    - The Škoda powered Trekka was a light utility vehicle manufactured in New Zealand between and It is the only vehicle designed and manufactured in New Zealand to have entered commercial production for an extended period. It should not be confused with the Renault Kangoo Trekka 4x4, the Kangoo having been marketed by Renault from pins.   Neither is John Guzzwell or his boat Trekka. I'd like to create a Hiscock article, because it was one of his books that drew me into sailing when I was a landlocked little kid. I'll do one for Guzzwell as well if y'all can help me with some basic information.
