With an impressive 143 cars this year the rally left Twizel in the South Island of New Zealand this morning for cars 1932 and older.
Its a annual winter run, chains and tow ropes are a requirement. The 2 day event involves some off road and river crossings. A rare opportunity to experience the actual conditions these cars were designed for.
There was a variety of makes in every state of repair but this year there was mostly Model A's. I only saw one model T?
A great weekend run that looks a heap of fun, why don't you come over for next years rally?
Kevin, Certainly NOT the conditions the cars were DESIGNED for, unless you are talking of the "Irishman Specials" that some create for the event.
Most outside the VCCNZ will not know what the Rally is even about - An off road back country Trials / Endurance run, initially a small 'social' event run at "Irishman Creek Station" the home of one of our (VCCNZ) founding members.

Can't comment exactly as I haven't driven on one but it sure looks like they were made for it. So are the drivers, they passed back through town this afternoon, plenty of smiles and happy people and the cars are showing signs of being off the tarmac.
It sure isn't a small event this year.
What a fantastic idea, should be more.
