Great afternoon wandering around the twin rivers car show in Christchurch today. This pastelblau 2002tii was my mvp.

2.5 hours flight away from NZ, in Noumea (New Caledonia)... Tiny little island in the Pacific and have seen : M6s, a clownshoe, a 911 GT2, e46 and e9x M3s.. and an E30. Surprisingly most in decent condition...

Most people here seem to drive by touch, its a sea of smashed up euros, lots of late model Renault and Citroen held together with duct tape and rust. Must cost a bomb to import all this french crap to the otherside of the world in LHD.

What’s with the reverse parking across the street? Coincidence or legal requirement in New Caledonia?

Some sort of government medical place, wasn't the norm... (which involves much more kerb/footpath/touching)

Wellington, I've seen it around a couple of times, but when it was parked outside work I had to go have a perv haha.

(Not sure I should be too specific as it wasn't just parked on the street)

This afternoon, along the Tawa straight heading south (whilst I was travelling north) I caught a glimpse out of the corner of my eye and which I'm am absolutely sure was a... DMC De Lorean! That unmistakable shape and stainless steel body gave it away.

Now that is something you don't see everyday here in lil ol' NZ :). Last one I saw being driven on the road and not on display in Southwards was about 30 years ago! And ironically it was the same stretch of SH!

There were not one but two De Loreans at the Brit & Euro show recently. The "Back to the Future" one and a mint standard one. I was amazed.

Ferrari 488 on SH1 heading south out of Auckland. With the indicators flashing all over the place as the driver tried to find the wiper controls :D

Not one, but two E36 compact race cars.

First was on a trailer heading onto Southern motorway race number 318. 

Second one was being driven on the western motorway, black with RCIS stickers on it.

They seem to be replacing the E30 as the track car of choice, maybe as the E30 is getting to expensive to be a base anymore?

Spotted while travelling down a side street in Parramatta, Sydney on Sunday afternoon...

Genuine? Kit car? Couldn't quite tell - I'm guessing genuine?

Check out the side-by-side with the truck 😐
