Trekkas HDR

The Trekka was the only car totally designed and mass produced in New Zealand, it came with Skoda Octavia 1221cc engine, drive line and suspension with a fully welded steel body which could be fitted with one of a range of fiberglass tops.

 

They sold fairly well but with them only being RWD they just couldn't compete with the Land Rover off road, and with the import regulations being relaxed they were too expensive when compared with fresh Japanese imports.

There pretty rare to see on the road anymore, most of them seem to be quietly decomposing in farmers back paddocks, although I am happy to note that the yellow one has been cleaned up a lot since I last took photos of it, hopefully it will be restored in the near future.

 

Shot with Canon EOS 1000D and 18-55mm IS lens.
