Latest News - 5 September 2013

Hi Everyone, Well JR has just returned from Hot Rod Week in Pleasanton and during his visit caught up with a lot of familiar faces (unfortunately not Toni's and mine), however.....

he also finalised the very exciting merchandise artwork which we are really looking forward to showing you in due course. It will be very popular I’m sure. Also while he was away he spent some time with Scott and Esther from the Napa Valley Region who came to their first AmeriCARna in 2012 and confirmed to him they would be returning in 2014. They are such a lovely couple and we are so pleased to be able to host them again next year.

While on the subject of returning to NZ, Jim and Chris Ballard from Victoria Australia have also confirmed their return after really enjoying themselves in 2012.  We are looking forward to seeing them again during their time here.

Inglewood, as most of you regulars will know, put a lot of effort and time into ensuring you enjoy their hospitality by closing and dressing the streets and next year are adding a “Mini Concert” into the mix. This sounds like a bunch of fun and will be a welcome addition to the long list of activities already in place.

The South Island contingent is growing by the day and we now have 14 cars confirmed. This is by far the most we have hosted from the Deep South and they will be made very welcome.


Welcome back to CLASSIC COVER, confirming their GOLD Sponsorship Status for another year, so make sure you visit Larry and the team to discuss your Insurance options while they are on site.

We also welcome McCURDY ENGINEERING LTD as a BRONZE Sponsor. Wayne and Paul are very long standing supporters of the event and we thank them for their commitment to ensuring its success.

That’s about it for now  –  and just remember

“A weekend wasted is not necessarily a wasted weekend”


JR, Toni and Bob
