This is an auction for THE CARS WE LOVED: NEW ZEALANDERS' LOVE AFFAIR WITH BRITISH CARS OF THE 1940s, '50s AND '60s by John McCrystal.

"From the late 1940s through the mid 1960s, the cars on New Zealand's roads were predominantly British. This was a period when cars were expensive and limited in their availability: we didn’t trade them up or replace as often as we do today and they grew in our affections to be part of the family, or at least a tolerable servant. Indeed, many an English car outlived the family cat or dog; some lasted in the same hands longer than many marriages. As late as 1980 this country was a kind of automotive Land of the Lost, where models long since vanished from other parts of the world still circulated merrily . . . John McCrystal shows through his photographs and interviews with owners and collectors of these great old British cars, just why they are still loved and looked after today."
