Eureka. A hot-rod book written by a man steeped in hot-rod lore and well-known to the fraternity.
The result is a chatty road trip the length and breadth of New Zealand, visiting professional workshops and private sheds. Packed with colour pics accompanied by short introductions that emphasise the people and their passion, rather than dry technical info, The Kiwi Hot Rodder's Guide to Life is a book for those wanting to see where the rolling artworks come from. Those who create them live the passion - one segment covers a living room accessed by two roller doors and containing twin couches alongside six cars.
We have five copies of Steve Holmes' The Kiwi Hot Rodder's Guide to Life to give away. Email your name and address to email@example.com, with "hot rod" in the subject line, by 9am on December 21 to be in the draw.By Jacqui Madelin
