one of the really cool things was there were alot of local residents of all ages sitting on deck chairs or even the ground, backs of pick ups, or sitting in open air cafes, with outdoor tables , some had beer some had no drinks, there was a car parked on the side of the road with " do burnouts here" letters big enough to cover the windscreen... people waved , and the drunker ones even cheered while crusing round ..

ive never experienced such car wild behavior HUGE local support

Slow Ride T used to have a 6/71 on it that was 25+ yrs ago, my daughter fell asleep on the start line of a local drag event with it whizzing .. really nice black mustang i parked the stude next to ,,, and very cool Hemi A

Thumbs up

heres a link i think pictures are last years event .. but if youse are bored and coming to NZ this is one not to be missed..

http://www.themotorhood.com/themotor...xi3bB6Rnnk2foM

will let youse know in February what the Hanmer Motorfest is like ,, and maybe the Whangamata beach is like too in easter if i can stop spending $$ on the car long enough to save...



then the journey home .. an hour + away from home in the middle of nowhere land and i still cant remember the last house i saw... the battery gave out .. bout 8.30 at night here even some main roads can be eerily quiet for ages .. i rung my son to plan a rescue, when a car stopped to help .. we swapped batteries and follwed them running parklights .. till we got to my place swapped them back and the couple left .. they wanted nothing for their help save to say if i saw a broken down person i should pay them back that way ...

totally wow'd me and totally grateful! there are some good people in the world !
