Two years ago I was invited to attend Rod Millen’s Leadfoot Festival at Rod and Shelly’s ranch. What an incredible event!! The cars, the motorcycles, the people…a good time was had by all!

I received this email for Rod and Shelly’s Leadfoot Derelicts, which is free for anyone in the area to attend, bring their car or motorcycle to hang out on a Saturday morning in January. If near their ranch, try to stop by and let us know what (and who!) you see at Leadfoot Derelicts. GT

Leadfoot Derelicts

Leadfoot Derelicts is a unique event bringing together a mix of hot rods, classic and exotic cars, vintage motorcycles and cool things automotive for a couple of hours each Saturday morning in January.

Rod Millen is bringing a piece of Southern California to Hahei. Rod began attending Donut Derelicts in the late 1980’s on Saturday mornings. Hundreds of hot rods, vintage motorcycles and extreme machines arrive as the sun comes up in a Southern California parking lot.  “It has been a fantastic opportunity over the years to walk around and kick the tires of some very cool cars, catch up with old friends have a cup of coffee and donuts and still be back home by 9:00 am. I would love to offer the same experience to New Zealand.”

Rod & Shelly Millen will be hosting each Saturday in January from 7:00 am to 9:00 am. Everyone is welcome with or without a vehicle.

Free admission for everyone with or without a show vehicle. Coffee, tea and snacks will be available for purchase.

Event ends at 9:00 am every Saturday so it is literally two hours of fun.

January 4, 11, 18 & 25

Meet at the vintage Mobil gas station on Leadfoot Ranch – 280 Link Road, Hahei
