Ram Rodder's Show 'n' Shine 2019 (GM).

The big blunt front of an '84 GMC Sierra.

1938 Chevy Sedan Delivery is much modified.

Well presented '69 Chevrolet Caprice 427.

Two '63 GMs.

'39 Chevy Coupe belongs to the Ram Rodder's President.

And another.

One of Holden's most popular models, the EH.

'56 Cadillac is huge for a 2 door car and...

...'59 Cadillac is "huger"!
2016 Corvette looks more European than American.

Big Cadillac sedans can look quite ominous in black, but to me a white one looks just right.

Original '69 Holden 186.

'94 Chevy C1500 has a multitude of headlamps.

Not many 1960 Corvettes around.

Chevy Nova doesn't have the stylish lines of most other GM models.

1957  Chevy Two Ten Townsman is a rarity.


'56 Chevy has a glittering paint job.

Ram Rodder's Show 'n' Shine 2019 (Ford)

Fathers' Day (1st september) was time again for the Wairarapa's Ram Rodder's annual show 'n' shine.
'46 Ford V8 Coupe.

1965 Ford Mustang convertible.

'47 Ford Coupe and...

...another Ford Coupe from 10 years earlier.

My favourite Falcon body style. Not sure if this is a genuine GTHO or replica.

'68 Mustang 220 ci 6 cylinder.

Another Mustang convertible, this time a later model.

Single spinner Ford sedan from 1950.

Galaxie and Thunderbird

Very nice little Ford "Pop", but I'm not sure what powers it.

Big red Roush Mustang.

'67 Mercury Monterey 390.

I like the American pick ups of this era.
1964 Ford F100.

'36 Ford is just how I like a hot rod.
Standard appearance with lowering and fat tyres.

Probably my favourite American car in NZ.
1966 Ford Country Squire.

Stock standard '65 Mustang with the 170 cubic inch, six.

Very clean '59 Fairlane 292 cid.

Ford never made at ute of the Zephyr Mk 3, but this one is a superb conversion.

Tui Brewery Holden Vs Ford 2019 (6).

1963 Fairlane is cool as a two door.

'84 Fairmont rolls out with big gold wheels.

Ford Cortina Mk 4 estates were once plentiful on our roads and were often the choice of sales reps.
This is a 1981 model.

'72 HQ Holden has a rego plate that suggests something special.....

....a look under the bonnet confirms my suspicions.

'79 Falcon V8.

2016 Holden Commodore VF 2 SSV Redline.
6.2 litre a 6 speed auto and I love the colour.

Not my favourite model of Mustang, but still a lot nicer than the Fox body models.

It's surprising how many Toranas are around.
They all come out of the woodwork at an event like this. 

All painted up and ready to race.

Ford got it right when they styled the F100 of this era.

Squat Chevy outside the event....

...and a Bonneville.

Tui Brewery Holden Vs Ford 2019, (5).

I just love this Mk2 Zephyr Police car.

Mk1 Zephyr is also a beauty.

'66 Ford Galaxie looks good on these wheels.

'71 Falcon XY.
I like this body style of Falcon, but I do like the grille design of the XW better.

Holden under the tower.
Just to show no bias.
Ford under the tower.

C3 Corvettes are my favourite...


....especially on the standard steel wheels.

2006 Falcon XR8 makes its departure.

Nice C5 Corvette, but somehow they just don't do it for me.
