THIS MONTH IN HOT
Luke & Amie Orpwood are
proof you can live the dream
and they do it so well with
their ’60 Chev Impala.
There’s also plenty of
reading with features, history
plus a very interesting article
on hot rod and drag music titled
“See ya round like a record”.
We take a look at the people
in the scene like our own Ken
Sanders and the talented
Redvers Charles. Then we go
behind closed doors to view
Paul Kelly’s cool collection and
tour Steve Allen’s shop to see
what he’s busy working on.
There’s Part One of a three
part story on the early
beginnings of Sulphur City
club plus coverage of
Marineland’s Run and Swap
meet in Napier. All that and
our regular departments too.
