Three of a Kind

Three of a Kind: Character Cars from our Collection

This exhibition gives a glimpse into the histories of three of MOTAT’s cars, and highlights the ingenuity of their Kiwi owners. Three of a Kind: Character Cars from our Collection looks at the place of cars in New Zealand society, from the first Japanese imports to New Zealand, to the rise of electric vehicles, home grown sports car design and an unusually ambitious OE.

Alongside the three cars – the Heron MJ1, the Datsun Bluebird and the Volkswagen Beetle – the exhibition displays archives, photographs and objects associated with each car and its owners. Come take a drive down memory lane to discover the creative and inspiring ways these New Zealanders have used their cars – what stories can you tell about yours?
