Southward Car Museum

 

 

I took my Dad for a visit to Southward Car Museum and was reminded how great it is, it would be one of the best in NZ, along with the car museum in Invercargill… Such beautiful and varied design from the era of fossil fuels!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have very fond memories of travelling in a Mini Cooper – when I was very young my family went on a holiday to the North Island, and my Dad rented a Mini Cooper for us to drive around in.. amazing considering there were four kids, and my two parents and all our baggage! I seem to remember some folklore that Enzo Ferrari was a Mini Cooper owner!
The car beside it is a Riley Elf – my grandmother used to own one and drove it often, right into her 90s! I can still clearly remember the beautiful polished walnut dashboard!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


My Dad has the same motorbike as this, except his a year earlier… He used to ride it school!

 

 

 

 

 

Have to wonder how a Woody Allen movie prop from the 1970s ended up in NZ?
