President’s Ramble – June 2018

A year ago I wrote that “I am hoping that my plea for more articles on your first encounters with a Peugeot has resulted in Jeanette having a few month’s articles in her armoury. If not please send your contributions to our editor – Jeanette – at jeanette_grant@hotmail.com now. She will still be eagerly awaiting […]

President’s Ramble – May 2018

Jeanette has given me limited space this time, and I am glad of it. Work pressures are on and they have me stretched, both for time and across physical locations. I have had jobs on in coastal Bay of Plenty, the Coromandel Peninsula, Long Bay, Inland Bay of Plenty, just over the regional body lines […]

President’s Ramble – April 2018

I would like to start this Ramble by acknowledging Auto Distributors New Zealand (The Peugeot Distributor) for allowing us access to their press cars to drive and review. Arek Zywot recently allowed me the privilege of driving a 5008GT for a slightly extended weekend period. I had never driven a car with so many electronic […]

President’s Ramble – March 2018

February 2018 did not go as one might plan it, at least not for the Club, cauliflower growers (have you seen their current prices?) nor for those in some very damaged and wet parts of the country. This weather and other events altered our timetable, as well as made those hearty and strong souls that […]

President’s Ramble – Feb 2018

Well I have had a lovely break and I hope you have as well. Those of you with the right contacts or incessant urges to follow Peugeot sales on Trademe will note that quite a bit has been going on with wheelings and dealings of Peugeots. Nick Watson has picked up a very nice 404 […]

President’s Ramble – September 2017

OK, this should be another short ramble as I am very busy with other commitments this month, some of them being club related, some work and some just life. Last month I hinted that we would do an economy run for the upcoming Fish and Chip run to Kaiaua. Well it has been confirmed, though […]

President’s July 2017 Ramble

This time last year we had a relatively dry winter; not this one. I don’t know how your grounds are, but mine are sodden, and we live on well draining volcanic soils. Between the rain and I suspect less sunshine, the first of our daffodils were about three weeks late coming out. However moaning, talking […]

President’s Ramble – March 2017

We are getting to the business end of the month, Gymkhana with Citroen and events with Wellington. Again I will just leave in from other months bits relevant to those events; other events in the meantime have come and gone. In November we triumphed over the other club, earning more points and for once maybe […]

President’s Ramble – November 2016

Every now and then I pick up one of my old motoring magazines just to re-read or occasionally read for the first time – (I didn’t always have time to read them properly when new). Most of them are New Zealand Classic Car Magazine, a magazine that I once subscribed to by way of an […]
