Classic Car Hire in the Wairarapa 

Hire a classic car for your special day

Drive country roads, visit new places, enjoy special events 

Classic Rides has cars for all occasions, from old fashioned luxury to a 2 seater roadster; drive yourself or hire a driver

The Wairarapa is classic car country with rural roads unchanged in decades. Drive quiet and empty byways, from the mountains to the sea, and experience motoring as it used to be.

Celebrate your special day with a picnic in the country or by the sea, visit parks, gardens and reserves, enjoy a day at the races or other gala events, eat at cafes, wineries or country pubs

Classic Rides can also provide picnic hampers, rugs, folding chairs and tables, beach umbrellas and even an “old school”  thermette.
