3 DO WE WANT TO USE IT OR LOSE IT? Please read the letter below and if you d like to join a MAPS group visiting this worthwhile display, let the Editor, Mike Osborne, or Secretary, Erica Andrews know. We have some interest already, so please consider joining the proposed trip in the coming months.. Better still perhaps we, along with other historic vehicle clubs could make donations in order to keep the museum open? "Ladies and Gentlemen, The National Military Vehicle Museum / Military Vehicle Preservation Society is a Museum / Society dedicated to the restoration and preservation of Australia and in particular South Australia's military history. The Society has been in existence since the 1970s and the museum since the 1990's Regarding the museum, we currently rent the site ( 6 acres at 10 Sturton Road Edinburgh Parks in historic Heritage Listed Buildings which was a TNT explosives manufacture site during WW2 ). The Landlord, Goodman is selling the site and we are in the final stages of purchasing the site, with settlement end May 16. We have raised close to $50,000 through membership and have secured a loan for $200,000. We have paid a deposit, also can meet GST and have possible exemption from Stamp Duty as a not for profit organisation. However we still have a shortfall of approx. $55,000. Local Salisbury Council, SA Government, Federal Government, State RSL and others have been contacted for request of donation however nothing to date on the positive. What we are requesting from fellow Clubs, associates, members, and Committees is financial or other support in our plight to purchase the site. If our sale falls through, we 3 do not have the capacity to move, and know the museum / society collection will be broken up and sold interstate and overseas, being a great loss to the state. We are all facing hard times, both within our clubs and some of us personally, however any donation would be gratefully accepted, and of course, end of Financial Year so every dollar over $2 is Tax Deductible. Another option is organising a club run, with our entry fees at $8 each, we can also put on a BBQ for a small additional fee. If you would like to donate, ITS EASY, visit our website on the page there is a simple "click to donate" button. Tax deductible receipt will also be issued. Please help the museum, and more importantly the military history of South Australia. Kind regards Russell Vine Secretary / Public Officer National Military Vehicle Museum PO Box 174 SALISBURY SA 5108"

This building has never been open to the public before in its former life the Urlwins ran the property as one of the state s largest poultry breeding farms and the feed mixing equipment is all still there, still hooked up to 3phase power and still works! The building also contains Mr. Urlwin s original workshop ( ) which we are displaying as he had it, using quite a lot of his tools etc. The stone walled section of the building is over 100 years old. Now that we have finally got council approval (only took 5 months!!), we are also planning to have another special day (hopefully on September 11th) to open our new visitor centre at Urlwin Park a memorial to Joan Zacher (who left us a huge bequest), it will replace our humble little tea room; building is due to start about June 1st, after the history festival event is over.

9 AROUND THE HOUSES MIKE & GWEN MUMFORD s HOME, MAY 22ND A really remarkable MAPS Around the Houses trip to the Brentwood home of Mike and Gwen Mumford. OK, so the weather forecast was not that good, but we were promised shelter and few homes would have as much sheltered space as the Mumford's property. The drizzle joined the wind as we met up at the Harry Butler Memorial at Minlaton, from where our hardy party set off to Brentwood to be joined by others from the SYP area. I estimate that nearly forty people and three dogs attended. Few of us would have envisaged the size and scope of Mike and Gwen s collection. How come all the exhibits were so clean Mike told me the building had received the Gwen touch in recent days. So many items had family history attached to them. Even the old Furness caravan from Murray Bridge turned out to have once been the property of a relative.at Murray Bridge ( MAPS member Bob Haywood came up with that find.) Mike hopes to get the 1957 Ford Zephyr all fixed up to tow the van, painted in matching colours. Talking of towing, a collection of family photos included one of the Mumford family Ford towing a house, on its way from Myponga to Murray Bridge! The 1974 Honda 70 once used as daily transport by Gwen had a much easier time of things. Mike and Gwen were able to give us a great deal of background on the items in their collection as well as an insight to their lives in several areas of South Australia. During the time many of us were admiring the various items from dolls to tools, the MAPS cooking team was in action. The Clerke 9 BBQ trailer was all set up and the cooking set into action. Many thanks to Trevor, Lyn, Nola, Graham and Margaret for setting up a wide and well cooked range of meats. Good to see Wayne Mundy there with the Toyota Crown. Hopefully Wayne will have his licence back soon after his problems, not just the medical ones, but the bureaucratic ones! Richard & Barbara Duns, plus Rani the dog, had a day off in the Merc 300D. That s going even better now that Richard can stop the engine from within the car, instead of having to operate the diesel stop under the bonnet.. I think the joint expedition with Jim Davies to get a parts source has worked out well. Trevor and Graham thanked Mike and Gwen for their generous hospitality and presented a MAPS mug as a token of appreciation. The wet weather eased and we had a pleasant drive home in the Triumph Stag. Another good MAPS day out. If you weren t there, you missed out. Mike, Mary & Maisie MORE PICTURES OVER THE PAGE
10 10 MUMFORD PICTURES TODAY ABOVE Gwen back on her Honda 70 which has done just 1800 miles. It was later replaced by a Honda Civic car but Mike sold that, much to Gwen s displeasure! BELOW Bringing back memories of his youth, Mike has the 1957 Ford Zephyr, all lined up to town the Furness caravan. Just a little bit of work needed Mike.
11 ROUND THE HOUSES, SUNDAY, 22ND MAY Some pictures of pictures 11
12 12 BRITISH CLASSIC TOUR, MAY 1ST 2016 VICTOR HARBOR There are many ways of assessing how good a club is as regards various areas events, newsletter and welcome by members to name just three. I have to say that I d give 10 out of 10 to the HMVC for all three of these areas, as an event such as the British Classic Tour alone highlights the organisation and work by their members to put on an event for those far and wide. It has grown from a relatively small affair based on their clubrooms to a town centered show now attracting up to 300 cars. This could not have happened with great team work with the local council and support from sponsors such as Penrite and Rainsford Classic Cars. The cost to enter? Just $15 for a couple in a vehicle and that includes large serves of scones, jam and cream! With weather forecast we were not sure as to which car to take, but opted for the TR4A, but with the tin lid on! Me, Mary and Maisie in the car is a bit of squeeze, but just enough room, on the basis that we d buy food out. We headed off mid Saturday morning, taking the scenic route via Mallala, Hahndorf, Meadows and Willunga a great drive through the last of the Autumn leaves. We rent a dog friendly house on the outskirts of Victor Harbor and after a walk on the beach settled down for a quiet night. For Sunday, it was an early start with breakfast in the Ocean St Bakery. Even at that time, there was a lot of activity as the HMVC volunteers were directing entrants and setting up all the gear needed to make things happen. We collected our vouchers for scones and jam, plus a route guide and some goodies from Penrite. There was time to look at the other cars as they came to the foreshore car park before being let loose on the run at 11AM, flagged off by a kilted man whose legs must have been colder than mine! The various British marques were assembled in groups with large numbers of MG s, Triumphs and Jaguars. For the MG s I liked the rare 1939 WA Tourer, powered by a 2.6 litre engine. TR s of all types were abundant. Of course, a Union Jack painted Jaguar was somewhat noticeable, but would you like a rego number- SHAGUAR? As well as the more numerous makes and models, the Singer Club fielded a nice selection. Chris Howes for the Sunbeam Owners Club looked to have issued a three line whip as the Alpine line up was very strong. Our run was about 70kms, taking us on and off Hindmarsh Island. The line of cars going over the bridge made a great picture as did those parked at the Murray Mouth turning point. The we headed back to Victor and parked on the Warland Reserve, just a short walk from the shops and hotels. There we met up with Sandy and Alan Martin of the CRCSA to see the 1954 Bentley Mark 6 saloon they recently acquired one of the best examples I reckon. Getting a look at the food from the Victor Hotel I headed off to get a Club Sandwich - enough for three I discovered. A fly past of two DH Tiger Moths put the icing on the day s cake. There were some awards, but I did not record them all. However, I was pleased to see an excellent Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire be named as the best saloon. Too often prizes go to over restored over chromed vehicles but that s only my view! We then headed off to Goolwa to see some friends who have just retired there and who look to be very happy. Next day, we had another bakery breakfast and then went to see Kip and Lyn Newbold at their hillside home overlooking Encounter Bay. This was a real treat with plenty to look at and to talk about. As they previously lived in the YP. Many MAPS members will remember them. Then, finally, head for home, with the TR4A going well as always. Thanks for another great weekend of classic motoring to all those involved. Mike O

Thank you to all those who have co-operated with the officers dealing with a demanding task which has to be done efficiently.

Just called tonight ( Sunday 22nd) and Don is going on OK at home, but Shirley must love hospital food, as she went back in on Saturday. Mike O JOKE TIME A school teacher asked her students to make a sentence containing the expression, "I presume.". One little girl held up her hand and said: "Yesterday, my mother hand washed the dinner dishes, and I presumed that the dishwasher was broken." "Very good," said the teacher. Another one said: "This morning, my father drove the Volkswagen out of the garage. I presume that the BMW wouldn't start." "That's excellent," says the teacher. Little Johnny, at the back of the classroom, gets up and says: "Yesterday, I saw grandpa leave the house with a newspaper under his arm and headed for the bush. I presume that... The teacher interrupted him and said, "I stopped you because you have no idea what your grandfather was going to do, so you can't presume anything. Johnny says, "Please, Teacher, let me finish my sentence." The teacher says, "Very well. Continue." "As I was saying, I saw my grandpa heading for the bush with a newspaper under his arm. I presume he was going for a s**t because he can't read." The Teacher is still undergoing counselling.

16 HAPPY CARAVANNING- MARY OSBORNE LIVING THE GOOD LIFE AT MORGAN! 16
17 17 MORGAN LIVING RIVER FESTIVAL, 14-15TH MAY A great weekend trip in which to give the Dodge Kingsway its first outing after the extensive renovations in recent months. As the car was only finished on Thursday and our departure day was the next day, Friday 13th, I ll admit to having my fingers crossed. All went well, there and back, so well done and thank you to Richard Duns and the Ardrossan Auto Centre team. Good run to Morgan, via Auburn, Saddleworth and Eudunda. We booked in at the Morgan Riverside CP, but some others opted to camp on the riverside show area. Good spot, but a walk up the hill for the loo. A large selection of vintage and classic vans joined with a vast array of water craft. This ranged from a paddle steamer to small dinghies and canoes. Food and refreshment was an important part of the weekend. We enjoyed our meals at the Morgan Roadhouse, the local hotel and the takeaway café! However, the actual show had wide range of food and drink to savor. I enjoyed the Summer Ale beer and Mary liked the Sangria. Lots of stalls to look at and we would certainly go again. The caravan display was under the banner of Vintage & Classic Caravanners of SA. Members include Thomas Johansson, John & Chris Hunter from the Murray Mallee Auto Club. Thanks to them for all the work in putting on the display. Our 3.5 metre van looked pretty good, given the short time we have had her. Leonie Kavanagh loaned us a few things which matched the era of the van and our recently acquired electric jug was made complete with a power lead from Roger Wood. Pictures illustrate the Mays teardrop and Hawker s ute, the 1950 Dodge and 1968 Ferris van, Bob & Ellen Haywood s Chrysler Royal & Adventurer van, the Fargo Highway Palace of Dick & Judy Hart Mike O
18 18 Of course carrots are good for you! Have you ever seen a rabbit wearing spectacles? How about thats for an article headline? Read on to find out more. The Gawler Club recently held a Saturday event which was certainly full of things to look at. The day started with morning tea at Virginia Nursery and then headed down towards the caravan park area, near the beginning of the Northern Expressway. Adjacent to a 200 acre carrot farm owned by the Bergamin family, there s small airfield Calvin Grove. Along side this is a government facility which houses equipment to deal with oil spills in the Adelaide marine area. Also in the area is a highly specialised propeller manufacturing unit, with state of the art CNC machines. We were able to see some processes being carried out, plus a test of propeller, mounted onto a hefty V 8 engine rig. In the next hangar there was an ultra light aircraft which had been designed to fly the Gulf St. Vincent. OK, so it never made that trip, but it was airborne 100 years to the minute in 2016 for centenary of the Wright Brothers first flight. What a great series of tales we were treated to! Then we went onto the carrot farm to see the crop and to hear about how they are grown and irrigated. Did you know, that a carrot grower gets just 20 cents a kilogram? That was where we heard the comment about rabbits in spectacles. Heading back to the house, we could see a plume of black smoke rising near where our BBQ lunch was due to be served. There was a sigh of relief when it was clear that it was not from the newly commissioned luxury BBQ trailer. What a machine has been be put together as a club facility! Just as well as twice the number of people turned up for the day than expected. Food was a sell out, with over 90 members present. The story does not end there. Before we left the airfield, there was a group of people three men and one lady who rather looked out of place. The lady would have been at home in a Spanish airport, as she was a flamenco dancer and after our BBQ lunch, she performed number of dances. I bet that s a first at a car club event. Mike O
19 19 ARE YOU REGULAR THESE DAYS? A suggestion from Tony Morgan, Secretary of Modern Regularity Events has invited MAPS members to a Run to Mallala on the 16th October for one of their events. The Austin 7 Club runs Regularity at Mallala and has invited us to go and have a look at the Regularity event plus go-karts are on the same day. Regularity is where the driver nominates time to get around the track and must be as close as possible to the nominated time, otherwise they are penalised. The speeds are just as great as racing but no competition is undertaken between drivers only with their own skills and judgement. Message from Alistair McAllister Wonder what happened to the complete V16 chassis that lived on a pig farm at Waterloo Corner back in the 1960's?
