AA Directions Autumn 2023
In honour of the AA’s 120th anniversary this May, we talked to Kiwis who are safeguarding our history and heritage. From a Tūhoe healer using traditional Māori practices to a historian making New Zealand’s past accessible, a team preserving the taonga in our archives, a carpenter who has revived an olde-worlde bar, a photographer using 19th Century techniques and a maker of replica 1931 racing cars.
Also in this issue we investigate why New Zealand’s roads are in such a terrible state, take a road trip in a Mustang from Christchurch to Dunedin, look at what’s on the horizon for the future of transportation and meet a family of artisan knife-makers.
