Tom Andrews

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.

 

Anjelique Jones

Diner Manager

aka Bettie Rage has 10 years experience in the hospitality industry, makes a mean long black and is an avid animal lover. If you are vegan or have dietary requirements she is your go to gal.  Winner of Miss Pin-up 2015 she's a regular on the vintage event circuit and the face of many events here at the diner and museum.

 

Abby Dixon

Kitchen & Functions Manager

Abby is one of a those super rare 'morning people'- even without coffee. She's always buzzing around the diner making sure things run smoothly and always with a spring in her step. 6 years in the industry and a mean work ethic makes her an invaluable member of the team.

 

Emily L'Huillier

Museum Manager

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 classics 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 -  a two year old daughter Ava and brand new twin boys!

 

Toni Hamlin

General Manager

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.

 

Laith Dixon

Head Chef

Laith prides himself on making one of the best good ol' fashioned burgers in town. 6 years in the kitchen has taught him people always come back for good food. His two kids at home are the toughest of critics - our homemade waffles need constant taste testing after all!
