Drawing on two decades of involvement with the local classic car scene, NZ Classic Car magazine has selected over thirty gorgeous classic cars in order to celebrate our nation's continuing love affair with the automobile. Celebrating the diverse and broad-ranging passion Kiwis have for their classic cars, this new book reflects that diversity by featuring an amazing breadth of cars -- including much loved Kiwi favourites like the Ford Zodiac, Morris Minor and Holden Monaro; as well as modern classics like Ferrari's stunning F40. In addition, you'll find bespoke cars from upper-crust British marques such as Aston Martin and Alvis, not forgetting nimble sports cars from the likes of Alfa Romeo, Lotus, Alpine and Triumph. Of course, we also acknowledge our enduring passion for US cruisers and the mighty V8 engine, and include studies of the iconic split-screen '63 Sting Ray, Cadillac's unforgettable Coupe de Ville and Ford's famous Skyliner -- all of them find their place within this new book. Combine stunning and evocative photography, gorgeous classic cars and authoritative text from the editors of New Zealand Classic Car magazine and you have Classic Cars of New Zealand - a celebration of Kiwis and their classic cars.
