I wrote posts during the Wellington Mayoralty about the abundance of classic cars being driven by would-be councillors – no doubt in an attempt to be noticed.
It’s happening again, but with the general election. Perhaps it’s just a Wellington thing but I spotted Stephen Franks, National Party candidate for Wellington Central, driving a very cool gold VW Beetle – I’m assured by his website that it’s a 1955 classic.
Is this an attempt to be ‘hip’?
It’ll certainly appeal to the baby boomers. Well, the car will at least.
