  2. Papanui Car Sales, corner of Loftus St and Main North Rd, Papanui, Christchurch, New Zealand, 1960. Illustrates the mix of ages and nationalities of the NZ car fleet of the day, mainly due to severe restrictions on imports in that period. Google 24 Main North Rd, Papanui, Christchurch for a current view. Papanui Car sales cnr Loftus  n Main Nth 1960..jpg

  3. The First Holden car to come off the GM New Zealand assembly line - 1957. As noted in the picture over 140,000 vehicles had been assembled prior to that, starting in 1926. 1957 First Holden assembled in NZ.jpg

  6. A 1957 (Plymouth-based) DeSoto Diplomat somewhere on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. Photo date no later than mid 1964 when the plates changed to black. 57 DeSoto West Coast early 60s.jpg
     
  7. Even though the cars are from the 1930s the licence plate tells us this pic was taken in New Zealand in late 1950s. 36 V8 and Austin late 1950s.jpg

  8. The European Hotel in Charleston, an abandoned gold mining town on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. Built in the 1860s it was finally pulled down in the late 1960s. This pic probably dates from 1955. There is another shot of it just before demolition here - http://westcoast.recollect.co.nz/assets/display/347-max European Hotel Charleston 1955.jpg .

  9. 1938 Chrysler 8 in New Zealand when near new. Very few of these would have been imported. Note right hand drive. Chrysler 8.jpg
     
  10. Masterton, New Zealand in 1954. Still plenty of pre WW2 cars. Vauxhall on the left, Morris in the street, '37 Ford on the right. The truck is an Austin.

    Gulfport, FL - Traffic crash from the 1960's. Chief Roth is directing traffic in the background. Occurred at Gulfport Blvd and 58th St. when an elderly woman drove into a power pole that was being hauled by a truck. She was not injured.

    In the early years, this water tower had a light which was used by the town marshal to summon deputies.

    „The Chevy designers were definitely thinking "out of the box" when they developed this mid-size concept clay model in late 1959 for the XP-722 program.“
