We  took a run across to the Te Puke Auto Barn with the SOUTH WAIKATO VINTAGE CAR CLUB a few years back... sad to say this has now this  Auto Barn has now gone along with all its wonderful array of interesting cars, I leave this page up as it may bring back fond memories for some..enjoy.
It was a lovely if not somewhat damp drive thru the rolling back country hills...via Oturoa, twin Peaks, Te Rangi school,etc., it was a beautiful  vista coming down from the hills thru the many kiwi fruit blocks,  out onto the main highway and then left to  Te puke Auto Barn
Here members had a feast of eye candy in the shape of immaculately and lovingly restored  beauties of yesteryear, my favorite was a Chryzler Coupe 1922,  orange and white valued at $130,000..lol only:>)
30 members of the SWVCC,  enjoyed their homepacked  lunches in the well stocked upstairs library, and catching up with old friends.........
I took some pics of a few Citroens that were there.....below.

UPDATE: 2008  Sadly this museum has since been dismantled and all the cars gone back to their respective  owners or sold, this  wonderful  auto venue is now history, and I think now is a backpackers lodge...
