Warrant of Fitness

Warrant of fitness is the New Zealand equivalent of an MOT. It’s difficult to find a cheap car that has one. The Daimler we went to see yesterday would never have passed. The man who showed us the car was wearing slippers and shorts. He fired the engine up and it sounded great but there were rust issues that we couldn’t ignore. He mentioned Michael Jackson a few times in relation to Wellington but I think he meant Peter Jackson. The car had belonged at one time to Sir Phillip Neville who I think owned race horses. On the way home we stopped in Upper Hutt to look at some cars for sale parked by the roadside. It was so hot I felt I was going to faint and/or wet myself.

This is Breaker Bay in Wellington we went there yesterday. I might do a painting there as it’s popular with the easel and smock crowd.
