The PDL Mustang has gone through several mutations, but has turned out even more agressive and powerful these days at the Terotonga Speedfest 2006..
The image was taken by my wife Dianes cousin. The PDL Mustang competing at the Classic Car Meeting over the weekend of 18th/19th. February 2006.
Its Dunedin's turn this coming weekend with our annual road race also for classic and historics will send you some images. as its a street circuit they dont allow any high powered cars ie V8's etc.. Several years ago there was a fatal accident involving a Holden Commodore which killed a spectator. The deceased was in a NO GO area).
This put the "kybosh" on V8's etc. on road circuits. Some of the historic single seaters are much more rapid than the V8's.

As is the norm they are all better prepared and maintained than they were in there heydays and with modern technology/lubrication and tires,
they are all much faster than they were when originally raced

"The Team of Mustangs arrived here in Dunedin on Tuesday, 6th. April, night and overnighted here on Wednesday They headed off to Queenstown via Alexandra
which are both located in Central Otago.
There were 20 Mustangs in Alexandra for the lunch break.
They headed off to Queenstown at 1-00pm whilst Diane and myself returned to Mosgiel.
We had accompanied them from Dunedin to Alexandra a distance of aprox 120 miles You would feel at home in the Queenstown area as it has a Bavarian Alpine outlook"

Kaitaia to Bluff: 29 March to 9 April 2004
It won’t have escaped the attention of many Mustang owners that this year is the 40th anniversary of the production of the very 1st Mustang.
To celebrate this milestone there was a major event in NZ, the first ever NZ Mustang Marathon - 3000 km from Kaitaia to Bluff. All seven Mustang clubs are co-operating to organise this historic event.
The "Great NZ Mustang Run" left Kaitaia on Monday 29th March and finished in Bluff 12 days later on Friday 9th April. This was the biggest single marque event ever held in this country.
Dale Mathers from Coastline Automotive on DSOs for New Zealand
I had a 73 Mach 1 years ago that was sold
new in NZ and had a 96 DSO, now this car was a private import! In other words, someone in NZ
travelled to the USA in 72/3 and ordered this car for export,
drove it in the US then shipped it back, when it was 6 or so months old.
Its hard to believe today, but our NZ
dollar was worth more than the US currency back then!! We were mainly
a food supplier to Great Britain and North America, so if you were a farmer,
the government allowed you to import whatever you wanted, hence how most of the Mustangs came to NZ. I still know of a Farmer
that has a 70 Mach 1 that he purchased new and still owns to this
