    Aaryn,

    The shop looks incredible! I like how you have Mike Phillips/Autogeek playing on your TV

    You sure get your share of American cars in the shop. Keep up the great work and keep us updated.

    Thank you Scott.

    I'm doing my best to take care of myself, & Mum has gotten strong enough to start another round of chemotherapy.

    I'm pleased you like the shop, I'm a big fan of your set up too. We are happy how its all come together, just a few small things like - finishing the signage & a couple of pictures on the walls & we should be there.

    Thank you LEDetailing.

    Appreciate the kind words my friend. Haha, yeah I had to have a bit of Mike Phillips on the TV. We don't get any shows like Competition Ready down here just yet but we represent via YouTube.

    We sure have our share of American cars down here. After America, New Zealand has the most Mustangs world wide! Crazy stat but we do have alot down here. The car culture is very healthy, & we have some interesting things down here, from Imports, Vintage, Classics & Hot Rods, the country is full of great cars. I had a nice 56 Chevy Sports Coupe in yesterday & a C4 Vette too which is getting some polishing done when I get to work this morning.

    Outstanding looking business!

    Y'all have some pretty cool cars down there. Didn't realize the care craze was so abundant.

    All the best.

    Thanks Bob.

    We do Bob, us Kiwi folk are car crazy for sure. Iíve never talked to Barry Meguiar personally but I believe he loves coming to New Zealand for the Whangamata Beach Hop.

    Neat stat regarding Mustangs. Glad the car culture in New Zealand is in good shape. Sure helps your business as well.

    If you get a chance, please post some pictures of the polished up C4. Iíve been really liking the C4 lately. I wish the late 1991-96 C4ís would have retained the round tail lamps and the black belt-line trim like the earlier C4ís. But the late C4ís had a slightly nicer interior and I like the front bumper better on the later cars.

    Definitley! Dad was a "Car Guy" & always had his cars looking fantastic & because the car scene down here has always been healthy, I've spent my entire life around alot of differing motoring scenes. I wish he could see us now.

    I snapped a couple of pics of the C4, & I have more but I was pushed for time yesterday & didn't get too many "beauty shots" but here are a couple. The owner tells me the C4 gets a hard time (down here at least) amongst other Corvette owners, almost "snobbed"because it's deemed to not be a traditional Vette? I like the C4, I love the awesome 80's dash display . . . sooo 80's!!! This one is registered as an 89. I don't know a great deal about them to be fair, it's showing signs of wear & tear in places but polished up okay.









    And here is the 56 Sports Coupe I mentioned. I told the Wife I looked great driving it . . . . yeah, she said "NO".







    Always appreciate your comments mate, thank you.

    Re: Final updates on the goings on WAY down South.

    Whilst we are on the subject of the car scene down here in New Zealand, I figured I'd share a few more pictures of what can be seen at a charity car display down here in my home town. As you can see from the pictures, & in the back ground of most of the photos, the variety is vast.















    One for the Ace Cafe fans.






    Pretty sure this is the coolest car there . . .





















    There is always some interesting vehicles to be seen at car events down here. Thank you all for taking the time to browse through.

    Re: Final updates on the goings on WAY down South.

    LEDtailing - Reading what you said about the later C4 Corvettes not keeping the round tail lights or black belt line, I'm guessing this one has been changed due to an accident or cosmetic reasons but either way - I agree with you, the round tail lights are much nicer.

    Re: Final updates on the goings on WAY down South.

    Aaryn,

    Thanks for posting the C4 pics. Love the color. First thing I noticed was the rear tail lamps don’t match the 1989 round style. FYI the 1990 ZR1 was the first C4 to have square tail lamps and the 1990 non-ZR1 kept the round lamps. 1991 all Corvettes went square.

  16. Thanks Aaryn NZ thanked for this post
