Cars put through paces
Pontiacs, Chevrolets and Camaros were just some of the cars which came out to play in Stratford on the weekend.
More than 80 cars came from around the North Island to participate in the Egmont Rod and Custom Club sci-fi run over the weekend, with drivers from Rotorua and Auckland among those who joined in the fun.
Starting on Friday night with a social evening, the event included a Saturday morning drive to the Hillsborough Holden Museum followed by a gymkhana in Stratford before a science fiction themed fancy dress night at the clubrooms. On Sunday, participants enjoyed a breakfast at the clubrooms before a mystery run and prizegiving.
Brendon Landers, vice president of the club, had his 1969 Camaro out for the event, and said he and the rest of the members were pleased with the turnout on the weekend.
