An extremely comprehensive manual for all car builders in New Zealand. Written by Tony Johnson for the New Zealand Hot Rod Association initially,this manual includes everything you need to know, offering a positive approach to building/modifying your vehicle by focusing on what to do to ensure compliance of your vehicle.

The manual is one of a kind and as such NZHRA nominated Tony Johnson for his work and commitment to the safety of all New Zealand Hobby Car Builders, by compiling and writing the "New Zealand Hobby Car Technical Manual" at the 2008 NZ Road Safety Awards. Tony was awarded with a Special Merit in the Vehicle Based award.

Set out in a large binder for ease of updating. Owners are able to register their Manual with the NZHRA using the unique ID number inside the front pages, this will ensure they receive information on future updates, keeping their manual as the most up to date resource for building their vehicle.

Since first being published in 2007 a large number of copies of this manual  have been sold across the country. In October 2010 the NZ Hot Rod Association ownership of the manual shifted to the LVVTA. This positive move came about because of a need to have the Car Construction Manual incorporated by reference into New Zealand 's transport legislation in order to remove any uncertainty as to the legal status of the document. Because it is such an integral part of the LVV certification system, its legal position should be in no doubt.
