New Zealand Classic Car 374, February 2022

As modern cars get softer, the cute curves and the raw dak-dak-dak beat of classic Beach Buggy blasts you with raw sensation — and the smiles per mile go through the roof. We check out this timeless classic and its 60-year-old creation myths and legends. We also look at a 1906 Cadillac, and preview the Jaguars that were going to race in Jaguar’s centenary Historic GP in Taupo, now postponed to 2023, thanks to Covid. So, if you want to see them all in one place now, it has to be NZCC! Sticking with the Dune theme, we’ve also got a pristine Holden Sandman that’s also now precious Kiwiana. It’s as ‘westie’ as a mullet —  all business in the front and party in the back!
