So guys and girls, our next meet will be a cruise out to Cable bay.

Meet at Wow carpark at 11am, cruise out to Cable bay around 11.30.

I'm not sure if there is a bbq out there but hopefully pog brings the bus out and we should be fine to use the wood fired bbq out there.

I do like Will's suggestion on meeting at a grasskahna event with the Nelson car club and I'll look into that for an up coming meet. 

Anyhoo see you guys at wow!

No problem at all!

It was a small meet but still a good drive/banter session. Thanks to those that came along.



Our next meet will coincide with the Sandy bay hillclimb  (Marahau)

I'll get details up in a day or 2

I'll be there in my racy UNO

Our next meet will be at the Sandy bay hillclimb (road to Marahau).

Between classes there is about a 20 minute break where spectators can walk up the road to different spots/driveways. I will be at the first driveway at around 9am

Bring your own chair, snacks and beverages and let's watch some hooning!


See you guys and girls there!

 I fully recommend it as a good day out to those who have not been to watch the hillclimb before. Some pretty choice varied machinery turns up because its a mix of Nelson car club weapons and Vintage car club weapons (with maybe the odd Uno mixed in...)

Have fun peoples!

I only seen a couple of oldschoolers today, and they were too busy driving fast to talk shit with me. Plus I spent most of my time there hiding in the bushes with my camera.

With such a wide range of vehicles it made for an interesting day and listening to all those unmuffled engines as they flew past was worth braving the cold morning.

I will start off with photos of Matts(MattJ) Anglia and Tonys (Ynot) Punto. Followed by random shots












So i've been thinking about over the winter months to having our meets at a local spot (Pub, Cafe, somewhere) on a set date every month like alot of the other cities do. Whats peoples thoughts on this? location suggestions welcome

There were quite a few uncaged cars there, think they were all with the vintage car club though.

Cool photos Shane! Any chance of a copy of that first one?

Ha - I don't think that the Beagle will qualify as vintage for quite a few years yet....

How was it Matt? More fun than terrifying?

Somewhere warm.  Brrrrrrrr.   The speights ale house at wow is warm and has ample parking. We did that meet there. But not exactly a characterful place.


But warm. Has fires. Is ideal for majority of Nelson folk. Plus if people start seeing regular old car meet there then more might come along.
