Greetings from The Cadillac La Salle Club of New Zealand (Inc.)

Hello everyone. To all Kiwis – our October issue heralds the arrive of our annual Day Light Saving – another hour's light in the evening and more time for cruising – Covid permitting! Even here in NZ we have endured a Delta outbreak over the last five weeks. At sending this to you, we have had over 1100 infections but currently less than 300 now remain active. 99% of the infections have occurred in Auckland which has endured the most strongest of Lockdowns, whilst where I live, we are in Alert Level 2, the second lowest and with luck we will reduce to Level One (almost 'normal life!') in a few weeks-time. There has been one fatality this time around. NZ's strategy is full elimination. Whether this is possible, we are unsure – the world is watching us!

To our Global readers via the US CLC website in Melbourne, Australia our best wishes are with you as you cope with the aftermath of an unexpected (and unusual) earthquake today. The pictures on TV reminded me of our Christchurch quakes. To our friends in the US and UK, we hope you do not encounter more severe Lockdowns and issues as we observe more waves of Covid are taking place. In the US, fires, floods and tropical cyclones are creating challenging times from coast to coast.

In this month's issue:

•   A cool Deco-era V12 to observe
•   Final 'wash-up' of my recent NZ Membership 'ring-around'
•   Tom Sharplin – Kiwi Rock 'n Roller and his Cadillac connection
•   Who is the FOMC?
•   The 2021 Cadillac Nationals are still 'Go' for those Kiwis in Level 2!

•   The Grand National Virtual Car Show and how you can vote and view
•   Brendan Osment's old '66 re-born and transformed...
•   Panelbeater wanted for Eldo restoration – do you know of someone?
•   And don't forget your Membership & Snail Mail Mag Subs are due. Have you paid yours?
•   And as always, plenty of colour
•   Attachments also included for your reading

As always, I am on the hunt' for stories and photos together with a few words, email it to me at finzmagazineemail addresses not permitted If it is a particularly 'large MB shot' it has a greater chance of appearing on the front cover especially if it has character or a bit of flair

Until next issue, stay Covid-safe out there
