Tui Brewery, American Car Day, 2019...(2).

'69 Plymouth Satellite with 318.
I've always liked this Mopar body.

1970 Chevy Camaro.
I prefer these steel wheels with trims over the more commonly fitted mags.


2012 Chevy Camaro convertible and...

...a similar product from Ford's stable, but this one only 2 months old.

'84 GMC Sierra pick-up.

1979 Cadillac Sedan De Ville.


'79 Oldsmobile Royale sedan...
....is a diesel.

'57 Ford Fairlane 2 door looks smart with whitewalls.

2015 Camaro in a splendid deep green.

These two Camaros are almost twins. Side stripes and different paint treatment on grilles , tells them apart.
LH is from 2010, RH 2012.

'63 Ford Fairlane were reasonably common in New Zealand, but not in 2 door form.
Nice to see these less usual imports.

C5 and C3 Corvettes.
The C3s from the late 60s to mid 70s era, are my favourites


The big, bold and heavy look of a 1955 Buick Century.

Another appealing Mopar hardtop.
1966 Dodge Coronet.

The Mustangs with this body style were never as popular as other models when new, but they have become more collectable as their rarity increases. This is a 1982, 302 cid.
Two typical American pick-ups.
A modified Chevy from '72 and a fairly much standard Dodge from '89.
Chevy Impala sedans from '63 and '64.

Everytime I see this De Soto coupe, I have to take a photo of it.
It just looks so right.

A couple of Chevy pick-ups.
An '82 car based El Camino and the larger '74 C10.


Tui Brewery, American Car Day 2019...(1).

The last Sunday in each month is a vehicle day at Tui Brewery, Mangatainoka. 26th April was American Car Day.
This one was actually outside the event.
I can't actually recall having seen many of these in two door form.
It's a Plymouth and was New Zealand new in January 1935.

Another Plymouth. This time a Fury from 1966, which came to New Zealand in 2008.

Corvette has fancy little Chevy bow-ties in the exhaust outlets.

Brightly painted Chevy pick-up has seen a few mods.

350 cubes 0f 1972 Pontiac Firebird.

''66 Mustang hass 289 V8 power.

Very original '65 Mustang has original wheel trims and 170cid 6 cylinder.
1948 Ford Coupe in what appears to be a period colour.


'68 Mustang 289.

Ford mixing with GM.
'71 Falcon is a 351.
'68 Camaro is a 454.

1961 Mercury Meteor and...

...a '63 Mercury Marauder.

1972 Lincoln Continental is BIG...

...whichever way you look at it.

A couple of traditional hotrods.

'66 Ford Galaxie convertible was one of my favourites.

'66 Lincoln is another big car...

...with a spacious interior.

Challenger, Camaro, Challenger.
I always think the styling of this GM and this MOPAR are very similar.

327 powered '64 Chevy Impala has the right look.

Three late model Camaros.

River City Park Up...British Cars...(2).

Sparkling Jaguars.
Racing Mk 2 and Dempsey and Forrests (funeral directors) Mk 5.

Dempsey & Forrest's hearses.

1725cc Singer Vogue from Rootes Group was the last of this model before the more modern Arrow body (Hillman Hunter) models which were also called Vogue.

A fabulous Jaguar E Type and Buick behind.

1957 Morgan 4/4.

Mk 3 Ford Zephyr rear ends.

Well the body looks vaguely familiar...
