Rod Drummond has emailed me with a selection of cars and tractors rusting in Peace in New Zealand.
Left: a 1937 Flying 12 (factory).Taken about 12 years ago at Horotiu, just north of Hamilton, by Jack Mawhinney.I wonder if someone did make an offer for it?
Below: Exceptionally rare early Vanguard Estate at Yesteryear Barn, Jan 2007 -
Rear end of early 1960s Vanguard protruding from encroaching greenery, with remains of similar car to right of picture.
Taken at Kiwitahi, Waikato about two years ago
Ferguson at Kawakawa Bay about two years ago
Another Ferguson taken about 2 years ago at Iron Park Museum, near Helensville
I will feature more of Rod's finds shortly.
I am aware that there are other cars and information that could be added to this site to make it more comprehensive, so if you have material and photographs, please let me know. Please send me, Phil Homer, a message at: Phil Homer
