NZ Classic Driver
CRUISING & CHOOSING
Since our last edition it seems to have been raining almost continuously so I’ve been largely housebound. And, while my Lotus has been snuggling down in the garage, the builders have been busy at work installing bookshelves so that, after two years hidden from view within a stack of boxes, I was finally able to unpack all my books and automobilia. At the moment, it’s all a bit untidy (my friend Ashley wouldn’t approve) as I’ve still got to re-arrange stuff into some kind of order.
One of the biggest tasks was sifting through hundreds and hundreds of old motoring magazines – I really don’t know where they all came from! However, it was plain that it was well past time to make a major cull to weed out any multiple copies and also to make a few tough decisions about what to hang onto and what to bung out. I’m retaining my runs of local motoring magazines such as that “other” classic car publication and, of course, Classic Driver and Motor Man – the rest just have to go.
I’ve already found new homes for several hundred magazines, but I still have a load in need of new owners. So, if any readers feel the need to grab 100+ copies of Motor Sport (mostly from the ‘80s, but some from the ‘70s and ‘90s), or early copies of Thoroughbred & Classic Cars, this is your chance.
I’m not looking to sell these magazines – they’re free to fellow enthusiasts. Interested parties will have to pick the magazines up from Te Aroha (they’re way too heavy to consign to the postal service) – and if no one wants them, sadly they’ll all be heading off to the nearest recycling station.
