Below are some of the vehicles we have had through the workshop in the recent past.


1965 Rambler Ambassador Convertible. The only one registered in the Southern Hemisphere! In recently for brakes and wof.



1957 Chrysler New Yorker Coupe. Even the classics need a wof!



1956 Chevrolet Truck. In most recently for a service, in originally for front end chassis and engine repower. Progress photos below.



1947 Ford Superior Coupe. With flat head V8. This oldie was in for some general maintenance and the ever important brakes!





Warhawk Jet Car. All the way from the USA. Owned by Californian Richard Smith. He dropped into the workshop for a visit and fired up the jet engine which churns out 7000 deg F and can reach 431 kph. Richard was in New Zealand for Wellington’s 2HOT2 Handle motor show and racing exhibition 2006. Pictured here with one of the steam trains from Mainline Steam, situated opposite PD’S.
