From an era between vintage cars and the textbook vehicles of today, Omaka Classic Cars offers four decades of real cars with real stories from when motoring challenged the limits of both design and technology.
This living, working collection from the 1950's to the 1980's forms a rare and important piece of New Zealand and Marlborough motoring. All of them, or the makes they represent, have formed part of the New Zealand way of life at some point during their lifecycle and all were originally available on the local market.
