The inside scoop on our talented staff members.
Museum Owner & Operator
Tom is a successful Hamilton business man. Brought up in Melville and has lived here all his life. He started off building a ‘shed’ to house his expanding collection of cars and petrol memorabilia as it would no longer fit at his home. Who would have thought this shed now houses over 100 cars and is one of Hamilton's top attractions! The 1959 red Corvette is his fav, he had a model of the car sitting beside his bed for many years before he could purchase one for himself.
As Tom’s daughter Emily has been dragged around antique shops and collections since she was young and is no stranger to Toms enthusiastic talks about classic cars and their history. She has a degree in marketing and a knack for social media. Emily helps bring these valuable classics into the modern age. She juggles her busy schedule with family life - at five year old daughter Ava and three year old twin boys, Taine & Bowen!
Also known as Toms right hand man. Toni helps organise the buying trips to America and the UK. Countless hours of research and planning brings some of the most interesting and valuable cars to New Zealand. She has a graduate diploma in accounting and when not at work can be found yelling from the sideline of the kids sports games or training for her next crazy fitness pursuit.
