    The Beach Hop. Whangamata New Zealand

    Just got back from another amazing Beach Hop down in Whangamata.
    For those of you not familiar with it, it's billed as a rock & roll show but is mostly a week-long car show over 4 different venues.
    The town of Whangamata is a show all it's own. Every street (and I mean every street) is lined with hot rods, Kustoms, specials and muscle cars, and the Friday and Saturday night cruises would rival the best of any in the world.

    This year was without doubt the busiest I've been to.

    Just put 'Beach Hop Whangamata' into youtube and marvel at the amount - and quality - of the thousands of cars that attend.

    here's a bit of last year just to whet your appetite!

    Great Vids...we were there a few years back and visited a place called Palmerston North ( Kruz Kustoms) a local hot rod builder...some great motors on show and in the build process.
    Funny thing is on our travels around we didn't see to much of the classic stuff...but there certainly appears a healthy group of motors there judging by the vids.

    We went to Americana in New Plymouth. Was a fantastic night. Started off somewhere they done drag racing with a difference on the street. A sort of start stop challenge then off to the biggest gathering of classic American cars, bikes, military vehicles etc I've seen outside of US. There was even a yellow school bus picking kids up and taking them around the town for a cruise. The cars just kept circling the town and the streets were full of spectators. The next day was the biggest static show of vehicles I have ever seen. Completely filled the town
    If it's got tits or tyres, its gonna be trouble
