Kiwi classic gathering

| 13 May 2010

Wellington's inner harbour and its recently rebuilt floating crane Hikitia provided an excellent setting for the Classic Car Show on 7 February.About 40 cars, a few fire engines, a '50 Commer lorry and a handful of motorcycles were parked on the wharves. The selection included a dozen Minis and a tidy Humber 80, the locally-built version of the Hillman Minx.There was a 1913 Hupmobile that had never left NZ, and the 95-year-old daughter of its original owner was taken for a ride in it. A '73 Valiant ute was also there, which has been driven the long miles from Sydney to Perth. Other highlights included a Borgward Isabella and a massive '67 Pontiac Ventura.The event raised funds for Wellington Free Ambulance Service.
