Ford Lotus Cortina - Fifth Gear Legends by Classic Cortina Car Club New Zealand
The Classic Cortina Car Club http://www.classiccortina.co.nz started in the
mid 1980's with a small group of Ford Cortina enthusiasts in Christchurch.
The Club wanted to promote, Lotus, 1600E, GT, GTE in the MK1 and MK2 only
as they were seen as the more desirable car to collect.
As time went on and the Classic Cortina Car Club name became a regular
feature at the car shows in Canterbury and other places around the country.
The membership slowly grew in numbers and the Club eventually included MK3,
MK4 and MK5 models.
Now it is 2012 and there has been a small band of Club members, who over
the years have steered the Classic Cortina Club into the role of helping
members and non-members with their restoration projects, the sale of their
Cortina, or just a friendly chat about a particular model they may have
owned in the past.
Club members meet on the first Tuesday of every month and non-members are
welcome to visit. we endeavor to keep the Event Calendar up to date on all
upcoming club events and shows, grass gymkhanas and barbeques that happen
through out the year, any excuse to take your Cortina out for a drive seems
to appeal to most members.
Please feel free to Contact Us directly or any of the Committee for further
