Experience the drive of your life...

We have a range of vehicles from a 1950's Citroën back to a '26 Dodge each requiring slightly different techniques to drive. 'Rene', the Citroën and 'Charlie', the '37 Dodge are the easiest to drive, usually just needing a short training session.

The pre-1930 vehicles require a little more effort to drive but can be much more satisfying and include New Zealand's only open-top vintage rental cars.

To drive these requires approximately an hour of tuition to learn the mysterious art of 'double de-clutching' and getting used to the throttle and brake pedals being in the wrong place!

Daily Hire - $1000 | Refundable Security Bond - $1000

“If you have never driven a vintage car, this is definitely one for the bucket list - a must do at least once. I plan to to this again next time I am in Napier, perhaps one of their other cool vintage cars.”
