Early on Saturday morning 26th September, friends rang to invite us to their Clubs Blue September fund raiser for prostate cancer. As some of you may know I had a prostate operation almost a year ago, so this is very close to my heart to help promote men's health, especially with their prostate. I am aware that there are other men in the club who have also been through this ordeal and some of their partners who have weathered breast cancer. These charities need all the support they can get as they do provide an awesome service. There is Daffodil Day, Cancer Society. Pink Ribbon Day, Women's Health and Breast Cancer. Blue September, Men's Health and Prostate Cancer.
After waking up, we fired up the poor old Javelin and headed to our meeting with Judy and David Just at 3 furlongs car park in Kiawaka. Dave and Judy recently acquired a Formula 400 Pontiac Firebird, which is powered by a big block with alloy heads, Fitech injection, and custom headers. Sure is a nice looking car with the exhausts emitting just the right amount of noise, and certainly a lot quicker than my small twin choke 304cid Javelin!
Arriving at Okara Repco we parked up to watch many other classic cars old and late, rods, T Buckets, and motor cycles rumble into the car park.
There was a good mix from 100E Prefect and soft top Morris Minor, to a whole host of American Iron to please the eye and the senses.
There were raffles, sauses in blankets. and soft drinks on sale to raise money, along with donation buckets to also help the fund.
Overall a very enjoyable sunny warm day spent with like minded car people. Cheers Peter.
Club member Gary Beattie has a 1960 Pontiac Bonneville convertible, and needs a great mechanic to replace the engine/transmission seal...also may need the transmission reconditioned as when it gets hot it gets stuck in gear.
Can anyone recommend the right person for him to talk too.... Contact Gary on 021 0415735
