The an­nual South­ward Car Mu­seum Open House has ce­mented it­self as one of the big­gest au­to­mo­tive events in the lower North Is­land, and it’s set to take place again on March 6. The event not only gives the pub­lic ac­cess be­hind the scenes of the mu­seum, with the op­por­tu­nity to get up close to some of the world’s rarest ve­hi­cles but also the chance to check out the amaz­ing cars that turn up in the car park. As al­ways, guests will be able to go into the work­shops where the ve­hi­cles are re­stored and main­tained. Some of the ve­hi­cles usu­ally on dis­play in the mu­seum, in­clud­ing an ex­tremely rare Bu­gatti Type 57C, will be fired into life for all to en­joy. The usu­ally off-lim­its stor­age sheds, which house fu­ture projects and dis­plays, will also be open, and are well worth a look. The event will kick off at the mu­seum on Otai­hanga Road in Para­pa­raumu at 9am, with en­try just $10 for adults or $5 for driv­ers of vin­tage, clas­sic, and hot rod cars and mo­tor­bikes.
