’71…’88…’92…’06… No, it’s not bingo.

These are the years of the cars that were unloaded today and are now safely inside the building… two of my favourites included:

They’ve been travelling by sea for weeks all alone in their containers… waiting for you to come and see them :)

    If this link doesn’t work type in ‘Kitty litter’ into the Te Papa blog search. I was there watching the Toyota Racing Series cars and checking out the potential audience for our F1 exhibiton. I had so much fun!
