Time sure flies when you are having fun! It seems like yesterday that we attended the annual Rebel Round Up at Pukekohe Park Raceway and it’s on again Saturday 15th February. The hot rod and custom car themed event tips its hat to the whole culture around it celebrating days gone by with live bands, retro fashion and of course the old style hot rods and customs themselves.
The action packed event is a celebration of everything old & cool with vehicles travelling from all over New Zealand to attend. This year’s event is the fifth anniversary and as with the past four years promises to be equally as cool and fun.
The features include live bands, hotrods & custom cars, vintage markets, historic motor racing, vintage aircraft landings, flag drop drag racing, onsite camping, Miss Rockabilly NZ & Miss Rebel Round Up pageants, automotive swapmeet, trade stands, cocktail lounge, pinstripe artists, themed outdoor bar, & even a dedicated kids zone to keep the youngsters occupied. Experience the thrill of historic Gasser drag cars, vintage stock cars & historic race cars as they roar around the Pukekohe circuit. Another interesting and growing aspect to the event is the Retro Caravans on display to take you back in time even further.
The event also features the Classic Cover Primer Nationals. This show celebrates old style hot rodding from the 30’s, 40’s, 50’s and 60’s showcasing American origin vehicles of these genres as a real step back in time. The NZ Petrolhead Magazine dedicated show area features pre 1980 American, Australian, European and British vehicles too. The photos shown here are a snapshot of last year’s event which has built on the success of past events and on that note we will let the pictures do the talking. Make sure you get along to the Rebel Round Up, it’s an event which delivers what the people want and you don’t want to miss it.
