Chang­ing times

New Zealand Classic Car - - Editorial - Ash­ley Webb Edi­tor

In last month’s is­sue, I wrote about how I’d ig­nored my bucket list for so long un­til Garry Boyce’s Inca Rally story (read part two in this is­sue) prompted me into dust­ing it off and com­menc­ing a plan­ning strat­egy to start tick­ing a few more boxes. I was de­lighted by the fact that, as re­sult of my ed­i­to­rial, a few oth­ers have also been in­spired to put pen to pa­per and jot down sev­eral must-do items on their lists. I truly hope you all get to achieve your goals and ful­fil your dreams, wishes, and as­pi­ra­tions in the fu­ture.

On an­other note, there are a few changes afoot here at head of­fice. Todd Wylie, edi­tor of our sis­ter pub­li­ca­tion NZV8 mag­a­zine and man­ag­ing edi­tor across all our mo­tor­ing ti­tles, has de­cided to move out of the big smoke and head south to Welling­ton with his fam­ily for a life­style change. I have worked along­side Todd for the best part of 13 years, and his help has been in­valu­able over the last year or so as I’ve tran­si­tioned into the edi­tor’s role of this mag­a­zine. All is not lost, though, as Todd’s still keep­ing on with his in­volve­ment with NZV8, and will also be able to pro­vide valu­able op­por­tu­ni­ties for New Zealand Clas­sic Car in the lower North Is­land as well.

Se­condly, Park­side Tow­ers is also on the move. Af­ter about 10 years at our Grey Lynn ad­dress, we will move even closer into the city. As of May 1, we will be lo­cated on Up­per Queen Street in a pur­pose-de­signed en­vi­ron­ment to com­ple­ment cre­ativ­ity for our ed­i­to­rial, on­line, and de­sign teams, which are vi­tal el­e­ments to the on­go­ing suc­cess of our pub­li­ca­tions.

And last but not least, you will have no­ticed sev­eral ar­ti­cles writ­ten by Lach­lan Jones over the last few months. I’ve been some­what re­miss in for­mally wel­com­ing Lachie to the team af­ter he joined us on a part-time ba­sis to as­sist me in my role. Lachie brings with him a wealth of knowl­edge and a fresh new per­spec­tive, par­tic­u­larly when it comes to ‘mod­ern clas­sics’ as well as new ve­hi­cles. He also con­trib­utes to our web­site the­mo­tor­ and other dig­i­tal-me­dia plat­forms. I’m look­ing for­ward to work­ing more with Lachie, as we have a few plans up our sleeve for fu­ture is­sues that I’m sure you will en­joy. Till next month …
