    Yes I did & I'll post some shots. I first saw that SSK Mercedes at the Napier Art Deco Festival in 2016.

    Great stuff Nigel. I nearly went, but hope to go to Otaua this weekend. Some rare cars at Elsmore.

    I wonder if the Singer Bantam - #27/4 - is the one I bought off Kevin Andrew as a basket case, but sold on as a basket case?


    Haven't seen a Ginetta G15 for a while either. Wasn't that plate on a blue G15, owned by one of the leading lights of the Sports Car Club NZ?

    I am sure that if you go to NZ Specials, home built cars thread? this red Ford 10 Special 341-968- is there. Should be Mr Ranby

    Roger- #186- NZCars- A cottage Industry page 10. I know this car as I trimmed it. Its a lovely proportioned car. 4 friends all built one each off a pattern they made in the 60s. Great story , owner sold it to finance house and family, wife bought it for him as a surprise present -to restore-50 years later.

    I have not seen the Westminster wagon for years. I knew the owner of this car 1984/5 and have always remembered the number plate.
