The wait’s nearly over: NAC Car Culture is coming soon!

14 October, 2015

We’re less than a week out from NAC Car Culture hitting a TV near you this Sunday, October 18, at 2pm on TV3. It’s been a long time coming and we can’t wait to show you what badass content we have in store for you. NAC Car Culture is a magazine-style TV show, which means that each episode you’ll see stuff similar to what we feature on The Motorhood and in our magazines, like a couple of feature cars, an insane dream-worthy garage, or an event we think worthy of showcasing to New Zealand and the world.

In this first episode we take a close look at Johnny Burkhart’s ProCharged hemi-powered ’69 Plymouth Road Runner; we have a chat with Malcolm Sankey from Matamata Panelworks, and we soak in the crazy action that the Mothers Chrome Expression Session had to offer.

With 10 episodes per season, and three seasons locked in, there’s plenty to look forward to! If you do happen to miss an episode (because you’re out at an event or in the shed building a monster), we’ll have them uploaded online for you to watch here at The Motorhood, so save this page to your bookmarks as we’ll tack them all here.

Meanwhile, check out the trailer for the first episode below …

The Jowett Jupiter turns 70

John Ball has always enjoyed tinkering with old boats and cars. He’s old enough to think having gearbox parts on newspaper on the floor of his bedroom, while the relevant car sat waiting on nail boxes, was a normal part of growing up. His passion has always tended towards old British bangers. He reckons he’s fortunate not to have got caught up in the American muscle scene.
John’s love affair with this Jupiter started in December 2015 when, with some time on his hands during a Christchurch trip, he searched online for ‘cars, before 1970 and in Christchurch’.

A passion for classics and customs

In the highly competitive field of New Zealand classic and custom restorations, reputations are won or lost on the ability to maintain consistently high standards of workmanship. A company managing to achieve this is D A Panel beating Ltd, of Rangiora near Christchurch. Is your classic or custom car restoration stalled, or in need of a refresh, or perhaps you are looking for experts to rebuild that recent import project out of Europe or the ‘States?
