|The 1962 Skoda Felicia is one of three still running in New Zealand. They had a 1100cc engine and were based on the more common Octavia 2 door sedan.|
|There never seems to be any shortage of nicely restored Ford Model As at vintage car rallies in NZ.|
|Alvis produced this TC100 model in 1955.|
It was quite a performance sedan for its day with its 3 litre overhead cam six cylinder power plant.
|Hillman Minxes were a common everyday car in the fifties when I was a junior petrol-head.|
This example dates from 1947.
|This BSA 650 Lightning was not part of the rally, but ridden there by an attending spectator.|
|1953 Chev Bel-Airs were reasonably common in NZ, but not in two door form and obviously not with LHD.|
|The star of the rally had to be this 1931 Hispano-Suiza J-12. An immense limousine with huge die-cast bumpers and an impressive V12 under the bonnet. Its rarity would probably put its value somewhere in the priceless category.|
|Whitewall tyres and a sensible amount of chrome make this 1935 Ford an attractive sedan without the over the top flamboyance of later American cars.|
|This 1929 Chrysler 65 has been fitted with a period accessory. |
A central driving light which "steers" with the front wheels.
|The area above the windscreen and the dashboard in this vehicle have been covered with badges from attended rallies.|
|Nicely restored 1958 Bedford D6LC3.|
|The R series from John Deere was JD's first diesel, produced from 1949.|
This is a 1952 example with its horizontal twin having a bore of 5.75 inches and an 8 inch stroke.
By my calculations that makes about 3.4 litres for each cylinder.
