Visit the most incredible motor vehicle collections from across New Zealand, rarely ever showcased for the public before. From vintage cars to motorbikes, military vehicles to famous movie cars - the owners of these collections take us inside their garages to celebrate the vehicles that have captured their imaginations. These vehicles have intriguing histories, with some guaranteed to bring back fond memories of bygone eras, and others we could only dream of owning. Many have been painstakingly restored by the owner, or totally built from scratch. Discover the beloved vehicles that have inspired exceptional cases of Automania!
