Barry Meguiar in NZ for Americarna, and One Night Only in Auckland
Monday, 11 January 2010

It’s not long to go now before Barry Meguiar, CEO of Meguiar’s and presenter of Car Crazy TV, touches down in New Zealand to film two special episodes of Car Crazy. He’ll be here from 22 – 27 February 2010, where he’ll be at the fantastic Americarna with his full Car Crazy film crew! They’ll be showcasing the unique New Zealand car scene all around the world through the TV Show, in countries such as US, Canada, Puerto Rico, India, Central and South America and of course New Zealand (Car Crazy TV airs on Sky TV).

Americarna is one of the premier events on the calendar for American Car lovers and Barry and his Car Crazy crew will be spending the five days capturing the cars, people and scenery that bring more people back to Americarna year after year.

For those Aucklanders who can’t make it to Americarna we’ve organized a special three hour Car Crazy Show & Shine on 22 February 2010 between 6-9pm, where for one night only, he’ll be filming in Auckland before heading down to New Plymouth with the full Car Crazy team to film at Americarna. The Car Crazy Central Show & Shine will be held at Smits Group’s Head Office on Greenmount Drive, East Tamaki. Aside from the fantastic opportunity to swap car stories with The Ultimate Car Guy, there’ll also be a barbeque, demos and spot prizes on the night.

We have a truly unique and varied car scene in New Zealand that’s worth showing off so let’s show Barry and his crew just how car crazy us Kiwis are!

We’d love to see you here with your cars but be quick because there are only enough parking spaces for 120 cars at this stage, so please register with us as soon as possible. If you are registering by email, please attach an image of your car so we can set the scene for the camera crew. Even if you’re not showing a car, we need you to register for catering purposes.

“I’m looking forward to catching up with you all again in either Auckland or New Plymouth” - Darlene Smits, Director of Smits Group.
