We are most grateful for all the support we have received from friends and customers all around the World following the Earthquakes that have caused so much devastation in Christchurch.  Sadly, our two lovely old buildings were demolished in July (2011).  We were very lucky to be able to recover most of our customers' cars that we had for sale on consignment and were able to save a lot of the memorabilia that we had on display.  All our stock was destroyed by water that had come through the collapsed roof, but the memorabilia which was in display cases had an extra level of protection and mostly survived.


As from 1st March 2012, we are back in business buying and selling classic cars. See our stock list of classics for sale on this web site.

With over 23 years experience, we have contacts thru out N.Z. and around the world.
Because of our contacts many cars are sold without even being advertised.
Please phone or email if you are looking for a particular classic or have a car you want us to sell.


We are now taking orders for the fabulous new range of Morgans available in 2012, including the 3 wheeler.
Our demonstrater is here for you to test drive today.
Motoring books and models will still be a while away.

We are developing our web-site in to something rather more professional than what we have now with the facility for on-line shopping and meanwhile should anyone wish to contact us,
