Gardan GY 20/201 Minicabs of New Zealand (5)

Oops! As pointed out by Anonymous, I missed one Minicab! So make that 16 Minicabs in New Zealand to date. The missing Minicab is ZK-EEO, as posted below:

ZK-EEO (GY 20 c/n AACA/311) was built by Dick Usher of Queenstown and was first registered on 25/1/79 making it our twelfth Minicab and the only New Zealand Minicab to be built in the South Island.  It was sold to GN Hughes of Tauranga on 21/8/84, then back to the South Island with a succession of owners around Rangiora:  MD McMillan from 18/2/86, RB Allison from 8/9/89 then LN Tuff from 6/7/95.  It moved further South nearer its roots to GB Taylor of Mossburn on 3/10/01.

It was withdrawn and cancelled on 25/7/11, but it is currently stored at Oamaru with Colin Hay.  I do not have a record of who took the top photo or where it was taken.  The lower photo was taken at the 2000 AACA flyin at Matamata.
