I just had an awesome 10 day trip to New Zealand. The main reason was to attend the Scroungers Car Club's 10th annual "Hot Rod Blowout" car show. The following weekend was the Nostalgia Drags so I had to stick around for that. During the week I got to spend a few days with my parents and also got to check out plenty of hot rod sheds, that's what the locals call garages. I am a member of the Scroungers and I have to give a big thank's to my clubmates for a fantastic time and especially Chris for giving me a place to sleep and a car to get around in. Some of the pics I post will be off topic but since this is a thread about a trip I will put some scenery pics etc in to give you a feel for the country I grew up in and love dearly. New Zealand has a similar amount of land mass as California but spread out out over 2 islands so there are twice as many beaches, and the population is only 4 million. First are some general pics from the trip and then I will break it down day by day, I have a lot of pic's to post, saw a lot of neat stuff so keep checking back if you are interested.
