Just kidding.

1989 MX-5

25 years on.
Recently read, in Pistonheads I think :-
"Having been created to evoke the spirit of classic European roadsters, the MX-5 is now old enough to offer a vaguely historic experience itself".
Well, that's true.

Jim White

 We are very sorry to say that Jim White passed away on Tuesday after a long illness with cancer.  Jim was well know among the Bolwell community in Australia and was always a keen attendee at Easters, Club Meets and Mallala track days.  He owned an immaculate Green Nagari Sports as well as a 1994 Red NSX and had recently bought a Honda S600 which he was well on the way to restoring.  In fact Jim continued to head out to his garage and progress the S600 project even when he was quite ill.  His focus and determination along with his positive attitude was an inspiration to us all.

He had competed in the Targa in his Bolwell and was passionate about his cars, Hondas, Bolwells, Evos and previously Triumphs. A photo of the Bolly at Targa-

He will be remembered as an absolute gentleman with a brilliant mind. A tribute to his life in SA business is in today’s Advertiser-

Our thoughts are with his wife Andrea and his 3 sons.

Did you hear about the sinkhole collapse at the Corvette museum?

Oxenberry again this year.

Hi SA Bolwell owners,
Last year we had a great day at the MCLAREN VALE VINTAGE & CLASSIC Car run at Serafino’s and lunch which followed at Oxenberry Winery.  It is on again this year, Sunday 6th Apr 2014 and the great news is that Oxenberry have asked us back again for lunch and to display the cars.
Our host winery, Oxenberry which is across the road from Serafino's, will be hosting lunch and wine tasting will also be available.  We will be joined by the NSX, Holden and Ford Falcon groups.
 We will meet at Crafers Hotel, out the front at 8:45 am and drive down together via some more interesting roads.  We then join the other car groups around 1000 am at Serafino (McLarens on the Lake), Coffee, tea and breakfast will be available.  We remain at Serafino until 11:00 am to enable viewing of other clubs vehicles before proceeding in convoy around a short scenic drive of the area via the Main Street, to our winery, Oxenberry. 
 Entry for the Serafino’s run is only $20, closing on 20th March 2014 and entry forms are on -
 Please write on your entry form that you are with the Bolwell Club and are going to Oxenberry.  More details on the lunch to follow!
  If you just want to come to the winery for lunch then that’s fine as well, either way let me know and I can let Oxenberry know numbers.

This one's for Daryl.

Short notice.

For those SA members who haven't left for the meeting at the Res., and don't know about it, the pub's still closed as they haven't got the power back on after last night's storm. We'll have the meeting and dinner next Tuesday, same time same place. Can't be helped.
