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!
