Drive back in time with Vintage Classics

If you are planning a wedding or red carpet event with a vintage vibe, VINTAGE CLASSICS has the set of wheels to make your event picture perfect and memorable.

There is nothing to beat arriving in style ÔÇô but regular luxury cars are pass├® and have been done to death ÔÇô so vintage car enthusiasts will be turning heads by rocking up in 1920 and 30s wheels.

Ineeleng Kavindama, the brains behind Vintage Classics has always loved vintage cars and has now decided to turn her love into a business. Her collection of vintage cars is being rented out for weddings, red carpet events, the film and music industry and other related lifestyle events.

“Our range of classic vintage automobiles are a rare collection and boast of a rich history dating back from 1927 Ford hatchback model which was popular before the World’s Great Depression of 1929 up to the  second World War of 1945. Our collection covers various models of vintage classics because we are aware that people have different tastes when it comes to cars. Hence we possess a mixture of almost all prestigious classic brands, in our fleet of 10 vintage classics to appeal to our wide range of clientele for rental/hire purposes”. The vintage collection will be tailored to cater for low, medium and high budget clientele hence the variety of cars in our fleet. The objective of this initiative is for all Batswana to be a part of this vintage lifestyle experience; we do not want it to be perceived as if it’s for the exclusivity of the rich and famous.

Vintage Classics also has the following brands in their collection; the1927 Ford Model A, the 1938 Chevrolet model, the British 1947 Austin 10. These three models were very popular in classic movies like the 1939 Gone With the Wind Hollywood movie starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh. The range also includes popular vintage classics of the 60s like the 1963 Austin Cambridge, the 1965 Rolls Royce Princess Vanden Plas model, the 1967 Australian Holden model and the 1967 Volkswagen Notchback model. Popular models of the 70s include the German 1971 Mercedes Benz 230 model and the British Rover P6 of 1973.  The British Rover P6 was voted European Car of the year in 1964(The very first winner of this title). Lastly the collection also includes one of the King Kong’s of the luxury automobiles industry- the 1983 Range Rover model which is ideal for rough terrains like the Okavango and Kalahari landscape.

Kavindama also stated that, “our vintage wheels collection is not just about glitz and glam lifestyle, as we also intend to open this “mini-museum” to the public for viewing and appreciation of the rare automobiles.  The site can be used as a tourist attraction and a cultural referral point for educational purposes to benefit our Tourism industry. It’s important for the coming generation to know even the history of the modern cars that they see on the road and those used in the film industry as these are rare collectables that the public do not come across on a daily basis”.
