Anniversary Rally for the 404. In 2010 Sven Slager and Tony Haycock organised a highly successful 50th anniversary run for owners of the 404, with about 20 cars participating in a run from Picton to Akaroa near Christchurch. Sven now advises he is looking towards a 60th anniversary run in 2020 and hopes he can attract an equally impressive entry of 404s with a run circulating the central North Island. A suggested Tour de la Nouvelle-Zélandé is the loop – New Plymouth-Taumarunui- Cambridge- Taupo- Napier-Masterton- Whanganui- New Plymouth, to be held possibly next March. Sven is keen to hear from fellow 404 owners on their thoughts and interest in such a run. It is thought desirable for there to be local organisers familiar with their region to input into the overall programme. Contact Sven at 027 769 5919 or email sven@slager.co.nz
