Get your hands on the latest issue of New Zealand Classic Car!

26 April, 2017

In this issue of New Zealand Classic Car we spend some time with Jaguar’s game-changing XJ220, and discover there’s more to this rare machine than sordid tales of lust and anger.

We also get back on the trail with Garry and Ken as they take on part two of their epic 27-day journey across South America in a 1964 Mercedes Benz 220SE.

Read all about a rare classic 1934 Hudson Terraplane, and we say goodbye to one of Aussie’s favourite muscle cars — the HSV Holden Commodore.

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?
