The Denniston Incline on the West Coast of New Zealand's South Island. Denniston is named after Robert Blair Denniston who was the mineral surveyor that sold the idea of mining this high altitude site to wealthy Dunedin based financiers who went on to start the Westport coal company. The Denniston incline is regarded as the 8th wonder of the world. Denniston is over 660 meters above sea level. The Incline was opened in 1879 and closed on 16 August 1967 after 88 years of service.

Fletch is back in New Zealand for KUMEU, the 37th Annual Classic Car & Hot Rod Festival located west of Auckland NZ. This event continues to grow in popularity bringing together over 3,000 vehicles. Fletch talks with owners of a diverse collection of classic cars including some that are not quite classics, like Daniel's 1961 Plymouth Belvedere that is a real eye catcher but not for the right reasons. The car in unrestored condition is a collection of Plymouth and other manufacturers parts into what he refers to as kaleidoscope of panels, something quite unusual. Then we see a real classic, a beautifully presented 1972 Holden HQ Premier Sedan owned by Renne. The VW Fraternity are well represented in NZ, and John's 1967 Kombi Split Window Micro Bus is a beautiful example, enthusiast Allan shows Fletch a pair of Ford Cortina's 1968 &1980 Models that to the naked eye look well presented other than they both boast V8 Chevrolet engines. Steve's story is one of a labour of love, rescuing his 1938 Chevrolet Flatback from a swamp and undertaking the complete restoration himself, learning numerous skills along the way. Two other restorations featured include Peter and his 1945 Chevrolet 6 Cylinder Truck and a rather unusual modified Citroen with a V8 Engine amongst many other modifications. They share the passion for all things automotive in NZ and Fletch is back with more in Part 2 of his visit to NZ next week.
