Rod Millen, is a former NZ champion rally driver and successful vehicle manufacturer. He was New Zealand's rally car driving champion in 1975, 76 and 77 and then moved to the US. His love of cars and off road driving began as a young man in search of the surf. To get to the best spots usually involved negotiating some rugged terrain and metal roads. A career in driving and racing then morphed into building up a very successful vehicle manufacturing business, modifying rally cars and winning US military contracts to develop a range of cutting edge vehicles.
