So after the Covid lockdown, we could finally have a run again. 33 cars showed up on a dreary morning at the Car Museum. It was a simple, direct run to Raglan, where Allan had heaps of food all pre-ordered. One wrinkle was heading along Old Mountain Road, so if your car was clean, it now needed another wash. We must have made the food kiosk's month with the big order. Kites were made available and were flow. A pleasant day after our enforced hiatus.
A lovely clear, crisp morning greeted patrons at the March Classic Car
Meet and Boot Sale held at the Classics Museum and Juke Box Diner. The sun's
warmth soon took over from the early morning chill and by 9:00am the carpark
was bulging with a fine assortment of classics old and new, with a few
vintage and hot rods in the mix as well.
The boot sale vendors had a brisk mornings trading. Judging by the amount of people standing around talking and laughing among the cars and boot sale vendors, a few stories and possibly a few lies were told. It was a very interesting and entertaining morning with the Juke Box Diner breakfast also getting a good response. The Juke Box Diner car of the day award went to Kitt Maxwell with his lovely 1929 Buick. The Classics Museum cash prizes were awarded as follows - the runner up car of the day to a 1998 Celica rally car and the two furthest traveled awards went to folk from Te Awamutu and Cambridge.

Twelve HVCCC cars and their occupants turned out for the Morrinsville Motorama, with every one enjoying a relaxing time under the club Ezi-Ups or strolling around looking at the cars on display. In all there were probably around 700 or 800 cars. A very enjoyable day.
A beautiful, fine morning greeted patrons for the February Classic Car Meet
at Classics Museum / Juke Box Diner in Frankton. A very interesting assortment
of cars rolled in during the morning, from a vintage Model A and Hot Rods
through to modern American muscle and everything in between, including some
very nice Minis, two of which were for sale.
The crowd stayed well into the morning with many stories told around the cars or under bonnets. A great morning of Classics and Coffee. Speaking of coffee, the Juke Box Diner's Breakfast was well patronized as was their coffee.
The Juke Box Diner car of the day award went to a very nice 1972 Dodge Dart. Cash prizes courtesy of the Classics Museum were as follows: second place car of the day went to a very nice 1974 AMC Matador, and third place was a very nice EH Holden. The furthest travelled prize was awarded to a couple from Tauranga in a very well restored 1965 Mustang.
The Classic Boot Sale vendors were a bit short on numbers, but the 2 sellers who did front up did very well with sales. So come on all you would be classic boot sale sellers, get yourselves organized for next month's Classic Car Meet on Sunday 1st March.

A clear sunny day made for a smooth journey out to C&R in Cambridge. Their museum has expanded a lot since our last visit. And excellent turnout for the run and food was enjoyed in the picnic part.
The first Classic Car Meet of 2020 got off to a slow start as did the
weather, but as the sun slowly came out the cars started rolling in. By
9.00am there was a very interesting line-up of classic cars on display
with many different makes and models represented.
The usual prizes were awarded during the morning with the Juke Box Diner car of the day prize going to a very nice 1972 Toyota Corolla. The Classics Museum cash prizes went to a very nice 1969 Sunbeam Hillman Imp and the furthest travelled prize was awarded to a gentleman from Canada who is doing a 5 month tour of NZ in his Chevy wagon.
The Classic Boot Sale vendors had a few sales taking place and the Juke Box Diner`s Breakfast was well received as usual. A very good start to 2020's Classic Car Meet and Boot Sale.
