Saturday 18th Jun, 11am -3pm. RSVP required by Thursday 16th June

Maragret Dymond will be personally opening the Lane 88 Auto Museum at Wantirna

A little about the collection
Lane 88 Auto Museum is a small private collection of vehicles owned by John “JD” and Margaret Dymond, the collection has been accumulated over many years and was initially inspired by JD’s own mechanical interest and love of classic cars and historic motor racing.

At the eager age of 16, John joined Vauxhall Motors in Luton UK serving a 7-year apprenticeship ultimately becoming a skilled draughtsman, specialising in the design of Vauxhall gearboxes. During his time at Vauxhall, John also obtained a Mechanical Engineering Degree at night school to better familiarise himself on the inner workings of things.

While working at Vauxhall JD met a young lady riding a vespa scooter, Margaret also lived locally and had several family members working at the Vauxhall plant. The couple shared a love for motoring and weekend getaways later relocating to Melbourne in March 1958, where JD took up a position with BP Australia, in the Technical Department.

Upon arrival in Australia and purchasing the odd toy car and bike he could tinker on, JD was involved in the launch of the BP long-life fuel range and numerous car rallies and events across the country. Later he would leave BP to take on a role at an additive supplier company.

In 1979, JD’s passions of classic cars and mechanical improvement would collide when he and Margaret took the opportunity to the purchase Penrite Oil Company. John’s 20 years’ experience in, not only the oil industry, but also the additive market gave him the background and knowledge he needed to take up the challenge of his own company along with the nine children he and Margaret would welcome into their lives.

During the years the Dymond family grew the Penrite business into the market leader it is today, often the kids spending weekends selling oil at the track or helping JD and Margaret at various product club talks or car club more often than not dragging JD away from an old car bookstores.

JD and Margaret bought many cars over the years but always had a soft spot for Vauxhalls and European touring cars, as such the collection features cars from Mercedes Benz, BMW, Bugatti, Riley alongside several historic racing cars. Though we are lucky to have several short-term loaned vehicles to compliment the collection.

Although JD is no longer with us, Margaret and the family still enjoy and actively participate in motoring events across Australia and NZ.

JD’s wishes that “old cars need to be driven” is a directive of the museum and you will often see these vehicles gracing the open roads, appearing at car show or on track.
