changing tastes

Ever since I was a teenager, my passion for cars has centred around those from across the ditch and from further afield — the US of A. My taste for American cars was further influenced when I started my apprenticeship in 1973, where I found myself surrounded by workmates who thought that Tri-5 Chevys were the holy grail. It wasn’t long before my trusty old Morrie was turned in for a 1969 Holden Monaro GTS that my colleagues begrudgingly approved of, because at least it was a GM-manufactured car. However, my preference was for one of two XY Falcon GTHO Phase 3s sitting in a car dealership in Papatoetoe, neither of which I could afford at the time. As time went on I eventually traded the Monaro for a yellow XA…

a tale of two types of jaguars

Half a century and a bewildering array of modern equipment separate these two highly distinctive British sports cars, and we might wonder which one qualifies as a design milestone. As classic car lovers, we might tend to favour old over new, without always being rational. It is more difficult now to make a significant motoring impact, given the huge number of available models and array of advancements, yet there is no doubt that the Jaguar E-Type was a huge hit in its day, and the F-Type is endeavouring to emulate its predecessor. However, is the F-Type another ‘mission impossible’ for Jaguar? Is it truly a modern-day successor to the mighty E-Type that was much more than an early ’60s motoring icon? The marque has driven down this road before, with limited…

one of the family

Gary was searching for something rare, and he found an exceptional vehicle, quite different to anything he had previously owned — a Chevrolet pickup Gary McNeill has always sought something a bit different from the mainstream and carefully selected vehicles that stand out from the mundane. No other members of his family helped influence his initial interest in cars, he says; it was just a passion that he had for rare and exciting vehicles, which later led to the recognition of the investment potential of tracking down the right cars. “I remember there was this ’70–’80s black JPS Ford Capri with a bulge in the bonnet and a big V6 engine across the road from where I was growing up. I was probably just 12 or 13 years old. It was…

new zealand during the ’60s

Back in 1962, we could leave our grocery shopping list with the local IGA grocer, and he would duly deliver the groceries. With husbands travelling to work in the family car, women were isolated and had to walk to the local shops. Posties would blow their whistle the moment that the mail was placed in our box. Milk was delivered to our doorstep daily and so was our bread, which was placed in our special bread bin on our small back porch. Once a week, fish sales (and whitebait when in season) and the ice-cream cart would travel down our street — Mr Whippy’s cream-freeze van still parades our street in 2018! After 6pm, we would watch television on our new big-console AWA 26-inch television — black and white, of…

a passage to india

Well, there was plenty of emotion shown over machines at the 2018 21 Gun Salute International Vintage Car Rally and Concours Show held in New Delhi This magnificent event was a romantic mix, from A Drive of the Lutyens — named for the architect Edwin Landseer Lutyens (1869–1944), who laid out so much of the administrative heart of the new city — to black-tie dinners at the homes of Maharajahs; traditional and unique dance entertainment from the regions of India; the National Railway Museum; motorbikes and scooters; culinary delights — such as Hyderabadi dum biryani, macher jhol, rogan josh, sorpotel, and meen vevicathu (do not question, just eat!) — and, last but certainly not least, well over 100 veteran, Edwardian, vintage, and classic cars, including international entrants from the US, Australia,…

Letters Pleasant memories First off a big thumbs up for the article on the Kiwi Home Front Can-Am in the latest edition of Classic Car magazine. I haven’t seen part one, but part two brought back many pleasant memories of a season spent travelling New Zealand’s racing tracks of the time. After doing well at Ruapuna, Timaru, and Teretonga, the decision was made to do the three North Island circuits and see if we could give them a bit of a shake-up up there. By the way, I’m Dave Waldron, and [I] ran the Supercharged U2 in the sports car championship that year. I got a couple of nice photos in your magazine, which is always a buzz. In fact the photo in colour taken at Timaru being chased by Jamie Aslabie…
