Zephyrs and Zodiacs, by Tim Chadwick (HarperCollins, RRP $29.99):
We really do have a passion for Zephyrs and Zodiacs in New Zealand and I doubt there are many of us who haven’t either owned one or had parents who owned one (my dad and brother were both big fans of these classy machines).
There are clubs honouring these cars all around the country and enthusiasts get together to admire, drive and compare their cars.
The book is packed with photos and profiles of cars from one end of the country to the other, both historic and current.
The cars are amazing, whether they are of the beautiful and rare Zodiac Mk III Estate in all its gleaming purple glory or a blurry 1964 traffic stop. I’m sure there’s someone in your family who would love to find this wee book under the tree.
