CHAIRMAN’S REPORT// By Ian Elmsly

Welcome to yet another monthly report from the Chair. As we welcome in spring I suppose it has been a bit of a mixed bag with the extremes of rain and then mild temperature and sunshine to tease us that summer is not far away. Fingers crossed! The month kicked of with our committee meeting and the appointment of Paul Eagar to the role of Treasurer and the secondment of Kevin McGrath onto the committee, so thanks to these two for stepping up. As part of the committee discussions this month, the issue of the MAG was on the table and with overall increasing costs of print and postage, we are going to move towards distribution via email. This is a trend that many clubs have already taken, and more are following. It was a decision not made lightly as we all recognise the issues surrounding the MAG, but we also have to be conscious of the overall costs, and the best mechanism for delivery to the majority of members. Accordingly as from January 2019 the MAG will be delivery via email, with a number of hard copies available from the clubrooms on Club Nights and of course on the WEB site. If you have not provided us with your email address, or are worried that we may have an incorrect address, please do so by forwarding an “email” to us at themag.vcc@gmail.com Our Club night had a good number present to hear the stories of Doug & Barbara Bixley “on the couch”. They certainly had many ups & downs mixed with 50 years on VCC membership (for Doug) where they formed October 2018

long term friendships not only locally but spread far and wide. Many thanks for sharing these stories with us. The Sunday run, despite the initial indication of a low turnout, resulted in 16 cars assembling in Gimblett Rd to commence what was the Church Run. Beautiful weather was laid on by the big guy and there lots of history that we may not have realised was on our doorsteps. Well done to Barrie & Lyndsay Browne for organising. Saturday 22nd we hosted the North Shore Club “Spring Run” through our area at a dinner in the Clubrooms. While there numbers were down on the original estimates all up we had a good number of our own members along and over 50 people enjoyed a great night of food and social chit chat. Many thanks to Malcolm & Lesley Blair and Kay for the spread and organising the night and Esther & Graham Smith for welcoming our guests. That’s it from me, safe motoring and enjoy.


CLUB CAPTAIN// By Esther Smith

The National VCC Day continues to get bigger and better, this year the organisers Malcolm and Lesley Blair chose the National Aquarium Car park on Marine Parade as the starting point The area filled up really quickly and there some rather bemused people who were there for other reasons but who got caught up in it as well and just had to wait it out. .

11am. Refer elsewhere in the MAG for details. Maybe the de la Terre winery will be open on the way back.

The weather was great and increased publicity this year meant the influx of people was huge. We had originally planned that cars would start leaving about 1.30. Graham and I with help from Paul and Carol were on duty at the clubrooms to get the afternoon tea ready, and knowing the run was about an hour long, we were in no hurry to get down there. But I got this frantic phone call about 12.45, saying the car park at the aquarium was jam packed they were going to have to start sending people of on the run early.

COMING EVENTS:

Anyway it was a good day we made about $1800 for the cancer Society, thanks to everyone who supported the day, either by giving a hand or by participating. As the run was widely publicised and open to anyone there were lots of different faces at the afternoon tea including some of our members who don’t generally come out on our runs. The September Church Run organised by Barrie Browne, was always going to be interesting, and as I love looking at buildings I was quite excited to see what Barrie had in store for us. We started at Gimlet Gravels, proceeded to Paki Paki, taking the roundabout route to end at St Matthews at Puketapu. The October Club run on Sunday the 14th October is a picnic run to “Waiwhenua” which is on River Road bordering on the Tutaekuri River, we will get there via the Taihape Road. To please those who like a slow start to their Sundays, we will have a relaxed start leaving the clubrooms at

Last chance to get Art deco 2019 entry forms in. If you want to be part of Art Deco rally and parade get your entries in promptly as it fills up quickly. Upcoming events are: • Friday 28th September The Kitchen:, Get your names to Allan and Helen Twort • Wednesday 3rd October. Midweek run. 10.30 am at the clubrooms • Wednesday 10th October- Club night • Sunday 14th of October-Club run to “Waiwhenua”, refer elsewhere in the Mag for full details • Friday 19th-Monday 22nd October Safari • Friday 26th October The Kitchen: Get your names to Allan and Helen Twort The Homestead Run is on Sunday November the 18th, we will be joining in with the CHB branch to visit Waikareaou Station about 25kms from Waipukurau. There will be more details in the next Mag. Bob Ackley is organising a run to see the pheasant chick’s hatching. The property is up Sherenden way. As the pheasants aren’t giving anything away, a date hasn’t been set yet, we will know more nearer the time. It will probably be late November and could be during the week. Also for those heading to Safari, it’s time to be checking your vehicle to ensure everything is in order as Juliette and Harley have got an action packed weekend in store for us. 7


HBVCC COUNTRY RUN WAIWHENUA// SUNDAY 14TH OCTOBER The October Club run on Sunday the 14th October is a picnic run to “Waiwhenua�Which is on River Road bordering on the Tutaekuri River,We will get there via the Taihape Road. 11am Start from the Clubrooms Approximately 55kms each way (no fuel on route) Bring your Picnic Lunch We will picnic in the gardens.

DAFFODIL DAY CLUB RUN// The beautiful day that we ordered arrived much to our relief. The Aquarium Car Park was used for the vehicle display and rally starting point. With a lot of helpers we got everything set up as cars started arriving about 12.30. The car park soon filled up to over flowing with about 127 cars and bikes on display for all to admire. The guys and gals operating the sausage sizzle did a wonderful job and were kept busy selling about 280 sausages which raised $327. The Caffeine & Chills Coffee Cart was very popular and Donna sold 90 cups and donated $45 to our fund raiser.

Kevin and Pauline McGrath won the Rechargeable Torch donated by Repco Auto Parts. Steve and Helen Gray won the Dash Cam donated by BNT. The total raised for The Hawke’s Bay Cancer Society was $1788.50 and we thank everyone for their generosity. We would like to thank all the sponsors for their donated products also Josh David at Goodman Fielder for donating the bread for BBQ. Thank you to the many helpers who made this a great day. Malcolm & Lesley Blair

The Rally commenced about 1.30pm and set off through town and country answering questions on the way, arriving back for afternoon tea at our lovely decorated club rooms. It was such a beautiful afternoon some people had their afternoon tea on the veranda and grass. Everyone enjoyed themselves and there was a lot of chit chat going on. The rally sheets were marked and the winners were found. Jim Lord on his Honda CBX750 won a shirt donated by Ericksen Honda. Mark Singer on his Honda Police Bike CBX750P won a shirt donated by Ericksen Honda. October 2018

MESSAGE FROM NATIONAL PRESIDENT// Perfect weather, generosity and a good cause contributed to the success of our second annual Daffodil Rally for Cancer raising a record $60,000.00! We had great feedback and attendance for the 2017 event and raised $40,000.00 for the Cancer Society. I am delighted that this year we increased the amount raised by 50%, and I am very proud of our Club and our members who were involved. There were over 3000 vehicles either on the road or on display on the day. Twenty-six branches of the VCC were involved this year and all the money raised will stay in their area and be given directly to the local Cancer Society. Many Branches have commented that the response from the general public has been overwhelming, both in attendance and in their generosity. One of the lovely outcomes of this event is the interest generated in the Vintage Car Club, which has resulted in new members. I would like to congratulate and thank those Branches involved in the day for their enthusiasm and effort which has not only benefitted the Cancer Society, but also our Club with the public profile it creates. This day is a wonderful achievement for Branches and members who can be very proud of what they have accomplished. Our National Day has become a special event for the Club, and it can only get bigger and better from here! Pop the date for next year’s Daffodil Rally for Cancer in your diary now‌ SUNDAY 25 AUGUST 2019. Diane Quarrie, National President

THE CHURCH RUN// By Sandra Marsh

Organised by Barrie & Lyndsay Browne, this was a run with a difference. We met at Gimblett Rd, Roys Hill at 9.15 on a beautiful clear Spring morning and set off towards Paki Paki. We were met at the Paki Paki Catholic Church by Charles Ropitini & Hepina Paraha who told us of the history of the Maori Mission which came down from Gisborne and settled at Paki Paki. The first church was built by Sister Suzanne Aubert, a French nun, in the French carpenter Gothic style. This beautiful little wooden church is at present being prepared for restoration. Then the Anglicans built their stone church (designed by Chapman-Taylor). The newest church is the Catholic Church we visited, designed by John Scott. We then went to the Marae gates and saw the War Memorial there & over at the Anglican Church. Then off we set again towards Napier via Ikanui Rd, past the Equippers Church & over Chesterhope Bridge where you can see the small urupa (cemetery) at the original site of the Mission. This church was eventually moved to Meeanee Rd & enlarged to become St Mary’s (The Old Church). We travelled through Brookfields Rd & past the historic St Thomas Church at Meeanee. Our next stop was up by the old Napier Hospital (Crikey this looks different now!) at the Ormond Chapel. We had a lovely morning tea/lunch break in the Botanical Gardens in the warm sun. On down the hill to Coronation St for a comfort stop and a quick look at the old St Mary’s Church just up the road which was Napier’s first Catholic Church.

Back into the cars and a leisurely drive out to Bay View via the new roundabout and Airport entrance off Watchman Rd. Up over the hill and on to SH5 at Eskdale. Barrie opened the church up and we were able to see the War memorabilia inside. This church was built privately as a War Memorial which makes it a little different to most churches. Our last stop was at the Church of St Michael & All Angels at Puketapu. We had our lunch/ afternoon tea on the lawn & then wandered through the cemetery before heading home. Some of us went on to Havelock North to see the movie ’The Song Keepers’. A lovely day out, many thanks to the organisers. Kiaora Barrie and members of the Vintage Car Club. The Paki Paki Whare Karakia Charitable Trust would like to extend our thanks to you for visiting our Pa and for your generous donation towards the restoration of our treasure/taonga. Your beautiful vehicles gracing Miriama Rd added a touch of film stars and movies sets from a bygone era to the day for us, as well as a nod to the recent past in NZ motoring history and motor vehicle design. A treat for our eyes and blessed by a beautiful warm and sunny Sunday morning. We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit and hearing about the history of Paki Paki. Nga mihi Hera Ferris - Kaumatua Ruebena Paraha - Secretary PPWKCT 17

HOOTERS// Ana @ Hooters Hi Folks, Blimey, I almost missed this months mag, where has the time gone! Luckily Kay gave me a friendly reminder, thanks Kay :-) So this month has certainly been entertaining….. I know many of you would have heard through the grapevine but our fearless leader Mr David Brock-Jest is currently stuck in the UK for a while recovering from an operation. Whilst I would love to be telling you a gripping story of head to head racing in some far away land, unfortunately it turns out walking is much more dangerous especially at 4am in Santa Ponza in Palma so it seems. We’ll wait for David to reveal the full story on his return but for now he has had an operation to correct three fractures in his ankle and whilst he has also fractured his shoulder, the doctors have decided that should heal itself. So for now the fearless racing driver is stuck taking life at a much slower pace. It’ll be a few weeks till he can fly again but we wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to having him back soon. The Hooters team have been hard at it with a 16 vehicle convoy to start the season off. 14 Vintage Cars, our Vintage Ford Bus and the Hawkes Bay Express Road Train all teamed up to transfer

a whopping 109 people for a conference last Sunday. As you can imagine that was some logistical planning but we certainly pulled it off well and our guests had a fantastic time. Well, except for one poor lady who’s husband forced her into an open top and even with the blankets she was a little chilly on arrival. We were extremely thankful that the Hawke’s Bay weather held out for us and the sun was out for the whole day which meant we had a great mix of open and closed tops to suit. The group haven’t released their photos yet so here is a couple from behind the scenes…

We are looking forward to having the North Shore VCC round for a visit this weekend and the Porsche Club next weekend. It’s all go for the Hooters team, we are flat out doing driver training both new drivers and those that might have got a little rusty over the winter break. We are busy preparing our seasons offerings and updating all our marketing material. Not long now before that first ship arrives and then it’s all hands on deck to help welcome our visitors and show them just why the best way to travel in our Art Deco Capital is by vintage splendor of course. Well that’s it for another month, be seeing you… 19


MESSAGES TO CLUB MEMBERS// FROM ROSS HOLDEN: COMMUNICATIONS OFFICER Hello everyone. 1. Any help with this inquiry from Oliver would be appreciated. “Hi I’m in the South Canterbury branch but I’m going to be doing up a 75-76 Datsun 180b. Would you please ask the other branches if there is someone that might have parts?” 2. Here is a request from Khalid. Khalid writes. My grandfather has a Morris 10/4, 1933 and is looking for some kingpins to re do the car, can anyone help? 3. Another request, this time from Grant. Hi - was recommended by a fellow enthusiast to ask on here of my dilemma, being a lover of old cars with owning currently a 68 mustang, 67 Mk1Mini and now a 57 A35 Austin van which is in a full restore at 85%. One of my trafficators I think, has an internal melt down (just big sparks when connected). Can anyone aid me by having a working spare in their box of bits? The model in question is a SF80. I am located in Carterton. If anyone can help with any of these requests please send an email on the email address below and I will forward it on. Thank you. Ross Holden, Communications Officer, phone 021 2638488, email comms@vcc.org.nz

CLUB SPARE PARTS CORNER// For any enquiries phone Brian Taylor on 027 4436009 or contact the Club’s Spares Dept. on Tuesday mornings between 9am & 11am on 06 835 1483. PARTS FOR A 1913 MORRIS BULLNOSE I am in the process of a cosmetic restoration. I have found damaged odds and sods, including a timber hood bow that will require replacement as I don’t believe that it is repairable, so I am looking for someone who may be able to manufacture one for me. In addition, the magneto holddown strap has disappeared and as a result, I cannot secure the mag properly, so am looking for one. There strap is a double band, roughly 1” wide (externally) and has a rounded bar crimped in horizontally at either end that fits into the securing hooks that fix it to the mounting plate. The mag strap is probably the most critical for me. I am also looking for a horn bulb for the brass squeeze horn as the original has long since perished. Norm Findlay, my father was a foundation member of the HBVCC having been a member up until his passing in 1996. If anyone can help please contact Glynn Findlay: glynnfin@bigpond.com or ph 0407 939 728. October 2018


STORIES// Stories by Barbara Bixley

Furthermore to ‘Sitting on the Couch’ at the September Club night I forgot to mention the following stories….PART 1. We bought the 10 acres of bare land in Mangateretere in 1969. We then planted pumpkins and produced a huge crop, which we stacked in bins and along the back fence. When it came time to clean and sack them up to sell, I found that we had attracted a lot of unwelcome guests – in the form of rats. Being a townie, I had never seen so many rats in my life!! The rats were not content with just having a nibble on a few and had instead decided to eat a large amount of the pumpkins. One day a huge one ran out, taunting me, and disappeared into the other end of the stack. When Doug arrived home, I asked him to shoot the pumpkin-eating, cat-sized rat.

» The Bixley’s on the Thornycroft with the International Apple Tree which had 119 different varieties from 31 different countries

He stood on the inside of the fence, aiming his gun as I lifted the pumpkins one by one. Finally, I could see a tail and yelled out to Doug before throwing the pumpkin up. He shot and missed. The rat took off, running zigzags across the bare field. Doug yelled for me to chase it, so I quickly ran after it. I caught up to it a few times, but I didn’t know what to do - I had bare feet and nothing in my hands! Doug was yelling so much encouragement that the neighbours came over and joined in, egging me on. The fiasco finally ended when Doug climbed over the fence and killed it with the butt of the gun. The following year, we borrowed more money and planted half an acre of boysenberries, a quarter-acre of strawberries and the rest in apples, peaches, plums, nectarines. We then

» As we bought the Thornycroft in 1966 planted all kinds of vegetables in between the rows. We then chose the name ‘Thornycroft Orchard’ because we would park our Thornycroft truck out by the road. We did many things in the Thornycroft truck. We used to take the truck for joyrides around the orchard and we could even do a 180 turn with the solid tyres when the grass was wet. We would also go driving at night and take torches, so we would not drive over too many of the young trees and we even drove it in the Blossom and Ranfurly Shield parades in the early seventies. More to follow next month. 21
