Default Car Crazy TV show, New Zealand

This past weekend I was watching an episode of Car Crazy, location New Zealand. In the opening shots, I notice a Bulletbird off in the distance, lowered, two tone, Dagmar hubcabs. I call out, I know that car, the owner's on the forum. Of course, my wife just shakes her head, that I recognize a car practically out of view.

Shortly after they are interviewing Alistair and his son along side the Tbird. Congrats on your TV appearance Petrolhead, only wish they had shown more of your car.

I just passed the link to this thread on to Alistair in email and asked him if he had the video link to come up on the Forum and post it for us to see. Or send it to me to post.

I met a few guys while I was over in your country that had seen the show and were impressed and susrprised at the quality and number of hot rods and American bodies cars here.

It's 12,500 miles to ship a car from the States to NZ so you can see we're keen on them (or mad!)

Thanks for posting the video clips! It is great to be able to see Alistair, his son, and the car! I will enjoy watching all of these clips. Car guys and gals are the same the world over, I think!

Alistair sent me a bunch of pix of the Car Crazy Car event in New Zealand. So I made him a web page, and sent it to him. Here is the web page for you to enjoy. You will see his '62 Bulletbird in several shots. Enjoy! If you view this web page using Internet Explorer or some other browser, the background will stay in place and the pictures will slide up and down.

Default Great pics ...

Thanks for posting. I really like the paint (black/yellow two tone) on the 56' chevy. Ford used the same combo in the same era. Mike

Hi Ray, thank you so much for setting up the web page, it was quite a surprise and I'm really impressed with what you've done - a man of many talents.
The US film crew was excellent. Very professional, courteous and well organised. The NZ Meguiar's importer and distributor hosted the evening, and invited various car clubs, groups and individuals along to show the rest of the world what's going on here in NZ. After looking at the DVDs that Car Crazy sent to my son and I think NZ came across pretty well, I hope that's the impression you guys got. I felt like a complete fool; although I do it all the time for our magazines, I really don't like being on the receiving end of an interview (:
My son Brad was also very reluctant, although he's a big lad he's just 15 (dunno where he gets his height from) and quite shy.

Thanks again Ray, and thanks also to the Squarebirders who PMed me and posted the nice comments.
Regards, Alistair
