Classic Cover 2009 NZHRA National Hot Rod Show


The Classic Cover 2009 NZHRA National Hot Rod Show hosted by the Wellington Chevrolet Club was held over Easter Weekend.

The TSB Arena became the home to 66 cars for the weekend where they sat polished and gleaming awaiting the 8500 visitors who came through the doors over the three days.

The host club Wellington Chevrolet Club, had a well organised committee and all credit should go to these guys and gals who made the weekend possible and an awesome experience for all those who attended as entrants, trade stand stall holders or viewing public.

Sunday night saw the prize giving take place at the Loaded Hog on theWellington waterfront. With 36 prizes up for grabs, it was a tough job for the NZHRA Executive who judged the vehicles. Daryl Gates, NZHRA President together with Robert Fern, Wellington Chevrolet Club President presented each award. Daryl Gates commented that "All entrants, prize winners or not, were all winners in his eyes as they had made the event such a huge success".

The big prize for the night was the Sweepstakes Award, which went to John Allen of Riverside Rodders in Hamilton. John's 1932 Ford 5 Window Coupe claimed 7 placings in the awards, including Stealth I.C.E which was judged by the guys from Kicker. John's long hard 20 years of building the 1932 Ford Coupe was rewarded by his Sweepstakes win, John has always wanted to build a show winning vehicle, and he has achieved this to a very high standard with his 1932 Ford 5 Window Coupe. Congratulations John, you have built an amazing car.
