Cars put through paces

Stratford Press - - News - By ILONA HANNE

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.
