I saw that the local classic car club was having an afternoon get-together this weekend. We're not members but as it was open to the public, it was a good opportunity to take the MG along. Ownership was predominantly classic American, with a smaller number of classics from other countries. It never ceases to amaze me just how many classic cars are owned in NZ considering a population of around 5 million. The other amazing thing is the extremely high standard of restoration considering that most of them would be a huge money pit!
Here are some photos of the cars that caught my eye:
The early 60's white Ford Thunderbird was just so representative of that era. The interior looked like a cross between an American diner and a showy jukebox with all the chrome trim. It wasn't to my taste but could still appreciate the kitsch styling as a statement of those times. Metallic sky blue vinyl seats!
