Helping the New Generation

A New Initiative from Moss Motors Admit it. At least once, you have walked out of the supermarket and almost gotten into the wrong car. No harm. No foul. The car you approached probably looked very much like your daily driver. Today’s modern cars are designed in wind tunnels for maximum aerodynamic efficiency. With all…

Don’t Postpone Joy

My father got polio when I was two years old. He demonstrated that being disabled would not hold him back from doing anything, like working under the car, creating hand controls, or climbing a few steps on a ladder with a leg brace and crutch. His example would become my way of life. On Labor…

Moss Profile: Ken Hyndman

Long, long before working in the Technical Support department at Moss Motors, I was a “dopey kid from Kiwitahi” who traveled to England and started knocking on the doors of race shops. I do not think that would work today. A love of motorsport runs strong in my family and in the whole of New…

Careful What You Wish For, Young Feller

There’s a well-known restaurant in our area, famous for their Oak Pit Barbecue, and for serving up so much food no one who enters thin will go home that way. Outside certain examples of the food service industry, getting too much for your money is a rarity. That is unless you show up asking for…
