Yes, those are American flags on the side of a New Zealand road!
It's time for the yearly round of American muscle cars gathering together
 and touring Taranaki!
This year it's the 24-27 of February.

The main street of each town is closed and the cars fill the street.
The sheer number of cars is mind-boggling!

Stratford kids get out of school each year to come see the cars. 


Huiakama School

We came across this school on our backroad journey along the
Forgotten World Highway. The first thing you see beside the sign is a bus shed.

The original building is on the left.

The space in front of the water tank looks like it could be a garden.

The football field has other uses, too!
