Some words from our customers...

"I can personally vouch for The MGC - a fantastic fun drive and memorable experience with great service from Vintage Classics!"

Alison Barnard

"I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you once again for a wonderful day-and-a-bit with the MGC. We had such a fabulous time, and I was genuinely sad to drive away last night in my soulless 'box'; more so after it tried to throw me through the windscreen by my only dabbing the brakes, which I thought was a rotten trick.

I was very impressed by the quality of the whole experience, including your immaculate hand-over procedure. You have clearly put a lot of thought and care into every part of your business, from the information pack you send out with booking confirmation to the presentation of suggested routes and the cars themselves.

Totally enjoyable, loved it, want to come back."

Mr Kennard from Oxfordshire

"What a superb weekend we had at the wheel of your Audi Quattro!

Your attention to detail is second to none and your advice on tourist routes, accommodation and sightseeing was a real bonus as we are from Scotland and don't know the area at all. We ended up getting wonderfully lost thanks to our inability to read a map and our utter excitement at driving the Quattro! What fun!

Thanks again for everything and for making this weekend as DCI Gene Hunt and "Bolli-Knickers" a wonderful reality!!

We thoroughly recommend Vintage Classics to anyone fond of classic cars and especially to those hooked on BBC's Ashes to Ashes series like we are!!"

Mr MacLachlan and Ms Malcolm from Scotland

"We certainly enjoyed our day in the Alfa. We went up to Bibury first and then on to The Lamb at Burford for a very nice lunch, followed by a cruise up to Bourton–on–the– water. The 2000 GTV was a lovely experience; the beautiful design and the sound of the alloy twin–cam was a really bit of nostalgia from my youth of borrowing my father’s 1977 Alfetta. We enjoyed the day immensely and we will certainly recommend you to my fellow car enthusiast friends.

Many thanks for the birthday wishes – I will certainly remember this one as an Alfa birthday."

Mr and Mrs Anderson from Hampshire

"Just wanted to pass on my thanks for all your help with organising Mark’s birthday surprise and the delivery of the car.

As you may have noticed he loved the car and had a brilliant time driving it around, I’m surprised he gave you the keys back!! I will definitely recommend your company to anyone else that is interested in the experience"

M Kennell from London

"I hired the GTV for my sister's wedding in October on the Isle of Wight. As I said when I brought it back, it went down a storm and there were plenty of jealous onlookers and admiring glances. My sister and her new husband really enjoyed it and had a great day after the wedding wafting round the island in style."

Mr Spens from Hampshire

"We hired for the first time through Vintage Classics in September 2007 – an Austin Healey 3000 as a surprise present for my husband hoping to combine with an autumn break. Due to unforeseen circumstances we had to move the date at very short notice and were accommodated (with much patience I might add) by Phil whilst I was trying to re–book our weekend accommodation.

We were absolutely delighted with “Henrietta” (even though we only had her for a day as you can see by the name we began to think she was ours). The route around Wiltshire recommended by Phil and Nikki was delightful and the restaurants recommended on route (all with locally sourced produce) were amazing. We truly had the best day out we have ever had in this country and will definitely be repeating the experience!! The service we received was exemplary and we will always treasure this first of what we both hope are many outings."

Mr and Mrs Ashworth Plant of Oxford

"Back in rainy Holland for just one day and we miss the MGC already! We did have a great time driving round in this wonderful machine. The combination of the powerful car, the beautiful noise from the engine, the landscape landmarks scenic routes nice weather good food and the company of our friends made it an unforgettable weekend for us. Thank you for the hospitality and great service. WE really enjoyed every second."

Mr and Mrs Willem van den Bruinhorst of Holland

"We had a super weekend with your cars."

Mrs and Mrs Theo Andriessen of Holland

"Thank you for a very enjoyable day – the route planner was excellent!"

Mrs and Mrs A Parkman of Gloucestershire

"You really made our day. We all enjoyed the day ever so much and the smile on my Dad’s face was brilliant. It was also a truly amazing experience for me to be in a car that is as old as I am! The car is just stunning!!!! I am sure we will talk about this day for a very long time."

Mr Mrs and Miss Etti of London

"Thank you for helping us have a wonderful weekend celebrating Alistair’s birthday – the Healey was a wonderful drive and even the rain couldn’t spoil it."

Mrs and Mrs A Robinson of Liverpool

"I had a fabulous weekend and absolutely loved driving the MGC. It really stood out next to the boring BMW’s and Porches at Barnsdale in both looks and engine sound! All I can say is I’m saving for John’s birthday – as you know it is the Healey he lusts after!"

Mrs Andrea Newill of Reading

"Extremely grateful to Vintage Classics for a professional and friendly service on our special day."

Mr and Mrs Fowle of Trowbridge

"Fabulous experience worth getting to 50 for!"

Mr Wolchover of Shrewsbury

"Just a note to express our sincere thanks for making John’s birthday treat so memorable. The car hire itself, was of course very special, but we all felt that your personal touches enhanced the day"

Mrs and Mrs J Blake of Northampton

"We had a brilliant time driving the Alfa around the Cotswolds a great car and great to have such friendly and enthusiastic service"

Mr and Mrs Potter of London

"A huge thank you for the wonderful service you provided on our wedding day. The cars were stunning - all I could have wished for and more! They were beautifully decorated and Matt loved the Jaguar MKII. We had a wonderful day and thank you for contributing to making it so special!"

Mrs and Mrs M Dagger

"Thank you for the wonderful service provided on our wedding day. We had such an amazing day and the car was just fabulous - I will cherish the memories of riding to the hotel in it - it was awesome!"
