Americarna 2019

Devon Street, New Plymouth, New Zealand

20-23 February 2019

Taranaki, New Zealand

We are limiting the number of vehicles for the 2019 event. American Left Hand Drive Vehicles are permitted, new or old.
Special interest vehicles, which along with all the Classics, Customs and Hot Rods, is what Americarna has been built on.

Anyone wishing to enter a NZ new RHD Mustang must contact for prior permission before entering.

Registration Fees 2019 


additional  $50.00 per passenger

Please note that the Registration Fee includes

  • 4 x day Event Entry;
  • Wednesday Welcome Function entry plus Food and Beverage voucher;
  • Saturday Farewell Function entry;
  • Eligibility for Spot Prizes.

Why the stepped entry fee?  Simple, those who leave it till close to the event to register add additional workload that Nadine and Aimee (my P.A) are unable to cope with and we have to contract in an additional person to do the processing along with other tasks.

So the incentive is there to register early.  Passengers will still be the same at $50.00 and the registration fee includes access to the functions.


  • Only registered entrants and passengers will be eligible for spot prizes.
  • No wrist band, no prize.
  • At the morning giveaways, Nadine and Bob will be spread amongst the entrants to choose prize winners to make it fairer for everyone.
  • We will have a substantial amount of prizes again this year to give away.


This year it will be held at the TSB Stadium from 3:00pm (same location as registration and where we depart from daily).

So cruise back from Opunake to the Stadium, get your free beverage and snack from the BBQ (tickets included in registration), get out the deck chair, sit back and relax, listen to the band or mingle – meet old mates and meet new mates.  “If wet” we will be inside the Stadium.

This leaves the evening free for you to do what you want. 

Ferry Crossing on the Interislander 

If you are travelling up from the South Island we have had wonderful discount offered to our entrants travelling to the North Island for this event.  Please follow instruction carefully as it applies to a particular travel package.
