In order to avoid suffering withdrawl symptoms in New Zealand, I bought a 1980 Golf GTI. Its a little bit cheesy (painted a horrendous shade of green) but its still a GTI and its a heck of a fun car to drive. Now that I have returned from New Zealand to pursue an MBA in the US, I have sold the green Golf and now again drive the red one. I also have a 1980 Yamaha XS-400G motorcycle and owned a 1989 Honda NV400SP when I lived in New Zealand.

While in New Zealand I got a speed-camera ticket... I was endangering the lives of countless millions by traveling at 115kph in a 100kph zone on a flat straight stretch of empty road in the deserted central North Island. You can click here to see the actual speed-camera shot. I was in a borrowed Honda Civic at the time.
