We are the one-stop-shop for all your car needs, with over 30 years of experience buying, selling, importing, servicing, and restoring vehicles in Hawke’s Bay. Family-owned and run, we stand by the quality standard our customers have known and trusted over the decades.

Meet the Team

Stu and Rebecca MacDonald are the heart and soul behind the business, pouring decades of hard work into their passion: cars and customers! Ken Deihl is our full-time auto-technician and with decades of experience under his belt, you would be hard-pressed to find anyone more qualified in Hawke’s Bay. Mark Fay is our restoration specialist, making sure every classic vehicle is stamped with his seal of authenticity. When you walk on the lot Kieran Scheele will be there to greet you with listening ears, ready to hear exactly what kind of vehicle you would like to purchase and Josh will make sure it’s sparkling to perfection before you drive it home. And chances are if you give us a ring you’ll be talking to Shelby, our aptly named admin/accounts/marketing person. We look forward to meeting you!

Our American Classic Cars have been imported into New Zealand and laboriously detailed to mint condition (although we call it a labour of love!). After months of tender loving care, they are rust-free, non-accident, turn-key cars, as beautiful as the day they were assembled; fully compliant and ready to drive off the lot and into your collection.


Who better to look after your car than the trusted people who sold it to you? We stand by the quality of each of our cars and want to keep them running in tip-top shape over the course of their lives. Whether you’ve purchased from us or not, book in today for your next service, WOF, or to check out that funny sound you’ve been hearing.
We also partner with Protecta to provide the nation’s best Mechanical Breakdown Insurance. In fact, a 6-month policy is complimentary with any vehicle purchase, how great is that?
