Ramp up security with a better door opener

9 March, 2022

Your classic car is precious, and not just to you, so it will pay to keep it secure. Dominator garage door openers provide sophisticated electronic security for single and double sized doors.

All Dominator openers come with Tri-tran 128 technology for enhanced reliability and security. And Dominator’s optional Smart Phone Control Kit gives you full remote control of your door via your smart phone wherever you are in the world. The app also gives you real-time alerts, 24/7 monitoring and activity logs.

Dominator openers feature advanced security against code grabbing devices, an excellent operating range and suffer no interference from other wireless devices such as baby monitors and door bells. Handily, they also have four remote buttons so that you can operate multiple doors or gates, even at different locations — the home and bach, for example.

Saltwater Creek Garage

After passing by this building for many years, I decided to call in and ask the owner about his garage and the car that had been parked there. It was a 1982 Hyundai Pony 1200 TLS that he’d inherited from his mother who had bought it when it was nearly new. I was fortunate enough to buy it from him — many had approached him over the years but were turned away. After sitting out there for that long you could not imagine how dirty it was. At least it had never been wet in all that time. The interior is a mid-blue and almost like new — in fact his mother, Irene, had still retained the original factory-fitted thick clear-plastic cover over the mid-blue vinyl door panels.

Lunch with … Roger Bailey

Roger’s story is a classic illustration of what hard work, honesty to the point of brutal frankness, a ‘can-do’ approach, and a racer’s brain can get you in this sport of car racing. Roger, or ‘Boost’ as he’s known up and down the pitlanes of America, was who Kenny Smith turned to when he was dragging a reluctant teenager around the different pit garages at Laguna Seca.
“Scott [Dixon] kept complaining that it was too hot and he just wanted to go back to the hotel pool. I had to tell him that I was trying to secure his future — we weren’t getting much of a look in until we saw Roger who knew everyone and set about introducing Scott as New Zealand’s next big thing.
