late night photo shoot
"all who joy would win must share it - happiness was born a twin"
byron from "don juan"
a 1958 austin a35 as5 4 door saloon, she appears to have spent most of her life in the north island (nz) from new, where she was first registered on feb. 28, 1958.
after a few owners, & in scruffy but good condition,
she went to live with brian aroa, of hamilton, in 1994.
he put much time & effort into bringing her back to glory - not 100% original but close - & having her repainted in a more modern (hyundai) metallic leaf green.
she changed caretakers again, before I picked the wee lass up
from auckland & drove her down to christchurch
- an epic journey over 2 nights, a ferry ride & over 1000 kms!
3.47m long & 1.4 m wide
will comfortably seat
3 adult passengers.
she has seat belts both front & rear, is sealed,
& has some storage in the boot.
