The Beach Hop team has been making great progress on the 2016 Repco Beach Hop giveaway car. The ’33 coupe, dubbed ‘ZZ Hop’, is being built as a replica of the similarly shaped car owned by Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top fame. As always, the car will be given away at the festival, which takes place in Whangamata over March 30– April 2. The Beach Hop crew would like to convey its deepest gratitude to the following companies, which have all been instrumental in the car’s build: Repco, Ford New Zealand, Kiwi Konnection, California Roadster Company, Pete Osborne Productions, Custom AutoGlass, EDL Fasteners, Coby Performance Exhausts, and Kruzin Kustoms. The plan is to get the car finished as soon as possible so that it can be displayed at various events around the country until Beach Hop kicks off. Make sure to check it out when you see it, as, all going well, it could end up in your shed!
