We are going to New Zealand in December. Flying to Auckland and then to Christchurch.
I would like to meet some engine and car collectors.
I heard about a truck museum that we should not miss.
We will be there over three weeks.
Lou, The truck museum is in Invercargill and is a "must see" along with the Motorbike Museum there.
A word of warning, You won't see much of our country in three weeks.
I am two hours south of Christchurch. I can put you onto some of the collectors in the area. There are some good collections in the North Island and in the Auckland area but I don't know those guys
If I remember correctly, I was thinking that you were also into aircraft. If you get a chance, contact Warren Denholm at AVspecs Limited to see if it would be possible to stop by and visit, and perhaps view some of the current projects in their shop. They are located on Ardmore Airfield. They are known around the world for their DeHavilland Mosquito, Spitfire, P-40 and other aircraft restorations.
I know three weeks is not enough time to see the whole country.
We are going to visit a friends mom that lives in Christchurch. Her family had a sawmill in the area.
We rented a car and will be going off by ourselves a lot of the time.
Ironman, good memory, I'm into flying. I will check them out if possible.
We will be visiting the truck museum and the motorbike museum.
If we get around Wellington, we'll check the Southward.
Please keep it coming,
A tv show in Canada called Mighty Trains just visited New Zealand and Australia and if you have time to ride they looked amazing .The one in Australia was called The Gan short for Afghanistan where the camel drivers who help build the line came from .The New Zealand was very scenic .Cheers Mike
