Going old school: Very Vintage Day Out 2019

21 August, 2019



It can sometimes be difficult to reconcile your hobbies with those of your partner, but the Very Vintage Day Out neatly straddles the divide with an awesome vehicle display featuring classic cars, muscle cars, and hot rods from the ’30s to the ’60s, as well as the Jack Daniels Miss Pinup New Zealand beauty pageant — united by the appreciation of all things vintage, pinup, and rockabilly.

Now in its eight year, 2019 sees a full programme of entertainment including live bands, dancers, a new Show Vehicle Display Hall for up to 90 vehicles, military displays, makeovers, as well as over 90 vendors on site selling a huge range of Vintage, Retro, Rockabilly and Pin Up products. The Friday night even has a 1940s Military-themed dance with big band Tuxedo Swing playing

If you’re keen to display your vehicle, you’ll receive free undercover parking on the day in Hall 1, free entry into the event for the driver and be in the draw for a mystery prize pack from NZV8 magazine and Jack Daniels — simply visit the Very Vintage Day Out vehicle registration page.

Tickets can be purchased online at Eventfinda for $22, or on the door at $25.

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?
