Letter from Linda
Our first car show ever!!!! …. By Linda Giles
You asked for comments about the recent car show in Porirua. Well here's some feedback.
To anyone who has never attended a car show like this - YOU MUST ABSOLUTELY GO!!!
We travelled up from Christchurch especially for this event.
Kev was so anxious his little DUZGO No.10 would be not up to the task. We knew there would be some pretty great and spectacular cars and talent present.
We wondered if we would be "the little fire engine wanting to be bigger ... or "scuffy the tugboat" if you remember the stories of many childhood's past.
What we found was a very welcoming atmosphere; a great bunch of friendly people; wonderful conversation and good hospitality.
What we didn't find was "one-upmanship", the "mine’s better than yours (idiot) mentality; or competitiveness.
All in all, an incredibly memorable experience, that we will value forever.
Great job done by all club members, and all those that worked extremely hard behind the scenes to make the event the sucess it was.
Last comment, Patrick Harlow’s book is just awesome. If you haven't got his last one (the blue book) you are missing out on something worthwhile.
If any member is down Chch way come visit for a BBQ and beer (assuming our house is still standing).
Cheers to you all - happy motoring
Linda ...the wife of Kevin & his "scuffy" - Duzgo No 10.
