            Mini Down Under: 50 Years of the Mini in New Zealand (Paperback)

            By Anderson, Donn

            Mini Down Under traces the history of one of New Zealand's - and the world's - best-loved cars. More versions of the Mini were available in New Zealand than anywhere else, and the launching of the iconic car in February 1960 was a larger-than-life event. In this lively and person...al story, the author tracks the Mini's life in New Zealand, the connection between Kiwi racing driver Bruce McLaren and the birth of the Mini Cooper, the heady days of competition success in the Antipodes, the local assembly and marketing of the classic original car and the eventual development into the latest generation Mini for a new century.

Celebrating the diverse and broad-ranging passion Kiwis ha...ve for their classic cars, this new book reflects that diversity by featuring an amazing breadth of cars -- including much loved Kiwi favourites like the Ford Zodiac, Morris Minor and Holden Monaro; as well as modern classics like Ferrari's stunning F40. In addition, you'll find bespoke cars from upper-crust British marques such as Aston Martin and Alvis, not forgetting nimble sports cars from the likes of Alfa Romeo, Lotus, Alpine and Triumph. Of course, we also acknowledge our enduring passion for US cruisers and the mighty V8 engine, and include studies of the iconic split-screen '63 Sting Ray, Cadillac's unforgettable Coupe de Ville and Ford's famous Skyliner -- all of them find their place within this new book. Combine stunning and evocative photography, gorgeous classic cars and authoritative text from the editors of New Zealand Classic Car magazine and you have Classic Cars of New Zealand - a celebration of Kiwis and their classic cars.
