Trea­sure hunt­ing at the NZFMR

You’ll be read­ing all about the re­cent Porsche Fes­ti­val at Hamp­ton Downs Mo­tor­sport Park later on in this is­sue, but, if you leave that ar­ti­cle crav­ing more, you can al­ways get your fix on­line. We’ve got a huge im­age gallery spot­light­ing some of the most in­ter­est­ing ve­hi­cles in at­ten­dance, and they’re not all Porsches ei­ther — all you need to do is search ‘New Zealand Fes­ti­val of Mo­tor Rac­ing’ on the­mo­tor­hood.com.

Weekly mo­tor fix

What is your favourite from the Aussie mus­cle car era? If you’re a Blue Oval afi­cionado, we’ve got a treat for you — check out this beau­ti­fully pre­served orig­i­nal-con­di­tion ’72 Fal­con XA GT sedan. With the can­cel­la­tion of Ford’s plans for an Xa-based GT-HO Phase IV, the re­place­ment XA GT RPO 083 — such as this ex­am­ple here — is nowa­days the next best thing to a gen­uine GT-HO Phase III. A 351ci (5.8-litre) Cleve­land and four-speed To­ploader leave no doubt as to its cre­den­tials as a true-blue mus­cle car of the ’70s, and its un­be­liev­able preser­va­tion leaves lit­tle doubt as to its de­sir­abil­ity to­day.

Quick quiz

Car buffs take note — we’ve got more quizzes on­line if you re­ally want to test your au­to­mo­tive su­pe­ri­or­ity. Our lat­est is on the Ford Capri, and, with only eight ques­tions, it’s the per­fect size to en­joy with your morn­ing cuppa.
