Whangamata was hopping
The fact that there was just four months between Repco Beach Hops didn’t dampen the enthusiasm for the 21st edition. Quite the opposite. April ‘21’s NZ Petrolhead brings you extensive coverage of what proved to be one of the biggest Hops yet, and one that had a successful first-ever cruise to Thames. We also get up close and personal with Auckland Hot Rod Club to mark its upcoming 60th anniversary, and there’s plenty of wheelstanding action from the Classic Cover Nostalgia Drags. Caroline Bay Rock and Hop, the Sopranos Hot Rod Picnic, and Matamata Car-O-Rama round out the event coverage. At the front of the magazine is a feature on a homebuilt four-door Merc mild kustom, and at the back are pages upon pages of classified adverts.
