Over 300 uncommon cars and their owners gathered in the grounds of Southwards yesterday morning. The ages of the cars (and some pickups) ranged from 1ate 1930s to very recent. With all the big block V8s on display, James Shaw would have been hysterical (it might have done him some good). We even noticed a V12. The amount of time and money that has been spent on some was obvious.

We thought this Plymouth Road Runner Superbird would be perfect for the boss of the NZTA (or Waka Kotahi) — the ideal colour too: it matches the many thousands of cones this agency deposits over the country’s main roads and leaves them there for long periods.
This fancy gold top scheme, the gold dollar sign on the rearview mirror and the gold steering wheel would be perfect for Mr T. Power of the KCDC.
