Lynn Bysterveld, pictured in Waimate, drives a 1974 Chevrolet Camaro which she has owned for 13 years saying: "I've always been into classic cars; I just like the rumble and they are easy to work with."

So, they say Waimate is officially home to New Zealand's oldest cars, and Timaru and the Mackenzie are not far behind.

New figures from the Motor Trade Association (MTA) show Waimate has the oldest fleet in the country with an average age of 17 years.

We know we have ''car enthusiasts'' in the south.

Join our Stuff Nation assignment and share your pics and stories about your oldest car and why it's your favourite.
