With this weekend just been being the oldschool Palmy Swap “Meat” weekend (an oldschool.co.nz forum event using the Palmerston North Swap Meet as a loose excuse to get drunk and rowdy), I thought seeing as I didn’t make it this time I’d show some photos of the cars from last year, when I did attend. Hopefully Alex will put up a post of this years event either later tonight or later this week. If he doesn’t do such things I may well stab him in the eye with a pushrod.
I used to have most these photos as an entry on the oldschool.co.nz blog which sadly died a horrible death after some hosting issues. SO, if you’ve seen them before, that will be where, well… either that or oldschool itself. AAAANNYHOOO, on with the show;
Arrival in Wellington from Invercargill, I was picked up from the AirPort by Pies and Seedy Al. Wellington was host to some fine automobile spotting, all things considered. Not all managed to be snapped and some were just horrific, but that’s what you get for taking photos out of a moving car and a lack of preparation.
Holden Monaro GTS
Spied on the motorway on the way out to see this next beast, which was at the time owned my Pies, it has since found a new owner.
Toyota Corona MarkII Hardtop
Then on the way back from the lockup, this was encountered; Thankfully the picture looks sweet.
Mitsubishi Galant Colt
Of course this was not the end of the spotting, there were many more retro and classic vehicles lining the streets of various parts of Wellington and the Hutt.
