The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch

New Zealand Renault
Ignore the 1926 date on the bonnet, this is reported to be a 1922/23 Renault that was fitted with a pump and served the Queenstown volunteer brigade. It is now part of the Wanaka Toy & Transport Museum but was on display in October 2013 during the Queenstown brigade jubilee celebrations.
