15 May 2022 - Picnic Run to Otorohanga

A rainy Sunday still saw 20 cars and their contingents of club members show up. We took a really novell route, past Mystery Creek and then carving through some very scenic countryside, dotted with trees in late autumn colours. The rain had us gather under the cover of the Otorohanga train station for our lunch. Afterwards, we could explore the town a bit and the Museum was open, which has many artifacts - many with a tale attached. Thank you to Graham and Colleen on putting together a memorable run.

01 May 2022 - Classics Breakfast and Boot Sale

The morning started a little chilly and even tried to rain from an almost cloudless sky at one point but the sun won through for a beautiful morning. Did somebody say May 1st!
What a great turnout we had, with over 80 classic cars turning up over the morning including a number that we’ve not previously seen.
Car of the day Jukebox Diner voucher went to the green “Dick Bullis” Chevrolet Camaro owned by Andrew Moore and the Classics Museum runner-up to the 1930 Ford Model A Roadster.

03 Apr 2022 - Classics Breakfast and Boot Sale

Hamilton's Classics Museum & Jukebox Diner's April Classics Car Meet turned out to be a boomer. The morning dawned with early fog which cleared later in the morning. The extra hour of sleep due to the change in Daylight Saving overnight must have been the catalyst that gave all the late risers time to get their act together - i.e. get out of bed, get in their classics and come on down to the Car Meet.
The turn out was exceptional, around 100 cars I believe. There was everything from Model As to late model classics including an Alfa Brera. The Jukebox Diner car of the day went to a 1928 Model A XW3638. The Classics Museum's cash prizes were awarded as follows: 2nd place went to a Black Thunderbird COOL62 and 3rd place went to a 1958 MGA 1GHOST. The furthest traveled prize went to a lady from Manurewa traveling in an Oldsmobile.
The Classics boot sale was also in progress during the morning with some bartering taking place and goodies changing hands. The Jukebox Diner was busy all morning with their buffet breakfast and coffees.
Tom Andrews, the Classics Museum owner, very generously opened the museum doors for free entry all morning. A very nice gesture for every one who attended. A big thanks to Tom.
A very enjoyable classic morning out

A fine Sunday morning was on hand for Hamilton's Classics Car Meet at Classics Museum / Jukebox Diner car park.

Another very enjoyable Classics Car Meet.

06 Feb 2021 - Classics Breakfast and Boot Sale

Hamilton's Classics Museum and JukeBox Diner's February car meet went ahead as scheduled under the current Covid-19 Red Traffic Light Protocols. There was a good turn out of cars early on considering the weather was threatening, but when the rain did come it put a damper on further participants venturing out. However there was a group of Mustangs on show some of which had come from Auckland and the local Mini Club were in attendance and starting a run later in the morning.
It was a good general turn out of cars considering the weather with some interesting cars not seen at this meet before. The weather put a damper on the classics boot sale with only a handful of vendors trying their luck but the JukeBox Diner was doing its usual trade with its Buffet Breakfast and Hot Coffees.
The JukeBox Diner car of the day was awarded to a very nicely restored Model T JTE934. Classics Museum cash prizes were awarded as follows: 2nd place car was a very nice and quite rare 1979 Ford Mercury Zephyr POSSM and 3rd went to a 1963 Hillman Super Minx AP8529 in a tidy unrestored condition. Prize for furthest travelled went to a Gentleman from Auckland.

02 Jan 2022 - Classics Breakfast and Boot Sale

The first Classics Car Meet of 2022 at Classics Museum/Jukebox Diner got the year off to a great start with a brilliantly fine morning and a good turnout of cars.
Considering it was the middle of the New Year long weekend, the number of cars and supporters that turned out was impressive. Obviously not everyone had headed out of town for the long weekend.
Numbers were also boosted with the arrival mid-morning of a group of Triumphs belonging to the Triumph Register. The Classics boot sale was also in progress and the Jukebox Diner was doing a brisk trade serving their breakfast and coffee.
The Jukebox Diner car of the day was awarded to a very nice 1969 Triumph TR4 MERV T. The Classics Museum cash prizes went as follows - runner-up car of the day a 1939 Hudson MRLOCO, and 3rd was a Bugatti style replica BWK526, with 4th going to a 1963 Austin Cambridge AM6462. Furthest travelled went to travellers from Helensville.
A great start to the 2022 Classics Car Meets.
