Galaxy of Cars

New Zealand Classic Car - - NATIONWIDE NEWS - Words and Pho­tos Al­lan Wal­ton

It’s been a while since I at­tended Galaxy of Cars, now be­ing held at West­ern Springs sta­dium rather than MO­TAT. Or­ga­nized by the New Lynn Li­ons, the show is al­ways popular although, as Auck­land’s long dry spell de­cided to break the day of the show, a driz­zly morn­ing re­sulted in a lower than ex­pected gate en­try and a few gaps in the dis­play area. How­ever, there was still a good turnout of show cars and spec­ta­tors, with ev­ery­one en­joy­ing the day — es­pe­cially when the weather im­proved af­ter mid­day.

Ac­com­pa­nied by chief or­ga­nizer, Noel Moun­tjoy of the New Lynn Li­ons, we spent a pleas­ant hour or so wan­der­ing around the sta­dium grounds, greet­ing a few friends and check­ing out an ex­tremely var­ied col­lec­tion of clas­sic cars.

The char­ity ben­e­fit­ting from this year’s Galaxy of Cars was The Child Mo­bil­ity Foun­da­tion, and although the do­na­tion will be limited, the New Lynn Li­ons be­lieve it will be enough to fund at least one Hart Walker frame.
