The 17th annual Kumeu Classic Car and Hot Rod Festival took place last weekend, and it was a scorcher.
Despite crowd numbers and swap site numbers being down on previous years, the event was a huge success. The new Retro area being the highlight for many. With stands such as Rita Sue vintage boutique and the Teaser Lounge amongst a mix of cool old style cars, the area was packed out both days.
Traders had a mixed response, with some saying sales were slow and others struggling to keep up with demand.
The show shed, which should feature the pinnacle of local cars was again a little disappointing, with many better cars being found outside in the outdoor display area, but Kumeu isn’t all about top level show cars, it’s about all cars and having a great time.
