If you're a child of the 50's (as my wife and I are) or 60's you'll love this exhibition situated close to (just over the road from) the Omaka Aviation heritage Centre. You'll pay NZ15 each for a trip back in time to remember vehicles...More

Two large undercover spaces jammed pack with NZ motoring heritage from essentially the post war period. Cars are immaculate, and kept so they can be driven, with keys still to be seen inside some of them! Some absolute classic British motors, Jags, Austins, Morris and...More

I can’t believe others describe this as a “pristine” or “interesting” collection?? Be prepared for the worst of British motoring (Morris, Austin, 1980’s Jags, etc) and some very run-of-the-mill Australian stuff, with just a very small number of less common cars (like the Datsun Violet/160J...More

A "back in time" experience when UK manufacturers sent cars in "knock down" for assembly in NZ. A great collection of nostalgia.
