“Any organisation’s effectiveness depends upon the involvement of its members.  We all have a strong interest in our individual clubs, however, real strength is in being united under the Federation’s banner.  This gives us a strong voice with government and its agencies.  Your attendance at the AGM is central to this and is appreciated”

The AGM commenced with Guest speaker Hon. Michael Wood (Minister of Transport) on various matters relating to the heritage and classic vehicle sector; that kiwis are a proud motoring society and it is embedded in our culture; provided some personal anecdotes; acknowledged the significance of the sector and individual enthusiasts; also acknowledged the role of the FoMC – our knowledge of the sector, our delegation (FoMC, VCC & NZHRA) meeting with him in 2022, subsequent meetings with Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, 12 month WoF’s & CoF’s (getting a right balance), formal options and recommendations provided by the officials to the Director of Land Transport, expected outcomes in the next few months; preservation of military vehicles and attending associated events.  The minister also presented on the “Road to Zero” safety programme, emissions reduction (incl. biofuels mandate – now delayed), and continued availability of suitable fuels for our sector.

The afternoon guest speaker was Garry Jackson, who presented his experience in the motor industry as a senior manager of Ford NZ, dealer principal of South Auckland Motors, South Africa Motor Corporation (during the Nelson Mandela years), consultant to Ford in Asia-Pacific, and consultant to establishing Ford China operations.  Garry also spent 6 years as Mayor of Hurunui district and has been the President of the Canterbury Mustang owners club for the last 6 years.  Garry took us for a 52-year journey on the motor vehicle industry, the associations, government agencies, key influencers, financial organisations, deregulation, globalisation and the media.  Garry reflected on personal perspectives; experiences and highlights with Paul Radisich – Ford partnership; “The Ford report” ads with TVNZ during the 6 O’Clock news; the Ford partnership with the All Blacks; Prime Minister David Lange goes racing (all 5 summer meetings) and designing and implementing the “Lincoln” dealership China.
