Negotiating flooded roads New Zealand style in 1934.

Recommended Posts

The first guy didn't put a sack on the radiator. Note the wheels on the AA Road Patrol '32 Ford roadster. The last one may be a different location. That river ford looks formidable.

Those wheels and caps on the 1932 look to be Goodyear Airwheels or General Jumbos.

Car in fourth photo looks to be a 1929 or 1930 Plymouth Model U.

If you look at the front bumper it has the 'line' along the bar - if you see what I am getting at - and I suspect it might be a 1928 Q, even though our Canadian 1929 U car has them. A Google image search of US 1929 cars shows they have plain bumpers. Yes we lost a hubcap that trip - 2014. The car currently has a 1920s Chev cap until we find another correct one. Btw that photo was taken at Braemar Station on Lake Pukaki - do an image search - a stunning location.

The 32 was a road patrol vehicle. I have seen pics of it before.

I agree they are a balloon tire of some sort.
