Auckland, New Zealand
Cars are my passion and my whole life revolves around them! I started blogging about my automotive-related adventures back in 2010, and haven't looked back since! :)
Welcome to the team Matthew! :)

@PelzersWilly a well deserved win! Such a fantastic build, thanks for bringing it along to the event to show off!

Hey @VEEJAY! That's a bagged '78 Chevy Impala wagon, it runs the standard 350 motor I believe
@Buick Man Thank-you! I realise now it's actually a Special Estate wagon. I'll correct that :)

@tom Now march! Hahaha… love that
@Honeydown cottage I had never seen one before I saw this one… it is seriously SO small!
@Thommo For the same reason I didn't really focus on Japanese cars; Beach Hop generally focuses more on American builds - they make up around 95% of what's on show. Of course there were hundreds of cool cars I could've included in here, but then this would've turned into a huge novel!
Wish I was there!

@Lan Ahh ありがとうございました！
I had tried to find information on T Akabane but couldn't find anything previously. It's thought that he used this car in rally demos and some competitions in Japan, but I hadn't been able to find out any exact details. Thank-you!

@EvolveWRC I would definitely get chased with a rolling pin/some other kind of makeshift weapon if I did that!
@Pancakes @Fredrik Sorlie We are so not going there! Haha
@ToyotaSupraMan This is quite normal. My mother is CRAZY and unintentionally embarrassing like this … in a hilarious way though :)
@wheatgod As I've said, the exact history of the car is a bit of a mystery as it was purchased from a deceased estate auction in Japan. We're pretty certain it's just an awesome replica of the chassis that was driven in Sanremo in the year 2000, but we also know that it was driven at some stage by a Japanese driver 'T Akabane' - we're unsure for what exact purpose though!
@Sillyypuddy Oh I'm so sorry to hear that! These cars are very special huh. We've literally only just got this car running today and it's still got stuff wrong with it lol but I don't care. I'm so in love with it :)
