The veteran car movement is alive and well in New Zealand. VETERAN CARS: AMAZING NEW ZEALAND COLLECTIONS takes a look at just a small cross section of enthusiasts dedicated to the restoration and preservation of our early motoring history and their cars, many having been saved from near oblivion. With just a few spare parts and a bunch of photos they have risen from the dead. Many of the parts needed had to be hand-made by talented craftsmen with skills almost lost forever. The names of some of the manufacturers will be known to readers as they are still producing cars today, but many marques featured in this book have long since been confined to motoring history.
