Southside Streeters Hot Rod Club stages its ﬁrst indoor show in ﬁve years this weekend, with more than 40 cars on display under cover at Howick Recreation Centre. A group of the Howick club’s younger members have stepped up to organise the show. For 21-year-old Chris Williams, hot-rodding has been a part of his life since his dad bought a ’56 Chevy a month after he was born. “I’ve been brought up with it and want to keep it going,” says the ’63 Chevy Impala owner. New Zealand’s top pre-1949 hot rod, the 1936 Ford Coupe of Howick’s Howard and Carol Bond, will be on display, as well as a number of other national win- ners.
