"Having purchased two cars from Jesmond and Gloria, we can’t thank them enough for their service and warm and friendly approach to the transactions. Both cars were purchased sight unseen having total confidence in Jesmond’s description, detail and assurances that the cars as presented on their web site were every bit as good as they looked, if not better…and they were. Jesmond is totally professional in his approach and true to his word in all aspects of the sale. Gloria is an absolute delight to work with in handling the logistics and transportation arrangements. If you are looking for a quality classic car look no further than Waimak Classic Cars”!"Murray & Anne, Auckland, New Zealand
In 1976, some things just got better - take this Volkswagen Super Beetle for example.
These cars were built to take it. Its wheels are independently suspended. Comes with coil spring / shock absorbers up front - a clever piece of engineering, that gives you an amazingly smooth, comfortably quiet ride - even on rough terrain. In the back is a double jointed rare axle, that keeps the drive wheels flat on the road to give you more control over the car. Also comes with a long lasting engine made out of the same stuff Porsche uses to make its race car engines - lightweight magnesium alloy. So there you have it, she's a pretty tough car to shake loose.
