American Cars at Tui HQ.

On the last Sunday of each month, Tui Breweries is running a vehicle related show at their brewery at Mangatainoka. There is a small fee for displaying your vehicle (which goes to a worthwhile cause), but it is free to viewing for spectators. Last Sunday was dedicated to American cars.
Ford Mustangs from 2009 and 2007 respectively, look good in bright colours.

1951 Ford Business Coupe is just lovely.

383 cubic inches for this 1965 Plymouth Fury.

1965 Ford Fairlane. I remember a friend's father having one of these, many years ago.

1964 Cadillac De Ville hearse would be fitting way to take ones last ride.

2016 Mustang, 5 litre automatic.

I first saw this 1935 De Soto when its owner had just got it on the road at Shannon car show earlier this year and it impresses just as much now , as it did then. Great choice of paint for a car of this era.

Fox body Mustang with Indianapolis pace car livery from 1979.

1969 Plymouth Roadrunner and....

...the equivalent model in Dodge clothing, a 1970 Super Bee.
Smartly presented '39 Chevy coupe.

While that front looks very much like an Australian Falcon, the two doors and left hand drive, makes it quite unique in New Zealand.

The long and sharp edged 1959 Chrysler New Yorker Saratoga is in stark contrast to the tall and rounded '39 Plymouth. 

Chevy pick up from 1940.

OK they're not Americans, but these two Mk 3 Zephyrs were in attendance.

'67 Dodge Coronet.

'69 Mustang. Mustangs from around this year are my personal favourites.

'65 Chevrolet Impala hardtop coupe, is an imposing beast in gloss black.

Early Camros, like this standard '67 model, are not that common now.

I'm not really a fan of lowered/modified cars, but you have to like this F100 from 1956.

'78 Chrysler New Yorker needs some work, but will be an imposing machine when completed.

Buick and a couple of Fords.

More Fords. '57 Fairlane, nearest the camera and a coupe that is 21 years its senior.

The angular lines of a C4 Corvette.

Original '54 Chevy sedan.

My favourite of the Tri-Chevys, a '56 in Bel Air attire.

'38 Chevrolet Master sedan.

C3 Corvette from 1979 with 350 cubic inches of power..
Another C3, this time a '76, also a 350.

2011 Camaro has spectacular paint.

Superb '77 Pontiac Trans Am.

'63 C10 wellside looks fairly original.

Many extras on this '64 Chevy

'69 Caprice suits this colour.

Not my favourite style of Mustang, but yellow suits this one.
Tui's own Holden Ute was there.
