Beach Hop NZ

Hi Guy's ,so whats with Hot Rod Club's and event conditions of entry ???
Here in NZ we have the BEACH HOP one of the biggest gatherings of like minded car people in NZ possibly Australasia,It's held at the beach and is over days.It's an awesome event BUT I can't understand the the organisers conditions of entry !!
Here's one of them,now consider that OK my Van was first registered in 1981 but the chassis and other parts are interchangeable with HQ"s
which are allowed to enter.
From website !!
Can I apply to bring my car to the Beach Hop?
Yes – any car made BEFORE 1972 can apply to come to Repco Beach Hop 17. Later model USA cars MAY apply to register however entry is at our discretion and our decision is final and no further correspondence will be entered into.

So can anyone tell me the difference between MADE and BUILT ??
How can a car first registered in 2016 with absolutely nothing on the car made Pre 1949 (except the shape, in Fiberglass) can be classified as MADE Pre 1972 ??
I would love to be able to entre my Panel Van but I cant !! because it's registered as 1981 .
What do you think???
Cheers Kev

It's a Hot Rodder thing, don't know about NZ but over here if it's not pre-48 or at least a US model they don't want to know about it.

We have the Nostalgia Drags here and originally they had a cut off for Aussie cars of something like 1970 but US cars was OK up to 1978. They didn't get the numbers they wanted so they relaxed the rules and let up to 1972 Aussie to get a few more cars. Once they got more cars they changed the rules back. Even to the point where a previous years bracket winner was denied entry because his car no longer met the cut off.

a WB doesnt look like a HQ but a fibreglass '48 looks like a '48.
its just the look they are after for that show. Stick a HQ front clip on your van and enter it as a HQ. You could just park it outside then go in and enjoy the day.
the Distinguished Gentlemans ride is for motorbikes that are old or classic or look like they are old or classic. They like a new Ducati Scrambler but not a much older GSXR1100 Its just a style they want to go for.

I have hot rods and Old Holdens and Yank cars. , I don't take my rod to a Holden Show, I don't take Holdens to a yank car show., etc, You have to draw the line somewhere, it's their show, they make up the rules.

"If your car has quarter vents, a diff at the back, and was available with wind-down windows, you may talk to me.
Otherwise I am not interested. Amen."
