Car love affair consummated 42 years on, writes Jacqui Madelin
When Todd McDonald falls in love, he falls hard. “When I was 17, I visited Chevron Motor Court in Dunedin and there was a red-and-black 1971 Z28 Camaro in the showroom. I fell in love with it and I’ve wanted one since.”
He got on with life – married, had kids and worked his way up the corporate ladder – but he never forgot that car, and eventually commissioned a US specialist to look for “an RS or a Z28 in good body condition”.
The search took six months, and his red-and-white 1971 Chevrolet Camaro Rally Sport arrived in New Zealand in 2007.
