"I have had a yearning to purchase a vintage or classic car for a number of years and have read Classic Car magazines and trolled internet auction sites until I came to the Waimak Classic Cars Web site. There was a certain classic car listed that was very close to marque and vintage of my first car I ever owned. It was early 50s English favourite. I contacted Jesmond by email as an initial inquiry and he responded promptly and gave me background of the vehicle in addition to what was described on the web site. Obviously an inspection was vital. With then roading problems between Marlborough and Canterbury a convenient time to visit Waimak was agreed given we decided to include a family visit to CHCH to coincide Jesmond was extremely flexible and agreed to meet us in Rangiora to take us to his display site. It certainly was a pleasure to meet both Jesmond and Gloria and it was clear from the outset we were dealing with very good honest and genuine people. We did not purchase the vehicle of initial choice. Whilst a lovely car heart was not where the head was. It just would not fit in my garages! After inspecting and admiring many fine examples we fell in love with a rare for NZ near finished restored 1947 Rover P2. The purchase including a service plus up to date warrant and registration was completed and Gloria arranged the transport of the vehicle to us here in Blenheim. I could not fault the professionalism coupled with warm friendly attitude of both Jesmond and Gloria and strongly commend them to anyone seeking a purchase and or sale of their classic car. Post purchase communication and advice was excellent."Mike & Barbara, Blenheim, Marlborough, New Zealand
Although sharing a name with the motorcycle manufacturer, British firm Triumph Motors used to make some highly desirable sports cars, with the TR6 being one of the company's most famous creations. There is a feeling of almost awesome solidity with this car, as though the car was carved out of a single block of steel. That solid feeling comes from the taut, low built chassis, with rugged four wheel independent suspension. Its a car for precise driving designed by engineers that really understand sports cars. This car has long-legged, go forever performance from its high-torque six cylinder engine and I think this can be agreed by TR6 drivers anywhere or by people who have simply driven in one.
