What seems like light years ago (even though it was only 2012) I had the pleasure of shooting Rupz MkII. It was before any real shakotan cars had appeared in New Zealand, especially more classic-oriented ones. There was plenty of sacked 180s, but the old J-tin was still pretty rare. This MkII had all the right aspects, old school, squat, hippari-stretch, and the boso handle scraping the pavement. I didn’t know it at the time, but this was to be one of those cars that as a photographer I just couldn’t forget.
