Vin­tage speed­way

Classic Driver - - LETTERS -

Hi Tony, first of all it’s nice to see people like Andy Buchanan pass­ing on trea­sures he had and avoid­ing the dump sce­nario. A sad end to so much his­tory which is of­ten lost.

The ar­ti­cle about V8-60s had me sit­ting a lit­tle straighter in the chair. My club, the Auck­land Vin­tage Speed­way Club is mak­ing our next meet­ing (23 March) a fo­cus on these mid­gets. So far we have 12-14 cars whose own­ers have agreed to come out and play. Most will be on track al­though a cou­ple will only be static. With our other cars sup­port­ing the V8s, chances are we could hit the 30 mark in car count, with VW, Willys, Holden & TQ Mid­gets, Vin­tage stock­cars, and solo bikes bring­ing back mem­o­ries. I’d be happy to for­ward pho­tos of the event as a fol­low up. Hope we see more of Andy’s trea­sures. Mal Parsons Auck­land TH I look for­ward to see­ing the pho­tos from your March meet­ing; vin­tage speed­way cars are a branch of the sport we don’t see or hear much of.
