John and I have been doing the magazine for 3 years now and we both felt it was time for some new fresh ideas and hoped somebody would step forward. Well they have in the guise of Mike and Cass Powell!!! Mike is Tony Powells brother and has been a club member for two years. but has not been settled in Auckland that long. This is a great way for the two of them to meet up with members and we hope you will give them all the support they need when they are looking for photos, articles etc. We would just like to thank everybody for the support and encouragement we have had in the three years we have been doing the magazine and hope everybody has enjoyed reading the publication as much as we have enjoyed compiling it. It has enabled us to get to know a lot of you better and we have formed some great friendships in this time.

The days are getting shorter and it is a bit cooler at night making it easier to sleep. There is still plenty going on as far as activities are concerned so I do hope you are all enjoying the programme of events. Easter has come and gone and hope you had a great long weekend. The March club meeting at CTB was well attended and it was good to visit a facility like this to see the impact the new mustang is having here in NZ and the number of upgrades being ordered. Many thanks to Colin, Sam and team for hosting us. The All Ford Day at Blake Park was a big affair with over 800 Ford’s on display so I am sure the organisers were really happy. It is funny that these events in the provinces can attract large crowds whereas local Auckland events sometimes struggle. The Auckland All Ford Day is on 10 April and hopefully AMOC can once again put on a large display. The event is being held again at Smales Farm on the Shore. Beachhop is also another big event that quite a few of our members attend and this year because of the Easter break a number are turning it into a very long holiday. Hopefully the weather stays fine and the extra day of organised activities is enjoyed by those who going to the Coromandel. National Mustang Day is on the 17 April and will celebrate 52 years since the Mustang first went on sale in the States. To help celebrate the occasion we are having a run to look at some cars in a shed and then heading to Villa Maria to put on a display and have lunch. I do hope we can get a good turnout of cars. The annual Anzac Run with Waikato and Bay of Plenty will be on the 1st of May. The run will take us to Matamata for lunch and some games where we will defend the cup which we won last year. This is always a fun day with plenty of friendly rivalry. Our club AGM will be on the 4th May and this is your opportunity to help shape the club for the next 12 months. All positions on committee from the Presidency up are all to be voted on. If you are interested in being on committee then please let me know. If you are unsure and want more information then give me a ring to talk about what’s involved. At this stage I believe some committee members want a break while others are happy to throw their names into the ring again. There will also be some items up for general discussion so please do try to make the meeting and have your say. The 31st of March will see the end of the club’s financial year. Subscriptions are the same as last year being $60 for a renewal and will be due from the 1st April. Again we will be asking everyone to complete a renewal form with all your contact details. We are hopeful that we can make the form such that you can complete it online rather than print it out and fill in by hand. Here’s hoping technology won’t interfere and we would ask that you have patience with us. The Convention organisation is progressing well and it is hoped that registration forms will be available soon. It is very pleasing to see the large number of rooms already booked at the Spencer on Byron Hotel. This promises to be a great event and you shouldn’t miss it. I hope to see you at the next event. Ian President’s Report 5 Tonights meeting was held at CTB Performance and Accessories in Cavendish Drive Manukau City. The official aspect of the meeting was kept brief with Ian giving a report on past events and an update of coming events. Daphne updated the clubs financial position and Craig provided an update on convention planning and the upcoming auction. Raffle Results: 1st Ray Bancroft 2nd ME!!! (John) 3rd Keith Robertson The $20 Jackpost was not struck and will jackpot to $30 at the April Meeting. Part 2 of the evening then got underway. Samuel, assisted by Chris and Colin of CTB gave a very informative and interesting run down on what happens at their workshop. A lot of their work is upgrades to the new Mustangs as was evident by the array of various new Ponys in the shop. They also carry out performance work on older cars, Ford and Holden. Check them out on www.ctb.co.nz or firstname.lastname@example.org Club Night Wednesday 2nd March 6 7 My highlight of the night was Keith Robertson’s Roush’s final run on the dyno. 149 mph and 394 hp at the rear wheels. The supercharged R53 at full noise was fantastic. A great night, something different and thanks to Ian for the Organisation. 8 . For Sale 64 Ford Pony (April) 289 4V, automatic convertible.

We own a 2016GT in Oxford White with contrasting factory black roof, wheels and after market stripe kit. It is fitted with CTB’s Stage 2 performance package (cold air box, Borla exhaust) and a spring lowering kit. Too many other little add-ons to name (Richard is addicted to CJ Pony Parts website). We ordered the car in September 2014 and it was delivered in January 2016. We may be biased, but it is one of the best examples we have seen. We are a true blue Ford family - having owned Escorts, Capris, numerous Falcons and FPV’s over the years - but Richard has always loved American cars. The impending demise of the Australian Falcon, the fact our family is largely grown up (so we didn't need another Falcon taxi) and the promise of the new 2015 Mustang was the catalyst. We are still on the lookout for a classic Mustang. Kathy is interested in horse riding, anything creative and arty, and socialising. Richard enjoys motorsport, shooting and brewing beer. We both like to travel. Our future plans are to acquire a classic Mustang (66 notchback would be nice) and a 2016 Shelby GT350. Dream Mustang: Probably a 1965 Shelby GT350. Member Profile Richard Fitch & Kathy Edwards 10 Ian, Tony Kaye and Daphne presented their various reports concerning the official part of the evening leading to the introduction of the guest speaker for the night - Club member, Glenn Turner. This is the second time I have heard Glenn speak and I have to say he is extremely relaxed, informative and entertaining. He spoke on Bio Security issues, especially around the importation of cars and containers. Continuing vigilance is required when you consider that in 2010 83 reptiles were found in sea containers and in 2015 that number had grown to 300. Containers from South East Asia, America and Australia appear to be the worst examples with feral cats, Bats and venomous spiders being found. A very interesting talk, well delivered by Glenn. “Craigs List”, the monthly insurance talk was again very interesting with a wide variety of issues discussed. The Breakdown Trophy has a new home at the Kales, who had the misfortune to have generator problems at the Parade at Beach Hop. The member jackpot draw of $50 was not struck and increases to $40 for the May Meeting. Raffle Results: 1 s t 86 Ian Waters 2 n d 21 Ray Bancroft 3 r d 04 Barbara Lack. Next Meeting May 4th.

Lunch stop was at Tirau with an approximate arrival time at Wairakei Resort of 2.15pm. Dinner was the Kiwi BBQ buffet at Fairway Café which is an outdoor setting alongside the 19th hole bar. Saturday was a big mileage day with a drive through to the National Army Museum at Waiouru. It was then on to the Chateau Tongariro for a photo shoot and high tea. Back to Wairakei for the 7.30pm Seafood buffet dinner at Pavillion Restaurant. Sunday and after a 10am check out it was home time for some and a Tiki tour for others…..Great weekend. If you haven't been on one of these weekends seriously think about it next year. Wairakei Weekend Away 19-21 February 15 16 WHY HOLD A CONVENTION???? A Fair question, given the costs involved, the hundreds of hours of planning, arranging site visits to possible accom- modation & show venues, endless committee meetings, getting people involved in giving their time & expertise in everything from filling goodie bags to organising the showing of the cars! Then of course the people who travel with their mustangs from all corners of the country & clean their prized possessions for showing, only to drive them home again and more than likely clean them thoroughly again. So, why bother? Since the first all Mustang convention held in Taranaki over Labour weekend in 1979 (the 1978 show was a Cadillac & Mustang show) there has been some 36 National Mustang Conventions, the 2016 year is the 37th National Convention. So there is a rich history of the 5 Mustang clubs hosting the conventions until 2011 when the Southern Mustang Owners Club hosted a very successful convention with 250 + members present, despite their smaller club membership number. It is worth noting that already there are over 100 rooms booked at the Spencer On Byron for the 2016 Convention, some 7 months before the Labour weekend event. Furthermore, the 2010 Convention held here in Auckland was run at a surplus and those funds were to be held to fund future conventions. The current committee are committed to ensure that this convention pays its way and does not impact on club funds. Having been privileged to attend six conventions, here’s some reasons why I Iook forward to labour weekends at a convention. Firstly, I love Mustangs, the early classics have a unique appeal, bearing in mind these are the cars that launched the single most successful automotive release & sales volume in the history of cars. Yes, a huge vote of respect & honour must surely follow these icons. The 67 & 68 models while being closely reminiscent of the early cars, these cars put the “Muscle” into the Mustang with a new range of big & powerful engines along with the exposure of such cars as the “Bullitt” and a host of other publicity exposures, again stamping their own unique place in car history. The 69 & 70 Mustangs are my own personal favourites and it is these wonderful cars that spawned the famous Boss amongst other momentous models such as the H Code & closure of the Shelby cars for some 38 years! Then followed the “big Mustangs” of 71 – 73, these cars, bringing closure on 9 momentous years of this easily recognisable marque 17 Take a look at the “Conventions” segment on the NZMustang.com website and look at the convention photos of the early years. You will see very proud owners of the cars from that era and these are the good folk who enthusiastically went about forming the early clubs and of course making the 1st and many following conventions a reality. In my humble opinion, a vote of gratitude is indeed due to these dedicated Mustang owners who kicked this wonderful tradition off.! The strong desire we have to chat & compare notes with people who have similar models to our own Mustang is probably a strong case for something more formal than a local get together & run, surely a convention in the making! Secondly, while the cars are indeed the common denominator in the desire to hold a convention it is fair to say that the people who make up the New Zealand Mustang owners clubs and who make the work involved in putting a convention together, the time & effort in everything from planning the venue to the final farewell breakfast, a successful rewarding experience. It is these folk from all walks of life who have a story or three about why they chose a Mustang, how they came upon their car, its history, the issues they have encountered, the trips away, possibly done Route 66 or being at a new model launch, going to the Shelby factory, not to mention the fun they have had getting to know other Mustang owners. These interesting people create a rich tapestry of experience who are only too willing to drive from one end of the country to the other, only to clean their car to an exacting standard and have it judged with other like cars. A chance to look at a collection of Mustangs from all over New Zealand and enjoy a lot of fun at the Friday evening get together & traditional Sunday run, the Sunday evening dress-up & prize-giving is always a huge fun event, not to mention the inevitable dance that follows! So if you enjoy meeting interesting Mustang folk from across the country who invariably leave a convention having formed more new friendships that will last a lifetime, then we are so much the better for attending yet another convention, money well spent I would suggest! Conversely, there are a lot of Mustang owners throughout this great little country who chose not to belong to a club and that is their choice, but for me and a whole bunch of others, there are few things that rival the challenge and fun of a well-run national Mustang convention. See you there in 2016………. Bruce Lewis 18 As usual Noddy did an amazing job with the organization and smooth running of the Whangamata Beach Hop. The volunteers from Whangamata work tirelessly over the 6 days and all the monies collected go back in to the community. We were speaking to the Headmaster from the local school who received a cash injection of $15,000 last year! So a big boost for the township. John and I spent our 5th Hop down there with a bach full of people - the more the merrier and enjoyed seeing so many other Mustang Club Members doing the same. The weather the prior weekend was glorious so it was no surprise that it turned out “iffy” this weekend. It was raining when the Parade started which was a bit of a dampener for the Rock n Rollers who led the parade from various areas around the North Island but after about half an hour the sun came out for the rest of the day. Made for glorious viewing at the Ocean Sports Club for our lunch. Okay okay it is alright to take an hour break from the cars - isn't it??? John is devastated that it went so quickly and already counting down the days to next years. 19 20 The Art of Travelling in Convoy The musings of an old bloke who has been trying to travel in a convoy of MUSTANGS for more years than he would like to record. We all like to travel with a Mustang in front and a Mustang in the rear view mirror. Makes for a very enjoyable experience. It used to also assist with braking – you knew the car in front and the one behind had bad brakes as well – so nose-to-tails were less likely. But now we have all these “lazy” folk who like to drive flash new Mustangs with proper suspension, tyres and brakes (ABS). Even though many have a “proper” Mustang at home.……… (lets not stir that up – each to their own). Back to the guts of the article. The object of a convoy is to try and stay together and the following may help. In the city at traffic lights there are often 2 lanes for a short distance through the lights. The purpose is to get as many vehicles through on each phase. So in this case USE BOTH LANES and when we merge on the other side we are back in convoy. All politely staying in the left lane means we merge with a pile of Jappas on the other side and “hello” where has our convoy gone, and only half the group got through. Watch the Mustang in your rear mirror and slow down if they drop back. The car in front of you will do the same and we will stay together. Easier than trying to chase the car in front. However if the car behind is shagging around – forget them and chase the car in front. Seriously, do try and keep up or else the cars at the back seem to be hardly moving. Someone intelligent may be able to explain the physics of why the back car always goes much slower than the front one. Stop to regroup and have a chat occasionally. Good social stuff, chance for some photos, and the public love to see a bunch of Muzzies assembled together. When we take off again, keep an eye on your wing mirror and it is best if the last car pulls out first (sort of blocking the traffic) and everyone else pulls out together. Also the last car has the best view of when a gap is coming. Guess what – we are still in convoy formation. If you are pulling over for a comfort stop, a snog or some other personal reason, make sure you, or preferably someone on the right side of the car, gives the thumbs up so the following cars don’t stop to help – especially when you are intending to do something private with which you do not need help. No doubt there are lots of other useful suggestions out there so lets have them. WE GOT OURSELVES A CONVOY…………………... Lance Jerkovich 21 Pakuranga Rotary Club Carnival 20th March 2016 Pakuranga Rotary asked for 5 Mustangs to exhibit at their fundraising carnival. As it turned out, the organisers also knew of a few more Mustangs, so on the day we had 7 Mustangs plus a nice assortment of other vehicles including a 1912 Sunbeam – quite an engineering masterpiece with lots of polished brass. Upon arrival, it appeared we might have problems bottoming out as there was a ditch between us and where we had to park. With some ingenuity we were able to drive parallel to the ditch and cross on an angle further along without any problems (although I must admit I let someone else do this before I did)! It was a laid back but well organised affair and even Lollipop the Clown turned up in his Porsche with lots of balloons to entertain us all. One of the Mustangs was a 2016 GT looking spectacular in Oxford White. Oxford White is a frozen crisp white and really did look good (maybe white is the new black)? It was great to have a chance to have a good look over the current model at our leisure and discuss it with the owner, who incidentally loves the car. Although there were threatening rain clouds it stayed fine and the convertibles had their tops down, however there was one problem. A nice morning tea and lunch was provided for us in the adjacent clubrooms. I went there twice and both times, while I was quite a distance from the car, it rained and the inside of my car got wet! I decided no more food or coffee for me and of course, it never rained again! Thanks to teamwork by all those there, all cars were dried inside and out and continued to look pristine throughout the carnival. 22 We had a great day and before we knew it, the time had come to leave. It was suggested we couldn’t just go straight home – how about a beer at Applejacks in Highland Park. Four Mustangs (3 were convertibles, 3 were black) duly arrived at the agreed ‘watering hole’ where we quenched our thirst and got to know each other better. The day epitomised what I believe AMOC is about – meeting new and interesting people, making new friends. To cap the day off, we were emailed on the Monday after and told our efforts assisted in raising $5,000 for Rotary.

It was meant to be! Absolutely love it and I get to drive it to work on a daily ba- sis. We are looking forward to meeting other Mustang car enthusiasts in the club. 25 Happy Birthday Mike Adams, 60 Years Young on 23 April!!!

Then in January I came across a FaceBook page called Northland Mustang Owners Group. After making contact with Wayne Donnelly, we decided to make something happen. A date was set and then Pacific Motors were approached to use their yard for the Northland Mustang Muster. It was promoted on Facebook, via the AMOC email database and we were given a few free adverts in the Northern Advocate. At first the response was a bit slow and we were thinking about 15 cars might turn up, but then in the week prior to the event emails, txt’s and phone calls flowed in. Saturday 19th Dawned rather damp and drizzly but by 3PM the sun was out and the cars were arriving. In a period of about 45 minutes we had 32 cars roll in. Wow, I was blown away! A fantastic turnout. Cars ranged from the 64 Notchback to the new 2016 RHD models. 4 Cars from Auckland made the effort to come up – thanks guys! Plus we had cars from Wellsford, Mangawhai, Dargaville, Kerikeri and of course Whangarei. There were some AMOC members and hopefully we can get a few more to join up. At 4.45pm we cruised out to Waipu Cove Café for a dinner which many of the cars went to. Being the first event of its kind up here we know we can build on it and turn it into something even better in due course.

Then in January I came across a FaceBook page called Northland Mustang Owners Group. After making contact with Wayne Donnelly, we decided to make something happen. A date was set and then Pacific Motors were approached to use their yard for the Northland Mustang Muster. It was promoted on Facebook, via the AMOC email database and we were given a few free adverts in the Northern Advocate. At first the response was a bit slow and we were thinking about 15 cars might turn up, but then in the week prior to the event emails, txt’s and phone calls flowed in. Saturday 19th Dawned rather damp and drizzly but by 3PM the sun was out and the cars were arriving. In a period of about 45 minutes we had 32 cars roll in. Wow, I was blown away! A fantastic turnout. Cars ranged from the 64 Notchback to the new 2016 RHD models. 4 Cars from Auckland made the effort to come up – thanks guys! Plus we had cars from Wellsford, Mangawhai, Dargaville, Kerikeri and of course Whangarei. There were some AMOC members and hopefully we can get a few more to join up. At 4.45pm we cruised out to Waipu Cove Café for a dinner which many of the cars went to. Being the first event of its kind up here we know we can build on it and turn it into something even better in due course.
