The Golden Bay A & P Show 2015
The annual Golden Bay A & P Show held at the Takaka show grounds on Saturday the 18th of January 2015, was well attended by about 60 cars all told, from our club and also the Vintage Car Club Nelson, Chrysler Club, Ford Club, Vauxhall Club and some privateers turning up to swell the ranks. The day was extreemly hot but very pleasant under the trees. The grand parade took place at about 1:30pm and many participants made a quiet exit after that.
A brief overview of the quality of the display
Rai Valley A&P Show 2015
Left: is the restored and fully functional traction engine which powered a sawmill on this very site many decades ago. It is powering a stationary hay baler on the other end of the belt giving demo's to the public. Very impressive!
Right: Some of the display inside the main building, cars from the 50's, 60's, 70's, & 80's+
Left: Our contingent of vehicles just before the rain devastated the day. Unfortunately the weather forecast put many people off as attendance was dramatically down.
Right: The new Omaka Clssic car collection at Blenhiem. This is well worth a visit, it displays many of the cars we owned & drove and makes a nice change from the all American displays we are used to. A privately owned collection and very well presented.
