The Chevro­let En­thu­si­asts Club of New Zealand O

New Zealand Classic Car - - Club Corner -

n the back of our 50 years of Ca­maro fea­ture, we thought we’d help those with a de­sire to learn what own­ing a Chevy is all about.

The Chevro­let En­thu­si­asts Club of New Zealand en­cour­ages and sup­ports the preser­va­tion and restora­tion of all Chevro­let ve­hi­cles, and the en­joy­ment of motoring in and dis­play­ing them.

The Chevro­let En­thu­si­asts Club was formed by a small number of keen Chevro­let own­ers in 1972. At that time, monthly meet­ings were held at mem­bers’ homes, and the club soon pros­pered to be­come one of New Zealand’s most es­tab­lished one-make car clubs.

The Chevro­let En­thu­si­asts Club caters for all mod­els of Chevro­lets — orig­i­nal, per­son­al­ized, re­stored, clas­sic and mod­ern. Own­ers of other GM ve­hi­cles are also wel­come to join the club.

If you have a ve­hi­cle and are in the process of get­ting it back on the road, it is al­ways good to be able to join with fel­low en­thu­si­asts to dis­cuss your project, get their ad­vice and take ad­van­tage of their ex­pe­ri­ence.

The club has an ex­ten­sive li­brary, in ad­di­tion to a spare parts de­part­ment which is avail­able to mem­bers, and lo­cated at the Auck­land Clu­b­rooms.

You do not have to own a Chevro­let to be­long to the club.

The club has a mem­ber­ship through­out New Zealand, with monthly meet­ings held at the Auck­land Clu­b­rooms in Manukau.

There are also monthly out­ings to places of in­ter­est, so this is an op­por­tu­nity for you to use your Chevro­let. Oth­er­wise, you are more than wel­come to par­tic­i­pate in any car of in­ter­est, or even your regular daily-drive.

Club mem­bers can of­fer tech­ni­cal as­sis­tance, as many cur­rent mem­bers have ex­per­tise in most mod­els of Chevro­lets. Mem­bers re­ceive 11 is­sues of the club mag­a­zine The Bow Tie per year, and can ad­ver­tise for free in the For Sale, Wanted or Swap sec­tion. The Club has or­ga­nized the Pukekohe Swap Meet for the last few years, and has seen a resur­gence in in­ter­est in the event.

The club mem­bers are very proud own­ers of a 1942 Chevro­let bus which has been fully re­stored, and is used on many oc­ca­sions for club out­ings and shows.
