Cruise Martinborough

Lets say you live in the Wairarapa and you have a passion for classic cars, in particular the muscle car era of the late 60’s. Generally you have two main options before you, find an old worn down car and slave away every night in a shed bringing it back to it’s former glory, and if you are not the hands on type ,you buy one that someone else has rebuilt. But what if this does not even quench your thirst, what if you need more, what if what you need is the biggest classic car festival of its kind in the lower north Island, what do you do?

For Damien Pivac it was simple, you put your money where your mouth is, stop waiting around for someone else to do it, and make it happen yourself. And Thanks to Damien the man behind this genius idea, this year between the 4th and the 7th of December, masses of classic cars will be heading to the inaugural Cruise Martinborough Classic Car Festival.

It started at a young age with bedroom posters, the Countach of course. This slowly grew into a super car die-cast model collection, fifty five 1:18 models at the last count. At which point it had almost taken full control, the incurable Mad Car Disease ran deep though my veins all the way to the bone. And things for my loved ones just got worse as the cars where now being bought at 1:1 scale, after a BMW, HSV, and couple of Audi's, the disease reached my brain, pushing me over the edge and down the rabbits hole into the world of the bedroom poster.


  1. Hi, love the Cruise Martinborough sign/poster. Are they available in poster form? If so how do I get my hands on one? Cheers Andrew
