Description Dear Reader, Enthusiast, Supporter, As a kid in the early 1960's I was taken to the then 'Templeton Speedway' by my Dad and was every Saturday night treated to the indomitable tussles between two of the top Christchurch Speedcars of the day, car #60 of Eddie Murray's and car #12 of Trevor Hall's. These were halcyon days of NZ and Christchurch Speedway and the emerging aftermarket speed and performance 'bolt on' accessories and mod's, the #60 car originally sporting a Raymond Mays crossflow headed Zephyr engine and the #12 car a very revolutionary Repco Hi Power Crossflow headed Holden engine with a homebuilt fuel injection system. For nigh on 10 years I watched the various stages of these cars development and eventual relegation to the backs of peoples garages, I was offerred #60 just before I got married in 1984 by a Mt Cook Airlines Pilot for a meagre NZ$5000 but I wasn't allowed it!, I was also offered the remains of another Repco Holden by an old Speedway identity Ted Robinson but did not grab it! Recently, just before my Dad passed away, we went shares in a number of projects and on making enquiries about something entirely different, we stumbled on the remains and partial restoration project undertaken by a few other well known Christchurch Speedway identities and we had learned the lesson of the past and grabbed the opportunity with open arms and had the incredible opportunity to become the owners of the very car we had both sat for Saturday night after Saturday night watching almost 50 years ago, NZ#12. It had been totally stripped and dismantled for a restoration that it is now well overdue for and it has languished far too long..., it is well nigh time to restore this beauty to her former glory and have her 'spik and span' and put on display for the people of Post Earthquake Christchurch and the rest of NZ, Australia and all other visitors that take an interest to enjoy. It is envisaged to have it as a display at our Canterbury Museum and any other venues and shows, galleries or Malls around the City of Christchurch, New Zealand that will welcome her. Please help NZ#12 'breathe' again! See: Or: Purchase one of my Speedway Projects For Sale. Thank you. Yours faithfully, Number 12 Trust.
