Your Automatic Choice (Ford Zephyr & Zodiac) - 1961
It's tempting to think of automatic transmission as a modern invention, but
it isn't. This film, made by renowned film-maker Bill Mason, was
commissioned by Ford 50 years ago to promote the auto option they were
offering on the Zephyr and Zodiac range of cars. It gives a simple
explanation of how the auto-box works, and then gives a tutorial on how to
use it, finishing by asking "Who on earth wanted a third pedal anyway?"

Drag Racing Meeting Christchurch NZ Feb 2013
This is the video footage I took at the local Drag racing run by Pegasus
Bay Drag Racing Club here in Christchurch New Zealand. 8.0 run by the
Nissan Laurel and a 7.7 by the Chevy powered Honda were 2 of the highlights
while a collision which caused a roll over was bad luck but the driver of
the rolled car was only a bit sore. A good range of vehicles from a Lexus
to a Dodge Pickup to a wild V8 Anglia Van
Drag Crash - Stooge V8 Torana

accident at Heathcote Park. The very well built V8 powered Holden LX
hatchback Torana didn't fare so well.
