CLUB COR­NER

New Zealand Classic Car - - CONTENTS -

When you men­tion the words ‘car club’, it of­ten con­jures up images of mid­dle-aged men in tweed caps, puff­ing on pipes, with their head un­der the bon­net in pub car parks. Well, the TVR Car Club New Zea­land does some of that (per­haps not the tweed caps and pipes bit), but the club is more about TVR fans and own­ers — past, present, and fu­ture — shar­ing sto­ries, tech­ni­cal know-how, buy­ing ad­vice, pho­tos, events, and gen­eral ban­ter about ev­ery­thing TVR.

Club pres­i­dent and TVR guru Jim Gamsby or­ga­nizes a Sun­day meet once a month in Auck­land, and the club has an an­nual get­to­gether at the Brit and Euro Clas­sic Car Show in Paku­ranga (next on March 3, 2019).

Re­cently, TVR turned 70, and a few mem­bers caught up for a drive through to Port Waikato via Hamp­ton Downs race­way to cel­e­brate. The club is also plan­ning to get a group to­gether for the Lead­foot Fes­ti­val early next year.

For more in­for­ma­tion, or to get in touch, con­tact Jim Gamsby at jimg@tvrnz.co.nz. A grow­ing TVR own­ers and en­thu­si­asts on­line com­mu­nity has also been set up. Search ‘NZ TVR Own­ers & En­thu­si­asts’ on Face­book.
