The Classic Museum - Hamilton NZ: Classic Restos Series 35

By Shannons - Published on 22 November 2017

On the North Island of New Zealand is one of the top tourist attractions in the region. Local Hamilton businessman Tom Andrews from an early age had a fascination with cars and the Chevrolet Corvette, in particular, his expanding collection of classic cars, bikes and motoring memorabilia over the years saw his home became too small (I think we can all relate to this ). The solution was to build a purpose-built building to house his collection, over two stories that now displays over 100 classic cars, bikes and his extensive collection of motoring memorabilia, even the foyer of the building is a replica of a US 50's Diner.
Fletch talks with museum curator Stan Richardson about the collection and walks through the museum, highlighting cars that are rare examples and those that have a unique story. A massive collection of classics from around the world and worthy of a visit next time you're in New Zealand.
