Here are some photos from the rally.
|1948 PC2 Bedford|
|1957 EBP Ute which I think was an Australian only model, with a 1954 EIP Velox behind.|
|1958 F Victor.|
|This 1958 PAD Cresta came from the West Coast of the South Island and was superb. It even had original type cross-ply tyres.|
|The rear view of the same PAD.|
|The modernisation of the later models in the PA range didn't quite come off. Although the one-piece rear screen looks more modern, I feel the rear lamp treatment looks too much of an "add-on".|
This is a 1962 PAX.
|Standard model 1964 HA Viva, with a 1966 HA SL90 behind. SL90s were not a common model in NZ, but the standard HAs sold in quite significant numbers.|
|FD Victors were a popular model in this country, particularly in 3300, 6 cylinder form. This one is a 2 litre 1972 model.|
|Firenzas are very rare here and this 1972 version is believed to be the only 2.3 automatic transmission model in the country.|
|This is a 1993 Calibra. Although a few of these were imported they were mostly Opel badged versions.|
|Just to remind you that the All Blacks won the Rugby World Cup I have include this photo of some round hay bales arranged by a farmer in a field abou 20 minutes from here.|
