BEACH HOP 14
Sony Beach Hop 2013 - Newsletter #8
In our last newsletter we proudly announced we are recognising the Ford Falcon at Sony Beach Hop 13 and introduced our first promo car – a 1965 Ford Falcon Futura. We are now pleased to unveil our 2nd Falcon – this beautiful 1965 Falcon Ranchero. It matches the Futura perfectly and we can’t wait to show you the 2 cars together at Famous Pacific Shipping’s agent in Los Angelos. You’ll find more photos of this beauty on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/BeachHopCars

Retro Caravan Show sponsored by Vintage Caravan Magazine
Retro Caravans are rapidly gaining popularity so we have re-vamped the Retro Caravan Show thanks to our sponsor Vintage Caravan Magazine. We are working with the Whangamata Area School to provide camping at the school grounds right by the Main Road from Thursday night until Sunday afternoon. Caravans must meet the “Retro” criteria to be able to camp and be part of the show on Saturday 23rd March. The FREE bus service route will be extended to visit the show on Saturday although the venue is only a 5 minute walk from the Repco Pre 49 Hot Rod Show at the Whangamata Club. We’ll announce camping details very soon.

Fasten Your Seatbelts!
Sony Xplod Beach Hop 12 kicks off tomorrow! And already there are plenty of cars cruising the streets of Whangamata and the atmosphere is building up… We can’t wait! For those of you travelling, please be careful on the roads as we want to see you here in 1 piece.
Yellow Car Update
This little Hot Rod will KNOCK YOUR SOX OFF! Our latest addition to the THANK YOU list is Mark Stokes of M.S Vehicle Certification who has worked with us throughout the make over of the car to ensure it meets the LVVTA standards for use on New Zealand roads. The car is very well built (now!) and a pleasure to drive. It drives like a Hot Rod should – with plenty of grunt!
We didn’t realise this, but the Coupe is the 1st vehicle in New Zealand to be painted with the new Shimrin 2 range from House of Kolor – WHAT AN HONOUR! The ground coat is KD3002 White DTS Sealer followed by S2-14 Lunar Yellow mixed with S2-FX45 Metajuls MBC Yellow and this is clear coated with HOK UC35 Kustom Klear. This is a complete new range for House of Kolor and it will be released into New Zealand in about July 2012.
The Classic Car Fair Website has had a LOT of interest since we launched it last week and there are some very nice rides for sale! Check it out at www.classiccarfair.co.nz You can register online and create your own listing – it is that simple! And if you are interested in purchasing a vehicle then you can get finance on the spot through the Lending Room. This will become the number 1 spot to buy & sell classic cars in New Zealand.
