Waihi Beach, New Zealand 22nd March 2014
Cresta went to her first New Zealand car show on the weekend - The Rusty Nuts Hot Rod show at Waihi Beach.
We cruised with the Beach Hop crew from Whangamata along the winding hilly roads to Waihi Beach. The scenery was just beautiful, through rolling green farm land and fern-filled forests, I am always amazed by just how beautiful New Zealand is and cruising along in an old car makes you appreciate it even more.
The car show was held right on the beach and the cars all parked up on the sand - crazy!
This too cool for school Woody Wagon looked right at home
The Beach Hop prize giveaway cars got to test out their newly installed running gear and pose for a few photos the winner of the prize draw gets to choose between the Mustang, a Falcon surf wagon or the Zephyr (the Falcon was still having its interior done so wasn't at this show)
This Zephyr comes with a matching vintage caravan and some lucky winner will taken them home for the cost of a $5 program!
I had lots of fun getting so many great pics in the lovely afternoon light
They had a great band called the Recliner Rockers playing on the sand - gotta love that double bass!
What a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon - chilling on the beach, listening to some live music and ogling over all the luscious chrome and immaculate machinery...
Even though I'm more of a classic and custom girl than a muscle car fan - This shot was one that I was particularly happy with - I just love the composition of it and the light, so I turned it into a black and white and it became pure art...
Cresta had lots of photos taken of her and even blokes appreciated her - these cars were a lot more popular in New Zealand than they were in Australia and so many people came up to me and said that they either used to have one, learned ot drive in one, or their parents had one...
it made me happy to have my not-quite-so-flash as the other cars Cresta get so much love.
Of course to me she will always be the most beautiful car in the world!
