Classy chas­sis for ev­ery­one to en­joy

Kapi-Mana News - - SPORT - By KRIS DANDO

If you are into chop­pers, im­ports, hot rods and drag cars, then you will want to be at North City Shop­ping Cen­tre this Sun­day.

The an­nual Hot Rod Show, hosted by Western Bays Street Rod­ders, is on from 10am on the sec­ond level car park.

Club vice pres­i­dent Colin Wans­brough says it is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to in­spect more than 100 ma­chines proudly dis­played by lo­cal mem­bers and a few from out of town.

‘‘One of the high­lights will be two drag cars from Hamil­ton; they’re pretty amaz­ing. We have a lot of bikes this year and plenty of other im­pres­sive ve­hi­cles – it’s a big day for us, a chance to show off the hard work and love we put in.

‘‘There will be a wide ap­peal we be­lieve and you can duck into the mall to get a Fa­ther’s Day gift for the fol­low­ing week­end. North City has been fan­tas­tic; very sup­port­ive of the show.’’

Last year more than 1800 vis­i­tors went through. Wans­brough, who will be show­ing his 1956 Chevy, hopes for sim­i­lar crowds again.

The club has ‘‘adopted’’ Flynn Brodie, a Ti­tahi Bay two-year-old who has the rare pachy­ony­chia con­genita af­flic­tion, as its fundrais­ing cause for the year.

‘‘It’s very fit­ting for us to help them, they’re a young, lo­cal fam­ily,’’ Wans­brough says.

The car show is at North City from 10am to 5.30pm, Au­gust 26. En­try $3.
