Rare and huge collection

We were very impressed with the personal tour we received at this car museum. There were some rare finds and an overwhelming number of not only cars but other vehicles, farm equipment, bicycles and motorcycles, rifles and more. Well worth going out of you way to find this gem.

Fantastic experience

We was in Whangarei for two days, in our last day weather horrible . So we decided to do something indoor. Then we found this wonderful life time experience. Not just for car enthusiasts, this is a place for everyone! The cars are really astonishing and I'm nowhere near a motorhead! The history alone makes this a must see experience. Very friendly staff Special thanks to Mr Tom. He knows everything about this old gems.
