CHAIRMAN’S REPORT// By Ian Elmsly

As the year rapidly draws to a close, it is a time to reflect back on the year that was. Sadly during the course of the year we had members pass and our sincere sympathies go to their families. From the Chair, I would like to thank the committee for all their efforts, particularly over the past six months of my tenure. Without this committed group the club would not function so a big thank you from me. To our general membership, thank you for your support in attending the meetings, kitchen nights, rallies and events and general mucking in. Without you we would definitely not have a club. Over the past couple of months, you will have noticed a slight change in our meeting as we move to have a slightly less formal atmosphere, where you are welcome to enjoy a tipple and we kick back a little. I hope you enjoy this style. The November meeting saw numbers up on the previous month and we had an interesting talk from Doug Dickson on his visit to the USA and the antics of his brother-in-law in building a “Stanley Steamer” from scratch together with an assortment of other projects. We were joined by guests Brent and Helen Rollinson, introduced by Richard & Hilary Anderson. Hope you enjoyed the night and that we see you again.

December 2017

Our annual Homestead Run was held on the 12th, and despite threatening weather we had 32 “old” cars and a number of moderns assemble at the Hastings Market. A great run and interesting homes plus the bonus of lunch in a woolshed out of the bitter wind. We also had the Ladies Lunch held at Vidal’s in Hastings, and I am told it was a great success with 29 ladies enjoying a lunch away from “car talk”. Thanks to Kay for organising. Our next club night on the 13th Dec will be our Christmas Auction and the last meeting for the year, This promises to be a good night, so wrap up the mystery parcels, load up the tipple bag (that helps loosen the wallet strings!) and come along for the ride. We are fortunate to have the services of an internationally acclaimed auctioneer to run the show so let’s have some fun! And then we move to the last event of the year and that is the club run on the 17th Dec. See the ad in The Mag and put your name down. So that’s it for me. Kay & I would like to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Drive safely and enjoy whatever you have planned.


CLUB CAPTAIN// By Esther Smith

Another month has come and gone. With some interesting events along the way. Last club night, was a test of who had read and then actually bothered to remember the content of our Chairman’s previous report. Ian had suggested that we bring along some refreshments if we wished to, many did so top marks to them. Thanks to Doug Dickson who gave an interesting talk at club night about the construction of a replica Stanley steam car which is been undertaken by this brother in law , I loved the optional extra of a steam heated kettle which was fixed to a running board, talk about recycling energy, and sure saves having to take a thermos. Earlier in the month we catered a lunch at the clubrooms for the Classic Car Sunday Club, this club is based in Palmerston North and was doing a circuit down through the Gentle Annie. They thoroughly enjoyed the lunch and our venue, we made a profit of nearly $800.00 so everyone was happy . Thanks to Lesley Blair and Kay Elmsly for organising the catering. The homestead run has been and gone for another year I always feel a great sense of relief at the end of it. I really appreciated stopping at the Patengata Pub for a drink on the way home it was most welcome, as I’d been looking forward to it all day. The run takes a bit of organising and a lot of phone calls, then there is the weather. It looked ok in Napier but I had spoken to Mike Green about 8 in the morning, he said it was drizzling lightly and did not look like clearing down their way, well it was too late to cancel, we could only hope. However I did make a call to take the Humber instead of the Chev tourer. So I had to admire those who were braver than us and stuck to open cars.

Fortunately the weather was kind in the end, although we did change to an indoor lunch venue, with Mike having organised the old Woolshed at Aramoana for us. Our annual auction will be on the December Club night, so time to be on the lookout for amazing objects to bring along. The more amusing or outrageous the better. We will also be doing a collection for the foodbanks so please bring along a suitable item of food or make a donation. The Children’s Christmas Party is on Sunday 3rd of December at 10.30 am. Get your numbers to Hilary ASAP. We need to know. Bring a named present for the child and a plate of food for the shared lunch. The club will be putting on some barbecued sausages. Club Run on Sunday the 17th. Steve Donovan also needs numbers, refer elsewhere in the mag for details. COMING EVENTS: Upcoming events are: • Children’s Christmas Party –Sunday 3rd of December 1 • December 13th Club Night-Annual Auction (bring a donation for the foodbank as well) • Christmas Barbecue run organised by Steve Donovan–Sunday 17th December • Jan 28th 2018 an informal run The January run on the 28th will be a very informal run we will meet behind the Waipawa shops off Kenilworth St. at 10.30am. We will go tiki touring to end at the Tikokino hotel for lunch about 1pm. As I will need to let the pub know approx. numbers please RSVP by Wednesday 24th Jan. email or phone. 7

HOMESTEAD RUN// By Marion Crocker

The annual Homestead run has been a feature of the Hawkes Bay Vintage Car Club calendar for many years. It is always a popular and well attended run, allowing members an opportunity not only to enjoy roads less travelled, but also glimpses of the history of Hawkes Bay, insights into ways of life long gone, and the craftsmanship of the past. It also provides an opportunity to meet the present owners and hear stories of their families, their histories, and the passion they invest into maintaining the Homesteads. This year, the run to Omakere and Aramoana, including a lunch stop at the historic woolshed at Aramoana, (Plan B) upheld the tradition of these runs. Despite the inclement weather, 45 cars left Hawkes Bay Farmers Market in Hastings. Cars on the run included a very brave topless Sprite convertible, and a considerable number of Triumphs - they appear to be the coming thing, someone suggested, outnumbering Model A’s. The run followed a route down Middle Rd, passed Patangata, and then headed toward the coast, turning down Omakere Road to the Omakere Homestead. This homestead is set beautifully within a background of trees, including two very large Redwoods planted in the 1870’s. The present owner, Charles Nairn Jnr, told us something of the history of the Nairn family and of the building of the homestead between 1919 and 1921. The first Nairn came to New Zealand in the early 1840’s and after spending time exploring the South Island, including developing the Milford Track, made his way back to Wellington. He drove a flock of sheep along the coast, establishing the farming venture on 6000 acres that had been purchased from the Pourere Station in 1880. Since then, parts of the original block have been subdivided and sold off. The present homestead, built after a fire destroyed the original, was built of brick made on the site. The interior was lined with

redwood, a timber selected because it does not burn easily. The house was built by the present owner’s great grandfather in 1929 for his would be bride, Beatrice. The marriage was deferred until the brides elderly mother died, the couple only living in the home for three years before …. Nairn died leaving his widow with a farm to run, and two sons to raise. His brother came to assist her, and in keeping with the social proprieties of the day, lived in quarters above the garage. Club member Bruce Carrad recalled painting the property in the early 1950’s. The height of the front was a challenge requiring two ladders to be tied together to achieve the necessary length. (Possibly not a solution available to the present owners!) He also remembered the then owners Austin A 70 being driven across the pit and being hosed underneath to get rid of the accumulated road dirt. Following this visit, many of the group took the opportunity to explore Pourere Beach before heading to Aramoana Woolshed where we were able to have our lunch in dry wind free conditions. The Aramoana woolshed was built more than 100 years ago in 1906 on concrete piles with heart kauri, Used until 2005, the woolshed still has all its working parts, including a hydraulic wool press from 1911. In 2009 the Aramoana Environmental and Education Charitable Trust, returned the historic woolshed from a faded relic to a freshly painted landmark offering a huge range of education opportunities with historic buildings, rare birds and environmental reserves, attracting students from many institutions and countries. In 2011, an intense storm attacked the Hawke’s Bay coastal strip, and among the damage caused, a landslide shunted the woolshed off its piles and moved it about 400 millimetres. It seemed that despite the endeavours of the previous years the woolshed would be written off. Club member Mike Green spoke of the efforts to restore the shed, and that 17

HOMESTEAD RUN CONT. when it was pulled (or was it pushed?) back on to the piles it resumed its shape and was able to be rebuilt again. Following the visit to the woolshed, a short drive led to the Aramoana Homestead. This amazing building remains a symbol of the astonishing wealth that was generated in the early years of sheep farming in the area. This homestead, designed by Napier architect DB Frame, was built in 1894, following the building of the Homestead at Blackhead. The front turret was modelled on a Scottish Castle and retains as much grandeur today as possible, by a wooden structure modelled on a stone one. The details of the building, inside and out are very interesting and highlight the skills of those long ago craftsmen building without the use of power tools, or the many other conveniences now taken for granted. Concrete piles were used on the buildings at Aramoana because of the lack of timber suitable for piles and this has helped in the maintenance of the buildings, by keeping the

structures stable . The heart kauri timber that the homestead was built from was surfed into shore. The present occupant Chip McHardy and his family, explained that family tradition has the home been passed down to the elder son, but his older brother declined the privilege so he was left to manage. He spoke of the ongoing maintenance and the energy required to maintain the houseparticularly in light of the many earthquakes that are a feature of the area- and the positive support of a wife who does not notice the tears in the wallpaper. The ground floor has a 14 foot stud, so that takes some maintaining. Members were intrigued by the downstairs wallcovering, designed to give the appearance of tin panelling, but actually a type of thick wallpaper called lynctruster. There is much more that could be said about the day that lived up to the best club traditions. Thanks to Esther and Graham for arranging the run, and all those in the back ground who assisted.

HOOTERS// Ana @ Hooters Hi Folks, Well we are almost officially into summer 2017 and it feels great. The sun is shining, the nights are lighter and you can feel that summer buzz in the air! The 1928 Hudson Super Six has now arrived and she is a beauty:

Love that number plate! This month has certainly seen the team getting ready for summer with several multi-car convoy tours and conference fun. It’s been a Hoot!

As I write this we have just completed a whopping 14 car 4 hour progressive dinner convoy and the clients loved it. A Hooters City Tour followed by a vineyard tour, tasting and starter at Church Road Winery, then a scenic drive out to Ormlie Lodge for mains, desserts and awards. Apologies to anyone out there being held up by a convoy of travelling vintage cars. Have to say most people are fantastic, they see the convoy coming and stop to let us past. It’s hugely appreciated, as most of you well know, keeping 14 cars in convoy is no easy feat. ‘My Hup’ was certainly smoking a little after just replacing the head gasket so to be safe we did a quick switch to the lovely ‘Rene’ the Citroen at Church Road and I’m not sure any of our guests would actually of noticed as we actively encouraged them to swap cars and experience a couple of vintage cars during their evening. The cruise ships will certainly be keeping us busy shortly with the Golden Princess and Norwegian Jewel both in this coming week and December sees 13 ships come in to Napier Port. As usual David has his eye on another one, no spoilers here but watch this space…… I guess this is the December mag, so hope you all have a fantastic festive season. :-) Well that’s it for another month, be seeing you…
