The Wizard’s Car

The 1965 customised Volkswagen 1200 belonging to the Wizard of Christchurch, New Zealand. This could often be seen parked in Christchurch’s Cathedral Square while The Wizard climbed his ladder for his customary speeches. Christchurch Cathedral and the Square itself were badly damaged in the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 and so it’s been a while since I’ve seen this car out in public. Seeing it again brought back a lot of memories and made me realise quite what an intriguing vehicle it is. It would be interesting to know who designed and built it.
