Meguiar’s Car Crazy Charity Cruise is back!

16 May, 2017

Is your ride itching for a mid-winter cruise? Is your ride a hot rod, modified or a god damn big-rig?!? Well Meguiar’s have something coming up you’ll be into.

Alongside Meguiar’s Annual Car Crazy Charity Cruise, they will also be running a Rislone Big Rig Truckin’ Charity Cruise.

Saturday the 22nd July will be for the Big Rigs and Sunday the 23rd for the cars. All registration fees will be donated entirely to the Starship Foundation.

Both events will be departing at 8:30am on their respective days from Smit’s Group/Meguiar’s head office at 23 Greenmount Drive then taking a lazy scenic route through to CRC Speedshow.

For the car cruisers, registration is $50 per car and includes a ticket to the CRC Speedshow for the driver and all passengers as well as a Smit’s Group voucher and plenty of Meguiar’s goodies as well as your chance to win the ultimate prize in the Show and Shine (every legitimate vote received for your ride will get 50c donated to the Starship Foundation by Meguiar’s). Check out for more info.

The Big Rig’s registration is $50 and once again includes you and your passengers tickets to the CRC Speedshow as well as a Smit’s Group voucher and plenty of Rislone goodies to take home. Check out for more info.

The Meguiar’s Car Crazy Charity Cruise and Big Rig Truckin’ Charity Cruise are limited to well-presented vehicles only – which could be customs, classics, hot rods, imports and street machines (and of course, Big Rigs for Saturday’s cruise). So get them out and looking their best so you get lots of votes in the People’s Choice Award.
Due to the popularity of this charity cruise, places will not be confirmed until payment has been received, and is strictly on a ‘first in, first served’ basis.

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.

A passion for classics and customs

In the highly competitive field of New Zealand classic and custom restorations, reputations are won or lost on the ability to maintain consistently high standards of workmanship. A company managing to achieve this is D A Panel beating Ltd, of Rangiora near Christchurch. Is your classic or custom car restoration stalled, or in need of a refresh, or perhaps you are looking for experts to rebuild that recent import project out of Europe or the ‘States?
