Inside the North Canterbury car museum with a unique, ever-evolving collection

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

About 30 minutes out of Christchurch and tucked away off the side of State Highway 1 is a classic car showroom with a unique, ever-evolving collection – going as far back as a 1913 Model T.

Gloria and Jesmond Micallef are behind the Waimak Classic Cars museum and showroom in Leithfield, North Canterbury, where they display about 60 cars from their 120-or-so car collection.

They've been hosting viewings at the Canterbury showroom, strictly by appointment, for slightly over a year now.
