Readers' Photos # 22: NZ Motor Museum

A Lycoming Special

Today's photos come from UMPH correspondent Culshaw, who was touring New Zealand's south island when he came across the excellent Warbirds and Wheels museum ( in Wanaka.  As the museum's name suggests, there's a selection of military aircraft and civilian vehicles - cars, trucks and motorcycles - on display.  

The planes ranged from First and Second World War examples - including an iconic WW2 Spitfire fighter - through to early jets.  There was a great range of cars and trucks from the turn of last century through to 1950s and 60s models, as well as some classic motorbikes and motoring memorabilia.  The museum's clearly worth a visit!

There's no mistaking this as anything other than a Rolls Royce

Possibly the most identifiable of the WW2 fighters - a Rolls Royce Merlin-powered Spitfire



Thanks, Will!
