Colour takes to the road

26 Nov 2014

If you’re tired of seeing the tide of grey, silver and white cars on the road these days, just pop down to Masterton for a visual vehicular pick-me-up. Owner John Chesmar decided a rainbow or bold colours was more his style for his beloved old 1956 Morris Minor, so he let his imagination fly with a collection of Resene testpots. It’s now bedecked with stars, a Rolling Stone style lips motif, a Union Jack on its roof and some psychedelic swirls.

The car may have become a showpiece but John can be seen regularly driving it around town, turning heads. So if you're in Masterton and see a colourful car heading your way, it might just be this one.
