This is the official blurb to go with the poster

The Constructors Car Club 25th Anniversary DIY Car Show

The Constructors Car Club Incorporated is celebrating its 25th
anniversary in 2013 with an indoor car show to be held at the NZ Kennel
Club premises in Porirua over the weekend of 12-13 October 2013.

The club was founded in 1988 by a small number of enthusiasts who were
interested in building a vehicle either from scratch or from a kit, but
were concerned by the rumours of impending legislation and the impact it
may have on their hobby. The club they formed went on to become one of
the 10 founding clubs of the Low Volume Vehicle Technical Association
(LVVTA), the body entrusted with New Zealand's modified and custom built
vehicle certification system.

25 years on and the Wellington based club has over 160 members, with
approximately 40% scattered throughout New Zealand. Technical expertise
remains a strength of the club with much of the communal knowledge being
captured and passed on via the production of 11 editions of the club
magazine 'Spare Parts' every year.
The aim of the show is to celebrate what we do as a club, and to provide
the public with a unique opportunity to view a broad selection of the
vehicles that are the embodiment of 'The Alternative Drive Style'.

To this end Patrick Harlow's comprehensive guide to NZ low volume
vehicles, currently entitled 'New Zealand Manufactured Cars 'A Cottage
Industry" is due for release Father's Day (1 September 2013). The book
covers over 50 years of small volume NZ car production and of the 90 or
so different vehicles covered in the book, it is anticipated that 70% of
the featured models will be on display, with over 60% of those cars
actually belonging to current or former members of the CCC.

It is anticipated that we will be able to showcase over 100 home-built
vehicles, sports/racing cars, kit cars and special interest cars under
one roof, and in so doing will have the largest show of its kind ever
staged in New Zealand. The show will be open to the public from
9:00-5:00 daily. Previous shows held by the Club in 2001 and 2005
attracted several thousand visitors each, and we are hoping to equal or
better that in 2013. There will be a modest admission charge of $5 per
person to attend the show, with profits being donated to the Wellington
Free Ambulance.

One thing that separates this show from other car shows is that it won't
just be for gleaming, completed cars. Some of the most interesting
vehicles on display will still be under construction or scarred and worn
from years of being used and enjoyed. There will also be displays of
some of the more common engines, gearboxes and other key components that
are frequently used in projects.

One thing is for certain, the Constructors Car Club 25th Anniversary DIY
Car Show will be a unique celebration of New Zealand's motoring history.
