Events at Waimak Classic Cars

Welcome to the Waimak Classic Car Museum, Events and Function Centre. Enjoy a leisurely walk, at your own pace, around the carpeted showroom and enjoy viewing the 50 Plus Classic, Vintage and Exotic vehicles on display.

There are no stairs, which makes for easy access for all ages. Heaters for colder days, parking space is aplenty. Buses can park within metres of the museum. The selection of classic cars, trucks and motorbikes are constantly changing, some fast, some slow, some high, some low… and most are for sale.  

You can’t help but be in awe of the engineering, design, history and creativity that goes into these vehicles. They evoke memories of yester year and have provenance, of which we know most of, on each vehicle. 
Car clubs love the ‘car of the day’ feature area, and also being able to display their ‘pride and joy’ in a circle, this makes for a spectacular display and easy viewing.
