Although not an official club event, a small number of members (Jim Banks, Kyle Apanui, Robbie Apanui and myself) attended the Howick Hop on Saturday 9th March and dodged the on and off rain showers as much as we could.
After a 7.30am meet up at Robbie's, we drove the short distance to the village to be parked up by 8am. As part of the entry, Hop participants received a voucher for a $15 brunch contribution valid at 3 eateries so a great reward for our participation.
Jim was interviewed by the local radio station DJ about his Mini!
There was a vast array of impressive hot rods and classic cars on display (120 registered). The organisers are hoping to increase the number of registrations and road closures for the 2020 event, due to the overwhelmingly positive response from the classic car and hot rod communities.
The show finished at 2pm and seemed to be enjoyed by all.
