CNHMTC helps Newbury, NH with Old Home Day

Author: Laurens Monday, 17 July 2017

On behalf of club members who participated, Steve & Debbie Sanborn (tour organizers, in what I believe was a 20s touring with top up), Vinny, Pat & Jake Greco (in their 23-touring with top up), Nancy (our A member) with Mr. T Clark, club Secretary Ken & Sandy LeBlanc (1923 touring with top up), Warren & Hunter (a.k.a. my shadow) Henderson (the only members brave enough to have their, 1-man top down while touring) I want to THANK Steve and Debbie for putting on yet another great tour! We traveled over some of the most scenic back roads (paved and dirt) to be found in the State of New Hampshire on our 55-mile trip from Bow to Newbury. There we had reserved parking at the town dock and enjoyed picnic lunches while displaying our vehicles for the Old Home Day Celebration. There were many things to see and do, Steve and Debbie even arranged to have the cars washed while we ate lunch! Later we continued touring (using routes NH-103 & US 202) on the 28-mile trip to Beech Hill Farm in Hopkinton for a mandatory ice cream stop!! Ken and Sandy had over 175 total miles leaving and returning from Haverhill, Mass., Steve and Debbie, living in Newbury, NH had more miles than I did. I myself had a total of 111 miles in Taurus (my 1926 Model T touring), It goes without saying, we all enjoyed another fantastic tour with club members and wish that more of you could have been along for the ride with us.

Happy motoring,
Warren Henderson

Veteran Car Rally in Queensland, Australia

Author: Peter Ransom (jury member) Thursday, 13 July 2017

Veteran Car Rally in Queensland, AustraliaThe Veteran Car Club of Australia (Queensland) recently held a major rally based in Maryborough, the birthplace of P.L. Travers, author of Mary Poppins.  Our rally was run in conjunction with the annual Mary Poppins Festival and it gave many of our 50 crews the opportunity to dress in period costume.
Picture 1:  Unidentified car - probably a Brush - on the single lane bridge over the Mary River at Tiaro.
Picture 2:  My wife with our 1914 12-16 Sunbeam.
Picture 3:  Just a small sample of the period costume worn by our crews
Picture 4:  Brush, Crossley and Studebaker
Picture 5:  1915 Napier 
Picture 6:   Rally Director Terry Lewis is having trouble starting the Waverley.

Mystery Aero Screen

Author: Steven Lines Wednesday, 12 July 2017

Mystery Aero ScreenDoes anyone know the manufacturer and date of this aero screen please? It is from a pre war car but may have been fitted post war.

At first I thought it was a home made screen using flexible plastic. But then I saw the plastic had the word "Brooklands" and a logo formed in it!

Author: Richard Wilson Tuesday, 04 July 2017

This is some info for your British readers if you watch Talking Pictures  Channels Freeview 81 Freesat 306 Sky 343 Virgin 445 Thursday 6th July 5.10AM. They are showing a film called Calling all Cars .
The car in question is a Jaguar 120 reg MDU 524 Which according to google is the car Norman Dewis used to drive as a record attempt in Belgium .
The car in the film looks a bit different the thing that drew me to look at the car more closely is the filler cap arrangement
Regards and thanks
