"My wife and I recently flew to Christchurch from Auckland to view one of Waimak Cars we were interested in purchasing. 1965 Rover P5. We found Jesmond to be professional, friendly and extremely easy to deal with. He made us feel totally welcome and at ease. Viewing his large collection of wonderful classic and vintage cars was a very enjoyable experience and a privilege Once we decided to purchase the Rover, Jesmond took care of all the paperwork and made all the arrangements to transport the vehicle to us. He was very accommodating. Any one looking to purchase a genuine classic or vintage vehicle we highly recommend using Waimak Cars and would certainly use them in the future if the need arises. Thank you Jesmond for your hospitality and for making our purchase an enjoyable experience."Colin & Carol Gussey, Auckland, New Zealand
Revolutionary when new, and still well respected today, Rover's P6 makes a practical and enjoyable classic.
Back in 1963, the Rover P6 epitomised quality and sophistication that rivals struggled to match. It was advanced, yet didn't scare buyers - in fact, it became Britain's favourite executive car during the 1960s and '70s.
Rover was known as a maker of refined and staid cars for the professional classes until 1963. That was when its young engineers' bright ideas were let out on an unsuspecting world in the Rover 2000. Base-unit construction with unstressed panels, all-round disc brakes, racing-type De Dion rear suspension, even a rallying programme¦ it all lowered the average age of a Rover buyer by 10 years. The four-cylinder 2000 became a 2200 in 1973, after being joined by the pocket-rocket V8-powered 3500 and the more desirable 3500 ‘S'.
The manual box 3500 S was the motorway police favourite and once you drive this car, you'll understand why.

Buy now while these cars are still (relatively) cheap. They are durable classics with family practicality, and running-costs are quite reasonable. Like all "Rover Company" Rovers, they also have a great deal of charm.
Remember that material goods aren't the only things that can be passed down from fathers to sons. Interests and enthusiasm are intangibles that, given some nurturing and the right circumstances, can easily bridge the generation gap and this classic has the additional honor of representing good health and a continuing celebration of life.
