeting. Most runs are on a Sunday to avoid children’s or grandchildren’s sport and also some members work Saturdays. We will leave the majority of runs on Sundays but if any run requires an early start due to the distance being travelled we will move it to a Saturday. As the saying goes “You can’t please all of the people all of the time”. John Parish

From the Editor’s keyboard As those of you who were paying attention will remember, Donna and I are in the UK at present, and are now getting towards the end of a rather hectic six weeks of travelling around NZ and the UK. This edition of The Wiper has, therefore, been put together on the run with a laptop in hotels. Any mistakes are the result of the inevitable shortcomings of this process and I apologise in advance if I have got anything wrong or missed anything out! Our travels have meant that we missed attending the P60 Run, the Josephville Hillclimb and the November Tuesday Ramble so I would like to thank those members who have sent, or will be sending, reports and/or photos of the three events. A very big “Thank You” to Raewyn and Keith Dodds who have once again stepped up in my absence and volunteered to handle the folding, addressing and posting of this edition as well as making sure that the Tuesday Ramblers got copies for themselves and for hand delivery. Christmas shutdown and The Wiper: to get the next edition printed in time, I MUST receive all copy BEFORE the 18th December. Finally, as this is the last issue of The Wiper that most of you will receive before the big day, I would like to wish you all a very Happy Christmas. David North

New Members A very warm welcome to three more new members, Michael, Ben and Sol Wyatt of Gore. Their VCC cars are a 1939 Chevrolet Master DeLuxe and a 1957 Vauxhall Cresta, two very motorable models. We look forward to seeing the cars (and owners) on a run very soon. From the Editorial point of view, an introductory story about the cars and the owners would be very welcome! The Editor 6

Opening Run 2018 (16th September) A good variety of 16 cars turn out for the first run of the season. We opted for the long run. We were not told of the distance, but I am sure everybody ended up doing more miles than they were supposed to. The long run took us east out of Gore along MacGibbon Road which runs along the Waikaka River, giving a rear view of the new milk plant, till we hit the State Highway 1. Next instruction was a left into McDonald Road, no sign post so we carried on with the navigator saying it would be the next one! We went as far as Landslip Road then turned back to the road with no name! Plain sailing after that, nice gravel roads and interesting countryside took us up the Waikaka Valley then across to Chatton and through Otama past the broken Pyramid Bridge, across the Waipounamu Bridge, back through Riversdale and on to the Clubrooms for a chat and pot luck dinner. An interesting Opening Run thanks to Keith and Linda. Oh, and we won it! Stew Quertier [Congratulations Stewart, and thank you for the write-up. The Editorial Toyota and crew also took part in this Run, and we too missed the “road with no name” but we went an awful lot further before we realised! There should have been some photos to accompany this, but the Editor left them on his home computer. With a bit of luck, they might appear in the next edition of “The Wiper”. The Editor]

Targa NZ VCC Time Trial (Part 1) I first heard about the inclusion of a VCC “class” in the Targa NZ Rally back in January and this, coupled with the news that Targa was again coming to the South Island, piqued my interest. The dates for the Rally were the 21st to the 28th October 2018, inclusive and this fitted in with our planned trip to the UK in early November. I made initial enquiries and signed up to the “Register of Interest” with the VCC co-ordinator for the event, Rod Corbett. The answers to my initial enquiries indicated that a “standard road-going VCC car” would be very suitable and that entrants would be responsible for arranging their own accommodation, meals etc. As this was to be the first time VCC cars would be part of the Targa, I was very keen to give it a go, partly for the chance to drive the Editorial Toyota on closed roads and partly because if nobody entered the first time there probably wouldn’t be a second chance! Then, at the end of February, we heard that the event was definitely on and, to quote the Targa NZ-VCC South Island Time Trial 2018 InfoNews #2, “The aim is to create a unique motoring spectacle of older vehicles being driven & displayed, to encourage new & younger people to join VCC, & give existing VCC members opportunity to drive their classic & vintage cars for 5 days over iconic sealed roads through Southland, Otago & Central Otago. This is not a speed event, but rather an exercise in precise driving & time-keeping to maintain a set average speed through all closed stages, (with the safety of knowing that all participants have staggered start times, drive in the same direction, on the same road, with nothing coming towards them!)” The next update came in March with news that there would be a briefing day at the Highlands Park race circuit in April, when we would get full details of the event – and have the chance to drive our cars on the circuit! Unfortunately, a week before the briefing day we were informed that we would not, after all, be able to take to the circuit, which was a slight disappointment but obviously something that we could do nothing about.

12


The briefing day allowed us to meet some of the other interested VCC people, as well as some of the “Targa Tour” entrants. We were given a lot of information about how the whole event would be run, including examples of the “Road Book”, which would be our “Bible” for the event, with all the route instructions as “Tulip” diagrams. We had ample opportunity to ask questions and my initial misgivings about fitting a fire extinguisher and other possible modifications to the Editorial Toyota were dispelled. We now also knew that we could choose between a set average speed of 50 or 70kph for the special stages. I thought that 70kph sounded a fairly easy target as our everyday car’s computer told me that we had averaged 64kph over the 30,000 kms we had so far driven it. I would only have to drive a little bit more quickly than normal, and I rarely exceeded an indicated 90 to 95kph on the open road. To coin a phrase, “How hard could it be?” The day finished with the opportunity to practise the use of the Tulip diagrams, but we felt we were sufficiently familiar with them from the Vero Rally so gave that a miss. Entries opened at the end of April, with a reduced, “Early Bird” entry fee until the 30th June. I found I had a lot of reading to do as we received the entry forms, Targa regulations and VCC Time Trial Supplementary Regulations. Parts of these raised questions, mostly around provisions which it seemed could not reasonably apply to the VCC cars. With reassurances from the VCC co-ordinator, I submitted our entry and payment and set about making provisional accommodation bookings in Invercargill, Dunedin and Queenstown, the three centres for the Rally. During July and August we were sent further information, including an event programme and were asked for a photo of the Editorial Toyota for inclusion in the NZ Classic Car magazine Targa supplement. It was all getting very real, especially with the news that there were now 22 confirmed VCC entries, some of whom, including Ken and Jill Muir from Gore, had joined the VCC specifically so they could take part in the event. The oldest VCC car was a 1929 Rolls-Royce and the two youngest were a Toyota and a BMW, both from 1986. To be continued……. David North 13


The Bravest Fire Fighters One dark night in a local township a fire started inside the chemical plant and in a blink of an eye it exploded into massive flames. The alarm went out to all the fire departments for miles around. When the volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene, the chemical company president rushed to the fireman in charge and said, "All our secret formulas are in the vault in the centre of the plant... They must be saved. I will give $50,000 to the fire department that brings them out intact." But the roaring flames held the fire-fighters off. Soon more fire departments had to be called in as the situation became desperate. As the firemen arrived, the president shouted out that the offer was now $100,000 to the fire station who could bring out the company's secret files. But still the fire departments could not get through. From the distance, a lone siren was heard as another fire truck came into sight. It was the nearby rural township volunteer fire department, composed mainly of fighters over the age of 65. To everyone's amazement, that little run-down fire engine roared right past all the newer sleek engines that were parked outside the plant... Without even slowing down it drove straight into the middle of the inferno. Outside, the other firemen watched as the old timers jumped off right in the middle of the fire and fought it back on all sides. It was a performance and effort never seen before. Within a short time, they had extinguished the fire and had saved the secret formulas. The grateful chemical company president announced that for such a superhuman feat he was upping the reward to $200,000 and walked over to personally thank each of the brave fire fighters. The local TV station caught the thank you on film and asked the fire chief, "What are you going to do with all that money?" "Well," said the 70-year-old fire chief, "The first thing we gonna do is fix the brakes on that damn fire truck!" Anon 14

A Scottish Love Story A young Scottish lad and lass were sitting on a low stone wall, holding hands, gazing out over the loch. For several minutes they sat silently. Then finally the girl looked at the boy and said, “A penny for your thoughts, Angus.” “Well, uh, I was thinkin, perhaps it’s aboot time for a wee kiss.” The girl blushed, then leaned over and kissed him lightly on the cheek. Then he blushed. The two turned once again to gaze out over the loch. Minutes passed and the girl spoke again. “Another penny for your thoughts, Angus?” “Well, uh, I was thinkin’ perhaps it’s noo aboot time for a wee cuddle.” The girl blushed, then leaned over and cuddled him for a few seconds. Then he blushed. And the two turned once again to gaze out over the loch. After a while, she again said, “Another penny for your thoughts, Angus.” “Well, uh, I was thinkin’ perhaps it’s aboot time you let me put my hand on your leg.” The girl blushed, then took his hand and put it on her knee. Then he blushed. Then the two turned once again to gaze out over the loch before the girl spoke again. “Another penny for your thoughts, Angus.” The young man glanced down with a furled brow. “Well, noo,” he said, ‘my thoughts are a wee bit more serious this time.’ “Really?” said the lass in a whisper, filled with anticipation. “Aye,” said the lad, nodding. The girl looked away in shyness, began to blush, and bit her lip in anticipation of the ultimate request. Then he said, “Dae ye nae think it’s aboot time ye paid me the first three pennies?” Anon 21


Trophy Presentations, 28th October 2018 Before the start of the P60 Run the Branch Chairman, Greg Elder, presented four trophies to members who didn’t attend the Annual Dinner and Trophy Night:

Q. What do you call a woman who stands between goal posts? A. Annette 22


P60 Run 28th October 2018 Twelve cars left the club rooms for the P60 Run on an overcast Sunday. We went down through Waimumu, Te Tipua, Dacre then to Morton Mains, south through Rimu to Kennington, then on to North Makarewa. We stopped at Lorneville at the White House Hotel for an enjoyable lunch. The dessert was to die for! After lunch we continued our run on to the Thornbury Rural Heritage Centre. We were greeted by members of the Centre who gave us a brief history of the early settlers in the Riverton, Thornbury, Waimatuku areas. This was most informative. After this introduction, we split into two groups for a guided tour of four sheds and a workshop. There was a wide range of early tractors and machinery, both farming and industrial. One of the sheds contained a variety of early household articles, which the women enjoyed looking at. There was an amazing array of vintage machinery and equipment throughout all the sheds. We could have easily spent all day there poking around amongst the various sheds. There was something for everyone and the presentation of the displays was a credit to the Thornbury Rural Heritage Centre. From Thornbury we travelled to Isla Bank, Drummond then Winton. It was time for an ice cream! It was the first ice cream we had bought which was actually weighed!! From Winton to Browns, Hedgehope then home. We travelled on roads we had not been on before and had a most enjoyable day. Thanks to Ken Buchanan and Keith Nunn for organising the Run. Athol & Margaret Martyn

“Silver Surfers” As we “Silver Surfers” know, sometimes we have trouble with our computers. Yesterday, I had a problem, so I called Eddie, the 11-year-old next door, whose bedroom looks like Mission Control, and asked him to come over. Eddie clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem. As he was walking away, I called after him, 'So, what was wrong? He replied, “It was an ID ten T error.” I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, 'An, ID ten T error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again.' Eddie grinned, “Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?” “No,” I replied. “Write it down,” he said, “and I think you'll figure it out.” So I wrote down: ID10T I used to like Eddie, the clever little B…..!

Editorial and Tuesday Ramblings The Tuesday Ramble on the 30th October was the last Branch event the Editorial Toyota and crew attended before our UK trip – and one that we only just managed to squeeze in. Donna and I had been away on the Targa NZ VCC Time Trial from the 22nd to the 28th of October. The next day, I was in Invercargill in the morning getting the Targa livery taken off the Toyota and collecting The Wiper from the printers. The afternoon was spent folding and addressing The Wiper ready for distribution. Tuesday Ramble day started rather dull and overcast, but dry, a relief for the riders in the Tour of Southland who we watched set off on the Riverton stage before we left for the Ramble. We were headed for the car park at Edendale where we met up with the other Ramblers who had departed from the Clubrooms. From there it was but a short journey to the Kirbys’ house where we all had a chat while we enjoyed a delicious home-baked morning tea prepared by Jean.

26


Following that, we had a scenic drive to the café at Fortrose where, rather too soon for some, we had lunch. This was “own choice” from the menu, and many and varied were the choices, but all substantial and tasty. Lunch was, of course, accompanied by more chatting!

After lunch we were treated to Jim McFadzien telling us all about his family’s connections to the area. These go back to the very early days of European settlement when the Scottish influence on Southland and Otago was first being established. This was followed by Jean Kirby’s tales of going to school and growing up in and around the Fortrose area. (I have asked both to supply their fascinating stories to The Wiper so that everybody can enjoy them. The Editor.)

27


Although I found Jean’s reminiscences very interesting, it seemed that some of the audience might have heard it all before! After the talks, some of the Ramblers were going off to look at a lighthouse a bit further into the Catlins, others were returning home, and we were going back to Riverton via Invercargill and Gore as we had calls and deliveries to make. The next two days passed in a blur of ironing, packing, emailing and generally preparing for a trip to Dunedin on the 2nd of November and Aoraki/Mount Cook on the 3rd for the Aoraki Spring Classic organised by David and Christine Mehrtens (of Mainland Classic and Autumn Colours fame) in our modern car, the Fiat 124 Spider Abarth. This was immediately followed by a drive to Christchurch on the 5th of November to catch flights to Auckland and the UK where we were to be visiting friends and family (and doing a few “car things”) for four weeks. More on these trips (and the Targa VCC Time Trial) later! David North 28
