                            Chairman’s Report (June 2011)

Greetings one and all.

May has raced past and our AGM is virtually upon us - so much to do and so little time. We
even missed the breakfast run (got my weekends mixed up). I understand the run went very
well and all enjoyed the breakfast at the Walnut Café at Orewa.
Coming up is our Branch AGM on the 15th – Let’s see you all there.
Then we have the Auckland/North Shore Combined run on the 26th, plotted this year by
Auckland branch, and it starts at the Northcote Tavern. (See mag for details). Please we need
a good turn out to represent our branch.
Wellsford/Warkworth Winter Woollies Wander, and Rotorua swap meet are but two of a
number of events for July.
Then there is the triple combined rally in August too.
Plotting is well underway for the Spring Tour on the 24th September, with much to see and
visit along the way.
Shed progress creeps along slowly but surely, and we hope to see some activity very soon.
Entry forms for the 2012 Rally at Wanganui need to be sent in soon (the entries close end of
August) so don’t leave things till the last minute – get them away sooner rather than later.
Meanwhile keep warm and well.See you at the AGM on the 15th.

      Regards,           Paul Collins.



1955 OLDSMOBILE 2 DOOR.
Record Turnout for Breakfast Run                                       P4


This years Breakfast Run proved to be a popular choice again with
twenty cars and 42 people turning out at the respectable hour of
9:30am and setting off on an easy run for a rather belated breakfast
(or should we call it Brunch).
The destination was Walnut Cottage at Orewa in a delightful setting at
the Northern end of the beach where we were all made most welcome
by our hosts Klaus & Kirsten.
The fine Menu was much appreciated by all but it was noticed that
some cheated by ordering only a muffin as they had not been able to
wait for Breakfast ( farmer types I think) or maybe they couldn’t
afford petrol and Breakfast.
After the meal some took the opportunity to view the historic Orewa
House which is also on the site while others scoured the carpark for
interesting vehicles to peruse and chat about.
A very nice ’37 Buick Coupe belonging to Cliff from the Hibiscus
Coast Group was one which most of us had not seen before but was
apparently restored about 15 years ago.
Unfortunately our socializing was cut short by a few spits of rain that
had us running to erect our hoods which soon turned into a downpour
and sent us scurrying off home.
Thank you to all who came on the run. It is very satisfying to have
such a great turnout and shows that this type of social event seems to
be becoming a popular choice.
Did you spot the Clue?

                 New oil recycling service launched in Auckland

                  New Zealand Vintage Car Club.

               As you may have heard, a new ‘free’ service has been launched in the
               Auckland region to offer home mechanics a safe and convenient place to
               dispose of used engine oil. Aucklanders can now take their used engine oil
               in a sealed, leak proof container to any of the 21 drop off locations around
Auckland – at any Repco store or to Total Oil in East Tamaki. We will be adding new
locations as businesses volunteer to become a drop off point.

The used oil service is a pilot project initiated by Auckland Council in partnership with the
Ministry for the Environment and industry supporters. If successful, we hope to roll it out
throughout New Zealand. We would like your club’s support for this and we would like your
members to use the service!In order to ensure your members are aware of this service, we
have free funnels printed with information about the scheme that we can send to you for
your members. Please email if you would like us to send some out to you. We would also
be interested in any promotion through newsletters of other means if you are able to
assist. If you have any queries, or would like a representative to visit your club to talk about
the used oil recovery project, please contact me directly or visit our website
www.oilrecycling.org.nz.

Bentley 8 Litre 1931 better than Rolls-Royce Phantom II, saloon coachwork by van den Plas

The new 8-litre was such a success that when Barnato's money ran out in 1931 and Napier was planning
to buy Bentley's business, Rolls-Royce snatched Bentley Motors at the last moment in order to kill its
rivals.

                                                                    times what a contemporary Cadillac
cost. Imitators would inevitably try to repeat the pattern. Ah, but which dead marque deserved the voodoo
treatment? Mike Sherman and Dave Kent figured on Bugatti.

Virgil Exner, who at least held partial responsibility for the neo-classical movement, thanks to his revival
designs for Esquire magazine, had already envisioned a resurrected Bugatti and even built a real-life
version, based on the last Bugatti Type 101 chassis. By the time he debuted that car in 1965, the
Molsheim factory had long given up automobile production and fallen into the hands of Hispano-Suiza.
Hispano-Bugatti, involved in the manufacture of aircraft parts, became part of SNECMA in 1968. Exner
couldn’t attract funding to build more Bugattis, so the marque seemed ripe for the picking.

How or even whether Sherman and Kent obtained the rights to the Bugatti name remains unknown.
Sherman’s son, Scott Sherman, claims that they did indeed purchase the rights to the name sometime in
the early to mid-1970s, fully intending to bring the Bugatti marque back to life. Unlike Exner’s sporty
two-seater, however, Sherman and Kent decided to go the ultra-luxury route and purchased at least two
460-powered 1973 Lincoln Continentals to serve as the bases for two new Bugattis.

Kent, through his Creative Car Craft in Hawthorne, California, had plenty of experience building,
restyling, and customizing cars, with experience gained through working with Troutman and Barnes.
According to Scott Sherman, his father was no slouch with a hammer and dolly either, so the two set
about reskinning the two Continentals in aluminum body panels, anchored at the front by the trademark
Bugatti horse-collar grille and defined along the sides by long, swoopy curves, accentuated by a two-tone
black-and-silver paint scheme.

They finished at least one of the Bugattis, and presumably it was Sherman and Kent who then displayed it
outside the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 1976 with an asking price of $64,000 – again, more
than four times the cost of the most expensive contemporary Cadillac, and more than six times the cost of
a contemporary Lincoln Continental four-door. Since then, it seems to have fallen out of sight and out of
mind: Bugatti resources seem to make absolutely no reference to it at all (aside from three photos on Jaap
Horst’s Bugattipage.com – 1, 2, 3), and for all their research, Scott Sherman and his brother have turned
up nothing else on the car. “Dad died 16-17 years ago, so we never got to know what happened to the
car,” he said.

The Bugatti name, of course, has since passed on to Romano Artioli – who bought it in 1991 and was
successful in producing the Bugatti EB110 – and to Volkswagen – responsible for the current Veyron.
The known finished Sherman/Kent Bugatti presumably still exists, but where? Did the Sherman/Kent duo
ever finish the second one? And how does this all fit historically into the conventional narrative of the
resurrection of the Bugatti marque?

built by Overland Amusements of Lexington, Massachusetts (which also converted Crosleys into
amusement park fire trucks), and that it served the Storyland amusement park in Bushkill, Pennsylvania.
Gotta wonder if Overland converted any other diminutive cars into fire trucks.

   Changes to vehicle licensing regulations announced by the Minister of
CAR CLUB OF NAND IN C.   VI
Transport, HonSteven Joyce on April 5th 2011.

Retaining Silver on Black Number Plates.
For members looking to put a vehicle back on the road with a “dead”
registration and old silver on black plates, life has just got easier.
New regulations which came into force on 1 May 2011 will allow vehicles
to be reregistered using the old silver on black plates that were originally
on the vehicle.
There are a few conditions –
1. The number on the plates must be still available (sometimes people use
a number from a silver on black plate and put it on a personalised plate –
in such cases the old plates cannot be re-used as the number has been
“taken”)
2. The plates must be in good condition ( this is a general rule applying to
all plates)
3. You must be able to convince the Registrar of Motor Vehicles (currently
the NZ Transport Agency) that the plates originally belonged to that
vehicle. The best evidence is the certificate of registration or other
paperwork (insurance policy, repair receipts showing the registration
number, etc). As an alternative, a photograph of the vehicle when it was
previously on the road showing its number plates would be helpful.
Another additional option is to provide evidence that the plates have been
attached to the vehicle for a long time – a close up photo of rusty bolts
holding on the plate might help. So if you were about to take the plates off
to clean them and replace the bolts – STOP and take a photo first.
If the plates are badly damaged and cannot be repaired but you can
satisfy the other two conditions you still might be able to keep the number.
The old number would have to go on the post 1987 series plates (black on
white) as the old silver on black plates can no longer be made. Some
members might not see this as ideal but an old number such as “BX4846”
still looks better on an old car than a very recent one that you might see
on the latest Hyundai.
                                                                    P16
Pre 1964 black on yellow numerical plates and previous series cannot be
re-used as those plates are no longer legal.
Any member wanting to have their black and silver plates reinstated
should contact the Transport Registry Centre--- Private Bag 11777,
Palmerston North 4442. Attention: Team Leader Business Administration.
Once approval is granted in writing a unique serial number will be
allocated to allow the use of the original Silver on Black plates. These
plates will be officially assigned to your motor vehicle at a vehicle
compliance centre.
Other changes
There is no change to the Exemption from licensing system where
members can place a motor vehicle licence on hold when it is not being
used on the road.
Changes to vehicle licensing regulations have been made to penalties for
those caught by the Police while driving unlicensed vehicles by reducing
fines and introducing demerit points.
If a person is caught driving an unlicensed Motor vehicle or Motor Cycle
and they do not pay the current Licensing fees after receiving a police
ticket, they may be required to surrender their licence plates when putting
their vehicles licensing on hold in the future, or they may have their
application to put licensing on hold declined.
This only applies when a person has abused this right in the past.
The new penalties apply only to those tickets served personally by a
Police officer. Police will continue to give a person ticketed for the first
time with an unlicensed vehicle a two week grace period to license their
vehicle before any penalties apply.
Adhesive labels:
A number plate to be fixed to the front of a motor vehicle may be in the
form of an adhesive label.
The adhesive label must be an official item supplied only by an appointed
manufacturer.
These adhesive labels may not be available to purchase until later this
year when manufacturing processes are finalised and equipment become
available.
Notification will be made to members when an official date is provided by
the Transport Registry Centre.
Only after this future date can members apply for front adhesive labels.

National Registrar
Rod Brayshaw.

WHO-- WELLSFORD – WARKWORTH BRANCH V.C.C.N.Z.

WHAT: We are proposing holding a “Campout” for Vintage and Veteran Vehicles
Cars, Motor Cycles and Commercial. This would be a non-competitive event.

WHERE :
West of Warkworth, beside the Hoteo Tidal River, North of Mt Auckland
and surrounded by steep rolling farms. The views from all around can only
be described as breathtaking.

WHEN Feb/March 2012 when the weather should be settled and dry.

WE ARE Looking for expressions of interest and ask clubs to please survey your
members and report to “Campout” Secretary at the earliest opportunity as
we have lots of planning to do and need to get the event into the calendar.
BASIC DETAILS We have a unique opportunity to use two very large farms to run
our vehicles over old farm tracks and paddocks, just as they were designed to
do. The campsite is located approximately 3-4 kms across a rather challenging
narrow winding farm track with wonderful views of the steep country either side
and of the Hoteo River way down in the valley. There are no steep hills for us on
the way in and rear wheel brakes will not have a problem if driven carefully.
CAMPSITE This is located on flat land beside the river, protected from winds by
the Mt Auckland hills, the steep bush clad hills over the river and the rolling hills of
the neighbouring farm hills. The river is about four metres deep, tidal, ideal
for swimming and is reputed to have fish in it (mullet and whitebait).
FACILITIES No water, no power, cell phone coverage from top of the hill, but
there is a very old dilapidated batch that does offer us a large covered porch
where we could gather for “milk and cookies”, etc. There is an old long drop toilet
but we do hope to have a portaloo or two. We hope to borrow/rent from the
Humber Hillman Car Club, a sink bench, bbq, a table and a few chairs. All
campers will need to be fully self equipped and will have your own water and
food, etc. It is our intention to bring a quad bike and a 4x4.
PARKING There is parking available before you enter the farm for trailers as it
wouldbe difficult to tow them in/out.

1931 Auburn 8-98A Cabriolet, Frank and Morris Eckhart of Auburn,
Indiana started the Auburn Motor Company in 1903. As their business
grew, they acquired more dealerships to stay ahead of the competition,
but by the mid-twenties size had caught up with them and they were in
need of new leadership. In 1925 E.L. Cord became general manager and
set out to save the company. Under Cord the new Auburn became a very
different company, emphasizing style and performance. Body styles were
changed every few years to keep sales up.
This highly restored 1931 Auburn 898-A Cabriolet exhibits the talents of
designers Gordon Buehrig and Alan Leamy who inspired some of the
most stunning examples offered by Auburn. This car is equipped with its
original 268.8cid Lycoming 8-cylinder engine producing 98 h.p., and
three-speed synchromesh manual transmission. Recognized as a full
classic by the Classic Car Club of America this rare automobile
represents an outstanding example 1930's American automotive history!

VIRUS STORY.
A man went to the doctors feeling a little ill
The doctor checks him over and says, 'Sorry, I have some bad news,
you have Yellow 24, a really nasty virus. It's called Yellow 24 because it
turns your blood yellow and you usually only have about 24 hours to
live. There's no known cure so just go home and enjoy your final
  precious moments on earth.'
So he trudges home to his wife and breaks the news.
  Distraught, she asks him to go to the bingo with her that evening as
he's never been there with her before.
  They arrive at the bingo and with his first card he gets four corners and
wins £35.
  Then, with the same card, he gets a line and wins £320.
Then he gets the full house and wins £1000.
  Then the National Game comes up and he wins that too getting
  £380,000. The bingo caller gets him up on stage and says,
  'Son, I've been here 20 years and I've never seen anyone win four
corners, a line, the full-house and the national game on the same card.
  You must be the luckiest man on Earth!' . . . . .
  'Lucky?' he screamed. 'Lucky? I'll have you know I've got Yellow 24 .'
  'Stuff me,' says the bingo caller. "You've won the meat raffle as well !!
