Events '07


Wheels with Attitude in Dannevirke 2nd February;
Leo Bolter came through from Palmerston North in the Jupiter.
Malcolm and Judy from Lower Hutt started out in their Javelin
until at the beginning of the Rimutaka Hill Road it decided to suddenly have a fit of some sort,
 so it had to be nursed home and swapped for any everyday car.
The Jupiter attracted a lot of interest and
was supported by our display engine and information board.

British Car Day at Trentham, 18th February:
 Dick Graham in his Javelin and the Cameron’s with the Dragonfly attended this popular day.
Also Ken and Ngaio drove out from Karori in their Bradford.
The Jowetts as always attracted a lot of interest

National Rally at Nelson, 13th – 16th Nelson:
Dick Graham (Wellington), Judy and Malcolm Cameron (Hutt),
Barry and carol Moore (Otaki), Kelvin Gardner (Taihape)
 made the ferry crossing to the South Island from the Central region
 taking two Javelins and the Dragon Fly Special.
As usual this event was great few days and thoroughly enjoyed,
 with all the cars running well on the journey.

The Dragonfly stops and joins the others
to remove a stone caught behind the clutch lever of a Jowett 10
while on the Sunday Run

Motor Trade Association Parade
On Saturday 13th Oct 2007,  Central Branch Jowetteers
 had a great day helping the Motor trade Ass of NZ celebrate
 their 90th anniversary of the founding of their association in the town.
The assembly point for the "chosen ones" was at the
Motor Racing Circuit and Show Centre, Manfield Park,
 utilising one of the service roads to gather together.
There was a closing off of several of the central shopping area streets through
which the parade slowly made its way to the town square.

 A large portion of the square was made available to park the cars
so as to enable the public to wander about reminiscing about the
"old days" when most of New Zealand's cars came from
the United Kingdom and a few from the USA and Aussie!

Interestingly, although the parade was open to ALL cars,
but I don't recollect seeing any from Asia at all . . . .
There were though, many "Pommie" voices in the crowd in the square,
 getting their dose of nostalgia!
As we know, nowadays almost every modern vehicle is from some part of Asia

South Island Rally 16-18 November

Malcolm and Judy from Central Branch made the Ferry Crossing

to attend the South Island Rally

and took out the trophy for furthest travelled in a Javelin.

Here you see Malcolm competing in the gymkhana
