A lovely sunny Sunday morning set the scene for a great display of classic cars at Classics Museum and JukeBox Diner car park. As the morning progressed and the cars rolled, in the range of cars varied from modern classics to early 1900 vintage. The classic automotive-only boot sales had a good following as did the Juke Box Diner's buffet breakfast and coffee.
Minis Waikato had an early morning run finishing at the Classic Car Meet with around 15 to 20 Minis in attendance. The Juke Box Diner voucher for Car of the Day went to a very nice 1973 Valiant Charger. The Classics Museum cash prizes were awarded as follows: 2nd place went to a very rare 1915 Saxton B Roadster, 3rd place went to a nicely restored MGB with a modern drive train, and 4th place was a Fiat Targo.

Perfect weather and a large turnout of cars and Club Members. We rambled out of Hamilton past Mystery Creek and the back of Cambridge. There was a huge car event at Karapiro (Stragglers Car Show), but our route took us on around the mountain and down to Arapuni. There we admired the swing bridge built in 1925 and the hydro dam (1929). Then it was lunch and picnics in Putaruru and a nice drive over to the Blue Spring. Busy as ever, and the organisers stayed at the roadside parking to keep an eye out. With no problems, we rambled on to the Tirau Museum, last visited on the Club Run of 19 Nov 2016. A full day and a well organised run with a few fun questions along the way.
Being such a significant milestone, the Club's 25th Birthday Celebrations are on their own separate page.
A nice fine morning at the Classics Museum and Jukebox Diner saw a wide
range of cars turn out for the monthly Classic Car Meet and Boot Sale. The
classics boot sale seller numbers were a little thin, but some sellers made
a few good sales. The JukeBox Diner Buffet Breakfast was on again thanks
to the Covid-19 restrictions being back in Level One and the breakfast was
being enjoyed by all those who participated.
The JukeBox Diner award for car of the day went to very nice 1968 Mk 1 Escort twin cam replica. The Classics Museum cash prizes went to the 2nd place car of the day, a 1960 Chevy El Camino ute and 3rd place to a very original 1981 XD Falcon.
During the morning a group of MGBs joined the lineup and the Waikato Vintage Club started a Rally from the venue. A very enjoyable morning for all who attended.

Despite inclement weather with showers threatening and Covid-19
restrictions in place, the September Classics Car Meet and Boot Sale at
Classics Museum and Jukebox Diner in Railside Place, Frankton was well
Although numbers were down on previous months due to the above mentioned factors, a very broad mix of cars turned out. The boot sale sellers were also down due to the conditions but some treasures changed hands over the morning. However a light shower later in the piece sent everyone packing.
The JukeBox Diner, now under new management and working under the present Covid-19 regulations, coped well with the large numbers wanting the Big Brekkie and coffee .
The JukeBox Diner Voucher for Car of the Day was awarded to a very nice original and quite rare Red Lancia Delta Integrale evo 2. The Classics Museum cash prizes were awarded as follows - runner up Car of the Day went to a lovely original red Morris Minor, furthest travelled to a gentleman from Tauranga, youngest person with a classic went to a young gentleman driving a Mazda MX5, and a nice original Rustic blue Morris Minor took out the final award of the day..

What a lovely morning, and a big turnout with over 60 people and 33 cars. The short hop up to the Ngaruawahia Golf Club had an added scenic route which made for a picturesque drive and also ensured a left turn into the Golf Club. The food was superb and everyone enjoyed the company, catching up with friends over good food. With bellies filled, folks eventually filtered off homeward.
Despite the car park surface being wet due to overnight rain and the threat of more showers, the conditions did not deter the classic car fraternity from turning out in great numbers. Over the morning appoximately 80 cars turned out with most makes and models represented, from vintage to more modern classics. The Classics Boot Sale was in progress, but the numbers were down due to the damp conditions, even though the morning stayed fine. The JukeBox Diner's Buffet Breakfast was well patronized as usual.
The JukeBox Diner award for Car of the Day went to a very original
2-owner 1995 Nissan Silvia. The Classics Museum cash prizes were awarded as
follows. Runner-up Car of the Day went to a 1972 Vauxhall Firenza. The
Furthest Traveled went to a gentleman from Auckland. And the Naughty
Car of the Day was an EIP Velox that would not restart. The Youngest
Classic Car Owner went to 19yo Pacey with his Morris Minor.

The July 5th Classic Car Meet, Boot Sale and Breakfast was the first
event for 4 months since the March lockdown. Cars started slowly drifting
into the Classics Museum car park in Frankton before 8.00am and as the
morning progressed and the sun came out there was a steady stream of
classic cars arriving.
It seems everyone was glad to be out and about in their classics and generally having a good chat and enjoying themselves after what had been a very restricted few months.
There was a great range of classic vehicles of all makes and models totaling almost 80. The JukeBox Diner was doing a brisk trade with coffee and the buffet breakfast. Boot sellers were also doing well with some reporting record sales.
The JukeBox Diner Meal voucher award for car of the day went to a very nice Maroon 1972 BMW 3.0S. Classics Museum cash prize for runner up went to a nice pair of Mazda RX7s, MR JDM and MS JDM, and the Classics Museum award for the farthest traveled was split between two couples. One from Auckland and the other from Whangarei.
A very enjoyable morning was had by all
