Cars from 1918 to 1987:
Belair, Auburn, Cadillac, all the classics. The team have restored a 1937 Bedford bus, once used to take local Hamilton children to school. Watch out for a tiny three-wheeled car called the Messerschmitt, immediately identifiable by its transparent bubble canopy. And their prized possession the 1937 Bugatti - currently under restoration. The Bugatti is one of only three of its kind ever manufactured. Tom, the founder of the museum purchased the car in a French auction after the vehicle was found in a barn where it had been sitting for more than 40 years. Follow the Bugatti journey here.

Big Tree was one of New Zealand's first petrol companies, bought out by Shell in the 1950s. The BP sign hanging from the roof, pride of place in the centre of the museum was found in the canals of Amsterdam along with 10 others. They had been there for 25 years, you can even see the water stain line. This sign is 60 years old.
