07 Aug 2022 - Classics Breakfast and Boot Sale

Classics Museum's August Classics Car meet got off to a slow start, mainly due to overnight rain and the threat of more to follow. The turnout was smaller than usual, but the rain held off so those who did come enjoyed a relatively rain free morning.
Minis Waikato had an early morning run finishing at the meet which boosted numbers with a good turn out of classic Minis.
The boot sale sellers were non-existent except for the Kids Can Charity stall that did brisk business all morning.
Due to the threatening weather outdoors a large number of patrons were seen enjoying the buffet breakfast and coffee in the Dinner.
The Jukebox Diner Car of the Day went to a nicely restored Mini Clubman GT FX3598. The restoration process taking some 9 years. The Runner-up Classics Museum prize went to a very nice Chevy Impala PBP743 and the furthest traveled prize was awarded to a gentleman from over Coromandel way.

03 Jul 2022 - Classic Breakfast and Boot Sale

Finding my way through the "Waikato sunshine" AKA thick fog into the car park just after 8 - and already there was a great collection of cars in attendance. Just like the fog they kept on rolling in until almost 10am. Also a good turnout by the boot sellers and we will have a stand for the next few months raising money for the Pork Pie Run charity "Kids Can" so please come along and support that at future meets.
Tom kindly threw open the doors to the museum for free entry and a welcome relief from the weather just as it started to rain. Hard to choose the winners as always but the 1925 Buick was the overall winner of the Jukebox Diner voucher with the ’71 Chevy Nova and ’77 Ford Escort 1600 Sport as runners up. A special "Work in progress" prize went to the Ford flathead hotrod and the 3 members of the Austin Flying A Club getting the prize for the further travelled from Auckland.
Winners:
• 1st - 1925 Buick ACU425
• 2nd - '71 Chevy Nova JAT379
• 3rd - '77 Ford Escort IP4463
• Furthest travelled - Austin Flying A Club
• Work in progress - Ford hotrod
