Our Cover

Vintage cars, vintage cars! The place was crawling with them. So this month we feature a few of the oldtimers which visited us. Top Left–This 1914 Delage roadster is owned by Mr W. D. Read of Dunedin. It has a 10hp side valve engine with the mani­fold in the block and a four speed gear box. Top Right–A 1910 Sunbeam Talbot and Darracq is the pride and joy of Mr Trevor Witte of Christchurch. Bottom Left–­This 1911 Renault Charabanc could be the oldest fully licensed passenger vehicle in the world. It was restored by the Auckland Vintage Car Club over seven years as a weekly club project. It seats 12 and is capable of 25 mph. Bottom Right–­From Sydney is this 1909 four cylinder Max­well owned by Stan Rumble.
