New Zealand Classic Car 385, January 2023

You will no doubt have noticed an all-time Kiwi favourite on the front cover of our latest issue: a trusty old Hilux workhorse still in service and going strong. Used by everyone from farmers and tradies to accountants and soccer moms, the bomb-proof Toyota Hilux is an international phenomenon.

The story will have you smiling, and remembering how real car advertisements were made using local talent; where Scotty, a city-slicker car dealer, takes the new Hilux to show off to rugged farmer, the late Barry Crump. Crumpy takes them on a test drive on his farm — and the legend is born.

There’s plenty more content, such as an extremely rare Edsel Bermuda woody wagon, a drop-dead gorgeous Italian Lancia Appia, part two of our royal visit special, and our farewell to Pukekohe Park Raceway. Our regular columns are also packed with great reading, so be sure to take time, relax, and thumb through the pages of this special holiday issue during your Christmas break. 

Finally, we would like to wish you, our loyal readers, advertisers, and contributors, a very Merry Christmas and a joyous New Year.
