Richard Abernethy, of Kaitangata, and his partner enjoyed taking part in the Mt Benger A&P Show classic car show last Saturday, (Feb 22), driving their 1976 Lincoln Continental to the show.
The pair sold a rental property to buy the classic American two-door coupe. They saw it as an investment that would increase in value, but was more fun – “you can’t take
a house for a drive”, he said.
There was a friendly atmosphere when they took part in classic car gatherings, he said.
People often took a second look when they drove by, and the car always got a positive reaction from the public.
