"Hi Ray, Up at Kaikoura (say: Ky Coo Ra) on a fine spring day in our F100 'Fat Cat' for the annual Kaikoura Hop, first time there for us. The pic is of my wife Christine taking a photo of the shoreline that prior to the recent massive earthquake was completely under the sea, some sections of the coast were lifted more than 24 feet by the quake! No Thunderbirds here yet but if any turn up I'll shoot you a photo or two of them.
Regards, Tom."

Here is the pic he sent me!

I'm not a 'truck guy' but I really like Scumdog's. The colo(u)rs are awesome, eh mate?

I've been in phone-contact with the Wheeler brothers down there in Dallas area. Leonard is still raving about his Kiwi trip and the hospitality Christine & Tom showed to Debbie & Leonard. Ahhh, someday... Maybe if I hit the lottery, I'll tell Robin to pack her bags, 'cause we're going to visit that beautiful Land of the Long White Cloud (and Australia). - Dave

It is really a nice truck. Tom has had it for many years now. There's a reason Fat Cat has wheelie bars!

If I did my conversion right, Tom told me he paid $9.43 per US gallon of fuel. He said that prices had spiked and they would probably blame it on the hurricanes.

"Hi Ray, Well disappointment Thunderbird-wise here at the Kaikoura Hop, this is the only Thunderbird I have seen so far! So I thought I'd throw in these other pics of cars you won't see in the US. (Aussie members of Squarebird would recognise them!) Hundreds of cars here, everything from '59 Ford retractable to '41 Willys coupe - but where are all the Thunderbirds? Regards Tom."
