From the Chairman — March 2016
It was a little late notice to editor Frank and may have delayed the Bulletin, however, it is a delight to advise members that the auction on last Saturday of the Barry Bahnisch Collection of cars and his workshop equipment was very successful.
There was aggressive bidding on some of the vehicles and the auction created some new top prices for certain cars. The only vehicle going overseas was the MGA Roadster. Unfortunately I didn’t note who purchased the veteran Rover, but I do know the veteran Humber is going to a very nice home in Mount Gambier.
The sale of his workshop equipment and a lifetime of bits and pieces were all sold on the day.
I wish to thank everyone from this Club for their support of the auction, and in particular to those who attended working bees to sort out Barry’s workshop. The methodical sorting aided the auctioneers on the day. My thanks also go to the MG Car Club members, in particular, Bob Bassika, for their assistance on the MG sorting.
Our February meeting was well presented by Club member Mike Sheehan with a comprehensive talk on High Wheelers and an item called Bib.
The February run to Hallett Cove was well attended and a short article by Stewart MacDonald, and photos from Neil, are included with this Bulletin.
Thank you everyone for participating in a very active February.
I hope to see you on either this Wednesday evening and/or the weekend Barossa run on the 18th of this month.
Happy veteran motoring. Phil Keane
