Follow the journey of Simon Crispe’s immaculate E-Type from Scotland to Dubai, to these fair shores and see what goes into building a winning car.

Teams Winner: Team Porsche

Dean Huston was service manager at Continental Porsche for many years so naturally, his 1970 911 is something special. A story of true camaraderie and passion.

David and Michelle Mackrell’s 356A is a gorgeous piece of machinery treated to the best by the best. Their passion for the brand knows no limits.

Survivor Winner: MGTF

This fantastic little MG has a wonderful history and story that begins 80 years ago.

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?
