New Zealand Classic Car 365, May 2021

When this month's featured 356 A Coupe and 356 Speedster entered the winners circle to be judged in the coveted Teams Event competition at this year's Intermarque Concours d’Elegance and 50th Ellerslie Classic Car Show, they were always going to be hard to beat. We take a closer look at these sublime examples and find out what it takes to be a winning combo. We also celebrate 60 wonderful years of what’s often referred to as the world's most beautiful car - the E-Type Jaguar and look back at the various models that made it a British icon. If you love chrome then look no further than our featured 1952 Cadillac Series 62 convertible and if something a little less ostentatious takes your fancy then you’ll love reading all about our featured Datsun 1200 SSS, one of our very own. Whilst the country, and the rest of the world, have struggled on and off with the Covid pandemic, which has literally brought travel to a standstill ,we take the opportunity to start exploring our own backyard and head through the Takaka Valley. We may not be able to fill the void left by the absence of international visitors, but what a great way to enjoy a classic car road trip.
