Got our latest fix of petrol head heaven at the weekend with the 60 years of Holden display in Greymouth.
Have to say I’m a bit of a sucker for the older style cars rather than the new and I have to ask the question – will people be going to the displays in 50 years time and drooling over the 2000 models as we do over the 50s, 60s and 70s models.
Stephen seems to think they will as there were quite a few people milling around the current models but for me it was all about the oldies. They just seem to have more character and more class too. Of course that is just my personal opinion.
There was something here for everyone really. We’ve just focused on the older beauties, finishing with my favourite.
I like to call her my “Thelma and Louise” car – not that she is anything like from the movie but she makes me feel like I could get in and drive off on an adventure of a lifetime – I’m sure she has a story or two to tell, and her story telling isn’t over just yet!
Jan and Stephen run Breakers Boutique Accommodation on the Great Coast Road north of Greymouth. They enjoy getting out and about and exploring the many things there are to see and do. Follow their blog or check out the Tourism West Coast website for more ideas.
