Default Tbirds at Muscle Car Madness, New Zealand

Here are some additional comments and pix that Alistair has shared, for me to post.

Street Machine and Muscle Car Madness was a four-day event with bands, drive-in movie, a rod run, buskers, a burnout competition. Model car display and scale model drag strip, food and refreshments, and a car show that attracted 1500 cars. This was the show's 20th anniversary.

The first pix was taken at an American style diner in Foxton, called '66 on 1', 1 being our State Highway that runs the length of the country.

The 2nd, 3rd & 4th pix are of the main show area at Muscle Car Madness, which is in Rangiora.

The 5th & 6th pix were taken as the show gets pretty busy.

The 7th pix was taken on Mangaweka's main street. We traveled the last leg home, roughly eight hours drive, with two AMC AMXs, a Malibu, a Plymouth Duster and a Camaro. It was fun.

The 8th pic was of the Tbird's dash and the Duster refelected in my son Brad's sunnies.

The 9th pic was of the cars lined up for the ferry that took us from Wellington at the bottom of the North Island, to Picton at the top of the South Island. It's around a three-hour crossing. Approximately 80 street machines, classics and hot rods made the crossing to attend the show.

The last pic is of a pretty red '59 convertible that Alistair got a pic of...
