While i had the smashed rear window of our camper van fixed i thought i spend the time waiting in a usefull manner.
Just two streets away from the glass repair shop was the Bill Richardson transport world museum. I was lucky as it just opened for the public.
outside a nice art- deco building, inside an incredible collection of more than 300 trucks of all ages in perfect condition and a complete collection of Ford cars ranging from early "T"s to late 50ties models.
The standard of restauration of the cars and trucks is just incredible, i dare to say better than new!
If your interest goes beyond classic cameras and includes classic trucks and cars, even if you don't need your rear window fixed, be sure to visit this unique museum.
Just put in your GPS : 491 Tay St, Hawthorndale, Invercargill 9810, Nieuw-Zeeland and you'll get there :-)
They even had this T-bird in my favourite colour !!!
I think that would appeal to 90% of us because we collect the older mechanical cameras rather than the modern computerized mini marvels. Those cars represent a golden age of mechanics before computers managed engines and mechanics used screwdrivers and wrenches to fix cars. Apart from the cost of classic cars they are not the sort of thing you can put on shelves in your lounge room.
