Chairman’s Report Greetings All I deserve a medal, 5 grandchildren here for a week on school holidays. (Gone now, phew!) 2 girls so bossed about all week by three women. I suppose I will get over it, anyway over to club business. April River City Park up at City college was a great success with 35-40 of our cars on show. We were the winners of the Wanganui Road Rodders River City Park up, “Best presented Group” trophy for the year. (See photo on the right) It will be displayed in the Trophy Cabinet. ON 15 April we had the Scatter Run, organised by Peter Hardy. A great turnout of cars and the only complaint being that they were painting Chef’s Choice Building but as Pete said, you only had to look on the door for the answer. It was fun and if you look at Dave McDermid’s report further on in this Rivet you can read all about it. On Wednesday, 18 April, 8 members of the Wanganui VCC travelled to Palmerston North to the PNVCC, to support their club night. We were all individually acknowledged by the Chair, (the only woman at the meeting) and enjoyed a very interesting evening. Derek Haycock gave a display and talk on the Reproduction Fuel Pressure Pumps he is making and selling oversea for veteran cars. Brian Rankine then gave an interesting talk on the history and restoration of the 1902 Mathieu car. Ian Chamberlain (panel work) and Mike Khull (wood work) had the pleasure of working on this historic vehicle which is now almost complete. The 36th Castrol Motorcycle Rally was held at Club Rooms. What a great weekend. Good entries, good crowds, good organisation. Well done! Bill and Heather, Jay and Linda K., and helpers showed great team work. Grandson Joshue and I were privileged to welcome and present the rally prizes and assist with marshalling. Club member Geoffrey Lawson spoke at the May Club night. Well what can I say? If you weren’t there you missed an entertaining evening. Geoff spoke about the Krupp Gun, its restoration and research of this gun and the books he has written. One of the books is about the gun but the other is a novel called

Forgiven, a great novel about the Boer War and the times in Whanganui during that period of history. It’s a great read with lots of local references. There will not be a Sunday run during May. Instead we are having a working bee, Saturday 19 from 9am to 12:30pm. We need to wash the Clubrooms, do the trees, clean the gutters, and so on so bring your tools if you have them. The June “Annual’ Rally is fast approaching so get your entries in to Linda O’K. Rally if you can but we are still looking for Marshalls. Approach Jim O’Neill if you can help. Don’t forget the AGM is in June and that’s fast approaching too. Remember that all of the positions are available so fill out the nomination form in this Rivet and get them to the Secretary. Fay Chamberlain and Dave Whiteside have both indicated that they will be stepping down so these positions will need to be filled, as will all the others. Please give it some thought and think about it. We all need to take a turn in the running of our Club! Please remember that if you are not a VCC member, then you cannot claim a Vero Insurance special premium as some of our ex members have found out!

Bruce A. One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head. She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, 'Why are some of your hairs white, Mum?' Her mother replied, 'Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white.' The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, 'Mummy, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?'

36th Castrol Motorcycle Trial 2018

Due to unforeseen circumstances I became tail end charlie for our 36th Annual Castrol Motorcycle Trial. It was very good to have Sam Wilson's motorcycle trailer for the event and I had only done 6 miles when I found the first break down. The battery had called it quits! So onto the trailer and it was nice having a navigator for the rest of the morning. There were 36 competitors and after a briefing at 9am the first bike was away at 9.30. The run took the bikes on back roads through Westmere, Kai iwi, Waitotora and onto Waverley Beach for a compulsory 5 minute stop. Here I found our second and last breakdown, and our youngest rider (28 years old) on his 1976 Suzuki with a main drive problem. The bike and rider were quickly loaded and then onto the lunch stop at Whenuakura where the ladies from the school had put together a very yummy lunch. A few of the riders completed a lap of the old Whenuakura racing circuit from the 1950's led by Colin Tate on his 1961 Norton Dominator.

Thanks to Dick Mottram who brought the trailer with the breakdowns back to Wanganui and left my empty van for any more. Thankfully there were none. The riders returned to Wanganui via different back roads to afternoon tea at the clubrooms. We had a great dinner and prize giving Saturday night and the overall winner was Pat Steer from the Taranaki branch on his 1955 Velocette. Pat had to decide between the Taranaki branch's Maunga Moana Rally (which was held on the same weekend) and our Motorcycle Trial. He decided to come to Wanganui as he has not missed one here for some years. I guess he's glad he chose to come here as he also won the John Kendrick Memorial trophy for the most desirable British single cylinder. The Coleman cup which is awarded for the highest scoring local VCC member was won by Sam Wilson. Sunday morning Keiran Whitham gave the riders a tour of Elite Engineering and showed what is done there. Then back to Vince and Lesley's for a BBQ lunch where Selby Allison arrived to show off his Mazda RX8 which he has recently converted from petrol to electric. There was a lot of interest and many questions. A huge thank you to all the club members and friends that helped make the trial another success.

Club Run Sunday 15 April 2018 When Peter Hardy announced that our club Sunday run for the 15th April would be a Scatter Run fellow members were confused. No one had even heard of a Scatter Run. We had heard of all sorts of runs and rally’s, but a Scatter Run was a new one to all of us. He said it was a great idea and he thought/hoped we would enjoy it. He further advised that ‘Jim and Dick’ had tested out the route and it worked fine, and if they could do the Scatter Run then we should all be able to. Sunday 15 April duly rolled around and was a fine, sunny and warm day. A huge improvement on the preceeding week’s weather and perfect for vintage and classic motoring. Not so good for me, I almost didn’t make it, the Model A broke its Bendix starter spring and my navigator was sick. Armed with a manual starter, crank handle, and with out, she who gives instructions, I was off and made it just in time. Twenty cars were assembled at the club rooms by 1pm for Peter’s briefing. At last we would find out what on earth a Scatter Run was. Each driver participating was given a set of numbered questions and a map with the locations of the answers numbered corresponding to the questions. The locations had to be visited to answer the questions and the number of points scored. Locations furthest away from the clubrooms scoring the highest points. Those closer having a lower value of points The final catch was that you had Glynis Robinson recieving their prize 1½ hours to do the run. Those for winning the Scatter Run last month returning to the clubrooms after that time would have points deducted. Continued.

You were free to set your own route and visit as many or as few locations as time allowed. Start time was 1-15pm and everyone promptly got away from the clubrooms all heading in different directions. Once under way it was great to see cars suddenly appearing on your route and just as suddenly disappearing in another direction. No good following others on this type of run. Eventually everyone made it back to the clubrooms for an afternoon tea and cakes etc. Thank you, ladies. The winners were David and Glenis Robinson in their 39 Ford closely followed by many others. Everyone enjoyed the run with many participants saying they would be keen to do a Scatter Run again. Well done Peter for organising something very different.

1st Club Night, 7:30pm 26th Daffodil Rally 5th Club Night 10th Springvale park kite flying

3rd Club Night October River City Park Up on Sunday 8th April 2018.

A great turn out from our club and the town in general. Whanganui certainly puts on some great shows. Wanganui VCC did more than their fair share and were awarded the best club display cup

VCC Executive meeting –Christchurch 24 March, 2018 This meeting was a very early start for Ed and I . 4.30am –pick up Bruce and drive to Palmerston to catch the plane at 6.25am. Return flight was at 6.30pm so we arrived home at 9.30pm a very long day. The meeting was originally booked at Wellington Airport conference centre, but had to be transferred . There was a full agenda, with a lot of reports , to discuss , here are the highlights. 1. Constitutions -National Office have been investigating Branch constitutions. There will be a model draft

released shortly. Many Branches have not updated their constitutions over the years. Our last review was in 2006 so hopefully we are up to date with requirements. 2. Publicity - There had been a move to get VCC to sponsor or promote a TX program on “Older vehicles” but

it had been found that it would be far to expensive to the Club to be involved and we did not have the expertise. It was recommended that Branches use Facebook and Youtube to place videos and photos of cars and events. 3. Membership – Several issues were discussed – firstly because over 65% of members are over 65 years we

are seen to be a dying group. We need younger members to keep coming into the club – several ideas were outlined , and Wanganui Branch received high praise through our getting lots of publicity in the local papers and our Facebook page. Our membership is steadily growing - now up to 211 members , those of us “older” members need to welcome and talk to new chums and make them feel part of the organisation. 4. On-Line membership This has been considered but there are huge problems due to the large differences in

joining fees. Ranging from $165 down to $80 for a Joint membership. It was suggested that if a common amount say $100 could be agreed then it could be done. Branches were concerned over the right not to accept a new member, which is why we have a Proposer and seconder for any new membership and then it has to be ratified by Branch Committee before being sent to VCC for processing. We are a club with 8483 members spread over 35 Branches plus Overseas members. Canterbury is the largest Branch with 1260 members, King Country is the smallest Branch with 30 members. 5. 50 – 60 – 70 year memberships - The premium event is the presentation of the 50 year membership badge,

citation, and special presentation. 60 year members get a certificate , it was suggested that perhaps the Club should present a “Bar” to attach to the 50 year badge. Bruce suggested that on receiving a 35 year badge or 50 year badge that the 25 year and./or 35 year badges could be handed back. I have not seen anyone with a 35 and 50 year badge on their jacket or coat. ??. And we have Andrew Anderson who has a 70 year membership certificate which is a remarkable achievement. 6. Unfinancial members. . Your committee (and all other Branches ) receive reports from VCC Office giving

names of those who for some reason have not renewed their sub., It was suggested that Committees should contact these people and talk about any issues. The amount of time given – firstly the Sub notice and Secondly notice of overdue subs , plus the lack to club magazine and Beaded Wheels was considered enough notice and time for members to pay their sub. Anyone with Vero insurance who ceases to be a member may find that the policy changes or lapsed. 7. Health & Safety - There will be an update with guidelines for Branch events to be released shortly. All our

events –Sunday runs, Club nights, Rally’s etc need to be thought through and templates used to protect those who are involved with organising the event. 8. Easter Rallies. This year North Island VCC Easter has 66 entries and South Island VCC Easter Rally 126.

Discussion centred around making the event alternating between North and South Islands , nothing resolved. It was noted that for North Island VCC Easter Rally based at Cambridge There was ONE entrant registered,. from each of Hawkes Bay, Wellington , Manawatu and Wanganui. Which is a poor result from approx. 1000 members total. From these branches. It was asked WHY ????? so few were attending from these Branches.

9 Branch Email System. Concerns were expressed that Branch Secretaries were not looking regularly enough to print out and advise Committees and others of relevant material. Julie from VCC Office is constantly sending out email advice to branches and then being asked later on what is happening??. 10 Registrar’s report. Rod Brayshaw is recovering from an operation , so was unable to attend. His report was spoken to by Tony Haycock. Should anyone experience WOF problems and they have a VIC then please contact Technical Committee ( or in our case Bruce Ardell). One member reported problems with his Wolseley over fog lights, even though they are covered in a lighting endorsement. 11 12 Months WOF’S continued to be promoted by VCC and other related organisations. Without results to date. 12

National Vintage Rally. This is being considered - to cover veteran and vintage vehicles.

13 that yet

FIVA. There is some confusion over the term “Historic” cars. It was suggested that members cars have a VIC should be treated preferentially , to other older Bombs. Government in NZ have not done what has happened overseas where there are severe restrictions in place for older vehicles and where and when they can be driven on roads. The importance of VIC cards was given on a number matters over the day as they are Government recognised and is a major bargaining tool over discussions on Road use. Currently there have been 11057 cards issued.

of 14

2021 International Rally – New Plymouth. Tony Haycock spoke on organisation to date and the differences - The event will only be for 5 days and all vehicles will travel to the same destinations, as do the “Americana Event in Taranaki”. Last year some 800 vehicles all went to the same place on the Day runs, without traffic problems etc. 15 the the

Cancer Run. Canterbury, Marlborough and Wanganui each gave presentations on the way they ran event – each was different and very successful. It is hoped that more Branches will participate in August 2018, (26th August) Cancer Run, possibly using some of the ideas presented.

16 VCC Internet . Are you aware that all Branch newsletters , including our Rivet, are available to be read on the VCC website. Stats show that on average Branch mags are read at least 300-400 times , which for us with 211 members means that another 300+ people are reading our Rivet. 17 Nelson – National Veteran Rally. 16 – 18 November. They have sent out advice to over 350 members with Veteran cars. Anyone from Wanganui considering attending.?? There will be a post rally tour to Golden Bay. In 2019 The National Veteran Rally will be held in Ashburton.

off your WoF ROAD READY

I received the following email reference this Austin 7 special. Does anyone have any info on this car? I brought a Austin 7 special from a guy in Wanganui East in 1960 and towed it back to Bond street Marton. I cannot recall if it had number plates on it or not. The original owner told me he used to go up the Wanganui river in it.. I owned this sports car for 2 years then one day I deceided to abandon it and took it to a farm in Pukepapa Road Marton and placed it under a large tree somewhere down by Whales Line on the left side of the road from Marton heading to Lake Alice., It had Austin 7 wire wheels on the front and Ford 8 or 10 wheels on the back.. Who knows it may be still there. Would any of your members happen to know if it has been rescued.

A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She would occasionally walk around to see each child's work. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked what the drawing was. The girl replied, 'I'm drawing God.' The teacher paused and said, 'But no one knows what God looks like.' Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing, the girl replied, 'They will in a minute.'

Mitsubishi / Todd Motors Heritage Day.

Did you hear about this day. I did through the Humber Hillman Car Club – and went to it with Angus as navigator. The event was to celebrate 100 years of Todd Motors and Mitsubishi dealerships in NZ. About 105 vehicles attended. Over the years Todd’s assembled Maxwell, Chrysler, Fargo trucks, Plymouth, DeSoto as well as the Rootes Group – Hillman, Humber, Sunbeam, and Commer and Karrier trucks. So there was a huge range possible. The earliest vehicles attending were mid 1920’s through to late Mitsubishi. The cars made a grand spectacle on the front lawns of the former Todd Assembly plant in Porirua – sold to Mitsubishi in 1987. We were treated with presentations on the history of Todd Motors by Mark Todd, and presentations on Mitsubishi motors. Then there was a charity auction of clothing, mechanical parts oil etc with the proceeds going to Wellington Free Ambulance. There wer some big ticket items and bidding was spirited. Eg 4 tyres value $800 ticket sold for $300 I think. Our VCC Life member Roger White was one of the main organisers. Roger had spent many years working for Todd and Mitsubishi. Everyone received a goodies bag with cap and other memorabilia. We had time to wander around in the sun and look at the vehicles gathered. Then it was off to Southwards for a fre entry and lunch, with special workshop tours. A delightful time and I was one of the last t leave at 4.30pm. A brief summary of Todd Motors – Charles Todd came from Scotland and settled firstly in Dunedin (1884) then Heriot. He se up a fellmongery and woolscour business, later he and his brother started a stock and station agency which was the start of the Todd enterprises..The association with Motor vehicles started in 1908 with a series of garages in the Otago region. The Company rapidly expanded, relocated to Christchurch and then to Wellington. I remember the assembly plant in Petone , either side of the main road. The first building in Wellington was designed and then erected in 10 weeks but expanded as demand increased. Firstly Maxwell cars, which were later bought out by Chrysler , hence the Chrysler link up. Assembly moved into Fargo Trucks, Chrysler Plymouth Dodge Desoto and Rootes group vehicles. In 1935 Todd’s established EUROPA petrol and oil , importing from Russia. There was a NZ wide network for Europa. I had a brother-in-law who was an accountant in Todds , firstly in Wellington and then in New Plymouth. There were a few interesting stories about the early times. At one stage they were assembling and selling “GREY” cars from USA and the problems were so bad that Todds wanted a spare gearbox with every new car. The film clips of earlier years brought back memories. All in all a great day out. I drove down in the Humber Hawk (1954) and it was the only Hawk there. One Super Snipe in attendance from Wellington ( same year of manufacture) lots of Hillman Minx’s, Hunters etc and about 6 Sunbeams including 2 IMPS. Naturally lot of Chargers, Avengers, and Mitsubishi cars. Great attendance from Vintage Car members from Wellington, Horowhenua, Manawatu. B others had come from Auckland and the bottom of the South Island to attend. Neil Farrer

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human; it was physically impossible. The little girl said, 'When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah'. The teacher asked, 'What if Jonah went to hell?' The little girl replied, 'Then you ask him'.

The children had all been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture. 'Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say, 'There's Jennifer, she's a lawyer,' or 'That's Michael, He's a doctor.' A small voice at the back of the room rang out, 'And there's the teacher, she's dead.'

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: 'Take only ONE . God is watching.' Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, 'Take all you want. God is watching the apples...'

From the desk of Jim O’Neill, Wanganui Branch Club Captain Big thing this month is the Working Bee on Saturday the 19th. We have great facilities but they do need some tender loving care and assistance regularly. Please bring your ladders, loppers and anything else you may think useful and join us from 9am. Also we have the Annual Rally coming up in the very near future, 3rd of June to be precise, and we want as many of you out there competing as possible. This is one of our two big rallies and is usually well supported by out of towners so lets get lots of local support to show them how its done. Its a full weekend of activities with the details included in the entry form included in this Rivet.
