Cortina Rebuilt for a Good Cause

A man from New Zealand, Mosgiel, has rebuilt a Ford Cortina Mk2 he bought about 18 months ago to take part in the Otago Community Hospice Charity Cruise & Car Show. This event takes place in Dunedin in November each year, and this year it was November 19. With the aim is to raise money for the hospice by asking each driver and passenger to pay a minimum $5 to enter a car show and cruise, $2,235.50 were raised in 2010, $1,401.90 in 2011, $2,730.00 in 2012, $3,655.70 in 2014 and $5,100 in 2015.

Russell Keen, of Mosgiel, polished his 1600E Cortina to attracted more spectators, which generated more donations for the hospice. The renewed car with a wood grain on the dashboard looked absolutely gorgeous and for a good cause. It is worth to mention that Russell Keen had entered the show twice before but this year was a debut for his Cortina.

The Otago Community Hospice Charity Cruise & Car Show is open to all exotic cars, muscle cars, classic cars, modified cars and anything that will turn heads. So if you want to show your beautiful Cortina, it is a great chance. Furthermore, it is also a great chance to raise some money for a good reason and to bring out those very rare and unique automobiles!
