We had a Young Fella a B-Cat from down Wanganui way fly in for a rating with Wayne.
It's a beast she is a 750 (JLZ is a 701) imported from the U.S.A this one powered by a 110hp Viking Motor (Honda. Apparently on cars they get 700hp !!!!!!!)

Interesting story whilst he was flying outa WN one crappy night in IFR conditions at 3000ft the front cylinder of the left engine LHS in his Cessna 421 left home explosively blew a massive hole in cowl cylinder never found luckily he was able to feather prop and land at Paraparaumu.
