Lee Roy Yarborough Tribute Race Car

In New Zealand

For those of you who have not had the pleasure of meeting any Kiwi car guys from New Zealand you have been missing out. These people love American cars and are every bit as car crazy as we all are. There is a group we are friends with that are hard core Ford/Mercury Aero cars guys who regularly visit the US during their “Down Under” New Zealand winter. This just happens to be our summer.

They have attended the last couple of Tim Wellborn’s Aero Car Reunions and have visited our home on more than one occasion. Cam Crawford and, as Cam calls them, the Fabulous Pegler Brothers, Andrew and Robert, are the ring leaders.

This article is a copy sent to me by Robert Pegler. It is from a New Zealand magazine, Check out their web site for what’s happening in New Zealand’s auto community.

Cam’s build is fantastic and would be a welcome addition to any fast car guys garage. Here is a photo of what he started with.

I grew up and lived in Iowa for a good portion of my life before moving to Southern California. After 20+ years we now live outside Nashville Tennessee. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle especially the 1969/1970 NASCAR Aero Cars. (Check out our other web site at site) As long as it has four wheels and an engine I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife, Katriana, is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. We have a small collection that includes at least one car from each of the Big Three. It includes a Best of Show winner, a survivor, a driver with lots of patina and several others. Katrina prefers all original cars while I like to modify them so we have a few of each. When we aren't playing with cars we are out working with or showing our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at
