Another weekend on the road & this time the weather was on our side! Apart from when it rained. We visited Terry Caske in Palmerston North who owns the legendary Vandal bucket and a sweet 32coupe. His big block 56 Chevy two door post is garage-bound right now, but was also making our pants tight!
Terry's son Steve has this cool 56 Chevy that he cut down from a wagon. Beautiful lines. We also met their grandfather, Pops. His shed was a magical place. The old Montiperto roadster is in there and going through a full rebuild. Terry's 34 is also in the shed and is a mind melter.
Then we cruised over to New Plymouth and caught up with the Retro Rockers who were celebrating their 10th anniversary. Glen was the guy with the Triumph and Jake's bike is called Captain Flashback.

Man we are bad with directions. Some people seem to have an in built compass, with me and Andrew I think the compass got dropped. It means we see a lot of places we never intended to go though, so that can't be all bad. Nearly running out of gas in the middle of nowhere with Andrew screaming at me that he's going to "die of shit poisoning if I don't find a toilet" is quite a common occurence when we do a road trip too. We split Friday morning to shoot Simon Harmans injected '40 coupe and Russell Kerhaghan's Indian Chopper. And what of Mr Six Bends? Well that's Russell's brother in law Jim and it was after a ride on this very bike that Russell knew he had to get an Indian. We have full stories on both these beauties in issue three. She's gonn be a fuckin ripper!
