Sun­beam Lake Ferry Ex­cur­sion

New Zealand Classic Car - - Nationwide News -

This year marks the 36th an­niver­sary of the an­nual Lake Ferry Ex­cur­sion, or­ga­nized by the Sun­beam Car Club of NZ ( Welling­ton), and 2015’s event will take place on De­cem­ber 12.

As al­ways, the event starts with en­trants meet­ing up at the Fell Lo­co­mo­tive Mu­seum in Feather­ston at 11am for an 11.30 de­par­ture to Lake Ferry, where par­tic­i­pants can meet to talk over a pic­nic lunch or stroll across to the Lake Ferry Ho­tel for a pub meal. The driv­ers’ briefing takes place at 11.20am by the big oak tree out­side the mu­seum.

As well as clas­sic Sun­beams, or­ga­niz­ers wel­come all other carclub mem­bers along on the day and, in­deed, also wel­come peo­ple who don’t be­long to a car club — the day is all about driv­ing clas­sic cars and meet­ing and talk­ing to fel­low en­thu­si­asts; it isn’t about be­long­ing to a club.

In the past, the event has been at­tended by English, Amer­i­can, Ital­ian, and French cars, while clubs rep­re­sented have in­cluded the Con­struc­tors Car Club, Corvette Club, Capri Car Club, Mus­tang Club, and Early Amer­i­can Car Club, as well as many other smaller clubs.
