All going well I will take the Healey there - just need to get the overdrive sorted which won't engage all of the time.

It is only held every 2 years and there was some nice stuff there last time, hopefully the weather is good.

Make sure you enter before you go, they like to "select" cars, not just have cars turn up,  plus be ready for an early start - like being there at 8am and can't get your car until 4pm

This will be why they only get 160 cars, yet the Marlborough Hospice car show gets 500 in a region with 50,000 people.

There isn't that much flat land in Akaroa and for whatever reason the organisers seem to want it to be 'by invite'.  Regardless, there was some nice stuff there and the weather was great.  Not so the overdrive in the Healey...


Anyone recognise the white Daimler by any chance...

They perhaps limit numbers so the reserve has a chance to survive all the leaked oil. If I didn't have to deal with extra traffic on the road to Akaroa I would have popped over for a look.
