MTA100 — Car Show of The Cen­tury

New Zealand Classic Car - - Nationwide Events -

The Mo­tor Trade As­so­ci­a­tion (MTA) is host­ing a cel­e­bra­tion of a cen­tury of mo­tor­ing on Welling­ton’s wa­ter­front, April 28– 30, 2017. Get ready for ev­ery­thing from early crank-han­dle mod­els to the au­ton­o­mous cars now emerg­ing onto the mar­ket. High­lights will in­clude the Shed 6 high­lights reel of a hand­ful of New Zealand’s best mo­tor­ing mo­ments — fea­tur­ing the likes of New Zealand’s first ve­hi­cle, the 1895 Benz, the Trekka, Chris Amon’s Maserati, and Burt Mon­roe’s In­dian mo­tor­cy­cle. For The Love of Cars ex­hi­bi­tion, the carpark un­der the TSB Bank Arena will be­come home to a care­fully cu­rated col­lec­tion of pri­vately owned ve­hi­cles that range from high-per­for­mance to mus­cle, vin­tage, clas­sic, and those cars that hold a spe­cial place in our hearts and our his­tory. Among the many guest speak­ers, you’ll find Todd Niall, a jour­nal­ist who wrote the book on the New Zealand– made Trekka and has a deep pas­sion for this Kiwi clas­sic — he is also some­thing of an ex­pert on the Fiat 500, which was as­sem­bled and sold in New Zealand in the 1980s.
