Are cars a bit like dogs?

Do they say some­thing about their own­ers?

The 6th an­nual Kai­tan­gata Car Show and Run was a great way to test that the­ory, with 400-odd en­tries, and just about ev­ery sort of con­veyance un­der the sun.

I had great fun chat­ting to own­ers, and while some did not fit the stereo­type of their cars, their cars def­i­nitely said some­thing about them, be­cause of the ob­vi­ous pride they take and the en­joy­ment of showing it off. You can’t beat the so­cia­ble, friendly com­merce of car shows.

When I asked some what sort of per­son they thought their car would be, the ques­tion was met with hi­lar­ity from some, and deep thought from oth­ers.

It might be fun to match some of their de­scrip­tions to the pho­tos: gang­ster, zesty, cruisy, Sandy from Grease (?!), New Zealand’s Next Top Model, low and fat, small and cute, happy and ed­i­ble.

Good on you Kai for putting on another fun show, and for a good cause too, with pro­ceeds go­ing to Kaka Point Surf Life Sav­ing Club and Clutha March­ing.
