Explore the programme for the New Zealand Classic Car Show 2016

10 February, 2016

It’s been sneaking up in our calendar with much anticipation, and now it’s drawing so close we can almost taste it. The New Zealand Classic Car Show 2016 is all set to fill the Ellerslie Racecourse with an abundance of beautiful vehicles for you to gaze at longingly from 10am until 4pm on Sunday, February 14. Befittingly to us classic car enthusiasts, this year’s event has the theme of ‘a classic love story’. Check out the programme for this year’s event below — and make sure you remember Valentine’s Day so that you’re not stuck in the dog box for the duration of the event. It’s definitely one not to miss!

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?
