Prac­ti­cal Dame

New Zealand Classic Car - - Nationwide News -

In 1990, the founder of the Daim­ler & Lanch­ester ( Jaguar) Own­ers of New Zealand Spare Parts Club, Gor­don Somerville — who, sadly, re­cently passed away — pur­chased a 1964 Daim­ler V8 that had been mod­i­fied and trans­formed into a util­ity ve­hi­cle in 1986. How­ever, as is the case with many of th­ese ve­hi­cles, time and rust rav­aged the ve­hi­cle, re­quir­ing it to un­dergo a full restora­tion. This has taken place over the past four years, with the work be­ing car­ried out by Tin Rab­bit Restora­tions, lo­cated in Ka­iapoi.
