John bitten by the vintage car bug as a teen

JOHN Wolff can still remember when he first realised his love of cars.

Mr Wolff, who was one of 150 people visitors in Warwick from the Vintage and Veteran Chevrolet Automobile Association to board a steam train to Clifton, said it began in his late teens.

"I was probably 19 and my dad went to an auction," Mr Wolff said.

"They opened the doors up on a garage and there was a 1927 Erskine, which they said he could have for five pounds.

"He came home and told me about it, drew a mud map and said if you want it, bring it home and if you don't want it. leave it there.

"I went and had a look, I bought it and I've been hooked ever since."

Mr Wolff, said his 1929 Chevrolet International Series was now his pride and joy.

"We put it on the road in 1997 after four years of restoration work," he said.

"We bought it for $60 and picked it up from Taroom."

Mr Wolff said his favourite part about his car was the ride and the style.

"The ride is a bit more compact than modern cars," Mr Wolff said.
