Matamata Panelworks celebrates open day with Folden


Each year Matamata Panelworks has an open day. Big deal, you may think. But in reality it is a big deal, and this years event was in celebration of Panelworks 10th year in business, so was even bigger.

As well as around 50 odd customer cars on display, the whole street outside panelworks impressive facility was an ever-changing car show in itself. One of the cars that people were most interested in seeing this year was the Rock FM’s Folden. The Folden (half Ford, half Holden) was expertly joined together by the Panelworks team, and with NZV8 being project managers of the build, were more than happy to have it there on display. The car received varying opinions from the 1000+ strong crowd that viewed it over the day, most being very impressed with the vehicle.

As all proceeds from the open day go to the local Matamata Primary School, the place was swarming with children, most of who partook in a colouring in competition of which they coloured the Folden how they saw fit. Here’s hoping they aren’t too upset it’s not pink, as it was in many entries.
