With the weather gods shining on them for 2020 the second annual Repco Takapuna Rocks held on the Saturday of Labour Weekend in Takapuna was another fantastic day and a huge success in a very challenging year for events.
Classic car exhibitors came from all over the country with their machines and loved the event, as did the public who came in big numbers in 2020, demonstrating the traction that the event is gaining on the classic car lovers' calendar. There was also a great turnout for Miss Takapuna Rocks 2020 Pin Up competition, while the Vintage Markets and face painters helped make a great atmosphere.
$3000 was raised for the event charities Make-A-Wish NZ and Shore Junction and TV3’s Repco Muscle Car Garage took footage on the day. This was played on their Sunday programme in November.
"We are now getting focused and ready to present Takapuna Rocks 2021 and are elated that Repco have already committed to be our Platinum Naming Rights Sponsor for a third year,” said organiser Matt Turnwald after the event. "We are working to keep our current family of sponsors and are looking at how we can make next year's show even bigger and better than the two we have already had.” Great news for car lovers and Takapuna!
